Julie Burch & Richard Valmain opened Grand Kitchen and Bath in St. Petersburg in May 2004. The design showroom & retail shop offers eight cabinet lines,
all made in North America. "No Chinese cabinets," Julie says. Grand Kitchen also offers several lines and styles of countertops, sinks,
faucets, backsplash tile and floor tile, to fit every taste and budget.
Tell us a secret! My personal kitchen is small & simple.
