Renovating is a mother, but it doesn’t have to be. BOXI, America’s favorite DTC cabinetry brand, offers an array of durable, sustainable cabinets in varying colors, along with decorative hardware and floating shelves, to make planning and completing a renovation that much easier. In honor of Mother’s Day, we reached out to four BOXI homeowners to share their stories. 

 

An Inspiration in Illinois

Homeowner Brittany Black found out she was pregnant just weeks after leaving her marriage. While moving and starting a family are two huge jobs on their own, the expectant mom added a renovation to the list. She purchased a 1920s bungalow and made over the kitchen with the help of her contractor father. The result is a light and airy space, which features BOXI’s Oat Slab cabinetry, geometric tile, and brass hardware.

“Kitchens are meant to be communal, and whatever that means for you and your family, BOXI delivers. I was pleased to have a seamless, stress-free experience. Whether it be meals or future homework assignments, my son and I get to enjoy our beautiful renovation.”

 

Clutter-Free in the Catskills

How does one design a kitchen with kids in mind? Diana Lovett’s new Catskills kitchen did just that with sophistication and function, as well as unexpected pops of color. The renovation, which was completed with guidance from Inspired Kitchen Design, keeps chaos at bay with its simple layout and Shaker-style BOXI cabinets.

“The way we designed our kitchen, all the cabinets are under-counter cabinets. That means that our kids can get the plates and cups and (ahem!!) napkins they need for themselves. It also makes it much easier for them to help unload the dishwasher. Basically, the layout of the kitchen has made it totally accessible to the kids. They love being able to reach everything.”

 

Modern in Mount Kisco

In Mount Kisco, New York, Ali Pugliese and Joe DiGiorgio took on a major renovation of their 1950s home using BOXI for a bright, updated kitchen, laundry, and mudroom. An open-concept kitchen with a Scandinavian-inspired look was top-of-mind, and BOXI made it possible with  Salt Slab cabinets throughout.

“There were so many challenges with renovating our kitchen, but working with the team at BOXI couldn’t have been easier.  The design process was so efficient, and as a mom to small kids, this was a must! We’re thrilled with the end result.”

“Cabinets that are stylish and durable enough for my kiddos made working with BOXI all too good! The entire process from selecting cabinets, ordering the cabinets, and applying for financing all in the comfort of my own home was so simple and quick to do. Raising three young children, I needed the process to be efficient and to have cabinets come quickly! BOXI made all that happen.”

Island Hopping

A lot goes into a kitchen renovation, but it’s usually hard to tell from a beautiful “after” shot. Our monthly series “Island Hopping” is about getting a behind-the-scenes account of what the process is like through honest conversations—you know, the kind that typically take place around a kitchen island. We’ll chat with designers, homeowners, and architects about their projects, hoping to peel back the curtain on picture-perfect spaces.
