  • 2014 HBA of Metro Mobile Parade of Homes Showcase Kitchen

     

       

    We are always amazed at what can be accomplished in a short amount of time when you have the right people with the best products, awesome attitudes and a goal of absolute perfection. That's what Paul and Mellanie Hildesheim accomplished in their 2014 HBA of Metro Mobile Parade of Homes Showcase House, located in the Alabaster neighborhood of West Mobile. We are honored to have been able to play a small part in their masterpiece. 

    Coast Design Kitchen & Bath's very own {super talented!} Dwain Arterburn worked with the builders to design their dream kitchen, with cabinets that are as beautifully flawless as they are functional, and an island big enough for entertaining and casual dining. We love Gallery Homes' choice of dark floors and light counter tops with pendant lighting. 

    The Mobile, Alabama 2014 Parade of Homes kicks off on October 16 for a Preview Party and private viewing of the Showcase House. All of the houses on Parade open to the public on October 18 and will remain open the following weekend.


  • 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.

  • 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!

  • HBA Event at Showroom a Success

  • 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.

  • Before and After Story


  • 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. 

  • 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. 


  • Wellborn Cabinets in an All American Cottage

    Wellborn Cabinets, has partnered with Southern Living and This Old House to supply the cabinets for the All American Cottage, seen below. According to Wellborn's website, the home is "located in the quintessential southern community of Verdae in Greenville, South Carolina, and will be a stunning showcase and testimony to the ingenuity and quality craftsmanship of products made in the U.S.A. Wellborn Cabinet, Inc is the supplier of all cabinetry featured in The All American Cottage. The building process of the home has begun and the cabinetry made in Ashland, Alabama is soon to be completed and delivered to the home."

    We are proud to work with Wellborn and love what they did in the All American Cottage. Stop by our showroom in Mobile, Alabama or make an appointment to discuss how we can create a kitchen like this in your home!

  • 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. 

    Built-in cabinets can be the perfect alternative to the tradition entertainment center. Take a look at some of the inspiration we've found.

  • 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!

  • 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..."
