When the weather cools off, homeowners head indoors. Soon, they start thinking about remodeling the rooms they use the most, including their kitchens and baths. In honor of National Kitchen and Bath Month, Beth Kemmer, a Certified Kitchen Designer at Wood Specialists in Fargo, inspired us with elegant kitchen and bath designs.

 

National Kitchen & Bath Month

This October is the 35th anniversary of National Kitchen & Bath Month, which is recognized by the National Kitchen & Bath Association. The NKBA is a not-for-profit trade association that represents the kitchen and bath industry. Whether you plan to cook up a remodel or build from scratch, this month is all about promoting the importance of elegant, yet efficient kitchen and bath designs.

 

The Project

This elegant kitchen belongs to Kent and Melissa Rademacher of Oxbow. The Rademachers were past clients of Wood Specialists. “They were a young family when they first built, but now they are close to being empty nesters, so their home needs changed,” Kemmer said. The Rademachers worked with Hanson Bros. Construction on their previous home, so when it came time to build again, they chose the same builder, while interior designer Monica Hart selected some of the finishes. After seeing the original floor plan, Kemmer made alterations to the kitchen to fit the needs of the Rademacher family.

The open-concept kitchen features painted cabinets for Melissa Rademacher and stained, maple cabinets for Kent Rademacher. The paint color is alabaster, while the stain is espresso. There are also two types of quartz countertops. While the perimeter is Torquay by Cambria, the island features Sea Grove by Cambria.

Function is essential in kitchen design. In addition to cabinet organization, the Rademachers’ kitchen has a walk-in pantry with lower cabinets and counter space for all of their small appliances.
