2011 NKBA Design Award: Budget-Friendly- Best ofLinn's Prestige Kitchens & BathsDestin, FLDesigner: Allison McCowan
Design Notes: A small kitchen gets a big makeover for a budget under $40,000. Selecting a 30-inch Viking range that had slight damage gave these aspiring chefs a professional-grade appliance at an affordable price. The homeowners installed the tile and sewed the banquette cushion themselves for additional cost savings. Cutting back in these areas allowed them to spend on cabinet organizers, the slate floors, LG stainless steel appliances and Corian countertops.
Products and Materials: Schrock maple cabinetry in Dover finish, Corian countertops in Medea, Corian sink in Glacier White, Kohler faucets, Viking range and ventilation, LG dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator
