Columbia MD – Open Kitchen Concept

Columbia MD couple John & Alison, were considering a kitchen remodeling project for almost two years.  Their goal? To gain unused space from the dining room. In other words, an open kitchen concept.  Also, the kitchen had floor and carpet damage from a leak in the dishwasher. To be sure, they had concerns about a long renovation project, but knew an open kitchen concept would:

  • increase the natural sunlight,
  • increase kitchen storage space,
  • allows for eat-in dining and a more casual lifestyle, and
  • increase the value of the home.

THE RIGHT Remodeling Contractor for the open kitchen concept

Once committed, the Columbia MD homeowners considered four companies for their kitchen remodeling project.  During their initial meeting, owner Moses Merrell laid the groundwork for a successful partnership.  Moses understands that a family’s unique needs is the key to a successful kitchen remodel.

For that reason, Moses had his tape measure out on the first visit.  Then, he assessed how the space was currently used and what changes they wanted to see happen.  Additionally, he provided specifics with honest feedback about their ideas.  This, particularly, gave the couple confidence in choosing Merrell Building to complete the home improvement project.

John said he chose Merrell because, “I could trust you and you weren’t afraid to tell me something I didn’t want to hear.”

Kitchen Remodeling Options

Merrell Building is a licensed GC with over 20 years of experience.  Our old-fashioned approach to doing business, combined with the latest computerized design tools delivers improved results every time.  For this Columbia MD kitchen remodel, we provided three design options. Some potential complications, because of that, were brought to light.  For example, the HVAC returns were not compatible with the new design.  The duct system therefore, had to be reconfigured. Ultimately, learning this before any work began, helped make sure this kitchen renovation process ran smoothly.  Providing the right functionality for the kitchen is key, so additionally, the design team worked with the couple for the best placement of the island.  During the remodel, Merrell helped the family by creating a temporary cooking station.  Therefore, helping to keep inconveniences to a minimum.

As a result, removing the wall between the formal dining room and the kitchen created the space John & Alison were looking for.  In addition, the project manager made sure that the dishwasher leak got fixed.  The renovation team, also, enlarged an exterior window adding more natural light.  Alison is extremely delighted with her new room. Her only complaint is now with so much cabinetry, she cannot find anything.
