KITCHEN DESIGN: THINKING ABOUT YOUR GUESTS

Kitchen Design Feature Image

Bekins supplied and installed appliances in a home that really thought about its guests. The traditional style home built by Heartland Builders for the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes featured a kitchen design that focuses on entertaining.

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.

Built-In Appliances Parade of Homes

Parade of Homes customers in 2017 got to see what is meant to NOT be seen. Bekins furnished panel-ready and built-in appliances for the modern prairie home built by BDR Executive Custom Homes Inc..

The home displays the view of the Thornapple River from virtually every room, while the built-in appliances saves space in the kitchen. 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.
