Latest Kitchen Design & Photos

By May 28, 2012No Comments
Custom designed, hand-built kitchens are one of our favorite things to do at Meyer Brothers & Sons for a variety of reasons. From a design standpoint, it is fun, yes fun to take our knowledge & expertise in kitchen design – from aesthetics to functionality – and merge that with the clients unique needs & ideas. Often times I hear from clients something along these lines: “I found this picture in a magazine and really like the hood design but nothing else… my neighbor has a cherry kitchen I love but the stain is too dark and the cabinets lack functional storage…I was watching HGTV and I decided I want to go with this kind backsplash tile & granite…” From there the design path begins and unfolds through the creative design process demonstrated in 3-dimensional drawings. Through a series of adjustments, improvements & appliance specification integration the final design comes to life. Once it is finalized, the rest of the crew takes over to convert the theoretical drawings to the built reality; resulting in a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, locally built kitchen that is more of a work of art than another functional room in your house.
