All of our friends have been visiting us just to see the kitchen. One of our friends even said that this was the most beautiful kitchen she had ever seen.
Potomac, MD (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths, a leading Home Design and Remodeling firm serving the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, has submitted a recently completed kitchen remodel in Potomac, MD for the award for design excellence from NARI, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
“All of our friends have been visiting us just to see the kitchen,” the homeowner, Mr. Rustagi, said. “One of our friends even said that this was the most beautiful kitchen she had ever seen. Another thought that we must have spent more than what people spend on a condo to get this kitchen redone.”
“Full kitchen remodels aren’t cheap,” Gary Case, owner of Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths, said. “But if you know what you’re doing, you can design a beautiful kitchen for less than you might think.”
The secret to this complete kitchen remodel, Mr. Case said, was the unorthodox way he managed to claim extra space for the kitchen. “One of the unique things about this kitchen was that it was only a little bit wider than your arms’ reach. So what we ended up doing was to move into the adjacent garage two feet. And those two feet made all the difference. It opened up the whole house.”
Mr. and Mrs. Rustagi were unsure of the expansion plan until they saw the design in Signature’s computer-modeling program. Additionally, while the kitchen had one existing archway, Mr. Case designed two other archways to open up the walls and bring the whole home together. Another feature that made the kitchen design stand out, Mr. Rustagi said, was the unconventional cork flooring. “The first thing our friends see is probably the backsplash design, but then they look down and they all get very excited over the cork floor.”
But the kitchen design did have a hiccup. “We had initially decided on three feet separating the island from the walls,” Mr. Rustagi said, “but once it was in we realized the space between felt too small.” Mr. Case and the craftsmen were happy to move the island back an extra six inches. “Sometimes you get into it,” Mr. Case said. “You don’t quite know on paper exactly what the results are going to be like, so you need to do some modifications on the fly, and usually it turns out even better.”
The remodeled kitchen, located in Potomac, MD, has been submitted to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for consideration for the design excellence award in kitchen remodeling. “This kitchen turned out so well,” Mr. Case said, “that I think we really have a chance to win that award.”
