Have you been making little changes to your kitchen over the years in hopes that they will make it usable for a longer period of time? Maybe you’ve painted your cabinets, added new tile, or even added new countertops. From an aesthetic standpoint, these things can make the kitchen look better. But these things won’t actually improve the longevity of your kitchen, and at some point you’ll realize you need to make a more permanent change. A local family found themselves in a similar position, and knew they needed to do something about it.
“We decided several years ago to replace the countertop in our kitchen with granite. We kept the cabinets because they seemed to still be in decent shape. In hindsight, we should have just done a complete remodel because our cabinets were starting to really show their age (house built in 1991).”
Thanks to a chance meeting on vacation with one of the owners of our company, the family knew they wanted to work with Cabinet Discounters on their remodeling project.
“My husband and I met Darrin [Mikk] and his wife at a restaurant in Ocean City. Darrin shared with us that he worked for the family business, Cabinet Discounters. I mentioned to him that we had replaced our countertop with granite several years back and asked his advice on a complete remodel. My husband and I were very impressed with his honesty and sincerity and how proud he was of his business.”
So acting on their motivation from their meeting at the beach, the family visited our Mt. Airy showroom, which was closest to their home. Once inside our store, they met with designer Dan Ciucci. Dan was able to come up with a plan for their space and go over everything in detail to assure all aspects of the project were covered.
“Everyone involved in our project was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We first met with Dan and he helped us design our new kitchen layout offering his expertise as needed. Once the kitchen was designed, he thoroughly explained the entire process from start to finish.”
In addition to Dan, the family was very pleased with their experience with working with everyone else who contributed to their kitchen remodel.
“The installer, Craig did a fantastic job. He was extremely professional, very obvious to us that he was experienced and left the area 100% clean. The granite installers, electrician and plumber all worked as a team. Very impressed with all!”
Working along with Dan, the family selected Brighton Cabinetry with Bryant door style and Maple Misty color. The perimeter countertops are Absolute Black granite, and the island top is Brown Fantasy granite. The new space now provides the family with plenty of new storage and gathering space.
“So much more cabinet space, I’m still adjusting to where I stored things. The larger island was probably the best decision we made. So much more area for food prep, eating or just hanging out with family and friends.”
In the end, they couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out with their new kitchen.
“We are extremely satisfied. Our kitchen looks like a finished project you would see on HGTV. My husband and I are so happy we met Darrin and his wife. We absolutely love our new kitchen, are extremely proud to ‘show it off’. I would highly recommend Cabinet Discounters to anyone who wants their project done professionally, on time and with great customer service.”
