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.
What can this baby do?
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, removing interior walls to enlarge the formal breakfast zone, introducing a 10’ x 4’ food prep island and dining counter which seats four, installing an 8’ x 4’ triple casement style window on the south-facing rear elevation and generating the wall surface needed for floor-toceiling 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>
