This mudroom had to be functional for cold Wisconsin winters. The boot bench and cubbies normally house giant baskets filled with winter boots and mittens. The coat hooks often overflow with coats for any kind of weather. The open and easy-to-get-to storage solution allows for all the gear to dry after they’ve been in the wind, rain, and snow. The durable bead board finish protects against hard use and also adds another architectural element to the design. The shaker cabinets provide great storage solutions for all the mail, chargers and random paper supplies. The laundry room design incorporates space for sorting the laundry and organizing the detergents. Even when small space planning you can still hide things like built-in ironing boards in the wall, storage for cleaning supplies, and extra towels and rags in upper wall cabinets. The porcelain tile floor is a work horse in this functional laundry and mud room design.

Laundry rooms can be both functional and beautiful. Does a lovely laundry room get the clothes washed and folded faster? You will never know unless you let us help you design one into your home! This laundry room features marble tops from the remnant yard to save money. Building in the washer and dryer allows for a counter to be installed over the top to fold clothes. There is open space below the folding top on the opposite wall to hold the laundry baskets. The ironing board is built into the pantry cabinets that also hold the family linens.

This dining room addition is directly off this homes newly renovated kitchen. Its charm is in the details. The coffered ceiling makes the small room feel much larger. The built-in cherry cabinets on either side of the opening to the powder room can be used as a bar or butlers pantry. The leaded glass in the doors and simplicity in the backsplash make these spaces feel like built-in furniture. The large drawers offer plenty of storage so that the only furniture taking up floor space is the table. The giant windows make you feel almost like you are dining outside. The lighting is all on dimmers to control the mood. Bar Cabinets: Mouser F/O Winchester Cherry Amaretto Wood Tops: Mouser Cherry Amaretto Under Counter Refrigeration: Sub-Zero 24″ Wine Unit
When you talk about Kitchen and Bath designers in St. Louis it seems like we should have a much longer job title. We should be Kitchen, Bath, Bar, Mud Room, Pantry, Closet, Office, Butlers Pantry, Basement and Built In Cabinetry Designers! Wow, that would be hard to put on a card, so we have condensed it to Kitchen, Bath and Wherever space designers here at Karr Bick. This beautiful bar falls in the category of wherever. We had a rather small space to work with, and the goal was to design a fun walk behind bar that could sit in the family room/kitchen space and not seem out of place. The cabinet color is vintage gray/blue and different from the adjoining kitchen yet feels right at home as its next door neighbor. The curved glass mullions are dressy enough to be the transition to the formal dining room. The copper trough bar sink adds the right amount of conversation and fun. To fit in the ice maker and wine refrigerator we utilized the wall across from the bar almost making the bar a place you pass through to get to the dinning room. The long counter creates a place to […]
Your pantry can be both practical and beautiful. When skillfully used, kitchen cabinets can be arranged into artfully efficient work spaces. We love the challenges these small spaces have to offer. Do your homework, think out your storage needs, and prepare for growth when working through the design. Don’t forget the lighting and electrical outlets! The lights will enhance the look but also help with the adaptability and competency of the pantry.
