    As a result of having been well-satisfied with a previous job done by your firm, we contacted you to paint several rooms in our house. Once again not only were we pleased with the job performed, but we were impressed with the care they took to protect furniture and carpeting.

  • Build A Plate Rack…Or Have The Home Mechanics Do It For You!

    Kitchen Rack

    Need more space for your plates, bowls or coffee mugs? Wish there was more space in the kitchen cabinets to store them? How about asking your Cleveland Contractors to make and install one for you? Get into action by hiring us to easily create some kitchen racks, or any other storage ideas you want crossed off your list:

    If you're looking for a way to dramatically boost the charm and functionality of your kitchen, consider adding an open plate rack. It mounts to the wall, leaving counters uncluttered, and gets your dishes out in the open—easy to grab and hard not to admire.

    The fine example at right features shapely sides and Shaker pegs to hang cups or towels. To build it, you'll need a few pieces of poplar or equally solid lumber for the sides and shelves, a piece of beadboard for the back, and hardwood dowels. It mounts with a French cleat, which you can make from wood or purchase in metal.

    Alternatively, if detail work with dowels doesn't sound like your cup of tea, there are any number of options you can buy instead, ranging from mass-produced models to handcrafted marvels. No matter what, you'll feel good giving your dishes a proper place to shine.
