Beyond The Color in BSL

Boiling Spring Lakes’ area homeowner and local owner of Manning’s Pest Control sought out Brunswick Cabinets and Countertops for our kitchen design expertise.

Reface or Buy New Cabinets?

Originally planning to reface their kitchen cabinets after laminate began peeling off the face of the cabinets, the Boiling Spring Lakes homeowners decided to request a free kitchen design from us first to see if incremental value could be created in their kitchen with new cabinets instead.

With the understanding that Brunswick Cabinets and Countertops does not provide refacing services, we were happy to provide the homeowners a free kitchen design to help them make an informed decision on whether the investment in new cabinets or refacing was the best route for their kitchen.

Let Good Kitchen Design Maximize Its Function

To maximize the kitchen’s function, Designer Amy Richardson placed her design’s focus on increasing storage and convenience. One of the first areas she recommended for storage was to eliminate a sink base cabinet box. In its place, she recommended to design for a sink front which would allow access to the entire corner instead of limiting storage to the inside of a small box. Amy’s favorite storage solution, the pull out trash bin, was also included by the dishwasher to increase convenience. An under-cabinet system to improve the organization of large pots and pans was recommended as well as a lazy susan for the existing blind corner.

Individually, each of the proposed solutions offered the homeowner added storage but the combination of the recommendations in Amy’s kitchen design convinced the homeowners how the new design would improve the kitchen’s flow, increase its efficiency and most importantly everyone’s enjoyment in the space.

New Kitchen Cabinet and Countertop Selections

Happy with the recommendations, a decision was made to proceed with buying new cabinets! And, with a clear vision for the look and feel they were seeking, the homeowners’ cabinet and countertop selections were quickly made.

Cabinet Brand Selection: Waypoint

Cabinet Wood Species: Maple 

Cabinet Finish/Custom Paint Color: Painted Hazelnut Glaze

Countertops: Granite Giallo Ornamental

An Artistic Statement and Project First

The homeowners made the commitment to proceed permanent with an artistic statement on the cabinets. Check out the Before pictures to see if you can spot the smiley face drawing they drew on their old cabinets! This was a fun and hilarious first for us so I guess if we needed an enthusiastic sign our homeowners were ready to kick off the project, we certainly got it!

This renovated kitchen’s pairings provided the homeowners with a warmth and richness to their space. Their sandy pairing of Waypoint’s maple cabinets in Painted Hazelnut Glaze along with Giallo Ornamental granite countertops was also a departure from the popular white and gray so commonly chosen by clients in the area so we were thrilled to be a part of this one.
