John Marshall Custom Homes is pleased to announce that together with International Kitchen and Bath we were awarded a First Place prize for kitchen renovations at the recent ‘Best of the Lake’ design show held at the Verdict Ridge Country Club. This award marks our 3rd First Place prize, having won in 2007 for Best Whole House Renovation (227 South Thompson Street) and in 2009 for Best Green Home (233 Catawba).
The winning project featured an update of a 1960s ranch home in Davidson. The original kitchen had oak cabinetry and white appliances (and lots of great art from the kids!), and was closed off from the entertaining areas of the home.
Lisa Carlay of International Kitchen and Bath of Davidson designed an open kitchen featuring a large island that could do double duty as an eating area as well as a homework station for the kids. Stainless steel appliances and a vibrant granite countertop add to the contemporary appeal of the new kitchen.
While our prize was awarded for our kitchen work, the overall project also featured a reconfiguration and updating of the dining room and family room, as well as a bathroom remodel.
