A Place to Call Home

Modern Supply helps homeowner with log home kitchen remodeling project
Colonel Andy Jordan and wife Debbie have traveled the world and lived in places many of us only dream of. After a long and successful Army career, the Jordan’s began to think about retirement and where to settle down and call home. An East Tennessee native, Colonel Jordan was drawn back to the Knoxville area with its natural beauty and easy lifestyle and Debbie fully agreed.

The top priority was updating the kitchen. The plan was to replace the dated appliances and relocate the sink and cooktop, keeping the cabinetry. After consulting with their contractor, they realized that repairs would be difficult and patch-work, and new cabinetry was the best way to go.

Debbie visited Modern Supply and sales manager-designer Debbie Johnson helped her select products that complemented the coziness of a log home and Jordans’ tastes. “I didn’t have a look in mind, but after Debbie’s visit to measure she made great recommendations,” comments Jordan.

Mixing maple cabinetry finishes and quartz countertop colors created visual interest while complimenting each other. The primary cabinet finish was called sand with a brushed grey glaze, paired with Cambria’s Devon countertop and a Blanco sink in truffle. The island was a stone finish with grey glaze, Cambria’s Yorkshire top, and a Blanco prep sink in biscotti. Stainless faucets from Brizo’s Talo collection were selected for their water-saving SmartTouch® Technology.

Little extras go a long way in highlighting the beauty of the cabinetry. Glass doors with LED light ribbon running along the inside brighten up the corner. Crown molding and light rail were added to complete the look.

Debbie selected stainless appliances and the double oven she always wanted. The sink and cooktop locations were switched in the redesign. The sink was installed below the window and the stovetop relocated to the enlarged island space. The island was already plumbed, making it perfect for a prep sink.

A corner nook was utilized by including a beverage cooler, TV, storage and a display cabinet with lighting. A perfect fit!
