NW Washington, DC, Kitchen/Additions & Renovation/Basement - $200,000

Stacey had a tiny kitchen tucked into the back corner of her home that just wasn’t working for her family. She needed to find someone who could help her redesign the space with practicality in mind.  By coming to Merrick she was able to take advantage of the design build process. Merrick delivered a great design and the remodel went smoothly with minimal interruption to her and her family.

At first glance you see a new colorful kitchen that mirrors Stacey’s cheerful personality.  Merrick designed this open and inviting space by pushing out the walls, enlarging the room and creating lots of eat-in space.  With vaulted ceilings and three skylights the room is bright and airy with plenty of light.

Like many families, Stacey’s needed lots of extra storage space.  We started with 42″ tall wall cabinets for an extra shelf in each and added a wide floor to ceiling pantry cabinet.   Under the large kitchen window we created a comfortable seating area using a bench with storage below.  Beside the bench a bookcase was incorporated for Stacey’s cookbooks.

Style elements include the contrasting Silestone quartz counter tops, glass subway tiles and sleek stainless steel appliances.

While we were working on Stacey’s kitchen she asked us to update a few things in her basement rec room and guest bath.  For the rec room, a fun and colorful floor was added to brighten the room.  In the guest bath traditional pieces like the pedestal sink and the mosaic flooring were made transitional with a bright chrome finish on the faucet and mirror.  A fun fresh color on the walls finished the look.
