  • West Mobile Kitchen with GE Appliances

    This Coast Design kitchen features all GE Profile and GE Monogram appliances. It's located in a new home in the Stonehedge subdivision in West Mobile, Alabama. The home was built to the owner's specifications by local builder Chris Price. The vent hood, dishwasher, cook top, trash compactor, and double wall ovens are all GE Profile series in stainless steel. The icemaker and beverage centers for the indoor and outdoor kitchen are GE Monogram, also in stainless steel. 



  • Fog and Graphite Kitchen

     

      

    This Coast Design kitchen was designed and created for custom home builder Marquis Properties by our very talented designer Dwain Arterburn. It's located in the Avalon subdivision in Daphne, Alabama. We used Integrity Cabinets with a Capital door style and a paint finish. The primary cabinet color in the kitchen is Fog and the island color is Graphite. We love the look of the over-sized island. It opens up the floor plan and draws plenty of oohs and ahhs!

     

     

     

      

    The beverage center/wet bar is located in the dining area, adjacent to the kitchen. It's still being installed (hence the missing under counter appliance!), but we can already tell that it's going to be perfect. The contrast of the Integrity Cabinets in Fog against the dark counter top and warm backsplash is part of what sets this design apart.

      

    We love the finish Marquis chose for their master bathroom cabinets and tub surround.

  • Monday Motivation: Bosch Chicago Kitchen

    Today's kitchen inspiration comes from Bosch Home Appliances USA's facebook page. It displays Bosch appliances like the ones we sell and display in our kitchen showroom in Mobile, Alabama. The stainless steel refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and range are a perfect complement to the grey/beige stained cabinets, soft hardwood floors and dark granite countertops. The wall of windows doesn't hurt the ambience either. 

    If you're interested in Bosch appliances for your new kitchen or remodel project, set up an appointment or stop by our Coast Design showroom and let us help you pick the perfect cabinets, appliances, countertops and hardware to set your space apart!

  • Big City Kitchen with a Rustic Feel

    Today's inspiration comes from the pages of Kitchen & Bath Design News featuring a Chicago Big City kitchen with a rustic, suburban feel. It features a Viking range and ventilation hood, 30' Viking refrigerator and a separate 30' Viking freezer giving this family plenty of food storage but maintaining a sophisticated look.

    It also features a large kitchen island which is as functional as it is fabulous, with plenty of seating, a built-in wine refrigerator and a second sink. The designer mentioned something that caught our attention and we feel it's worth passing on to our readers and clients; it can be tricky to find the perfect countertop slab that can accommodate an island of this magnitude, so it's often practical to pick out your countertop prior to finalizing your cabinetry order so you won't find yourself in a fix down the road.

    Do you love this design? Pin it and bring your inspiration(s) with you for your first appointment with one of our talented kitchen designers at our cabinet and appliance showroom in Mobile, Alabama. We love combining your inspirations, creativity and vision with proven, functional design elements to create a kitchen that's right for YOU. 

    We're also proud to offer the very best in appliance brands, including the Viking range, fridge and freezer featured above.

  • Monday Motivation: Newport Beach Dream Kitchen

    This Newport Beach kitchen is open and airy, yet chic, modern and practical. It features a unique double island with bench and barstool seating in between. We love that the dining area is a prominent feature, giving this room a comfortable, social vibe. The paneled walls and wooden ceiling beams combine to to bring a rustic aesthetic to this modern beach house. 

    We love the combination of stainless steel range, double stacked ovens and refrigerator with french doors and freezer drawers with the white, open shelving and base cabinets. The grey granite countertops and farm sink give this room an air of softness and a nice contrast to the chrome faucets and fixtures. The wet bar is featured prominently, with a wooden shelved wine chiller and open shelving to display the barware, crystal and booze. Light hardwood floors and a rustic farmhouse table accent the large pendant lighting and creamy linen slip covers on the chairs. Whoever styled this kitchen got it right!

