Brunswick Cabinets and Countertops' Designer Cindy Bennett-McCune

Designer Cindy Bennett-McCune

Get to know more about Designer Cindy Bennett-McCune. The influence her upbringing had on her design career and, her love for all shades of blue.


The person

Welcoming, witty and reliable, Cindy is a sought-after design partner but for most of her clients at the end of a project she is a new friend. She’s helpful and just a like a good friend will go above and beyond for you. Design partner + new BFF, what could be better? 

The professional

Raised by a decorator that specialized in draperies and wallpaper, Cindy experienced the excitement of transforming spaces early in life. Her natural instincts for design and a professional career spanning 30 years provides an effortless and stress-free experience for her clients . She’ll simplify the project process for you. She’ll bring creative solutions to the table for challenges and above all else give you comfort through communication that your project is in good hands.  

The Brunswick County resident

With the warmth of the people and weather, planting roots in Brunswick County was easy for Cindy. And, when she’s not designing spaces, Cindy can be found shopping at Callahan’s in Calabash, grabbing a quick bite at Burg-Dog Grill or an evening dinner at Oyster Rock. She (like most of us!) also has to get her sweet tooth fix and there’s no other choice than Sugar Confections Bakery in Shallotte.

Describe a Favorite Project

Kitchen Design Spotlight: The Cook Project

The Cook Project

Buying a second home in Brunswick County often means buying for location and staying open to the need for renovation in order to create a space that supports your lifestyle.

The Cook Project forced Cindy to explore new options to overcome renovation challenges in order to support the Cook’s lifestyle. The project required designer creativity and this is exactly what Cindy loves to do.

Cindy’s Takeaway on the Project

The Cook project was a favorite for the color combo and innovative ideas needed to make everything work!

Designer Pairing Pick: October 2020

She has paired Fieldstone’s Hickory Wayburg Door Style shown in Slate with Ebony Glaze (also shown back in June) and opted to pair with a quartz countertop from Caesarstone in Statuario Maximus 5031.

This contemporary pairing feels warm and inviting while reflecting a modern spin on today’s rustic beach cottage style.
