Tuesday Trends: Corner Decor

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Utilizing every inch of your home can be challenging.  Many want to pull items and shelves to the center of the wall.  When looking around your space, have you thought about the corners?  So many areas in our home can be valuable space that we just aren’t taking advantage of.

Resolution: Get Organized!

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

In our first post of 2015, we asked what your resolutions were for 2015.  Is one of your goals to get organized? With technology creeping more and more into our lives, clients often request a spot to corral all their gadget & gizmos in one central location.  Years ago, desks were often located in the kitchen as a central spot for the phone, calendar and as an area to pay bills.  To put a 21st century spin on this, instead of a designated desk, we often design an area to charge phones and tablets, house the family laptop and keep up with daily activities.  Depending on how much technology our clients use, this may be a completely digital area or still incorporate some traditional elements like a phone and mail cubbies.

We are currently working on a kitchen remodel for tech-savvy couple who requested a central spot in their kitchen to do just this plus keep track of the busy family calendar.  Below are some ideas we presented to them.  Check back to see how we incorporate this idea into their space!

Advances in Cabinet Technology

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Cabinet technology – is there such a thing?

In a world where technology is beginning to mix with nearly every aspect of our life we are having great advances in design for accessible interiors. We recently were notified of a new motorized cabinet option by Lusso Living Products that allows for your upper cabinets to come down and sit right off your counter-top. This is an amazing feat of engineering as the lift tucks away and hides within your upper cabinet, making your cabinet look like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Such a great option for clients that may be in a wheelchair.