    If this is the inspiration you've been looking for, you've come to the right place. Stop by our showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W in Mobile, Aabama. We'd love to work with you on designing and installing the kitchen of your dreams. We do new construction, remodels, renovations and additions for any room of the home or commercial space. The sky is the limit when it comes to design and we offer the very best in cabinet, counter top, hardware and appliance brands like Wellborn Cabinet, GE Monogram, Viking, Bosch, Whirlpool, KitchenAid and much, much more.

  • Friday Feature: Bright Light Kitchen

    Today's kitchen inspiration stopped us dead in our tracks. We couldn't look away. It was too perfect.

    This kitchen embodies all that is popular and on trend in kitchen design right now. It features bright, white cabinets, a vaulted white ceiling and natural light for days. The skylights, windows, and french doors give this kitchen an airy, warm vibe. And forget fluorescent lighting! This kitchen pulls off the large pendant lighting trend with ease. We love the large, rectangular island with paneling to match the cabinets and tops that are in perfect contrast to the woodgrain, butcher block counter tops flanking the cooktop across the aisle. The modern stainless steel appliances take a kitchen with a french country feel and brings it forward into the now. The design blends cabinets, drawers of varying depth, and open shelving and pairs perfectly with the custom vent hood. 

    Feeling inspired to replicate this look in your new kitchen? Give us a call or stop by our showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W in Mobile, Alabama. Our designers would love to hear your vision and get you started on the path to your dream kitchen. Our goal is to make the process not only easy, but fun too!

  • On Trend: The Modern Wet Bar

    We are seeing a resurgence of the wet bar in new home construction and remodeling projects. We know what you're thinking, and no... the 80's didn't call. This isn't your parents' wet bar, jutting out from the corner of the living room, sitting atop that orange shag carpet, adorned with white pleather bar stools and glittery plastic stir sticks. Unless you're into that sort of thing. 

    We're talking about a modern, in-home cocktail-filling and wine-pouring station. Chic under-counter wine reserves, chillers and cellars. Beer dispensers. Clear, cubed, or "Sonic" ice makers. Compact under-counter refrigerators. 

    Since in-home bars have been on our radar lately, we've assembled a collection of the beauties that are inspiring us this week. Enjoy!

    At Coast Design Kitchen & Bath, we offer a wide variety of residential appliances perfect for your at-home bar. We have GE Monogram Stainless Steel Beverage Centers, under-counter bar refrigerators, wine reserves and double-drawer refrigerators. We're proud to offer Scotsman Ice's Brilliance line of "Sonic ice" makers. With their quality line of residential undercounter refrigeration systems, Perlick makes it easy to add refrigeration to any room of the home, including the outdoor home bar. Perlick's Signature Series Beer Dispenser lineup pours cold, fresh brews that are sure to impress your guests. We also recommend the KitchenAid Architect Series wine cellar with its true dual temperature zones that allow you to store red and white wines and different temperatures. Canted racks let the bottles nestle at a slight angle that helps prevent the cork from drying out. 

    Viking offers a quality line of undercounter refrigerators, drawers and beverage centers as well as their popular ice machines.

  • Scotsman Sonic Ice at Coast Design

     Pinterest is abuzz this season with the residential nugget "Sonic" ice craze. Scotsman has now brought the same Original Chewable Ice that took the country by storm when they first introduced it to the foodservice industry in 1981 into homes, clubhouses, and outdoor kitchens across the country.

    Coast Design Kitchen & Bath in Mobile, Alabama is proud to offer Scotsman's full line of residential appliances,
     including the Brilliance Nugget Ice Machine!

    Brilliance ice machines by Scotsman produce the kind of ice you need to make the most of any beverage occasion. Ice that is taste-free and odorless. Ice that doesn't clump in the glass or excessively dilute your drink. Ice soft enough to take on the flavor of your beverage to create a better tasting drink. 

    Brilliance ice machines have the production capacity to keep ice in your guests' glasses to keep the party going. These residential appliances are also energy efficient, using less than half the energy and one-third the water of previous models. Indoor and outdoor models are available. The under-counter models meet your ice needs without taking up a lot of space and blends seamlessly into the aesthetic of any kitchen, beverage center or wetbar. They can even be installed with a custom wood front to match surrounding cabinetry, enabling them to virtually disappear. 

