We're Back!

Hello everyone! It certainly has been a while since we last blogged with you. What's been going on? We have been so busy that we would like to take this opportunity to show you some of our work! Please tell us what you think.

This is photo shows the built-ins next to the mantel shelf that we designed, built & installed for one of our customers. If you notice, the doors on the built-in are see through - that's because they are actually crates for the dogs! We are in love - how about you?

Below is a photo of a kitchen design that we worked with KD Interiors to bring to life. 

I'm in love with this closet! This was a custom closet design for a customer in Wake Forest. I'm pretty sure I could live in there!

Take a look at this craftsman-style built-in that we recently completed for one of our customers. 

If you are interested in a free, no-hassle estimate, please give us a call at 919-554-3707. We would love to hear what you think! Please comment or email us with questions or comments!

Innovative Built-In Ideas

We know everyone has seen built-in bookcases, entertainment centers and mudrooms. So here is a series of innovative built-ins that we thought were very creative and useful. These tend to leave you thinking...

"Why didn't I think of that?!"

 Why just have recessed panels when you can use them to hide your books! This is just like in the movies when people reveal the hidden rooms by pulling a book, only you reveal the book by pulling the wall! This is great because it hides the clutter, and you can double the use for the space by hanging photos or dry-erase boards on the panels!

 This picture has been circling the internet for some time now, but no matter how many times we see it, I think I can speak for everyone when I say - I WANT THIS IN MY HOUSE! What a great use of space!

I love this one! If there isn't enough room for a cabinet, or cabinets aren't going with your style in a small bathroom, try recessed cabinets! It's great because the room is there behind the sink (thanks to plumbing) and it adds more space to your room! Plus, those nosey friends and family members will struggle to find what you're "hiding".

 Ok, I need this one. How great would it be to climb into the bathtub and have everything you need at your fingertips, and get out without leaving a mess? I don't like clutter in the corners, and with this design, you can hide all the shampoo and body wash bottles when you're done. Easy-peasy.

My laundry room is tiny and very difficult to organize. This is a terrific idea! Utilizing the doors, this person added built-ins on the doors and a shelf above the washer and dryer to come up with the most space-saving and ingenious design that is practical for any house!

I want this in my house! Save space by installing this cutting board inside one of your cabinets - now you can pull it out when you need it, and store it when you don't. Or, just use it for added counter space when you're busy in the kitchen!

Here's another ingenious idea for a staircase. No more wasted space under the stairs. This guy actually has a movable island that he uses as a wet bar. This would also be a great idea for a craft island - pull it out when you're working, and slide it away when you're done!
