HOW WOULD THIS LOOK IN YOUR HOUSE?
GALLEY KITCHENS: Ideas for navigating the straight and narrow – July 2011 Newsletter
Galley kitchens. Seattle is full of them. It’s a good thing there are plenty of options available for operating in straight spaces.
Important things to consider when designing a galley kitchen are aisle space, light and storage. It’s also important to make all points of the work triangle easily accessible.
At Vision Woodworks, we have over 12 years experience with Seattle kitchens. Let us take a look at what you have, your wants and space challenges. We’ll help you create a kitchen designed around you, giving you the best in functionality with the style you require.
Take a peak at how these kitchens achieved optimum efficiency and maximum storage.

PICTURES OF THE WINNING PROJECT!
Pictures of the project that won a 2011 REX award from the Master Builder’s Association….
This bathroom was previously an empty studded space, and before that an aqua-colored honey bucket. Stained Sapele vertical grain cabinetry and a concrete countertop and backsplash make this small space stunning. Great thought was put into the details of this project. Each square on the side panels were individually cut and placed.Maximizing space, the side panels are hidden medicine cabinets, the doors of which pop out when pressed. Complementing the grain of the wood, a glass vessel sink with “fire” was chosen. The owner was thrilled that this small space could be so functional and yet so inexpensive

DESKS AND HOME OFFICES – June 2011 Newsletter
We recently posted the above picture on our facebook page, and we got lots of feedback about it. Some talked about how much they loved the style, and others were surprised that we could make something that wasn’t a technical “cabinet”. So let us assure you, if it can be made with wood, we can make it.
So let’s talk about desks—and more broadly, home offices. In this economy, many people have moved their offices into their homes. Great idea! How’s your organization? The same rules apply in a home office as in a work office. You need a proper area to work and organize your material. Maybe you need a modest desk, like the one above. Or maybe you need a desk that takes up most of a wall, and includes nooks for organizational baskets, notebooks, a vinyl corkboard, file cabinets and a pop-up computer monitor. Or maybe you need something in between.
We’re great at helping you plan your space, and we’re also great at value engineering. This is where custom shines (hint: you won’t find
desks like this at office or big-box stores). Let us help you design a home office that will not only add value to your home, but will help your business run smoother as well.
Or perhaps you do work in an office and need a new desk that will help to make that “first impression” when people walk in. How about something like this (below):
