Collaboration, philanthropy and education are drivers for designer
With over 20 years of experience in custom kitchen design, Nadia Subaran is passionate about the challenges and merits of good design. ‘Form follows function’ is an enduring and guiding inspiration in all of Subaran’s designs. She is co-founder and co-owner of Aidan Design in Silver Spring, MD, which specializes in custom kitchen and bath designs, emphasizing ergonomics and functionality. This year, Aidan Design celebrates its 20th year in business.
Creating thoughtful living spaces that reflect the character and lifestyle of each client, while being organized and balanced, is Subaran’s goal for each project. She enjoys and promotes a collaborative experience, working closely with each homeowner, builder and other design professionals. She strives to make the process not only informative, but also exciting and engaging.
Over the years, Subaran and her team have shared their talents with the local community, working with Martha’s Table and participating in four Washington, DC Design Houses to benefit Children’s Hospital, among other things. She enjoys sharing her passion for design as a teacher as well and served as an adjunct professor for a semester at George Washington University’s Interior Design program. She also enjoys volunteering at her daughter’s school, where she has discussed her work experiences and education, and what it means to start your own business.
