In our 30+ years, we have had the pleasure to develop creative design solutions for every part of the home. From kitchens to bathrooms to garages, our architects and designers have crafted inspired fixes to everyday issues. Here are some of our favorites from recent projects.
Clever Cutting Board Drawer
Our client in Great Falls wanted to expand the utility of the drawer over the trash can so it could be used for more than just storage. A cutting board with a hole was added to discard the waste right into the can. This board pops out for easy cleaning, then can be returned to the drawer for convenient storage.
Reaching New Heights
In two of our recent projects, the kitchen design included floor to ceiling cabinetry. While this gave our clients more storage for the items they use once or twice a year, how were they going to reach it? In the kitchen renovation in Chevy Chase, a custom ladder was designed to resemble those found in libraries. It easily rolls from one spot to the next, stores flush at the end of the cabinet and adds extra character to this beautiful kitchen. The solution for a kitchen remodel in McLean was a shallow cabinet so a step ladder could be safely stored away from everyday view.
Multipurpose Full-Length Mirror
Do you hate the bulky look of a traditional medicine cabinet and its limited storage? In this Chevy Chase whole-house remodel, we created a custom nook to mount a full-length medicine cabinet within. It now provides much needed storage in one of the home’s smaller bathrooms and doubles as a convenient full-length mirror.
Hair Appliance Organizer
Wires and cords can makes getting ready in your bathroom chaotic. In this Great Falls bathroom remodel, we included a heat-resistant drawer organizer for the homeowner’s hair tools. Hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners and hairbrushes now have a home that keeps the cord craziness off the bathroom counter. The best part is appliances can be stowed away while still warm after use, so no more excuses!
Raised Garage Storage
Get the clutter off the ground with electric car and toy lifts. This client’s garage was overflowing with toys and cars, both adult and child size. We installed car lifts to keep the spare full-sized cars off the ground, protecting them from accidental bumps and scratches, and a storage basket to house toys and equipment that aren’t accessed every day.
Our mission is to help families improve their lives at home, and practical solutions like these are just a few of the arrows in our quiver. We would welcome the opportunity to help your family with creative solutions, quality craftsmanship and heroic customer service that will make your home function better for you!