    Stop by our Coast Design showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W in the Tillman's Corner area of Mobile, Alabama if you're interested in a Brilliance Ice Machine for your home or office. Or if you're simply craving a refreshing cup of "Sonic Ice", we've got a working model on display full of chewable, odorless, delicious Sonic ice!

  • First Day of Spring


    The first day of Spring on the Gulf Coast couldn't have been any more perfect. We're closing up for the day, shutting down our computers, and heading out to enjoy the last few hours of this glorious weather. 

    We live and work in a truly beautiful place, don't we?

  • One Magnificent Mudroom

    Today's inspiration comes from John B. Murray Architect. There are so many things we love about this sunny, open entryway. It's the quintessential modern mud room and sets the scene for what is sure to be an immaculate, well-designed home. Glass doors that let the light pour onto the grey, slate tile floors. Bench seating and built-in cabinetry, with an open shelf for quick store, but easy access. We love the baskets full of sports equipment. The flooring is smart. Tile floors combat muddy boots coming in from the yard before they make it to the rest of the home. The hardwood floors in the kitchen and bright, white open shelving have us itching to see the rest of this home. 

    Are you considering renovating your home and adding or updating a mudroom? We can help. Stop by our newly expanded showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W Suite 1A in Mobile, Alabama near Tillman's Corner or call/email us to schedule an appointment. We'd love to discuss the cabinetry, appliance, counter top, hardware (etc., etc.) and design possibilities for your space. 

  • Cambria Coastal Collection Galloway


    Cambria has recently introduced a new line of quartz countertops called the Coastal Collection. Their newest design is Galloway, above. This gorgeous countertop is engineered to create "the clashing of rock, sand and water" balancing "neutral tones with striking variation." 

    If you're interested in a Cambria countertop for your new home construction or kitchen remodel, stop by our showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W in Mobile, Alabama to view our samples and learn about the benefits of this unique product. There are many options when it comes to countertops-- marble, granite, laminate, engineered, quartz, etc.-- and part of our job is helping you pick out the one that's right for YOU. 

  • Bright White Kitchens

    The all-white kitchen has been a trend in the South for decades now. When done right, it lends an air of purity, cleanliness, and can even make a kitchen feel larger. We're seeing a resurgence of glass-front cabinets, which pair beautifully with bright, white cabinets. We love the white kitchen so much we've dedicated a Pinterest Board to them! Below we've compiled some of our favorite Bright White Kitchens from around the web. Which is your favorite and why? Click the photo to view its source and more photos from the collection. 


    The kitchen above utilizes white shaker kitchen cabinets, which are increasing in popularity among our Coast Design clients. We offer a variety of shaker-style doors, many of which can be seen displayed in our showroom in Mobile, Alabama. This kitchen also has marble countertops. We love the use of the large kitchen island with sink. 

    We're seeing dark floors utilized to give contrast to bright white cabinets and countertops. 

     

    We like that this owner juxtaposed a clunky, modern range and range hood with soft granite countertops, chic pendant lighting and white cabinets. The combination of hard and soft make this kitchen interesting. 

    Just because you don't have a large, open space doesn't mean you can't have a fabulous and functional kitchen. 

    We like the white cabinetry, warm wood floors, and neutral decor of this California kitchen. 

    There's something so fresh and modern about the vivid Aztec-inspired rug, paired with the dark floors and sharp white cabinets. Also... that backsplash!

    If you're ready to turn your kitchen dream into a kitchen REALITY, stop by our showroom at 5253 Hwy 90 W in Mobile, Alabama or give us a call at 251-666-7920 to schedule an appointment. Consultations are free. No matter your budget, we have the expertise, products, and brands to bring your vision to life. Don't have a vision, but know you're ready for a change? We can help in the vision department too. We look forward to working with you!

