There’s nothing I love more than a good kitchen remodel. Whether it’s my own, a friend’s or one I’ve seen in a magazine, a good kitchen remodel is as exciting to me as that first warm day of spring when all that’s dingy and dull turns new again.
When I redid my kitchen in 2011, my excitement was through the roof. Truthfully, I still get giddy about my kitchen today. This is thanks in great part to Heartwood Kitchens and owner Nancy Hanson, who enlightened me to a world of possibilities.
Since my own remodel, I’ve recommended Nancy and Heartwoods Kitchens to more people than I can count. Just a few weeks ago, I got a call from a friend with kitchen questions and I was more than happy to sing Nancy’s praises once again.
What I love about Heartwood Kitchens is that they not only carry a great line of custom and semi-custom cabinetry, but Nancy knows exactly how to help you choose the style, finish and options that suit your taste and budget. More importantly, Nancy knew how to help me see past the confines of my typical, colonial home, kitchen. She opened my world and my home to a floorplan that encourages free flowing movement, ease of entertainment and a general sense of spaciousness that I never thought my kitchen could have.
My kitchen is adjacent to my dining room on one side and my sunroom on the other. I wanted each of those spaces to remain intact and serve their original purpose, without changing the footprint of my home. I simply wanted to update the small kitchen I already had. Nancy listened and respected my every wish while offering suggestions to gain space without having to add on. By breaking down walls, that I never considered could come down, she transformed my three spaces into one unified space that I love.
The end result is a wide open and inviting space that continues to make me happy with every meal I cook, party I host and cup of coffee I sip. Even smaller details, like my in-island microwave, make me smile.
I was so pleased with the transformation, I wrote a magazine article about the experience aptly titled, Open Wide.
