Gary Hubbard, a designer at Kitchen Creations, Inc., created an award-winning “other” design that was inspired by the owner’s appreciation for an amber American spirit—bourbon. Gary successfully transformed an empty basement into an entertaining bar that embodies all the smooth, complex qualities of its inspiration.
A Kentucky couple who loves to entertain at home, Gary’s clients decided to turn their unfinished basement into a beautiful bar. To begin the process, he invited them to visit his showroom. Once he understood the couple’s wants and needs—he knew Waypoint cabinets would be the perfect fit. From past experience, he also knew Waypoint provides an excellent quality product with precise finishes and a variety of decorative options.
For the wife—it was love at first sight. She was instantly drawn to the smooth finish of Painted Silk—these creamy cabinets were exactly what the couple craved. Gary injected solid character into the airy backdrop using a brick wall and “wood-look” luxury vinyl tile. Displayed on iron-supported shelving, the husband’s Bourbon bottle collection was elevated to art. The design paired traditional cabinetry with a well-worn bourbon barrel sink. The contrast of the combination reflects the couple’s unique style.
Gary admits much of his remodel success stems from his relationship with Waypoint. He says, “Any situation that has come up, and there have been some odd ones, Waypoint has—for lack of better words—‘had our backs.’ It sounds like there is more than one winner here. Cheers to winning watering holes!
