An Elegant Kitchen Remodel

Michael Nash Design Build Creates Another Stunner

A couple in Fairfax Station had lived with a drab, small kitchen for years. They approached Michael Nash Design build to create a dream room with lasting appeal. The original design was dark and cramped, wasn't set up for functional use and was cut off from other rooms. Dark brown cabinets, black countertops and a small island added to the gloomy, dated feel. 

"The kitchen is really the heart of any house," says Sonny Nazemian, master designer/remodeler at Michael Nash Design build. "And the expectation with a modern kitchen is that it fits seamlessly into daily life since so much time is spent there. It has to be connected, functional and beautiful...a place where people want to spend their time."

In order to achieve the new look, the design team needed to take down walls, reconfigure the stairway, open up more windows to add light and move appliances for functionality. The island was expanded for seating and now houses a microwave and extra storage. A new large professional range with two ovens and a large matching stainless steel hood sit across from the island and serve as an eye-catching centerpiece. A beautiful new stainless farmhouse sink is now flanked by dishwashers on either side. The adjacent wall houses a commercial refrigerator and additional cabinetry and the opposite wall features a bar area complete with wine cooler. A dining area fits seamlessly in the large open space.

"One of the design elements we love about this kitchen is the contrasting cabinet colors," says Sonny. "The majority of the custom cabinetry is white to bring a light feel to the room, but the island and the bar cabinets carry a natural wood color. Something as simple as the contrasting dark wood steps and white of the stairwell, carries this color scheme and gives the room another unexpected pop. The white quartz countertops add elegance to the room. Recessed lights combined with beautiful pendant lights have completely transformed the brightness."

Another unique feature is a wall of custom cabinetry with a large interior-lit middle cutout. The light porcelain floor tiles are another modern touch to bring this kitchen into the 21st Century and will be enjoyed for many years to come.
