Michigan remodel brings in southern sunshine

The sunshine in this kitchen is best enjoyed with an iced tea and lots of friends and family.

I often say, I am lucky to meet my clients because so many of them are just amazing, fun people. This was the case for these homeowners, the LaFaves', who treat entertaining as part of the norm. My job was to create their dream kitchen in a casual elegant manner for their family and friends to enjoy alongside with them.

Seen below is a dual height island, allowing for wheelchair access and function, without compromising on beauty and design in any way.

Darin LaFave installed his kitchen himself and wow, did he do an incredible job. Not an easy task!

Below is the 'Before kitchen'....look familiar?
Time to get your design envy going and remodel your space!

A 'Glass' Act

When considering counter top materials to use for your kitchen or bathroom..have you ever thought of glass?
Yes, glass.
It is available thru many speciality glass companies, and we have designed with it with amazing results.
Glass counter tops can come in the same thickness as granite, either in 1-1/4" or as thick as 3"
It creates a tranquility that stone can not capture, and offers many more benefits..see below!

-Wow factor that makes it the focal point of your kitchen
-High-end appearance that looks very sexy
-Easy to clean
-Most hygienic counter top on the market
-No Cross-contamination
-Can endure high heat without cracking or scorching
-Impossible to stain
-Texture finish underneath that masks fingerprints, common wear and allows scratches to go unnoticed
-Can be lit up from beneath to create ambiance and make it look like ice.

Last night, we at Midwest Cabinet & Counter Inc., attended the Detroit Home Design Awards..what a beautiful and fun night!

Below is a picture of me and my good friend, Erin Keating-Dewald of SKBK Sotheby's International Realty.

I was nominated for 'Rising Star Design Award' and although I didn't win, it was a great honor to be considered!

Below is my design, that won FIRST PLACE for Utility/Storage space.

Major kudos and thanks to our wonderful photographer, Jen of JK Photography who helped us capture our design work.
