KITCHEN DESIGN: THINKING ABOUT YOUR GUESTS

Kitchen Design Feature Image

Bekins supplied and installed appliances in a home that really thought about its guests. If you want to see a kitchen design that focuses on entertaining, visit 8057 Ella Terrace Court in Rockford during the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes. Heartland Builders recently built the traditional style home.

KITCHEN DESIGN: PERFORMANCE & PLACEMENT

One of the home owners really loves to cook, so it makes sense to have Sub-Zero Wolf appliances in the home.

The homeowner told Heartland Builders that he looks forward to flipping pancakes on the griddle of his new Wolf range.

A Marvel undercounter refrigerator will store beverages for guests. However, this is where the kitchen design really thinks about entertaining. They placed the beverage center in a space that would not interrupt anyone cooking for the guests.

Bekins also supplied a Wolf ventilation liner and blower for the hood above the range, but click here to see how Heartland Builders made it unique.

One remodeled home opens to the public on October 20 and 21 from 1-8pm. You can find electronics from Classic Stereo in that home.

Built-In Appliances Parade of Homes

Now is the perfect time to see what is meant to NOT be seen. Bekins furnished panel-ready and built-in appliances for 6575 Burger SE in Grand Rapids. Visit the home during the 2017 Parade of Homes sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids.

See firsthand how BDR Executive Custom Homes Inc. displays the view of the Thornapple River from virtually every room of the modern prairie home.

When you are in the kitchen, notice how the built-in feature of the appliances saves space. The panels allow most of the appliances to blend in with the rest of the cabinetry. Bekins communicates with the designers and builders to ensure the panels on the appliances match the rest of the kitchen.
