Plato Locker System

In this series we’ve talked a lot about kitchen design, but today we’re going to switch things up and talk mudrooms! With storage and organization being such hot trend right now it would be a shame if we didn’t highlight our locker systems offered by Plato, one of our cabinetry lines. We sat down with Sherri, one of our Kitchen and Bath Designers to learn more about this great new product. “Lockers are a great way to make your mudroom or laundry room a more functional space,” said Sherri. “Plato offers a locker system that will not only add functionality but create a beautiful focal point for your mudroom.” This locker system is semi-customizable, which means you can mix and match and play a

Picking the Perfect Countertop

Selecting countertops is a tricky business. Not only do you have to decide on material, but you must consider the color and pattern as well. With so much to consider, we decided to chat with one of our expert Kitchen & Bath designers, Sherri Eagle, to learn how to pick the perfect countertops for your space. At Studio H2O we work with some talented fabricators who offer granite, quartz and laminate options.

Island Dreams

When designing or remodeling your kitchen it’s important to think about whether a kitchen island is viable in your space. It’s easy to get caught up in the dreamy islands you see in HGTV kitchens, but not every kitchen can accommodate a 14-foot island. We turned to Sherri to discover the requirements for designing an island as well as the design options available. First things first, when deciding whether your kitchen can fit an island it’s important to measure! According to the NKBA, a minimum of 42” of walkway are required on all sides of the island.
