Kitchen remodel a match made in heaven
Written by: Sarah J. Dills
It is often difficult for homeowners to put into words what they are looking for in a kitchen remodel. Sometimes they know exactly what they want. And every once in a while, it takes a designer to show a couple what they never knew they always wanted. George Gobes, president of Park Avenue Designs, is the perfect person to look beyond the aesthetic desires of his clients and really search to find their needs. “I take a lot of pride in the spatial planning I do with my clients,” Gobes says of his kitchen design process. “Because I’m also a cabinet maker, I want to know where the plates are going to be stored, how the dishwasher will be unloaded, how many steps it will take to get to the refrigerator. I see into my clients’ needs, and I give them exactly what they never knew they wanted.”
