Finish Carpenter – Since 2020

Growing up with interests in drawing and woodworking prepared Payton for the start of his career in carpentry. For as long as he can remember he has always held a desire for art and expressing his talents through woodworking. Payton enjoys the daily tasks on the job but also enjoys making furniture and wood pieces in his spare time.

With classes taken at Wentworth Institute of Technology and completing a 4-year course through high school, Payton has engineering skills under his tool belt. Aside from carpentry, Payton has a love for sailing and even became a sailing instructor for the Plymouth Yacht Club at the age of sixteen. Teaching little ones the skill and passion for sailing means a lot to Payton as he ultimately grew up on a sailboat himself.

Baths

The bathroom is quite likely the second most used room in the home outside of the kitchen. Bathrooms today are not just utilitarian spaces; they more often emulate a relaxing spa-like retreat where you can escape the worries of the day and enjoy some solitude while you refresh & rejuvenate. More time spent in the bath means these spaces have to be beautiful in and of themselves, and that’s where we come in.

The Showcase of Style & Function

One factor in home design that is here to stay is the concept of space and functionality. Floating shelving serves as a versatile way to add personal touches to your home all while keeping the ease of functionality a top priority.

Whether your functional needs stem from a well-organized pantry, convenient coffee bar, or a showcase of style - function is key. 

Apart of creating a functional space that remains functional is following the mantra "Anything that takes up physical space takes up mental space". Meaning, it's important to identify the "must-haves" to create a purposeful space. Floating shelving allows for endless opportunities to change up design if desired - This is one factor that you are limited to with full cabinetry. Let's face it, seasons change and so does nature of design!

It's also perfect for those "Odd" spaces. Floating shelving is easily customizable and can be a great way to make that awkward space functionable and used.

Blue Harbor Kitchens + Baths General Manager, Jill Muldoon, touches upon how floating shelving can be a great contrast in any space.
 “I love adding a pop of color that will serve as a contrast in an otherwise ‘all white’ kitchen. Floating shelves in a natural wood, such as Walnut are a great way to achieve a subtle contrast. They can create a sense of warmth, give the space some character, and provide an opportunity to add personal style.”                             
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            In many ways, floating shelves can uplift a home and create a statement that serves as a functional part of our everyday lives.
