Of all the rooms in a house, the most detailed and complex to design is the kitchen. It is also arguably the most important room in a house. Most of us will, at some point in our lives, want to remodel, design, or upgrade a kitchen. Sometimes, that requires the help of a trained interior designer. Other times, the homeowner is completely capable of handling that job themself. With that in mind, I thought this DIYer’s guide on how to design your own kitchen might come in handy. At the very least, it should provide a good place to start and help you to determine if you will require assistance.

However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!

When people come to my house for the first time, they often inquire about my custom area under my stairways. Typically, they love the idea of having something in that wasted space, and they want to know how to do it. Well, I find that to be a loaded question most of the time. Because every stairway presents its own potential for problems, one answer doesn’t always fit all. However, I can show you how to add storage under stairways even when you have a few obstacles to deal with.
