GAITHERSBURG, MD: FineCraft Contractors, Inc., ( has a remodeling project that is featured in the latest issue of Bethesda Magazine.

The remodeling project consisted of making the client’s living and kitchen space more open, modern and full of natural light to brighten up the rooms. The client needed to use the space they had in a smarter way and desired an open-concept kitchen/family room, and so they reached out to FineCraft to get the job done.

Korva, the client for this project, stated, “We didn’t need more space, we just needed to use it smarter. It was very compartmentalized, and we wanted an open-concept kitchen/family room where large groups could gather. Now we use the dining room, which we hadn’t really done much with before. I feel like we are taking full advantage of all the rooms in the house.”

Another past client, Lynne Oakes, said, “FineCraft Contractors completely revamped our family room. Tore out old dated paneling, and ‘popcorn’ ceiling. Now it is not all chopped up looking and it is calming to look into it. Also they made custom bookcases on the sides of the fireplace that have ample storage below and great display space above. I’m very pleased with the results and the respectful people who came into our home to do this work.”
