The Plan

To help them in their quest for a larger kitchen, Alfredo—an HVAC contractor by day and a hotel bartender by night—and his wife, a mail carrier, turned to designer Linda McLaughlin of American Woodmark, a cabinet manufacturer. Her solution: Make room for a big island by taking down the wall to the dining room. Alfredo rallied three friends—a plumber, an electrician, and a carpenter—to handle everything from removing the wall to installing floor tile, appliances, lighting, and the island. The cabinets were installed by Lowe's, the exclusive supplier of the Shenandoah units the Espinels chose.

The homeowners chose Shenandoah chocolate-glazed cherry cabinets for their traditional European look, granite counters and stainless appliances for a modern touch, and the hardwood-look ceramĀ­ic tile floor for its low maintenance.
