The variety of firewood storage designs have come a long way since the days of woodpiles and simple boxes. Here are some creative and beautiful solutions that will make storing firewood a stylish proposition:

  • Rolling Carts with Tall Uprights. These rolling carts make it easy for you to haul wood into your home. Plus, because they can be constructed from a wide variety of materials, you can build one custom to match your decor.
  • Storage Nooks. By creating firewood storage nooks beside your fireplace, you can free up space on your hearth and also reduce the risk of embers igniting your wood pile.
  • Storage Drawers. If you don’t want to look at your woodpile, store it away in a custom built drawer that will also collect any bark or branches that break off.
  • Steel Towers. These look beautiful within modern homes. Their stylish look and black frame turns the storage rack into a centerpiece that’s sure to spark some conversations.

Our team will be happy to help you choose the firewood storage design that fits with your style. We invite you to contact us at Design Build Team today to learn more about our home design services in Kansas City.

Designing a kid’s room with white cabinets, walls, carpeting, and other elements is a surefire way to bring a little light into your child’s life. Its calming tone and clean appearance will bring plenty of peace and joy into your home design.

Bathing a room with white colored furniture, netting, shelving, and throw carpets provides a neutral canvas that can be accented with brightly colored toys, books, and designs. These elements stand out against the white background and ignite the creative sparks bouncing around within your child’s mind. As a neutral foundation color, white rooms are easy to update and change the accents as the years pass by while your child’s interests change and develop.

A final thing to note is that when it comes to your paint and fabric choices — make sure that they are stain resistant and easy to clean. This will give your white decorating scheme a little extra protection against errant crayons, marker marks, and spilled cups of afternoon teas with teddy bears.

Convenient Modern Front Door Storage Units

Posted on October 1st, 2014 by

It can be hard to remember to grab your keys, phone, wallet, and other things you’ll need with you on a day out of your home. To make it easier, most modern front door storage systems give you a place where you can keep all the items in your pocket neat and tidy – right where you need them.

One great storage system is built by Yanko Design. It is a simple wall-mounted rack made of polished aluminum that provides storage for keys, phones, mail, and coats. This makes it a stylish and convenient place for you to put all your items when you walk in the door. They will be right where you need them when you are ready to head out again. Best of all, the rack itself takes up very little space, so it won’t get in the way by cluttering the entryway up.
