Featured on Houzz: 7 Kitchen Flooring Materials to Boost Your Cooking Comfort

The Novak Residence kitchen has been featured again on Houzz, in an article called "7 Kitchen Flooring Materials to Boost Your Cooking Comfort".  The Flexco rubber floor is a big hit with the owners, who are avid cooks.  They preferred a tough, yet soft surface like rubber over the idea of continuing the wood flooring, since they wanted the kitchen to withstand spills, stains, and drops, yet still be comfortable for their no-shoes barefoot lifestyle with a young child underfoot. 

Other flooring materials featured in the article include favorites we have used in kitchens and throughout the house: cork, bamboo, and wood.

We were just featured in an article called "Turn Wasted Space into Functional Storage", where they use our Neilson Street Residence project as one solution for using the underutilized space under the stairs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other examples in the article were also inspiring, such as a play house, pull-out pantry, and bookshelves.  It's always nice to take advantage of unused spaces, and make something special that is unique to the home.

The Marin Avenue Residence was featured in an article called "Houzz Tour: Finding the Flow in Berkeley".  We enjoyed answering some detailed questions about the project's unique qualities, as well as our design process.  The article covers a lot of ground, and we appreciate the detailed tour of one of our favorite projects.  We loved working with the owners and continue our collaboration through their business, Bay Reach Homes.
