Every attendee that came into our booth at KBIS went straight for the big, bright doors on our baking set – it’s like our designer Karen Salyer could read minds at this years KBIS show. People wanted to see something different but they also wanted something that felt authentic, nostalgic……. a relatable design….. or maybe they just wanted to feel excitement about something they already loved… baking…..
I personally love good design and with good design in a kitchen – a cook can do wonders – your steps become almost that of a perfectly choreographed dance and you are the star – with your extras (interior accessories planned perfectly) stealing the spotlight only for a few seconds here or there…. but in the Wellborn booth this year – Antigua was the star.
An eye-catching exterior that beckons you to the beach or our booth – the Antigua door style is a lovely faux louver style door but with Antigua there’s no faux style – it’s all real!
Illuminated Design: Motion Sensor LED Lighting makes it easy to find all your ingredients without searching in the dark.
Organization cuts down on Frustration: A well planned space is a joy to prep, cook, eat and clean in.
Space Optimization is the Name of the Game: Every inch thought about – Every inch planned to perfection.
The Little Drawer That Could: A single drawer can do multiple tasks – from storage to prep work (cutting board) you don’t skimp on ingredients so don’t skimp on your space.

Stylish design ideas can create a style all your own and a space you can live in.
Banquette Seating from Wellborn is a great way to utilize space for diners, blend different types of seating in one area, offer storage options below the seating and create a consistent design theme throughout your space.
Wellborn Wainscoting weaves a design theme through a space gently without being too much or too little….. just enough……
So it’s time to create your style and a space you’ll live in and love for years to come!
There were a number of goals to this space. We need to create a study that could accommodate
both her and him, provide lots of storage and allows him views out the back of the house towards
the water even when privacy is needed.
The study was designed with built ins flanking each of the shorter walls while leaving space in the center for a desk for him. On the side walls we created a desk area for her, lots of file drawers and storage for all the items they have. This was finished with light rail and bullet lighting to provide undercabinet lighting for the countertops.
The ceiling was lined in stain grade v-groove wood boards in a barrel so we added Wellborn
crown to each wall run and hid ambient lighting behind it to illuminate onto the ceiling. The rich,
Sable finish offered a nice contrast to the knotty cedar on the ceiling and let the cabinets stand
out. The client wanted a desk to match the cabinets so a freestanding desk was created with base
cabinets and a Wellborn wainscot panel. We finished off the desk top with a Wellborn top and
applied the edge molding in the field giving the whole room a cohesive look.
This is the 3rd project we were asked to do for this couple. We had helped them with their kitchen – and
now their pantry was in dire need of help. It had become a catch all for various items that didn’t quite have
a place in the main kitchen and consequently had become almost useless. We were tasked with cleaning out
and organizing the space, adding storage and function to this underutilized space
-Very cluttered, everything was shoved into place and very visible
-They wanted this to be an area that could house a microwave and second oven for overflow cooking during
-Wanted an area to house his espresso maker and accoutrement since it didn’t fit in the kitchen
-Wanted a sink for quick access to water and an extra place to clean up
-Wanted a space for bottle storage up and out of the way
-Lacked any kind of countertop space at all so no real work could be done in the space
-Didn’t want it to look too dark or heavy
-Their existing door swung into the pantry, making it hard to maneuver inside
-Added enclosed cabinet storage with Wellborn’s Prairie Maple Painted in the Divinity finish. Giving the
pantry a bright feel overall
-Bookcases that sit on the countertop provide open storage for a tight space. Clear mason jars provide an
attractive and functional way to store them
-A sink was added at the end of the pantry under the window, right next to the espresso and coffee makers
-An unused chimney was removed and recessed in the space we installed a new convection microwave and
second oven. Giving them plenty of extra cook space and getting it out of the way and off the countertop
-A shelf was added running along the kitchen wall to house their bottle storage where it won’t take up space
used by everyday items
-Added granite that matched their kitchen for a cohesive look
-Changed the door to a pocket door and added glass for a more open look and more light
