A kitchen enlargement and reconfiguration in a 4,000 square foot home in McLean has won a “Contractor of the Year” (COTY) award for Michael Nash Design Build and Homes.
The makeover to the residence of Hashim and Neda Hamandi was named metro Washington’s best kitchen within a prescribed budget range by the National Association of Remodeling Contractors (NARI) metro DC chapter.
Among key space enhancements, the remodeler expanded the kitchen’s footprint over 500 square feet by relocating a laundry room, removed interior walls to enlarge the formal breakfast zone, introduced a 10’ x 4’ food prep island and dining counter which seats four, installed an 8’ x 4’ triple casement style window on the south facing rear elevation and generated the wall surface needed for floor-to-ceiling glass-facing cabinetry.
The 1,300 square foot kitchen now accommodates a 48” professional caliber cooktop range, a 4’ x 8’ refrigerator freezer, a butler’s pantry complete with wine refrigerator, a stainless steel farm sink and many other amenities. The interior design is articulated in a brightly warm “transitional-style” that balances traditional detailing with far-ranging views and a bold indoor-outdoor visual continuum. < Read More >
