Welcome

“Well-Orchestrated Kitchens. . . A Heart of the Home Tour” invites you to tour and experience some of the most beautiful kitchens in Grand Rapids on May 5th.

Welcome to a fabulous event devoted to showcasing a selection of our city’s most exquisite residences, specifically highlighting the latest in kitchen design, architecture, and a range of exceptional interior design and styles. 

Whether you’re planning a kitchen renovation and are in search of ideas, or simply interested in seeing inside a beautiful home, you won’t want to miss this event.

In addition to seeing these fabulous kitchens, there will be a variety of food and home-related activities, like cookie decorating demonstrations. And how could we host an event that benefits the GR Symphony without filling the event with beautiful music? Come prepared to delight in hearing musicians from the Symphony and Youth Symphony, who will perform during tour hours!
