Kitchen Charging Station for Electronic Devices

kitchen charging stationHouseholds have so many power cords hanging around. They have one or two for each smartphone in the house, since you need to have easy access to them at all times because we cannot live without them. Then there are charging cables for the tablets, portable gaming devices, and mp3 players. Let’s face it; we need our technology.

Unfortunately with all the cables lying around, it can be quite unsightly as well as leaving a tangled mess for you to deal with.

Soapstone Countertops for Kitchen Remodeling

soapstone countertop ~ Design Build ProsThe latest trend in high end counter tops for kitchen remodeling is soapstone. Soapstone is a natural stone that comes from the quarry. It is referred to as “soapstone” because of its soft and soapy feeling surface. There are two different varieties of soapstone: artistic and architectural.

Like most homeowners, the new DBP client wants the project done as soon as possible. The difference? This project is more along the lines of a necessity.
