When she was ready to downsize from her home in Town and Country and move to a multilevel condo in downtown Clayton, Bob Burmeister’s client called on him and the Marc Christian Fine Cabinetry team to help.

“She loved the location, but the home was in need of renovation to bring it up to date and be functional for her lifestyle,” Burmeister says.

Burmeister and his team redesigned her main living area to maximize the space with a gourmet kitchen, a built-in breakfast banquette and a beverage bar across from the main seating area of the family room.

“The tall ceilings, bright white custom cabinetry with glass doors and interior lighting, and Danby marble countertops with full-height backsplashes helped to make the limited space feel open and roomy, while the refinished dark wood floors, colorful artwork and unique light fixtures added contrast and character,” Burmeister says.
