A Bright Future: Annapolis Kitchen Remodel

Frustrated by the quotes they received from other local kitchen design companies, the Harrisons came to the Cabinet Discounters showroom in Annapolis hoping to find products and design inspiration that would fit their budget- and fulfill their dreams for a new kitchen!


Working with manager and kitchen designer Joe Inscoe, the Harrisons created a beautiful new kitchen that is bright, airy and refreshing. It will serve as the hub of their busy household for years to come…

Harrison5Harrison10Joe: Why did you choose Cabinet Discounters?
Mrs. Harrison: I wanted I high end look at a reasonable price.
Joe: What made you decide to remodel?
Mrs. Harrison: Our kitchen was the darkest room in the house and it was the busiest room in the house.
Joe: Can you describe your experience working with our people?
Mrs. Harrison: I had visited other stores and was getting discouraged at what my vision was going to cost me. The whole process was timely, professional and all the trades, in particular the carpenters, were a pleasure! As in all large projects things came up that needed additional attention. [Everyone] was quick to respond and solve the issue. The outcome is , I believe, a magazine worthy kitchen.
Joe: How satisfied are you with the outcome?
Mrs. Harrison: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
Joe: How do you plan on using your new space?
Mrs. Harrison: The kitchen is the gathering place of our home where we enjoy meals as a family and get rare conversation time with our grown up children.


Brighton Cabinets and LG Viatera Minuet Quartz counters were chosen to create a bright, light backdrop for custom touches and a dark finish on the island which complements the hardwood flooring. “X” mullions used at the top of the stack cabinetry offer architectural detail that draws the eye and highlights the pottery and glassware displayed inside.

A Space for Entertaining in Mount Airy

The modern kitchen has become the center of the home for many families, serving as the hub for creating meals AND memories.

The Fiore family of Mount Airy came to Cabinet Discounters looking to create this kind of space with a kitchen remodel. Opening up their old kitchen, the newly designed room has become a gathering place where family and guests can relax and spend time with whoever is doing the cooking! A beautiful new range, gleaming granite counters and a unique and open layout all work harmoniously together as a result of 2 years of planning with Dave Humerick.

When the project began, Dave was working in the Cabinet Discounters Mount Airy showroom and by the end he had become the manager of the Cabinet Discounters Olney showroom. In between, he and Craig Zimmerman worked with the Fiore family to help them design the kitchen they dreamed of.

FioreKitchen9“At the time Dave was in the Mt Airy office. I went to meet him and I think from that initial meeting to the actual start of the project was 2 years. I still can’t believe that our kitchen looks so amazing and is finally finished.

Craig Zimmerman was instrumental in our project being successful. Extremely talented, great work ethic and high integrity. Gave us pointers on details that we never thought about (placement of range hood, overhang of countertop), people like that are priceless! And we truly appreciated him. Also the tile guy (Jeff, I believe) did an amazing job.

We use our new open space for entertaining, we have already had many brunches. I’m able to cook, talk and entertain. Works out exactly how we planned.” Mr. and Mrs. Fiore


FioreKitchen6“I am very satisfied with the final outcome of this project. This was a total transformation from their original kitchen.

We used Brighton Cabinetry, the Hillsbrad door style in Maple/Harvest stain. The countertops were granite – Emerald Pearl. We also provided the LED strip lighting under and on top of the wall cabinets. We used the Moen – Arbor Collection for the faucets. The back splash tile was the Florida Tile – Pietra Art Bliss – Glass and Stone Mosaics in the Iceland color. The floor tile was Florida Tile – Mingle Collection – Cool Summer Mix with a Glass and Stone Mosaics border in the Iceland. The floor is also a heated floor using the Schluter brand Ditra Heat system.

In all this was a very nice project and it turned out great.” Dave Humerick

A New Kitchen Worth Waiting For!

When the DiBella family of Columbia was ready to take on remodeling their 30 year old kitchen, they turned to kitchen designer Steve Fair in the Cabinet Discounters Columbia showroom. Steve, along with Cabinet Discounters, had been highly recommended by a neighbor. After the project was complete, the DiBellas could not agree more:



“Everyone who came into our home were professional and courteous so that was very important to us as well. We have been so excited to have the beautiful kitchen and we have received many complements as well. The enlarged eating area has been such a wonderful enhancement to the new kitchen so we are able to entertain our family and friends in this new space.” The DiBellas

The combination, complemented by gorgeous 3″ x 6″ Mediterranea Tile in Polished Marmol Venatino for the backsplash, lends a “cooks kitchen” feel to the space. Cabinets were carefully chosen to meet the needs of the DiBella family with expanded storage and custom cabinets that hide pans, trash bins and kitchen appliances.


