Opening Up the Kitchen Adds Light & Space

The concept of the “open” kitchen or great room can often be achieved by removing a wall that typically divides the kitchen from the dining or family room.


Marshall4Marshall5Wendy Ames, a Cabinet Discounters designer in the Olney showroom recently helped a Silver Spring client create a bright, airy and spacious new kitchen by removing just one wall. The removal of the wall allowed existing windows and doors to be utilized in brightening the kitchen, highlighting the new white cabinets and bringing the dining room corner cabinets into view from the whole kitchen.

It really doesn’t look like the same house! The dining room wall was blocking all of that natural light. [The client] likes it so much that she’s decided not to put her dining room curtains back up…Wendy Ames, designer.

Materials Used:

  • Homecrest cabinets, Brenner doorstyle, French Vanilla opaque finish
  • Cambria countertop in Bradford color, demibullnose edge
  • Door and cabinet hardware: Amerock oil-rubbed bronze
  • Backsplash tile: Roca tile, Portonova glazed ceramic
  • Flooring: Duraceramic Rapolano, color bisque 15 x 15”, with no grout

Cabinet Discounters was recommended to me by several people. I felt as though my kitchen needed to be upgraded in case I need to sell it. Every one of your workmen was very nice to work with.

They were considerate of my needs. Wendy was great and very helpful. I am very happy with the outcome. Mrs. Marshall, client.
