NW Washington, DC, Kitchen Remodel - $70,000
Eden and her husband are repeat Merrick customers. When Eden began feeling blocked off from the rest of her family in the kitchen, she came straight to us. She knew she wanted an open layout but wasn’t quite sure how to get that. This is a common problem many homeowners encounter. Design build is their best chance to solve the problem. Merrick’s team of both builders and designers was able to help Eden identify which walls could easily be removed and which would need more costly and time-consuming structural engineering work.
After some careful consideration, Merrick was able to work with Eden to design her dream entertaining kitchen. The space includes a breakfast bar and an eat-in table that flows right into the living room. The design features Merillat classic portrait style cherry cabinets in paprika with black pearl granite countertops. Since Eden did not want to bump out space with an addition we had a small perimeter to work within. Naturally, there had to be some give and take. While it is trendy now to include a slick exhaust hood Eden chose to go with a recessed exhaust in her ceiling to keep the open layout of the kitchen.
In the end, Eden was left with an open space perfect for entertaining.
