A NARI Atlanta remodeling company is in the national spotlight this month. Bires Remodeling led by Dean Bires,CR, a NARI Atlanta member since 2004, is honored to have one of its projects on the cover of Beautiful Kitchens & Baths, a Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publication.
Kelly Carlisle of Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio was the designer on the project. Dean has nothing but admiration for Kelly and has worked with her many times. “She is a young up-and-coming designer who is really making an impact.” says Bires.
Every detail of the kitchen was meticulously planned and executed. For instance, the open shelves left and right of the range hood are one of the many unique features. Their simple appearance disguises the complexity beneath. As Dean explained, “This effort required utmost precision to integrate the wires and connections that allowed for LED lighting and outlets to be installed flush to the underside of the shelves.”
The custom hood provides glamour and is showcased beautifully against a wall of Calacatta Manhattan marble. The marble splash was mitered to a thickness of 2” and book-matched to further amplify the centerline axis of the kitchen. The 2” build-out is what created the recessed niches to house the herringbone tile which, in turn, became the backdrop for the shelves.
This kitchen remodel was anything but cookie cutter. The entire project went smoothly, and was completed in 14 weeks. I was very impressed with the look and functionality. I am not surprised it was selected for publication, as Kelly did an amazing job on the design and our team executed every detail.” says Bires.
Bires Remodeling and Kelly Carlisle certainly make a great team as evidenced by the impact of this beautiful kitchen
