  • 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. 

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
