2018 Regional CotY Award Winner, Residential Kitchen Under $30,000
The homeowners loved the country feel of their home and its outdoor space, but desired a larger, more open gathering area to accommodate their children and grandchildren during the holidays. They also wanted a more easily accessible food prep and service station. To update the space, the kitchen layout and appliances were reconfigured, a more functional island was installed, the wall between the living room and kitchen was opened, and the kitchen ceiling was raised to match the height of the ceiling in the dining room. The kitchen now features a cathedral ceiling, lightly stained custom maple cabinets, granite-style laminate countertops, new lighting and appliances, and wide plank flooring in a darker finish.
