“What mainly set this kitchen apart wasn’t the room itself but the process we went through to help the client determine the best investment for the long term,” said Wayne Jackson, project manager at Glickman Design. “After increasing their budget, they gutted the kitchen and replaced everything, which was the best long-term solution. Now they really love their kitchen.”
Though the clients’ originally intended to save money by keeping the original cabinetry and updating it with a simple paint job, they ditched the idea after realizing it would limit the dimensions of new appliances and ultimately need to be replaced because of its age and quality.
They made sure to stay away from anything overtly trendy, opting instead for a design with more longevity.
The new saddle brown–stained maple cabinets add warmth to the space and complement the surrounding rooms. “I chose a well-built plywood cabinet, making sure that it wasn’t too personalized,” said Jackson.
