Kendall Design Build Wins Best Butler’s Pantry Award at Detroit Design Awards 2024

DETROIT, MI – The team at Kendall Design Build (KDB) is proud to announce our latest accolade at the 2024 Detroit Design Awards, where we were awarded the best butler’s pantry design for our exceptional work on a stunning remodeling project in Birmingham, Michigan.

The award-winning butler’s pantry is part of a recent addition to the clients’ kitchen, showcasing a rare blend of elegance, functionality, and inviting charm. This stately pantry is equipped with a wet bar and a cooking prep area, designed to meet the highest standards of both aesthetics and practicality.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for our work on this butler’s pantry,” said Terri Bailey, CEO of Kendall Design Build. “Our team is dedicated to transforming spaces into beautiful, functional works of art, and this project is a perfect example of that commitment.”

The pantry boasts slabbed quartz countertops that provide a durable yet sophisticated surface. Natural walnut shelves offer both storage and a warm, organic touch, while a champagne-bronze chandelier adds a luxurious focal point, enhancing the room’s elegance.

The butler’s pantry project was part of a larger remodel, which included updates to the kitchen, wet bar, fireplace, and other first-floor elements. The classic inset cabinetry, custom walnut shelves, and slabbed quartz counters were carried throughout these spaces, creating a cohesive and sophisticated look. Additional updates included new lighting, an opened staircase, custom trim work, and the addition of a drop zone for added convenience.

The team at KDB not only transformed the butler’s pantry but also elevated the entire first floor of the home, resulting in a space that is as beautiful as it is functional.

“We always strive to exceed our clients’ expectations,” added Bailey. “This award is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication to creating spaces that our clients will love for years to come.”
