Every year at this time we get so many sweet phone calls asking if we can help decorate for the holidays. While we can’t actually come do it, to help make Christmas a little brighter, we’ve compiled some of our favorite decor options for you! These links will take you to retail stores with great sales! Enjoy!

What is more important in a business than increasing the motivation, engagement and productivity of employees?

The right office furniture — desks, chairs, tables, bookshelves, etc. — impacts both the physical and mental well-being of employees. The arrangement of these pieces is also vital to facilitating teamwork, collaboration, switching gears, or quiet areas.

Our most recent endeavor was with Kansas Farm Bureau, whose existing office space needed an update to include more collaborative and flexible spaces, privacy pods, a large conference room, dining spaces, and a welcoming reception area.

We are pleased with the products and the flexibility they provide our client!

We are excited to share before and after photos from a remodel of our client’s 1939 bungalow.

From the client: “I love this space: open, clean, full of US (all the photos on the walls we took on trips, family photos), surround sound speakers so we can listen to music while cooking/eating dinner and watch movies with full effect, entertain friends and family, but most of all it is where we are all together!”

Consider your patio to be an outside extension of your home. It should be cozy and inviting so that you and your guests will want to linger there just a little longer.

Following are our top five tips for preparing for summer:

  1. Wash the dust and dirt off the flooring and furniture.
  2. Spruce up your beds and planters by cleaning out dead leaves and replacing with live plants.
  3. Replace any worn out seasonal items like cushions, umbrellas, and candles.
  4. Accessorize with coordinating pillows and throws.
  5. Set the mood with outdoor lighting and fans.

We love the way our Farmhouse client’s screened-in porch turned out. A covered porch allows a home owner a little extra shade, and some flexibility in the design materials – like rugs.

Choosing the right furniture for your outdoor space can be a big task. First, consider what you’ll use the space for and how many people you’ll typically host. Then, select a style and color of furniture that coordinates with your home. If you need help, we offer Furniture Packages for any room, including patios. We have a lot more stylish and durable outdoor furniture options than local box stores, although ordering does take some time.

Whatever you choose to do with your outdoor space, we hope you get to enjoy it with good conversation, yummy food, and great company.

We are thrilled to share photos of the new Hayden Orthodontics Office!

This remodel is a gorgeous transformation and we loved being a part of the planning.

We began looking at this office space in September of 2016 and completed the preliminary design board two months later. We provided full-service design, which includes everything from working directly with the architect and contractor throughout the process to selecting and purchasing furniture.

Full-service design is time intense (18 months on this one), which is why it provides the most polished look. It is really fun to see the pieces come together on all projects, but especially projects like this one where we get to execute the design!

Our most recently completed project was a lot of fun – we were able to blend both commercial and residential features as we put together a sleep disorder lab that provides sleep evaluations for patients and doctors.

The team at Z Sleep Diagnostics hired AsterHouse Design to do full-service design and furnishings; and BHS Construction to execute the work.

This space needed to include five well-appointed and comfortable bedrooms with televisions, adjustable mattresses, private bathrooms, and medical equipment for overnight patient studies.

We also setup a common breakfast area with coffee and tea service, beverage fridge, and self-serve non-perishable food items.

The technicians also needed comfortable office for discussing treatment equipment, as well as a quiet area for observing sleep patterns .

Lastly, the front office staff will be able to answer phones, make appointments, and greet patients in an open and inviting front entry.

We are so pleased with the results of this project and wish the team at Z Sleep all the best in helping their clients catch some ZZ’s!

If you have any questions about this project; or about working with us, we welcome your phone call at 785-587-0202.
