Whether it’s to catch the morning news or follow along with a cooking show, many homeowners are channeling a new amenity into their kitchen remodel – the television.
“Televisions have become such a popular request that we treat it as an additional appliance,” said Normandy Designer Leslie Molloy, CKD. “The good thing is that there are many types of shelving, cabinetry, and mounts that let us flawlessly build it into our design.”
“Pocket doors can hide the television when not in use, Or, a hutch or niche make a great place to tuck in the TV too,” added Leslie.
Set up an appointment with Leslie to create a kitchen that is filled with useful storage space to house your appliances.

While remodeling isn’t an Olympic sport, Normandy Designers still require some of the same qualities as the athletes –such as dedication, determination, and expertise. Additionally, our team competes against other designers from across the country, with their work reviewed and evaluated by a panel of judges. Therefore, in honor of the 2016 Olympics, we have decided to share a recap of three of our favorite projects that have earned gold, silver, or bronze awards from Professional Remodeler Magazine.
Master Bathroom Remodel, Gold Design Award – This master bathroom is a Parisian-inspired masterpiece. Overall, the luxurious and spa-like space includes soothing tones, Carrera marble, and a free-standing bathtub comprised of volcanic limestone. Elegant sconces and a glamorous chandelier also provide ambient lighting.
Kitchen Remodel, Silver Design Award – This transitional kitchen has a mix of classic and modern design elements. A few details include traditional moldings and corbels as well as a contemporary light fixture and chunky island countertop. The bright white and soothing grays are simple, yet also provide a striking contrast. The large island and nearby beverage fridge also make this kitchen ideal for entertaining.
Finished Basement Remodel, Bronze Design Award – During this renovation, an unfinished basement was transformed into a hot spot for entertaining family and friends. Overall, the space has a high-end, eclectic vibe with a wet bar, lounge, and gaming area.