  • HBA Event at Showroom a Success

    We LOVED hosting the Home Builder's Association of Metro Mobile's Business After Hours Event at our newly-expanded cabinet and appliance showroom in Mobile, Alabama on Tuesday! Despite the cold rain, we had an amazing turnout. The food, providing by GE, Viking, and even some of our own, was delicious and it was ALL prepared right here in our working kitchens. The door prizes provided by GE, Viking, Bertazzoni and others were phenomenal. 

    For anyone who visited with us Tuesday night who wants a more in-depth tour of the showroom, we invite you to stop back by! We are proud to offer the Gulf Coast's premier cabinet and appliance brands and to work with the BEST granite and natural stone counter top fabricator in the region. 

    We appreciate all the support from our partners, associates, community, and CLIENTS! You are why we're here and on track to make 2014 our most exciting year yet. Thanks to HBA of Mobile, Alabama for being such a champion of our industry and for provided an avenue for awesome events like the Business After Hours. 

  • On Trend: Pot Filler Faucets


    Pot fillers, which have been a staple in commercial and restaurant kitchens for years, decades even, are becoming more prevalent in the home. Whether your pot-filler faucet is deck-mounted (on the countertop like a regular faucet but not centered over a sink) or wall-mounted, it's attractiveness and practicality cannot be beat. Pot fillers have articulated arms that allow you to move them over to your pot when it needs to be filled and then fold them neatly against a wall, so they are tucked neatly out of your way. 

    We've compiled some of our favorite photos of pot filler faucets in beautiful, practical home kitchens. Take a look. 

    Should you opt for a pot filler faucet over a traditional faucet? That depends. If you're cooking almost daily or have strength, back, or weight-bearing limitations, the pot filler is a great option for you. It reduces strain on your body from having to lug gallons of water from the sink to the stove. When you consider that a gallon of water weighs more than 8 pounds, and think about how big your stew pot is- that's a lot of weight to lift and tote around! It can also save time. When your meal requires cooking quickly or multi-tasking, a kitchen pot-filler is the answer. It fills the pot right on the stove, saving the space in your sink for vegetables, strainers, clean-up, etc. Another reason our clients opt for the pot filler is strictly aesthetic. They look great and are an impressive addition to a kitchen. 

    * Coast Design Kitchen & Bath specializes in new home or remodel design and offers a variety of cabinet, counter top, and appliance brands. We do not specialize in plumbing fixtures; however we have working pot fillers in our live kitchens in the showroom. Stop by any time during business hours or schedule an appointment to discuss whether this growing trend is right for your new kitchen or remodel project.

  • Southern Kitchen Inspiration


    Today's kitchen inspiration comes from Trisha Troutz' blog. We love this Atlanta kitchen for SO many reasons! It encompasses almost every element of style that is popular (read: requested!) in Southern kitchen design at the moment. From the bright white cabinetry and counter tops to the lucite pulls and open shelving, this kitchen is a dream. The pin lighting, beadboard ceiling, and over-the-top hood are some of the details that make this kitchen pop. The wall of windows casting gorgeous light throughout the room doesn't hurt either! The homeowners' personal style shines through in the decor, backsplash, and lighting accessories. 

    Do you love this kitchen? It can be yours and we can help. 

    Stop by our showroom at:
    5253 Hwy 90 W in Mobile, Alabama
    or call for an appointment

  • Before and After Story


  • Coast Design on Instagram


    We've found a new source of inspiration and we can't get enough. Are you loving Instagram as much as we are? We love following local taste-makers, designers, stay-at-home moms (and working moms), chefs (and amateur chef), artists, fashionistas, carpenters, college students and companies and getting behind-the-scenes glimpses of their worlds. We've found inspiration in their ideas, designs, products, homes, and lives. 

    We'll be using instagram to give back with a little inspi-karma! Follow us at instagram.com/coastdesign to see images of our completed kitchen, bath, and closet designs, new products from door styles, to finishes to new appliances models and features, and some re-posts of our local loves. 

  • It's Not Impossible

    Nelson Mandela once claimed "it always seems impossible until it's done." Surely, he was talking about kitchen renovation, right? We kid.

