Cynthia Padden, Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets won the 2019 Top Shelf Design Awards Garage over 600 square feet category for the project Awesome Atlantic Garage.
Here is how Padden described the winning project:
This custom garage in Alamo, California, is highlighted with brilliant Atlantic Blue gloss acrylic cabinets. According to the designer, the homeowner wanted to give his newly purchased home a unique and showstopping garage while adding storage and functionality.
Features include a double car lift, solid wood garage doors, stainless steel entertaining refrigerator, and generous square footage.
Valet designed 8-foot-high storage rich cabinets complemented with an extended maple butcher block work bench with builtin power and Omni Track tool storage, a kid's sport drop zone area and a frameless glass door, double, lighted trophy case.
The backwall section of the garage had a challenging soffit that required special design and engineering to maximize space, accommodate different heights and special trim molding to create a seamless, finished look.
