The creation of this fantastic cutting board drawer that sits atop a second bag-lined drawer for catching food scraps. makes it easy for slicing & dicing. Don't you think its the perfect way to maximize the space while still keeping it functional?

Who doesn’t love coffee? The best thing to have is a customized coffee station for yourself in 2018! Glass shelves keep a tiny space organized and looking great. With shelves, you have all the room you need to store your belongings without any wasted space. The gray color looks sharp, and there’s a consistent silver and white theme throughout this coffee station idea. Note that the set of cups are arranged in way that allows you to decide just how much coffee you feel like drinking. Steal the idea of placing the microwave in the same area which allows you to easily warm up the milk to add to your coffee! What are your thoughts?

Vertical dividers are super useful for many different kitchen objects. Our clients find it very useful & you should try it too.

Cutting boards, cookie sheets, muffin tins, platters, baking pans, pie dishes, large lids and even cooling racks.

These vertical dividers are often placed in the upper portion of tall cabinetry, such as an oven cabinet, pantry or deep refrigerator upper. They can also be used in narrow base cabinets from 9-12" that may not make sense to place a drawer stack.

Vertical dividers are another cabinet feature you will love!

We all use some spices in our kitchens. Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic seasoning, the list goes on. We accumulate spices almost every time we try a new recipe.

Organizing spices in a wall cabinet can be tricky. When small spice bottles are stocked together on a shelf, it can be difficult to see what you have without removing the entire shelf.So we recommend Spice Pull out as “must -haves” for 2018.
Our absolute favorite spice units have tiered shelves. Tiered shelves allow spices to be displayed so you can view everything you have.
One 12" spice pullout next to your cooking surface is ideal. Some people who have a ton of spices may even opt for 2 on either side for a more symmetrical look.

Did I mention drawers are easy? One v. two motions in a kitchen can do wonders for your speed cooking routine. Drawer operation takes one easy pull versus a door/ roll-out arrangement which takes two (open doors, then pull the roll-out). This easy operation is why so many people fall in love with drawers.
Drawers have clean lines. I don't care what kind of kitchen you are planning. Traditional, farmhouse, rustic, transitional or contemporary. Drawers keep clean, horizontal lines that are very attractive. A series of three-drawer base cabinets in a kitchen layout just makes sense. The best part is you can just let us know what size drawer you need. What are the things that you want to put away in drawers but they won’t just fit? Please share in the comments box below.

Appliance garage- “must have” in your kitchen for 2018. Don’t you like to hide your clutter in one simple step? Appliance garage does it for you in one second leaving your kitchen look neat & clean, for example your toaster & coffee machine ! Which appliance do you use everyday but need to hide?

Custom drawers - “ must haves” for 2018. Drawers are ergonomic. They come out to you, the user. No squatting or bending down to see what you've got. Just pull the drawer out and look down. As we age, our backs become more sensitive to lifting, so drawers are wonderful for folks who have trouble lifting or reaching up into upper cabinetry.
Drawers are flexible. They can hold almost anything in your kitchen. I love using a three drawer stack; these typically have a smaller top drawer with 2 larger drawers below. Top drawers are usually for utensils, silverware and smaller items. The larger drawers, however, can be used for a multitude of kitchen items; pots and pans, lids, dishes (can use a peg system), plastic wear, baking/ cookie sheets, small appliances or food.

Kitchen “must-haves” for 2018: Magic corner & Lazy Susan . We have made many of our client’s life easier by installing Leman’s Magic corner -II. The corner cabinet’s space is utilized efficiently & its easier to store things too. Lazy Susan - a corner unit that turns a 90-degree angle on both sides. Typically seen in 36" sizes. These will have 2 carousels with or without a center supporting pole (better without a pole). They spin 360 degrees and can fit lots of kitchen stuff. If you want to know more how these work you may please check Richeliue’s website. Which one would you like to have in your next renovation?

In so many ways the Christmas Season is such a wonderful time of the year; especially when you receive a letter like this. This family was a delight to work with and couldn’t have delivered a more thoughtful and more appreciated gift in the form of this message!

Paul and Pinnacle team,

We are all looking forward to spending Christmas in our new home and are enjoying everything about it.
I was just thinking back on a year ago when it was a remediated shell with some new foundations poured compared to the finished project which has immediately become home.
While we still aren’t fully unpacked and my garage is still a mess we are definitely settled in and enjoying the space.
Thanks to you all for such a great building experience and for all the efforts you put in.
All the best wishes of the season to you and your families, Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.

Signed,
Happy in Brentwood!

From all of us at Pinnacle; we couldn't be more thrilled that this home is working so well for this family. One can only imagine how wonderfully this newly renovated home provided all the unique spaces for great family memories; significantly larger front foyer, kitchen/dining addition for large family gatherings, family-sized mudroom, and a steam shower in the ensuite to unwind after each day! :-) See this family's entire home makeover in our website.

We design custom drawers for your corner. Obvious to some people but not obvious to others--which is why I'm featuring it here--is the corner wall cabinet. It is a staple of good kitchen remodeling practice and it goes a long ways toward solving blind corner problems.

You can still couple these types of cabinets with a classic, round lazy susan to increase access.

But one notable pitfall of these cabinets is that their doors are smaller than the interior space.

Kitchen must-haves for 2018:
Corner kitchen cabinets are the loneliest, darkest, and most remote space in your kitchen.

It's not where you find the much-used, much-appreciated coffee cups or china. Rather, it's where you find castaway items from decades ago.

It's the dreaded blind cabinet corner. It's found in both kitchens or bathrooms--anywhere with cabinets--but mostly in kitchens because that's where you'll find cabinets that meet at corners.

Christmas is all about spending time with family & friends. One easy option is baking Christmas cookies that match the decorations! It's easy to do and it's something everyone will appreciate.

This is the same kitchen after renovation where we tried create a fusion of traditional style & modern facilities. What do you think you’ll add to your kitchen if you renovate?

Pinnacle Renovations (@pinnaclerenovations)

Throw back to one of our previous project where we modernized the kitchen along with renovation other parts of the house.
As they were starting a family our main criteria was to create kid-friendly spaces for them. This image shows the kitchen

The best winter centerpieces are filled with a variety of natural elements, not just flowers. Here, is a gorgeous centerpiece focused on a silvery urn filled with a shed deer antler, small pine cones, a few clippings of greenery, and a couple of sprigs of winter-blooming flowers. Though simple in design, the result is spectacular. If you are up for a little burst of color simply use your vase to show off those gorgeous Poinsettias! Which is your favourite centre piece among these two?

No need for frosty feet when you spread your winter floor with a sheepskin rug as thick, as luxurious, as warm as the one shown in this living room .Add a few sweater-inspired throw pillows and fur blankets, and your space is transformed into winter-cozy and warm. Light up a few scented candles for the perfect ambience !

Who says black can't be festive? This moody and romantic Christmas setting is the perfect way to stage a romantic holiday date for two. Pair dark purple or black plates with a few candles and some evergreen garland, and you'll have a table even the Grinch will love. What do you think?
