Kensington Maryland Kitchen Design Remodel
Kitchen design in a small space is always a challenge. In this case the solution was pretty straight forward. Remove the wall between kitchen and dining room and turn a full bath into a half bath. The owner and most of us seem to use our dining room tables for formal events only once or twice a year. Generally the table gets used for other purposes, crafts, homework, storage etc.. The wall was removed; a casual eating area was incorporated by extending the counter top. This still left room for a small breakfast nook table.
The bathroom on the first floor was a third bath which potentially would give the kitchen design and additional 32″ of space. Pulling the kitchen back did necessitate relocating the window to recenter it over the corner sink and therefore redoing the siding.
The other kitchen remodeling challenge was not a surprise… in Kensington MD. The houses are older than most suburban houses. There are multiple generations of mechanical electrical and plumbing which had to be contended with.

Kitchen Remodeling Kensington MD homeowner George Borlase had this to say…
about his project with Signature Kitchens Additions & Baths. “Overall it was an extremely positive experience. We were doing a major remodel of a vintage 1950s kitchen, including removing interior walls and renovating a full bath into a powder room to make more space for the kitchen. Our designer Ellyn was great to work with – she asked all the right questions, she understood our tastes and had great ideas on not just the kitchen layout but the lighting, cabinets, and flooring. The owner Gary Case was very engaged, and was ready to resolve any and all problems that came up, as they tend to do when you rip out a 60 year old kitchen down to the studs and joists. Despite being a new project manager, Sara made sure everything moved along smoothly, and we didn’t have days where we didn’t know what was going on or if anyone was coming or what the status was. The attention to detail and the quality of the work is excellent, and after two years everything looks as good as the day Elmer, our lead carpenter, put the finishing touches on the back splash.
