RE-CONFIGURED KITCHEN WINS CoTY AWARD | by JOHN BYRD
A space plan reconfiguration and makeover in an Ashburn residence has won a National “Contractor of the Year” (COTY) award for Michael Nash Design Build and Homes. The innovative design solution was judged the nation’s top kitchen remodel within a prescribed budget range by the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI).
Among other space enhancement strategies, the remodeler converted a seldom-used breakfast room into a gourmet kitchen, removed a bearing wall between the new kitchen and adjacent two-level family room, introduced a food prep island and dining counter which seats six and formed a new dining room adjacent to a butler’s pantry that features custom-designed cabinetry.
The new living space now accommodates a professional-caliber cooktop range, a double door refrigerator/freezer, a butler’s pantry equipped with wine refrigerator, a farm sink and many other amenities.