    New home construction and kitchen renovation can seem like a daunting, impossible task, especially for first-timers. The dreaming, the planning, the pinning, the measuring. The door style, the finish, the flooring. The countertops, the backsplash, the appliances. The list of decisions can seem endless. After all, they say nothing worth having comes easy, right? We're here to prove to you that it IS possible!

    At Coast Design Kitchen & Bath, we believe the process of creating your dream space should be simple, stress-free and certainly fun! Whether you're a do-it-yourselfer or in need of professional design and installation services, we're here to help see you through the process from inception to finale. 

    For a rundown on exactly how our process works, see our Process page. And as always, email or message us (or leave a comment on this post) with any questions. Let's get started. 

  • NYE 2013

  • How to Clean your Front Loader Washing Machine


    The Clean & Scentsible blog had a great post earlier this year about how to properly clean your front loader washing machine. Many people don't realize that front loaders are more susceptible to germs, mildew and mold than top loaders and require a little more periodic maintenance. 

    The rubber gasket is the area that collects the most dirt and mold. To get it clean, our source recommends using bleach. She says to "start by wiping down the whole gasket with a white rag soaked in a 50/50 mixture of bleach and warm water. Make sure you pull back the rubber gasket to clean inside as well. If there is still mold remaining, soak a towel with your bleach mixture, shove it into the gasket, and let it sit for 30 minutes. After soaking, remove the towel and scrub the gasket gently with an old toothbrush. Wipe down the gaskets with a clean dry cloth until no residue remains." 

    To learn about the rest of the process, you can visit her blog at Clean and Scentsible!

  • Stain Solutions


    Susan Taylor, a former educator at The University of Illinois, has put together THE coolest comprehensive list of solutions to the world's biggest stain problems A-Z. You simply find your stain and their site gives you a list of the supplies you'll need and the preferred method for removing the stain. There's even a search bar. 

    In addition, they provide general care tips for carpet, upholstery, and washables fabrics as well as the stain tips you'll need to clean them. 

    We just thought this was too cool not to pass along!

  • Zephyr Hood Closeout


    We've taken over the former Great Kitchens appliance showroom in Mobile, Alabama and are combining it with the current Coast Design Kitchen & Bath cabinet showroom next door. As we revamp this space and bring in brand new appliances, we must say goodbye to some of the current appliances and accessories. 

    But that's good news for you! We are replacing this functional, like-new Zephyr 48" Okeanito Wall Hood. It originally retailed for $4,055 but we're selling it for $2,000. Our loss is your gain! 

    To see it in action, visit our showroom (we're open!) at 5253 Hwy 90 W in the Tillman's Corner area of Mobile, Alabama. Or give us a call at 251-666-7920 to inquire about it. 

    This Zephyr range hood is a beauty. Its timeless design that always gets noticed! It has perforated side panels which allow it to give off gentle ambient light to bring a calming glow to a kitchen. 

  • Christmas 2013 Hours

  • 2013 Holiday Food Drive

    canned fruit and veggies
    breakfast foods (grits, oatmeal, healthy cereal)
    hygiene items (shampoo, soap, even hotel samples!)

  • Building the New


    As a new year approaches, it's time to start working on those New Year's resolutions. Here at Coast Design, we look forward to all that 2014 has in store for us. New products, new designs, new projects. The new clients who will inspire us to think outside the box and stretch our creativity to create innovative kitchen and bath designs. Clients who will teach us as much as we teach them. New opportunities to earn and retain the trust of homeowners, builders, and remodelers on the Gulf Coast. We expect 2014 to be our best year yet and we thank you for your support and patronage!

  • Details Make the Design

    At Coast Design we have a saying. Great design is in the details. The great Charles Eames believed in that idea and built his iconic designs around it. We believe in it too. 

    We strive to provide our clients with the complete package. We listen, we consult, we design. We value the importance of inspiration and borrowing from images and ideas that move us. But we also value creativity and innovation. We encourage our clients to come to us with ideas, visuals, or just an overall "feel" of what they want their new kitchen, bath, wet bar, or outdoor space to be. From there, we are here to guide you through the process and inject all of the details that will make your space uniquely yours!

