We are one step closer to completion with the installation of semi-custom cabinets! The homeowner chose the timeless white shaker door which will really compliment all the other selections.
When it comes to a kitchen renovation, extra storage is almost always on the homeowner’s wish list. Sometimes this can be quite easy, other times it requires more creative thinking to make it work in a small space. Check out some of these great kitchen storage options, you just might find some ideas for your wish list!
Most people do not like to keep appliances on their counters but to lift something heavy, like this kitchen aid mixer, in and out of a cabinet can be a pain. This base cabinet with mixer shelf allows for easy use of an appliance without the hassle.
Cabinets with pullouts also allow for organized storage especially when a cabinet is serving as a pantry. Items can easily be lost in the back of a cabinet but the deep pullouts ensure you can easily see all of the contents.
Finally, we have a charging station cabinet. This is a newer request by homeowners since many of us have multiple gadgets. This particular homeowner wanted a place to keep cords and outlets hidden and off the counter. This cabinet not only offers two outlet options, but one of the outlets also contains a USB port. Genius!
There are still so many more kitchen storage options to share, so make sure you check out next month’s post where we will feature a few more storage ideas. If you are interested in updating your kitchen, we would love the opportunity to work with you!
This kitchen remodel is taking shape! Gone is the wall that separated the kitchen and dining room and the large open space is exactly what the homeowner was looking for. With the change of the door to a new window and the sink going underneath, whoever is in-charge of dishes will have a great view of the backyard.
Day 1 of this fabulous kitchen renovation is a messy one! The demo moves quickly so we can begin to make changes to the layout. The dated cabinets and appliances are already gone and next to go is the wall between the kitchen and dining room.
We’re excited to share with you an amazing kitchen remodel! The homeowner came to us with this wish-list: open concept, casual seating space, better layout, more storage & prep space, more modern color scheme and materials.
The most dramatic change in this renovation will be the removal of the wall that separates the dining room & kitchen, it will more than double the kitchen area & allow for the open concept at the top of the homeowners wish-list.
Small dining area will be made apart of the modern kitchen and expand the footprint. The homeowner won’t lose casual seating but you’ll have to check back next week to see renders of the new kitchen!
As we finish up our video blog series for the family room addition we thought we would share some of the few takes with our Design Consultant Alex Van Nuys. Enjoy the bloopers!
The family room addition is finished and here’s your first look at the completed space!
Here’s a look at the finished outdoor space of our family room addition. The homeowners love the finished product and can’t wait to enjoy the patio. We are approaching the end of the project and next time you’ll get a full tour of the finished inside!
What a transformation! The new beautiful blue stone patio and walkways have replaced the worn down brick. Enlarging the patio will allow for a large, more comfortable entertaining space.
Alex Van Nuys Selected as 2015 30 Under 30 Award Recipient by The National Kitchen & Bath Association
NKBA 30 Under 30 to be featured at KBIS next January in Las Vegas.
RICHMOND,VA, OCTOBER 1, 2014 — Alex Van Nuys has been selected as one of the 30 Under 30 recipients by The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) for the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show 2015 (KBIS®), to be held January 20-22 in Las Vegas.
“We are excited to present our 30 Under 30 young professionals at KBIS 2015 for the third year in a row,” says Nancy Barnes, NKBA Director of Learning. “The program launch in 2013 was a huge success with the group, which included enthusiastic entrepreneurs, forward-thinking CEOs, and cutting-edge designers who are all still in their 20s.”
The goal of the NKBA 30 Under 30 Program is to acknowledge outstanding young professionals, while helping these individuals to immerse and apply themselves to new opportunities for growth and development in support of the industry.
Alex holds a Bachelor’s degree in Apparel, Housing and Resource Management with a focus in Kitchen and Bath design from the NKBA-Accredited Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). In her senior year she placed in the top 10 national student GE Charette competition. After graduating in 2011, Alex worked in northern Virginia for a kitchen design company. In spring of 2013 she moved to Richmond, VA and became our design consultant.
Alex now works on a variety of projects including kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor living spaces, and additions. Taking a customer’s house and turning it into their dream home is Alex’s favorite part of the job. She does this by combining the latest trends with the customers’ personal style, making sure they’ll enjoy the space for years to come. She believes educating potential customers is critical to being successful and does so by writing e-newsletter articles, presenting at seminars, and sharing project video updates on the company’s blog.
“It is an honor to be recognized with the other recipients. I look forward to collaborating with them and learning as much as I can at KBIS in January,” says Alex.
On Wednesday, January 21, 2015, the group of 30 young professionals will present their findings on the Las Vegas show floor in a presentation for KBIS 2015 show attendees. They will share the results of their explorations and answer questions from the audience.

The enlarged opening between the kitchen and dining room was a last minute change by the homeowners. This change allows for a more open concept feel as well as lets in more light to the kitchen. The finishing details have begun and everyone involved is really excited to see the project near completion!