“Terri and Mike are a pleasure to work with. They are decisive in making selections and patient when we had to correct a few defects. Their kitchen turned out beautifully and enhanced their home by bringing the kitchen up to the standards exhibited in their other rooms. ” Steve Fair, Columbia showroom


The Beauty of Mixed Wood Tones: Remodel in Olney

An updated kitchen has long been an important factor in overall house value. If you are anticipating a future move, why not consider remodeling today so that you and your family can enjoy your newly remodeled kitchen before moving?

This is exactly what the Petersens of Olney, MD decided to do before they came to the Cabinet Discounters Olney showroom. They worked with kitchen designer Claudia Gillespie to design a warm and inviting family center in their home with architectural details and unique custom features.

The backsplash tile from Jeffrey Court incorporates the multiple tones and offsets a light Viatera quartz countertop by LG.

Drawers and cabinet doors hide trash cans, roll out pot storage and food storage. Corner cabinets can house appliances for easy access without making the counter look cluttered.PetersonKitchen2

“Claudia was very patient. The whole process has been very smooth, the installers showed up when promised and all the subcontractors were friendly and efficient. We even needed someone to come out months later to fix something and that was scheduled easily. We have a large family and like to entertain so we are thrilled with our new kitchen.” Mrs. PetersenPetersonKitchen7

Unique features in the Petersen’s newly remodeled space include open shelves, a plate rack and a kitchen desk area complete with cubbies for storage!

Classic Style Makeover in Chantilly

Cabinet Discounters kitchen designer Ramzi Haddad recently helped a Chantilly family remodel their outdated kitchen. Ramzi and the installation staff of the Chantilly showroom worked with the clients to design and install a beautiful new kitchen that will serve them for years to come with classic lines and warm wood tones.


Brighton Cabinets with Cherry Russet finish and Thompson door style are complemented by White Springs granite counters with ogee edges. The classic styled warm wood is offset by the richly textured and light colored granite countertops.


Additional touches include glass doors on some cabinets and modern styled stainless steel hardware and fixtures. All involved were pleased with the end result!

Cabinet Discounters Can Reinvent Your Room

When Bridget and Steve of Mount Airy, MD came in to the Cabinet Discounters Columbia showroom, they had something other than a kitchen remodel in mind!


Study3They wanted to reinvent their large, empty and unused “living room” into an office and study space. Having worked with Cabinet Discounters for a previous kitchen remodel, they came back because of the great experience they had:

“A friend had recommended Cabinet Discounters to us, approximately 2 years ago when we were remodeling our kitchen. We were so pleased with the service and the Brighton product that it was a no-brainer when we decided to do a study.” Bridget and Steve

Study10Working with experienced designer Jim Polzin, they were able to create the warm, functional and useful space they had dreamed of! Jim helped them to choose the Brighton cabinetry with many customized features to address concerns and desires:

“Jim was amazing to work with. We would describe a function that we would want from the cabinets and he made it happen. For example, we wanted the printer to be hidden but accessible. He met our needs by creating a roll out platform hidden within a base cabinet.” Bridget and Steve

Jim enjoyed the unique project as much as Bridget and Steve did:

“I was extremely satisfied with the turnout of the job. When you make all prefinished materials it’s much more difficult to get things to fit perfectly. No caulk and repaint when everything is premade. I could not have asked for a better outcome. The folks at the factory did a great job in building my vision and interpreting what I wanted.

These are the projects that make my job extra fun. When you can get creative and build something from scratch.” Jim Polzin


Return Customers Are The Greatest Compliment!

After purchasing a new home, the Chesney family turned once again to the professionals at Cabinet Discounters to update and remodel their kitchen and laundry room area to accommodate both their decorating style and functional needs as a family.

Working with Bill Putiri of the Mount Airy Cabinet Discounters showroom, the Chesney’s designed an elegant, classic and thoroughly functional kitchen that will stand up to the test of time.


Using a variety of textures set against whitewashed cabinetry, the space is able to appear light and airy and feel warm and welcoming at the same time. A neutral color palette allows decorative touches to change with the styles and the seasons- without having to remodel again!

