KSI Kitchen & Bath, Rochester Hills, MI
When conceptualizing a new KSI Kitchen & Bath showroom in Rochester Hills, MI, Lauren Tolles, co-owner of KSI and founder of Maison Birmingham, faced a challenge – namely, fitting three full kitchen displays (one functional) and three baths, as well as office space, a presentation room and a restroom, into 997 square feet. The goal was to provide inspiration to homeowners and designers; incorporate several cabinetry styles from multiple manufacturers, including Dura Supreme, Merillat and Medallion; and showcase multiple design styles in one vignette – all while maintaining elegance and not creating a cluttered feeling.
Vignettes in the showroom may feature inset and framed cabinetry in the same kitchen, as well as a mix of finishes, countertops and hardware. Harmonious, subtle combinations keep the space from feeling too cluttered, while organizational features provide space-saving examples to inspire visitors.
One of the bath vignettes features a small stock vanity elevated with fixtures and artisan wallpaper to demonstrate how small touches can add elegance to a space on a budget. The other baths feature transitional and contemporary styles to provide a wide variety of inspiration.
