Style With Tile: Unique Details Make A Mount Airy Kitchen Stand Out

There are many aspects to a kitchen remodel from choosing the style and color of cabinets to balancing function and aesthetics. There are many ways to incorporate style and architectural details from custom cabinetry to tile to unique fixtures.

The Gruentzel family from Mount Airy, MD turned to Cabinet Discounters in Mount Airy to remodel their outdated kitchen and create a new island. Looking to add an element of style, tile was used to create a focal point behind the stove and to cover the island wall. The unique application was a first for kitchen designer Terri Reiter: “…applying tile on the island wall was a first for me and it looks great.


Homecrest Oak cabinets and Kashmire White granite countertops are the backdrop for the earth toned tile that is used throughout the new kitchen.


Ample storage and space to cook and entertain is provided by the island and added counter areas making the new kitchen a focal point of the home.
