Outdated Space Becomes Chef’s Dream

Outdated Space Becomes Chef’s Dream


A longtime Instagram follower of Tanya Smith-Shiflett of Unique Kitchens & Baths got in touch after the onset of COVID-19 for a remodel of her Rockville, MD home’s outdated kitchen. Because the client is a chef, Smith-Shiflett made sure to collaborate attentively with her when making appliance and surface selections in order to suit her needs and professional preferences. Additionally, the client needed plenty of prep space and storage for all the tools of her trade.

The client carefully selected a Bertazzoni range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, as well as no-maintenance quartz countertops, so Smith-Shiflett was able to craft her design around those selections. Green cabinetry provides a unique aesthetic for the space, while custom hardware from England and vintage aged brass lights cater to the client’s vintage tastes. Due to pandemic restrictions, Smith-Shiflett, along with partner Carmichael Construction, adhered to strict safety regulations while the client and her children worked and studied on the second floor of the home.
