Chattanooga Room In The Inn Gets A New Kitchen And New Look

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Chattanooga Room in the Inn, a residential facility for homeless women and children, is chosen as a beneficiary in Karndean Designflooring’s 40 Good Floors for 40 Good Causes Campaign.  Rhonda Gay with Chattanooga Flooring Center nominated the non-profit agency.  At the same time, the Women’s Group of Christ United Methodist Church, under the direction of interior designer, Amy Winchester, chose the agency for a service project renovating the heavily used and outdated kitchen. 

The kitchen will receive new cabinets, countertops and fresh paint provided by the Women’s Group along with new flooring from Karndean.

  The flooring donation of 1500 square feet is enough for not only the kitchen but the remainder of the entire first floor of the facility.

All work is being donated by volunteers from various agencies and some from out of town.  Innovative Cabinetry will be installing the new kitchen cabinets while Floor Designs will install the donated flooring.  Removal of the old materials, prep work and painting will be done by volunteers from The Refuge, a family mission group from West Point, Ms. 

Renovation begins on Thursday in the kitchen with flooring expected to be installed on Friday.
