Everyday more and more of our dealers are discovering Houzz and how easy it is to share their projects with the world. We enjoy seeing our cabinetry being used in such beautiful spaces and in ways we didn’t even consider – that’s the beauty of being a designer – So enjoy our Latest Houzz Call – You Rock Synergy Design & Construction!
For the renovated kitchen and family room, the clients wanted a rustic contemporary style, mixing vintage inspired materials with classic clean lines — as a result, we created a “Modern-day Farmhouse” look for them. The remodeled space includes new hardwood flooring, cabinetry, appliances, granite countertops, tile backsplash, plumbing and lighting fixtures, custom built-ins, and custom ceiling details. We removed the dividing half-walls between the kitchen and family room to open up the spaces and allow for a larger island with seating in the new layout.
Denise Butchko shows us that Custom Closets and Walk In closets don’t have to be big to be effective. Well designed closets incorporate the needs and lifestyle of the owner with the space and materials.

Designing an island of your dreams has never been easier. Cabinets + Imagination = Island of your Dreams.
Islands can be Permanent or Mobile
They can be Big or Small
You can create Workspaces or Display Spaces
Store, Prep, Cook, Clean and Eat – Work and Play – the place where it all happens! The place where your personality comes to life.
Store: The island is an ideal area to store utensils, spices, cookbooks and anything else that you might need in that part of your kitchen, also a great way to showcase your favorite items.
Prep: A great spot to get food ready for the next step – cooking!
Cook: It’s time to fire up the grill…. or simply turn on the microwave. Your island can become your stage to show off your cooking skills.
Eat: A great spot to pull a chair to enjoy a meal or just enjoy a conversation. The island truly can become the heart of the kitchen.
I truly believe that islands in the kitchen are the norm – if you’ve got the space you might just need an island. I love islands a lot – Why?
Islands are the new kitchen tables of our generation!
Work, Eat, Cook, Play everything happens there and they are available in different heights, colors, shapes, sizes, storage options, etc….. You can design an island to meet the needs of your family – whatever they may be.
You can design your island your way and it’s the best place to add that “little bit of punch” that you want for your kitchen without shocking the family too much! It’s your personality on display!
We gather photos on Houzz daily to find the Wellborn Cabinet creations by you – creative designs for your clients, beautiful work that we would love to share. (We’ve also thrown in a few of our designs as well.) Enjoy.

One of the most challenging tasks when planning a kitchen or bath is deciding your actual style. With all the different media outlets – online, print and television such as (Houzz, Pinterest, Southern Living, Coastal Living, HGTV, DIY, etc.) you can quickly become confused about what you truly want for your home.
In the past a physical scrapbook or project notebook was the way you could share with your designer, builder or contractor your ideas to help them understand your wants and needs – while this practice is still the norm – the majority of people have moved their project notebooks online in some format to be shared digitally to all involved in your project.
So let’s explore some of the tools that you can use to collect, display and share your style!
1. We offer My Scrapbook on our website – The scrapbook allows you to keep product ideas in a central location, and organize your thoughts, and send them on to your Wellborn Cabinet Dealer.
2. The Inspire App is a great way to quickly and simply organize your style and bring in your own elements then share with your Wellborn Dealer or Designer.
3. Pinterest Need I say more! If you have never seen or used Pinterest beware it can be habit-forming….. from food to fitness….. design to diet …… it has everything. It is an excellent tool to help you learn your style and categorize your design needs and wants.
4. Houzz is currently the #1 platform for all things residential; new construction, remodeling and decorating – interior and exterior of the home. A great tool to organize your style & also a great place to find the professionals to make your dreams come to life!
So there’s just a few of the awesome online tools you can use to start your Kitchen & Bath Planning today!
