A Platform Bed and Built-in Night Stand Transform a Master Bedroom

We recently had an interesting request from a client that lives in a condo unit in downtown Minneapolis. They wanted to have built-in nightstands and upper cabinets to surround their bed as well as a new platform bed with hidden storage underneath it. We also added lots of LED lighting to the unit to make night time reading easier for them.

The client chose a Hard Rock Maple finish to match the cabinets in the rest of the condo. We made the side nightstands deeper to give enough space for their alarm clocks, phone chargers, and photos. The platform bed has 6 push to open drawers as well as a hidden compartment at the foot of the bed. An EcoResin panel, made with thatch fiber, was used to provide the finishing touch to bring the whole project together.

A New Closet For Him Makes Space for Both in Wayzata

When a couple moved into a new home in Wayzata ran into one big problem. The master closet in the bedroom wouldn’t be big enough to fit both of their wardrobes in it. Luckily there was a guest room in the basement that wasn’t being used for anything and was the perfect candidate for a closet makeover. It was big enough to fit an  island and had ceiling tall enough to accommodate double hanging his extra tall shirts and pants. He also had lots of ties, belts, and watches that needed to be organized. Continue reading

6 Questions to Consider when Planning a Kitchen Pantry

1. Which way will the door open?

Custom Closet in Orono, MN

When in the planning stages its extremely important to think about accessibility and how you will enter your pantry. Sliding or barn doors will allow the most amount of space both inside and outside the pantry. Having an outward opening door will give the most amount space for shelves in the pantry but you’ll have to be sure you have enough clearance for the door to open. If you opt for an inward opening door just be mindful that you will lose some space inside the pantry to give the door enough clearance. Continue reading

Case Study: Garage Makeover in Minnetonka

Garages have become the catch-all storage place for the home. When something doesn’t have a place inside the home then it usually finds it’s way into the garage. Everything from tools and sports equipment, to memorabilia and off season clothes gets stored in the garage. With so much being stored in the garage its easy to become overwhelmed if you don’t have a sufficient storage solutions  for everything. A family in Minnetonka decided enough was enough and set out to remodel their entire garage. They contacted us to design, build, and install all new garage cabinets as well as Garage Floor Coating of Minnesota to have their concrete floor resurfaced and refinished. They also had new sheet rock put in to give the garage a more finished look. Continue reading

Case Study: Penthouse Closet in Bloomington Rises to the Occasion

What could be better than having gorgeous mile long views of the Minnesota Valley Wildlife Refuge? Why having a fully decked-out and organized closets to go along with it. When our clients asked us to design the closets for their gorgeous penthouse in Bloomington, they only had one stipulation. Make the closets as clean and beautiful as the view is. What would have normally been the master closet wasn’t big enough for both of their clothes, so they decided to use an extra room on the second floor as a second master closet for his clothes. The view from this second master closet is breath taking and we can imagine how incredible it must be to get changed every morning with a view like that. Continue reading