    Our team is knowledgeable, experienced and enthusiastic! We are proud to offer nationally reputable cabinet and appliance brands. We work with the greatest granite and stone counter top fabricators in the region. We can help you choose from a wide array of hardware, pulls, hoods, accessories and more to put the perfect finishing touch on any space. Did we mention our designers are second to none?

    We invite you to stop by or make an appointment to see our new and improved showroom in the Tillman's Corner area of Mobile, Alabama. We've taken over the former Great Kitchens showroom, revamped it and added more models of name brand appliances that range from entry level to top of the line. No matter your need, when it comes to appliances, we've got you covered. 

  • Small Kitchen, Big Impression


    Today we are inspired by this off-the-charts awesome kitchen. This image proves that you can bring ultimate luxury to even a small space (although it sure helps having those high ceilings)! The china and glassware are proudly displayed with glass front cabinets in bright white. The dark counter tops provide a striking contrast and the Viking appliances ensure that you're cooking (or cooling, or warming, or grilling) with quality and power. We're also loving the industrial-feel light fixtures and hardware. 

    Inspired to transform your small space? See?! It can be done! Stop by our Coast Design showroom in Mobile, Alabama or make an appointment to meet with a designer and let's get started. We've got great cabinet door styles and stains to choose from, a wide array of hardware options and door pulls, the perfect stone counter top, as well as access to the full line of Viking appliances.

  • Before & After Story: Dog River Laundry Room

    This remodeled laundry room in a home on Dog River in Theodore, Alabama was designed by Coast Design Kitchen & Bath's Anne Will (Hans-VanMeter) in Mobile, Alabama. Twilley Builders was the general contractor. The cabinets are Wellborn Estate Custom Collection. This is a great example of a simple, yet effective laundry room make-over that took the room from a cluttered eye-sore to an elegant space with high functionality. 


  • Bertazzoni New Product Alert

    K+BB says about this product, "Go bold in the kitchen with Bertazzoni's new Arancio color for its Professional Series range. The color, an eye-catching orange, was inspired by the foods of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy where Bertazzoni manufactures all of its products. The company has also introduced size new features in its line of high-quality ranges, including brass burners, increased BTU power, precision control gas valves, soft-motion door hinges, and ergonomically stylized handle and telescopic glide racks."

  • Historic Downtown Mobile Kitchen Remodel


    Built in the late 1800's, this home is listed on the National Register of Historic Homes of America. Known as one of the "twins" or les Jemuelles, the property is located in the historic district of De Tonti Square in downtown Mobile, Alabama. The client wanted an upscale, yet casual, feel to the space. We accomplished this by the use of color, materials, and texture, while still maintaining many of the home's original qualities. The original brick pavers on the floor were refinished and restored, and the original plaster walls received a fresh coat of paint in a soft grey color, which preserved the true architecture of the home. New Crema Marfil tumbled tile laid in a brick patter was used for a backsplash, as well as under-cabinet lighting. 

    Designer Anne Hans-vanMeter and the client choseWellborn Estate Cusom Collection cabinets, which blended well with the historic nature and quality of this home. For the kitchen perimeter and wet bar area, the Melrose door was selected in Pebble Java finish and for the island we chose Maple Espresso. 

    The refrigerator and gas stove were relocated, adding a better flow and function to the space and updated to modern professional appliances of a 36" Gas Viking and a built-in Bosch refrigerator. The island was designed to resemble a large furniture piece with chunky mission legs, and utilizes all drawers facing the sink side for optimal storage. 

    The upper cabinets now go to the 9' ceiling with glass doors, and the crown moulding runs the entire perimeter of the room, similar to the original kitchen. For the wet bar area, a Viking wine chiller was added and glass doors in the upper cabinets to compliment the client's beautiful glassware and accessories. 

    For more information about this kitchen, or to find out how we can create a space like this for you, please give us a call to set up and appointment or stop by our showroom on Hwy 90 in Mobile, Alabama.

  • Repurpose and Reuse Your Old Cabinets

    When it's time to remodel your kitchen, you'll be faced with the decision of what to do with those old cabinets. You could put them on the curb or destroy them during the kitchen demolition. But, not so fast! Regardless of the age, condition or appearance of those old cabinets, we've found some fun and functional ways to recycle what you thought was junk. 

