Wilsonart and A New Kitchen For A Cottage By The Sea
It also means we’re starting to hear from our past clients and new clients with ocean homes that need renovating or updating, as now is the time they know they need to begin planning for their renovations and additions, in order for everything to be ready for spring weddings, Easter and their summer vacation times with their families.
One of those we’ve heard from is our wonderful past client with the home in the above photo, in the Little Neck area of Ipswich, which appeared on the March 2015 cover of Northshore Magazine.
who is now ready to begin renovating their kitchen.
As you can see from what Sally shared here:
this client was not ready to completely renovate their kitchen when we completed the first phase of our interior design work for them and so we improvised a lovely and affordable solution for them, until they were ready, with some clean white open shelving, since the kitchen is seen through the dining area.
Now, the planning for a completely new kitchen has begun in earnest, as you can see by my sketch below, and we couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to create a brand new family- friendly small coastal cottage kitchen for this wonderful client.
This project was top of mind for me as I visited my #BlogTourKBIS sponsor, Wilsonart’s booth at #KBIS2017, whose new solid surface, quartz and laminate surfacing materials are beautiful, affordable solutions for family- friendly *second home* small coastal kitchens like this one, where reasonable budgets are one of the primary concerns.
Sally and I were both impressed with their new offerings, and their commitment to sustainability – often important to our clients who live near the ocean.
This Wilsonart laminate finish, in their new *Artfully Repurposed Woods* collection, shown below, is one we think some of you will like for your own homes, although it’s not quite right for the client we’re working with above.
Sally and I are still thinking about whether we will suggest one of Wilsonart’s specialty laminates to our current client ( like the very affordable option below that allows you to re-cover your pre-existing cabinets or countertops ) or a Wilsonart solid surface material, which, while a bit more expensive, has the advantages of being seamless upon installation, and repairable.
This beautiful image from Wilsonart’s site shows a kitchen utilizing both their laminates and their quartz countertop material. As Sally and I said to each other, laminate is not what it used to be and we came away from their space at #KBIS2017 with a renewed appreciation for the possibilities Wilsonart offers to our clients. Sally also enjoyed being given a demonstration of their new *Smart Table* visualization tool, introduced at #KBIS2017, which you can see a video of, by clicking on the image below.
Thank you, Wilsonart, for inspiring us with fresh ideas and new products and if you, our readers, would like to get even more inspired by rooms designed using Wilsonart’s products, we invite you to view their Pinterest board by clicking on this link – > www.pinterest.com/wilsonart.
This is where we found the image below, featured in Domino Magazine, of a coastal cottage kitchen renovation by Anna Burke, that used Wilsonart’s Artfully Repurposed collection, mentioned above.
And, one more thank you to Ocean Home Magazine for naming Wilson Kelsey Design as one of their 2017 Top 50 Coastal Interior Designers in the USA. It is thanks to our wonderful past clients, like the one we’re working with now on this kitchen renovation, that we were able to earn this honor.
