American Tile and Stone Design, Inc. is dedicated to providing customers with flexibility and limitless design choices for all their tile needs. “Tile is just as effective and beautiful in stone as it is in ceramic,” says company owner Alessandra Christensen. As their spacious showroom demonstrates, customers can order stone as a tile option in any dimension, even the size of an entire shower wall, giving their project a sleek, original look.

“This kitchen’s owner is very outgoing. We wanted the design to fit her personality,” says Michelle Moulton of Bayside Kitchen and Bath. The goal in this project was to create an open and inviting space, using bright lighting to accentuate the home’s amazing view of the Bourne Bridge. The custom cabinetry is suited to the client’s specific needs, and ties the project together in a way that is both effective and elegant.

This traditional kitchen remodel was put together in Orleans by BLDG Group. Owner Jim Sangiovanni comments that almost every fixture featured in the project is custom made, including the stainless hood and the handmade backsplash. “We complimented the soft curvature of the custom ceiling with curved base end cabinets to tie it all together,” he says. BLDG Group’s attention to detail is made obvious through this eye-catching project.
