A new purpose for out-of-commission cabinets

This homeowner’s friend in Chicago wanted to remodel her young kitchen. She decided to give the cabinetry and counter tops to her friend in town.

We were able to reconfigure the existing cabinetry and add some new cabinetry to make this remarkable transformation for our client.

Refrigerator remodel

Jake,

I am getting a new refrigerator that is larger than the space the current one is in. I would like to relocate the frig to a different area, but there is a wall vent (for heat and air conditioning) there. Can this be moved so that the air comes out under the cupboard next to the refrigerator? If so, is this difficult?

- Linda

Linda,

This is not a job for the un-trained homeowner.

Photos from the NARI Remodeled Homes Tour

We recently participated in the KC NARI Remodeled Homes tour, showing two of our remodeling projects – a kitchen remodel in Brookside and in Fairway.  Over 300 people visited the homes.

Pictured in the Brookside home is Chris Peterson, one of our Production Managers and in the Fairway home is Donna Kirsopp, the design consultant.

Adding more receptacles

One of our designers went out to measure a home so she could start drawings for new concepts of the space. Although not unusual of a house build at this time, she noticed they had over 11’-6” of kitchen cabinetry with NO countertop receptacles. There is only one receptacle in the area, and it is off to the side at the light switch location.

Mirrors can make a room

Mirrors can always be used as design elements. They can add dimension to a small room by eliminating the boundaries of walls and can be used to increase the amount of both natural and supportive lighting as it virtually bounces around the room.

Mirror options go beyond silvered mirrors to include antiqued, tinted or concave or convex shapes.

Gorgeous Staircase Transformation

We recently completed a remodel, part of which included updating the main staircase of our clients’ home.

This update included new oak treads and risers, new carpet runner, wrought iron spindles and paint.  The change in this home is so dramatic that it seems difficult to believe that it is actually the same house we originally walked into.

A week in Wisconsin

Megan and Debby just returned from a great trip in Kohler, WI. Here are a few pictures they took along the way.

This is a picture taken at the Kohler Design Center - a wall of toilets!! The girls toured the Kohler Manufacturing plant and saw actual cast iron tubs and sinks being made – what an amazing process.

Helping those who help

Debby was the chairperson of this year's NARI Remodeled Homes tour. Proceeds from the tour were donated to the Children's Place.
