Have you been hoping for a large kitchen in which to entertain? Do you frequently host events with family and friends, but then realize that your space is just too small? You are not alone! A local family found themselves in this exact same situation, and they knew it was time do something about it.
“We had always wanted to knock down a wall between our family room and kitchen, and provide a bigger space to entertain and just hang out. When the children graduated from college we finally got our chance.” – customer
Using the recommendation of their general contractor, the customers visited our Gaithersburg showroom for their project. Once they were inside, they were advised to work with designer Mike Bliss.
“Our contractor had worked with Cabinet Discounters, and specifically Mike Bliss on a number of projects over the years and recommended them.” – customer
The customers felt they had a great experience working with Mike. He suggested ideas to them, while also allowing them to provide their own input.
“Everything was very smooth. Mike had some great ideas about kitchen designs, what worked, and what to watch out for. He was open to our ideas, and provided a much needed sounding board for us. He was great about researching ideas as well. We brought him many pictures and ideas, and he was extremely open to everything we suggested.” – customer
Working along with Mike, the customers selected Brighton Cabinetry with Wabash doors for their kitchen. The perimeter cabinets are Maple Landmark color, and the island cabinetry is Maple Zinc. The Maple Zinc finish is also used on a set of cabinet doors on the perimeter, as well as the display cabinet for glasses and the mini beverage refrigerator.
“Our kitchen is beautiful – I love waking up every morning and starting my day with a great cup of coffee, listening to the news and reading the paper in my new space!” – customer
This new, expanded space has provided numerous opportunities for the family to host gatherings and entertain. Their large new space is being used exactly how they had envisioned.
“The large island is perfect for our family and the way we live. We love to have breakfast and read the paper at the island sitting on stools. The island is wide enough that I use the far end near the stove as my cooking prep space, leaving the rest of the island clear for entertaining or open for someone still sitting on the island reading or using their laptop. Many times my sons and friends have gathered around the island, eating pizza, drinking wine, and playing board games. We have music speakers in the kitchen/family room – and we crank up the tunes and have a great time! We have had many last minute neighborhood gatherings, and our new space if perfect. The beverage cabinet is all open and self-serve, and the island has so much storage that every serving plate for entertaining is within easy reach. I have also had many girls book club gatherings, celebrating birthdays and holidays. My new kitchen takes the stress out of entertaining – now it’s just all joy!” – customer