ChesneyBar1“With the help of Bill Putiri, we envisioned how the kitchen could better fit our family (more stools at the island, moving the cooktop from the island to the wall, and switching to a gas Wolf range), and the project took on a life of its own, spilling over into the adjoining dry butler’s pantry off the kitchen, wet bar in the dining room, as well as, moving a desk nook location from the kitchen to the garage entry space (previously the laundry room).

Bill is fantastic. He is extremely detail oriented and willing to turn over every stone with you if that’s what you need to do to be confident in your decisions. He was able to pull out the common factors of several “dream kitchen” pictures I showed him, basically combining them to become my own personal dream kitchen.” The Chesneys

Today’s kitchens serve as more than a cooking space, but are a family gathering area, entertaining room and the center of a busy household. The Chesney’s new kitchen meets all of that criteria!


“Working with the Chesney’s was terrific. I worked with Courtney to figure out the design and style that fit their needs and taste best. Courtney has great taste and was very good at conveying what she wanted so that every detail was considered in the design. All of the cabinetry was inset painted maple by Brighton. The tops were all LG Minuet except for the Bar top which was re-used from the existing layout.” Bill Putiri

Minor Structural Changes For A Major Redesign

When the Tuomey family of Derwood, MD decided it was time to update their kitchen, they turned to Cabinet Discounters and met designer Wendy Ames in the Olney showroom. Nervous about changing everything down to the wall color, the Tuomeys were more than pleased with both the service and support that Wendy provided throughout the project -and the end result!

The results are truly stunning…

Before3Before: “Our kitchen was 26 years old and we wanted to update by removing soffits and a peninsula that cut off the flow of traffic between kitchen & breakfast room. We accomplished all of that & got a beautiful kitchen in the process. We love every aspect of our new kitchen!” The Tuomeys

After: Removing the soffits and opting for a bright, white color scheme throughout have opened the entire area, creating space for entertaining, eating and spending time together. The kitchen redesign checked every box and has a classic look that will last for many years to come.

New appliances in stainless steel blend well with the material choices made with the help of Wendy Ames:

  • Homecrest Cabinets with French Vanilla Opaque finish and Brenner door style.
  • Cabinet hardware (handles) are by Amerock, Highland Ridge style in Caramel Bronze.
  • Counter is Pisgah Viaterra quartz with Demi Bullnose edges.
  • Backsplash tile is Italgraniti tile, stonemix series, 6×6” in the color limestone brown.


“The Tuomey’s were an absolute joy to work with. They were a little nervous about the color choices but in the end, are very happy. The 6×6” tile backsplash was unusual, but they really like it! They even went with my suggestion for wall color: Sherwin Williams Wool Skein SW6148.” Wendy Ames


An island of happiness : kitchen remodel in Odenton

Cabinet Discounters kitchen designer Lorraine Aldridge-Ey, located in our Columbia, MD showroom, recently helped Cindy and Paul redesign their kitchen, providing more work space and creating a sense of flow to the family room through the use of a custom kitchen island.


We chose Cabinet Discounters for our kitchen remodel after visiting with Lorraine. She listened intently to what we liked and didn’t like about our old kitchen, as well as to our ideas for a remodel. She presented us with several options that were within our budget, noting the benefits of each price point. We especially did not feel “pressured” to commit before we were ready, and once we started selecting items, Lorraine was exceedingly patient as we sought to pick out just the right things! Cindy and Paul

LorraineAldridge-EyWalsh-LemleKitchen4Cindy and Paul wanted to expand the usability of their counter space and were pleased with the addition of a unique kitchen island that serves as a prep area and comfortable seating spot where family and friends can relax and enjoy music from the adjoining family room. Lorraine worked with our partner, Creative in Counters, on the design of the island using Caesarstone in London Grey. This was also used on the counters throughout the kitchen, lending a contrast to the warm, cherry toned cabinets from Homecrest (Dover Cherry Bison), and complementing the existing wood floor.LorraineAldridge-EyWalsh-LemleKitchen6

I know it sounds like I’m gushing, but honestly, I couldn’t have been happier with the process. We inquired with a few other companies to do our remodel and were met with pushy salesmen that spent more time artificially inflating their prices to then knock them down and try and lure us in than they did actually listening to what we wanted done. Cabinet Discounters was very low pressure, was the most knowledgeable, and in the end, cost the same or below any other quote we received. Cindy
