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.

So we spend lots of money on containers and baskets, maybe even buy an off the shelf roll out bin hoping that [...]

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, [...]
