Hiring a Holiday Dealer/Designer Can Make The Difference
February 05, 2014

Deciding to redesign a space in your home might just be the easy part.  Figuring out how to create the space you dream of – within the parameters of your pocket book – might just be the trying part.  Is it possible?  It is possible, says Virginia based Holiday dealer.  Designers at Nicely Done Kitchens & Baths of Springfield, Virginia find the most popular conversation with a homeowner to begin with their main objective:  

“My home needs a better flow… I want my home to be more welcoming, an inviting social space – can you do that?”  – Homeowner

Getting started can be tough that is why many find hiring a Holiday Dealership and their design team can make the process much easier.  Some spaces need a simple elimination of the peninsula or a repositioned island, but it isn't always that straightforward.   What about the color (paint or stain, dark or light) – the island (0, 1, 2, 3…) – the design (layout changes, appeal to other rooms)?

This traditional corner kitchen presented an opportunity to design a unique island to fit the space – create a space that flows, a space that is workable. 

The original design featured a small rectangle in the middle of the kitchen floor creating a disjointed work triangle. – Nicely Done Kitchen & Baths Designer

Designers opened up the island into an unconventional unique design that directly addressed the space – creating an improved flow and workspace.  But – how did they get here?

What about color?  Two-toned, paint or stain, light or dark – designs by Nicely Done are specific to the client.

“Materials selected for each kitchen typically match our clients personalities – warm, elegant, detailed, etc.” – Nicely Done Kitchens & Baths Designer

A little contrast and drama – dark cabinets with light countertops.  An accent island to add some “pop” or a bright white space accented by warm subtle tones.

It doesn’t stop with color – What about the door style, hardware, and lighting?  Designing your new space can be overwhelming – so many details to be addressed and kept track of.  Hiring a professional is paving the way to creating a cohesive, united look, that truly responds to your wants and needs – planning your dream space.  

Bringing everything together is second to making sure the functionality of the kitchen is superior to the existing – It’s not just about creating a beautiful all-around aesthetic space it’s about seeing the potential of the space and knowing how to capture that potential and transform it into a beautiful end product.  – Nicely Done Kitchens & Baths Designer

Hiring a Designer who has extensive knowledge of products, accessories, and materials to capture that potential – to create that exceptional one of a kind space you want – is what Nicely Done’s clientele has done.  Images speak a thousand words – Nicely Done Kitchens & Baths has not only meets their customers’ expectations, but exceeds them over and over again.