    What do you get when you reuse two base cabinets and a an old door slab?
    A chic little office desk, with storage to boot!

    We love the idea of taking a cabinet, putting feet on it and making a storage bench. While perfect for a kid's room, this would be great for a workbench in the garage or mudroom, too. 


    to see a step-by-step on how to create a bench like this for yourself, check out  http://www.leidibird.com

    With a little ingenuity and some elbow grease, old wall cabinets can be transformed into a gorgeous console table like the one below. 


    for a guide on how to create one of your own, visit http://myfabulesslife.blogspot.com 

    Your cabinets may have been deemed too ugly for display in the kitchen, but they're fine to use in the garage (or inside a closet). You can never have enough storage space in a garage. Use them to stow away tools, sports gear, paint supplies, and gardening equipment neatly. It may even open up some parking space!

    Ok, so now we know what to do with kitchen cabinets. But what about bathroom vanities? Sand it, prime it, paint it and slap some legs on there and you have a Pottery Barn console table at a flea market price (or less!). Have a double vanity headed to the dump? Put it in the garage or utility room and turn it into a Recycling Station by removing the sinks and placing trash cans in the cabinet below the holes

  • Kiss Your TV Stand Goodbye

    We recently designed and installed a custom bookcase with built-in cabinets (below) for a model home in Daphne, Alabama. They look beautiful and create a wonderful focal point in the room.

  • Store It With Built-In Cabinets

    Today's blog post focuses on identifying and utilizing those unused spaces in your kitchen. We've been inspired by This Old House Magazine and found some creative and beautiful ways to... well, store your stuff, with built-in cabinetry.

    An under-the-counter wine rack will keep your bottles within arm's reach. It also keeps the corks moist and is a beautiful way to display your favorite (or most used) vintages. 

    In new home construction and remodels we're seeing a reemergence of mud room storage. After all, your mudroom should be functional! The set-up (above) utilizes a storage bench with a hinged lid and plenty of space beneath for the tips of your kids' muddy boots. Wall hooks give jackets, bags and hats a home. And the top shelf adds even more storage. 

    Kitchen cabinets can contain more wasted space than you think. One of our favorite storage solutions is the pantry kit, above. If you're remodeling or building a new kitchen, the pantry kit is a must-have!

    If you're building or remodeling your home, considering transforming that wasted space under the stairs into a functional and fabulous focal point. And who couldn't use a few more drawers and cabinets?

    What item in your kitchen gets used more frequently than the plate? Plate rack cabinet inserts are a great way to put your plates within arm's reach, while displaying them beautifully. Want to double the functionality? Get some under-cabinet hooks to hang your morning coffee cups!

  • Cut the Kitchen Clutter


    (photo courtesy of http://www.adsere.com)

    The kitchen is one of the busiest and arguably the most commonly used area of a home. Because of this, it's a mecca for junk; food, utensils, cookbooks, car keys, mail. etc. If not handled properly, kitchen clutter can take over. Here are some tips for keeping your cooking, eating, and entertaining space in check.

    1. Plan ahead. If you're building a new home or remodeling your current one, design your kitchen with storage in mind. Make a home for kitchen items in cabinets where they are most accessible. Place your pans and utensils near the stove. Put your plates and glasses near the dishwasher. Thinking ahead will save you frustration down the road. 

    2. Keep your countertops clear. If you don't use an appliance or tool on a regular basis, store it. You don't need your coffee maker, juicer, bagel slicer, food processor and panini press all taking up residence on your much-needed counterspace. 

    3. Wipe that fridge. Smothering your refrigerator with magnets, photos, calendar, keepsakes, and clippings gives your kitchen a cluttered feel, even if your counters are bare. If you must display your kid's art gallery, do it on the side that's less visible. 

    4. Invest in some pretty containers. If your pantry space is limited and you need to leave grains, cookies, flour, whatever out on your counter, at least get a pretty jar to put it in. This can add to the personality and aesthetic of your kitchen. 

