Commercial buildings embracing good design





Here are some photographs from my Builder friend, Bob Johnson, for his work with our cabinetry designs for a commercial building in Livonia.

We, at Midwest, have been doing a lot of commercial work using our beautiful wood cabinetry in place of the old laminate cabinets that were seen so much of in the 1980's.

Much more reminiscent of home cabinetry, which lends to a warmer working environment.


What you see here is our "Medallion Cabinetry" in Cherry Brookhill-Burgundy stain

This is purely for humor's sake!

I thought many of my designs appeal to women..a builder friend of mine shared this hilarious clip with me! To all my male clientele..enjoy! :)

Lowly storage reaches new heights!

Did you know that the average woman's height in the United States is 5 feet 3.8 inches? And for an adult male it is 5 feet 9.2 inches?

That being said, let's take a look at the way typical storage in a kitchen usually works.

Where do you reach for the majority of your items such as glasses, dishes, pots, pans, spices? Usually up high in your upper cabinetry, correct?

Take a peek at some low storage that I design with, that could leave your step ladder in your closet for good!
Keeping dishes in large heavy duty drawers that can support up to 100 lbs, can make for an easier lift for many vertically challenged clients. No more tippie toes!

This pantry storage is great for giving children their 'own' section of the kitchen, where they can retrieve snacks or help out during prep, by keeping the organization at their level.
