Jennifer Gilmer and her team created my dream kitchen- light, airy, sleek, functional and timeless. I have much more storage as a result of Jennifer's thoughtful design and creative cabinet shelving and inserts. It is truly a pleasure to cook and entertain in our new kitchen.
With this being a basement of an older home, we had to get creative about concealing the functional elements of a basement. We created a bench seat next to the fireplace to conceal the sump pump, pulled forward the built in cabinets to allow for ducting space and opened up all the soffits to reduce the height and width where possible. The outcome was much more airy, open space, perfect for family gatherings.
“Having Sarah as our kitchen designer was the best part of the renovation. She has impeccable taste and is great to work with. She has won several awards for her work and some of it is a collaboration with a common friend, Christian Zapata. I would definitely recommend Sarah in a heart-beat!” – Mirna M.
"The kitchen is totally organized and most everything is where it belongs. It is so incredibly fabulous! I can't wait for you to see the result of your gorgeous design. In addition, the team who put everything together was amazing! Paul and George did such a great job and they were a pleasure to work with. Just a few thing remain to be worked out, and I know Paul is on top of it."
“We loved working with Sarah, she is a very talented design professional who ensured that our project was within budget, on time, exceeded our expectations and turned out absolutely beautiful!" – Maribeth Lowe

We absolutely recommend Paul and JGKB without reservation! We are both busy professionals...we could leave the job to Paul and know that the design was done with the utmost care and consideration to deadlines and budget. His engineering background allows him to deliver a room that is a balance of art and style and functional excellence.

We hired Paul Bentham to design our kitchen. He did an excellent job at all phases of the project, from educating us on our options to incorporating our feedback, to supervising the work. The end result was an award-winning kitchen that was even better than we had imagined. We would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone.
Jennifer Gilmer completely redesigned our kitchen making it a beautiful and functional upgrade to our 1990s home. Working with Jennifer and Meghan was an easy experience they are so expert and talented in their field. We are very pleased with the results of our project and highly recommend them for future projects.

JGKB was able to include all of our needs in a new space that is so much more functional and beautiful than we could have imagined. The talented and knowledgeable JGKB team made the design process go smoothly, and we couldn't be happier with the new hub of our house. We get nonstop compliments on our kitchen from everyone!

Paul… You put up with me for how long? 18 months? That alone deserves a medal. Congratulations for seeing your brilliant expertise and artistry on print. Could not have been this way without you. Kristen

Thanks again Paul. Seriously we are in absolute love with and awe of our kitchen. It’s incredible. And we can't wait to work with you and Mike again on our master bathroom. I can tell you that we worked with one of the premiere contractors here in the Baltimore area to do some other things and their work doesn't even come close to you and Mike in design or execution. Doesn't compare at all!!

As a professional interior designer, I value the expertise of specialists and often refer my clients to JGKB for kitchen design. I was sure that JGKB would deliver something unique for my new home in Nantucket. JGKB helped me see the space differently and incorporated disparate elements, balancing form and function.

Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath was recommended to me by a friend. Meghan Browne was a consummate professional and was very patient with me during the design process. She was more than happy to work with our interior designer and the project was a true team effort. Because of Meghan's patience and willingness to listen, we ended up with our dream kitchen. It is everything we wanted and it is so beautiful. We literally spend most of our time in this room, so it was worth every penny we invested in it to make it our very own. – Jennifer A.