    5. Put some bookends on those books. It's become trendy (let's be honest, it's always been trendy) to display often-used or just plain pretty cookbooks in the kitchen. A pair of charming bookends will keep them looking organized and attractive. Find some you love that coordinate with your color scheme and style and they will take your cookbooks from clutter to class!

    6. Beware of glass or open-front cabinets. They are the peak of chic right now, and can look amazing and sophisticated, if done right. But the items within them must be organized and staged properly. You won't be able to stack up your Mardi Gras cups and toss your Tassimo tea packs in there on a whim without detracting from the aesthetic of your kitchen. 

  • May is National Home Remodeling Month

    As Spring approaches, many home owners kick their home improvement projects into overdrive. Do-it-yourself (DIY) projects have seen huge gains in popularity, stemming partly from a flood of popular home improvement TV shows. DIY can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can be time-consuming and frustrating too. Before you dig too deeply into a kitchen or bathroom DIY remodel, ask yourself these questions:

    • Do I have a clear idea of what I want my finished product to look like?
    • Do I really have time to finish this project?
    • Am I aware of everything I'll need to complete this project? Do I have all those things?
    • Am I familiar with building codes and permits?
    • Do I love physical labor?
    • Will you need assistance with this project? Do I have help?
    • Do I comprehend all the safety issues associated with this project?
    • Am I familiar with the structural makeup of my home?
    • Have I considered the hidden costs?
    • Have I considered that a project gone wrong could actually decrease the value of my home?


    For anything more than countertop replacements or faucet change-outs, we suggest that our clients hire a professional home remodeler. It's easy to see a contractor as only added labor cost, but that's a misconception. Professional contractors offer you much more. You get years of experience, the right tools, a network of suppliers and subcontractors, and an in-depth understanding of legal regulations, cost estimating, scheduling, etc. 

    If you're considering a kitchen or bath remodel and want to look into hiring a Certified Remodeler, let us know. We can certainly recommend a great one!

  • Trend Watch: Bi-Color Cabinets

    [image via Houseandhome.com]

    We've been noticing an increase in the use of bi-color cabinets, especially in kitchens. It can create a refreshing and bold look. 

    According to Apartment Therapy, "Choosing a stronger color for bottom cabinets will anchor the room without overpowering it. Doing so also can be a thoughtful and less intimidating way to incorporate color into this function-driven room. In some instances, the colorful bottom cabinets can make appliances stand out less and look even better, while the blend of light upper cabinets with light wall colors makes for a more visually open space, giving the impression of a larger room with higher ceilings." We couldn't agree more!

    What do you think? Would you go for it?

  • Kitchen Remodeling Budget Tips


    There are many ways to make your dreams a reality. You might decide to use personal savings or take out a personal loan. If you are purchasing the house while you are considering remodeling, you may want to incorporate the cost of your project into your mortgage. Whatever your situation, there are financial solutions to make your dream a reality. 

    Here are some things to think about: 

    When considering a budget for your total kitchen project, it's recommended that it not exceed 20% of your home's total value. And should you ever decide to put your home on the market, it's estimated that 85% of any money spent on kitchen remodeling is recouped. 

    An average kitchen costs somewhere between $15,000 and $26,000, including design, products and installation. Of course, you could spend much more or less depending on your selections. 

    It's always important to remember when considering ways to save money to not sacrifice quality for a cheaper route! The worst thing you can say after the completion of a project is "I wish we would have..."

  • Showcase Home for the 2011 Parade of Homes

     

    We were thrilled to work with the Home Builders Association of Metro Mobile on the kitchen and bathrooms of their Showcase Home for the 2011 Parade of Homes. Built by Lynn Nolen, the house is located in Leighton Place neighborhood and is currently on the market (to our knowledge). The kitchen was designed by our own Grace Rockett, collaborating with Johnna Rogers. One of our favorite aspects of the space is the hood, which is one of a kind piece, designed and built specifically for this space. The showcase home is exquisitely designed, built and decorated and open for viewing October 22 and 23, the final weekend of the Mobile Parade of Homes.
