Kimberlee Melcher had her dream studio in Spokane not once, but twice, early in her interior design career with her contractor-husband Kevin Melcher under the moniker Downtown Kitchen & Design, and then again in 2014.

“We opened our first design showroom in 2001 renovating an old historic building, creating display kitchen vignettes with working appliances and using the space for trade events and hosting client parties,” says Melcher.

But things change, and within a few years of rebranding under Kimberlee Kristine, Melcher closed the downtown studio and decided to fashion the company’s new design studio closer to home. Her home.

The couple renovated their Millwood-area residence into a space to entertain clients, as well as to highlight cabinetry, surface, flooring, countertops and lighting for which they are dealers.

The newly completed kitchen is now her favorite

Article content continued

“In the past 30 years, there hasn’t been an idea that we weren’t able to execute. From wine rooms to pools, the intellectual value we’ve gathered over our time in business helps us to bring pretty well any idea to life.”

The ideas really start coming to life on the plot of land, with some customers buying the land in a chosen location and others choosing a lot where the builder has land holdings.

“It’s about a 70/30 split between them buying a lot somewhere, or rebuilding on a lot they already own or
choosing land we own,” says Kwasnicki. “Whether a customer has come to us with their own lot on an acreage or in the city or is building on one of our inventory lots, we always come out to walk and survey the property to ensure what we’re designing will work with the land.

Benefits of Custom Homes

When it comes to investing your hard earned cash into a home, you have two options. You can buy an existing property, maybe do some renovations to make it your own, or you can build your own custom home based on your unique needs and requirements.

Protect Your Investment – Build a Custom RV Garage

After investing thousands of dollars in the recreational vehicle of your dreams, what better way to protect your investment than with an RV garage? If you own a recreational vehicle, you already know that most RV’s are too tall and long to fit in a standard garage.

Prefabricated garages are made from materials such as steel, vinyl siding, cedar, or other wood siding. Lighter weight aluminum RV garages are also available, but are less likely to endure extreme weather conditions like more durable materials will.

Purchasing a custom designed RV garage enables it to be built to your specific needs as well as allows it to be built … Read More

Off the Shelf Cabinets Versus Custom Cabinets, What Are the Differences?

Stock Cabinets

Stock, or store cabinets, are what you see if you go to a large home improvement store. Each store will typically have a very basic, unfinished cabinet line that is stocked in store and ready to purchase and take home that day. These are usually your cheapest option, but selections are very limited. Most of the time these will need to be finished either by you or by a contractor. Don’t expect anything spectacular, these are usually cabinets in their most basic form. Drawer fronts are typically made from glued up strips of wood instead of one single piece of wood. Doors are usually paneled doors instead of raised wood panel doors. The carcasses of the cabinets will typically be cut from particle board, and if there is a back panel it is usually 1/8″ hard-board. Countertop fastening brackets will be small, plastic corner brackets with a single … Read More
