It’s a reoccurring theme when clients take over their new spaces, a new start, new menus, new meal plans, new habits. Today we’re sharing a few of our favorite ways to stay on the ball while prioritizing health and wellness in your new space.

Meal Prep and Plan Ahead
Find a day of the week to get organized, look ahead at your family’s calendar and which nights a quick and easy meal will be in order, and which nights you can spend more time on a new or favorite recipe.
Research Your New Appliances
You should take time when selecting your new appliances, visit a showroom, ask questions, read the online reviews and get to know your new products. Right behind custom cabinets, your appliances will be the largest investment and can help make your weekly meal times a breeze with so many newly added technologies.
Decorative Storage in Your Kitchen
Clients have loved the ease of displaying favorite quickbooks, with easy access. We also find this to be motivational for meal prep and inspiration for your next healthy start.
Dry Food Storage
This is a recent request from our young families, accessible dry goods and produce such as onions and potatoes. A pantry serves a purpose only when considering fewer packaged foods and increased fresh foods that don’t need to live within the refrigerator. Consider a custom built piece like this one for unique storage solutions. Note, the smaller the pantry, the fewer processed foods to live in your home!
