Open Concept Living Livens Up The Home

Are you living in an older home that has a dark, cramped, uninviting kitchen? While one option is to freshen up the cabinets and countertops, you can also choose to take down some interior walls and open up the entire area.

DSC_5153-editThat’s exactly what this family decided to do with their home.

“When we purchased our home, we knew that we were going to remodel the space. We just didn’t know what the best layout would be to fit our lifestyle. The kitchen was boxy and didn’t have the proper flow. The lighting was poor, and the dining room was tiny and sequestered from the rest of the house. After living from our home for the better part of the year, we were able to design a space that fit our needs. We removed walls and opened up the living space for multi-purpose use. We were fortunate that the architecture of our house easily accommodated these choices.” – customer

Acting on the suggestion of a friend, the customers visited the Cabinet Discounters Gaithersburg showroom, and that’s when they met with designer Tess Moran.DSC_5175-edit

“A good friend recently renovated his kitchen and highly recommended Cabinet Discounters. Tess was fantastic. Not only does she have great design style (she gave fantastic suggestions on tile, lighting, dining room furniture and chairs), she is also patient and kind. Renovations can be stressful (we spent the better part of eight weeks in our basement during the renovations), and Tess was always able to troubleshoot issues quickly. I can’t thank her enough for her help in designing our kitchen. The cabinets were delivered without incident, and the two gentlemen who unloaded our cabinets were very considerate.” – customer

Along with Tess, the customers selected HomeCrest Cabinetry with Rainier Maple full overlay doors and Buckboard finish and Twin Arch quartz Roanoke counter tops. The installation was provided by Eduardo Lucas of RL Contractors. The new kitchen allows for an expanded countertop area, along with more functional and usable storage with the new cabinetry. Instead of the old “boxed-in” look, the kitchen now provides an open concept throughout the first floor of the home.DSC_5155-edit

“We are very happy with the layout, and now it’s easy to prepare meals while still being able to interact with everyone in the other rooms. It’s especially been great to have family and friends over during the holidays.” – customer
