Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and the heart knows what it wants....

A BIG kitchen island!  Move over tiny prep island.  You need room for storage, a place for meals, and surface area for entertaining!

Today's kitchens are open!  Which means, less wall for upper cabinets.  To gain lost storage you can opt for a working pantry.   This includes building in cabinets and counters.  Not only extra storage, but daily use applainces are no longer clutter on your new kitchen counters.  

Budget & Design Tip: Did you know that you can save $$ by recessing a full size fridge to give the appearance of a counter depth fridge?

Dining

No longer do we have one dining option in our home.  Just like our meals, the location can depend on the the time of day, the company gathered, and the weather.

Enjoy your morning coffee at the kitchen island.  Slide in the booth with the kids for an after school snack.  Host a retirement dinner with friends.  Have a birthday barbecue, pool side!

Working together, we will determine formal or casual locations, table sizes, storage, and lighting fixture placement.

Designer Tip: To avoid awkward dinner conversation, let's make sure the chandelier and the table are centered together!

 

Foyer

Time to greet your guest!  Or is it good partings? Regardless, if casual or formal.. memories will be made!  Pictures will be taken!

Remodel Tip:  If you are limited on space, consider extending your greeting area to the front porch.  Place potted plants and accent table for foyer feel. 

 

Office

A traditional office is formal and located at the front of the home. This creates a private setting while business takes place.  Historically positioned across from the main staircase or balanced with a formal dining.  

Today, causal locations are common.   Some spaces are the size of walk in closets.  Some prefer multiple locations to increase productivity.   If you work from home a lot, I suggest giving yourself a view.

Master Quarters

From the contemporary to the rustic, this is your chance to create a relaxing retreat!

Do you prefer to a quite spot to read a book or do you enjoy watching a movie in bed? 

If your partner's waking schedule is earlier than yours, consider placing closets in the master bathroom.  This allows one to dress without disturbing the others rest.

Did you know?  Most master baths can meet design standards outlined in the American Disability Act (ADA).  Is this is your "forever home"? We can Incorporated design recommendations from the National Aging in Place Council. 
 

New Construction Tip:  For an ADA compliant shower, recess the foundation and have the tile floated.  This will create a seamless entry.  No stepping over shower thresholds!
