The Patanella’s kitchen was outdated and dark, and it didn’t match the rest of their beautifully designed Annapolis home. While the space had existing skylights, the layout did not allow the natural light to spread throughout the kitchen. Additionally, the closed-off kitchen did not have a view of the recently landscaped outdoor space. When she decided to remodel, Aimee Patanella knew she wanted something modern and bright, but she didn’t know where to start.
When it came time to choose a remodeling company for the job, Aimee’s sister-in-law recommended Brothers. She recently remodeled her kitchen with Brothers and was so happy with the final product that she wanted to share the great work with friends and family. After meeting with a Brothers kitchen consultant, Aimee was excited to make selections in the showroom and start creating her dream kitchen.
New Floor Plan Brothers’ designers created an entirely new floor plan, relocating the appliances along the wall with a functional island and opening up space for a large dining area.
Prioritize Appliance Installation Aimee wanted her kitchen to be functional in time for Christmas. So, Brothers’ project manager prioritized the appliance installation to ensure that she could cook Christmas dinner in her new kitchen.
Accent Island To gain more counter space while keeping the floorplan light, the homeowner chose a unique slab island addition. She can also work in this multifunctional space while looking out the windows at the back yard.
Custom Cabinetry In addition to the concealed adjustable hinge cabinets, the new floorplan also required custom fit shelving on either side of the layout.
Bifold Patio Doors The star of the new kitchen, these patio doors let in light, provide a beautiful view of the back yard, and open in an accordion style to enable easy deck access.
Task Lighting For better light in everyday situations, Brothers installed LED strip lighting with a dimmer applied under the wall cabinetry and base cabinetry.
Match Flooring Brothers matched the new hardwood to the existing hardwood finding the right wood, stain, and finish for an even transition. Brothers’ master tradespeople laid wide board from left to right to allow new flooring to be laid without affecting the existing hardwood.
Convenient Innovations Aimee wanted her kitchen to be convenient above all else, so Brothers’ designers included smart innovations such as outlets in the countertop and under cabinets.
