Organization

Let’s organize those cabinets!

Let’s organize those cabinets!   We always tell our clients the most difficult part of a kitchen design isn’t picking the door style or stain color, but designing a kitchen that functions well.  Of course, everyone spends time thinking about and dreaming about what that dream kitchen will look like.  But we also want to spend time talking about how you will use that kitchen and how to keep everything organized and easily accessible.  Here are some ideas we’ve used in [...]

Kitchen Design Trends

Kitchen Design Trends   Are you like me and are hoping this is the year to FINALLY remodel your kitchen?  9 years ago we moved into our home (after fully renovating our previous home) and decided the first thing we would change was the kitchen.  Instead we replaced all the mechanicals, dealt with a flooding issue, planted over 1,000 plants and revamped all the landscaping, and decided to have me work full time in the cabinetry business as well.  So, fast [...]

Kitchens: The Heart of the Home

I suppose it makes sense that I love kitchens. They have a reputation for being the heart of the home, I love to cook, and our family business is cabinet making. We have designed and built some lovely kitchens over the years…I wish ours was one of them! Our kitchen is not a dream kitchen. We went through a period of time when the oven door would simply fall off of the oven. This is never good. We now [...]

Bathroom Roll Out Shelves Maximize Your Storage and Accessibility

Bathrooms for most of us are small spaces that need to store a lot of items for more than one family member.  Many of us have more stuff to store than we have space to store it!  Everyone dreams of new cabinets built around their storage needs and their dream design.  Sometimes new cabinetry isn"t an option. So we spend lots of money on containers and baskets, maybe even buy an off the shelf roll out bin hoping that [...]

Entryway Organization

  The area of your home that serves as the main entry likely gets abused and overlooked. However, it is also an area that you use a lot.  Wouldn’t it be nice if it functioned well and looked nice too? It is possible!   Of course we would be happy to build you custom cabinets to maximize the space and conceal your clutter, but we also know that projects like that don’t always happen overnight. Here are some quick solutions to common [...]

Six Pre Winter Cleaning Chores

  Six Pre-Winter Chores Spring cleaning gets a lot of attention, but I am far more motivated to do a deep autumn cleaning. Knowing that we are about to spend a lot of time in our home encourages me to make it the best it can be. There are countless things one can do around the house, the list never ends…but here are a few suggestions for things to get done before the snow flies and the temperature dips. Clean the exterior [...]

Universal Design for Kitchens

We were asked to participate in the Minnesota State Fair this year and are really excited about what we get to do! We will be designing and building the kitchen for the Wiser Living Idea House. Wiser Living is an award-winning exhibit presented by the Minnesota State Fair in partnership with Aging Services of Minnesota http://www.agingservicesmn.org/ and Older But Wiser Living http://olderbutwiserliving.com/wiser-living-exhibit/. The number of people trying to age in place has never been greater. Our kitchen will focus on accessibility [...]

Garage Custom Cabinetry

Garage Cabinetry Customized To Your Needs

Custom garage cabinetry? You bet! We built this kitchen for a client who has an amazing man cave in the Garage Solution Condominium development. It was a lot of fun to build a kitchen in a space typically used for cars and storage. We share this not expecting everyone to install a kitchen in their garage, but rather to point out two things. First, the beauty of having things custom made for your needs. Since everything we do pokies [...]

Get Organized In The New Year!

This is the time of year you can"t help but take a few moments to look back at the year"s events. This year, like most, seemed to fly by. We have had a very busy year and the milestone event for our business has been moving into our new showroom. The space is still a work-in-progress, but it is certainly feeling more like home all the time. Perhaps at no other time of year is our desire to change habits, [...]
