This year’s Kitchen Tours features five incredible homes on the tour located in four premier neighborhoods: Eastborough, Vickridge, Lakepoint and Rocky Creek.
One of the homes on this year’s Kitchen Tours showcases one increasingly popular concept – the outdoor kitchen. Not only will you envy this fantastic outdoor entertaining space, complete with a full kitchen and fire pit, you will admire the well-manicured plants and flowers that will make you want to stop by your favorite nursery on your way home to start a little landscaping project of your own! Not to mention, this is the home of a Junior League of Wichita sustaining member, so you can only guess where you will be able to find us this summer!
Mitzi Beach will once again join us on the tour – this year in a different role. You may remember that Mitzi opened her home up to be featured on last year’s inaugural tour. This year, she’s participating in the tour as the designer of one of the kitchens! From the sound of the project, it wasn’t easy work either - moving walls, changing around rooms, and even enclosing a former screened in porch to house the bright and cheery new dining room.
Presenting Sponsor Kitchen Concepts had a hand in two of the homes on the Kitchen Tours. One home is still under construction. The contractor assures us that the remodel will be complete on time and rest assured, it will be a kitchen fit for a gourmet.
The second home brought to us by Kitchen Concepts is owned by a Junior League of Wichita Cookbook Committee member, so you can imagine she will be asked to host a meeting or two! They started with a kitchen remodel and couldn’t stop… She is ready to show the results of their hard work and the whole house will be on display!
The fifth home on the tour is a labor of love – eighteen months of love, to be exact. After gutting the house to the studs and going room by room to talk design, this home was lovingly designed by the homeowners and they have mastered perfection! Every detail has been accounted for and every space in the entire home was carefully designed – all the way down to the length of the hardware. This house is one you do not want to miss - truly spectacular!
Speaking of details, we’re happy to announce that this year’s Kitchen Tours once again feature tablescapes, floral arrangements, and table settings provided by Presenting Sponsor, the Plaid Giraffe located at 302 North Rock Road. Come see what the Plaid has dreamed up for these spaces so you can experience what entertaining at each of these homes could look like!
It wouldn’t be a Junior League of Wichita event unless we had a surprise up our sleeves. Presenting Sponsor In the Bag Cleaners, has really outdone itself. Participants in the Kitchen Tours will have the chance to win a spectacular prize!
New this year, those attending Kitchen Tours (and those unable to attend) are invited to gather at The Hill, 4800 East Douglas for Kitchen Tours After Hours. This is a great place to meet up with your spouse and girlfriends who may or may not have been on the tour with you, your friends or mom that you toured with and discuss all the gorgeous homes you saw. Ten percent of all sales between 4-8pm will go to Junior League of Wichita.
