COMO Living is proud to be the media sponsor for this year’s Kitchen’s in Bloom home tour taking place on May 1. This annual event is a fundraiser for Services for Independent Living. Each year the KIB team seeks out unique, beautiful and eye-catching kitchen remodels for the public to look at and ask questions about. Whether you’re looking to do a kitchen remodel or just need some design inspiration for a home project, this is an important day to mark on your calendar. Since this is our travel issue, we “traveled” to the five kitchens in the tour in order to give you a first look into this year’s fundraiser. Flip through the next few pages of this issue’s home feature for a sneak peek. Tickets can be purchased at D&H Drugstores; McAdams’ Ltd.; S. Stewart Home; Busch’s Florist; Allen’s Flowers, Inc.; Kent’s Floral Gallery or online at www.silcolumbia.org/kib. Other sponsors include Kerry Bramon Remodeling & Design, Dimensions in Wood, Columbia Daily Tribune, Kleithermes Homes & Remodeling, Missouri Employers Mutual, Ashley Furniture HomeStore, Downtown Appliance, Show Me Cabinets Ltd. and Spillman Contracting.
Kitchens In Bloom’s Presenting Sponsor, Kerry Bramon Remodeling & Design, completed this beautiful kitchen remodel. Elaine Porter’s vision for her kitchen was simple and beautiful, much like her cottage that sits off West Boulevard in Columbia. When you first enter the kitchen, you can’t help but notice the gorgeous backsplash and beautiful countertops. The clean, sophisticated, white kitchen has a true high-end feel to it. Not to mention her amazing glass door refrigerator from Downtown Appliance. From floor to ceiling, this kitchen is sure to impress even the toughest of critics.
