Cut Back On Your Cutlery

Does anyone really buy these? The manufacturer actually has the audacity to call this a “classic” knife set…and why wouldn’t they? After all, who could forget grandma’s old-world mastery of the 6.5-inch full tang panini knife? Just as $100 designer yoga pants won’t help you master the Warrior II pose, an extravagant cutlery set won’t make you a better chef. Virtually any home chef would be better off sticking with the three…

There was a variety of granite alternatives on display at the EuroCucina 2014 trade show this year in Milan, Italy, ranging from stainless steel to tempered glass, from ceramic to wood.  If you’re trying to steer clear of traditional countertop selections like granite, marble, quartz, or synthetic solid surfaces, the number of stylish alternatives continues to grow.

Legends Bay: A Lookback

Sarasota Cabinetry Legends Bay: A Lookback Several years ago we were selected to supply cabinetry for Gibraltar Homes at Legends Bay. This was a Ruben-Holland development at the IMG Academies and Golf and Country Club in Southwest Bradenton. Gibraltar’s two Model Villas were started with two large Waterfront Homes following after. Free standing Villas are approximately 2,500 square feet for a one-story and the two story units are about 3,200 square feet. The two Waterfront Model Homes were built to 5,500 and 6,400 square feet respectively. We were very excited about being part of this project.

2005 NKBA DESIGN COMPETITION

Sarasota kitchen 2005 NKBA DESIGN COMPETITION LARGE KITCHEN The design challenges from a layout point of view were working within the existing footprint and using the existing hood and island and stainless steel counter top. The sinks, hood and cooktop placement were firmly established so my approach was to get the desk area out of the middle of the kitchen and move the refrigerator closer to the sinks. By switching these two areas, the desk is now adjacent to the entry from the garage and allows for a message area as you enter the house. The addition of some floating…
