Elegant Entertaining Made Easy

Merillat turns a too-small kitchen into a functional space for a big family.



Designated Work Zones Divide and Conquer

Josh and Kimberly Osburn of West Bloomfield, Michigan love to entertain. But with a narrow galley kitchen, there was no room for guests to gather. So the Osburns were thrilled to learn that as winners of the Today's Dream Kitchen Sweepstakes, they were getting a kitchen remodel complete with countertops, flooring, appliances and cabinets.

Merillat and the TV show, Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford, along with their Merillat dealer partners at KSI Kitchen & Bath, transformed the Osburn's kitchen into a beautiful, functional space with plenty of room for entertaining. The key was a new kitchen layout that designated separate work zones for a bar, pantry, dining island and home office while visually tying the whole space together.

The Big Reveal





How This Dream Kitchen Came to Life

It all comes down to smart design. Relocating the sink created a functional work triangle. An upgraded kitchen bar with glass-front cabinets for glassware now faces the new kitchen island with plenty of seating for guests. A pantry with roll-out trays, an appliance garage and a pop-up mixer shelf keep party prep out of sight. And the Merillat® Classic Fusion door style in dark Kona finish ties the whole space together with the contemporary look the Osburns love.
