An Updated Kitchen Suits Everyday Needs

When the Berlin family from Herndon, VA saw their outdated kitchen needing repairs, they decided it was time to remodel.

I decided to remodel after the kitchen tile floor began cracking.  We needed a new floor and if we got a new floor, I wanted to replace the electric cook top on the island with gas, and if we did that I wanted more counter space next to the cook top and then I would need to put new cabinets in to change the counter, etc. It just escalated from there.” – Pam Berlin
That’s when they turned to the Cabinet Discounters store in Chantilly, VA and kitchen designer Rick Grandy.








I went to two other well known high quality cabinet stores/design centers and did some research before hearing the Cabinet Discounters commercial on the radio.  I decided, what the heck, let’s see what they have.  I was pleasantly surprised to find better quality cabinets at a fraction of the price of what the other companies offered.  I worked with Rick from the Chantilly office to design the kitchen best for my needs.  My main objective was to have more cabinet and counter space.  I got both and a beautiful kitchen!” – Pam Berlin

The island was laid out in order to create a more usable function and flow about the kitchen. Crown molding was used along with cabinet of varied heights to provide visual interest and sensible storage options. Lighted glass-front cabinets also bookend the range and frame the hood and tile work.


I enjoyed time with her, we were able to create a look she really likes. She was very decisive, able to pick between options offered and work on tweaks to make the new layout function to suit her own style of living and working in the kitchen. ” – Rick Grandy

DSC_0625-editI love my new kitchen, it is gorgeous and functional. I have to admit, I was prepared for the worst when I chose to go with a “discount” company.  I was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered a first class, professional organization.  Everyone from the designer to the delivery guys to the installers were wonderful.  The work was done on time and done to perfection.  I am not easy to please and I can’t be happier with my decision.” – Pam Berlin
