Baby Gates?!

We have almost all been there; how to install a baby gate without damaging your trim or walls? Whether you are using a gate for a beloved pet, your precious child(ren) or your angelic do-no-wrong grandchild(ren),  there always seems to be an issue. "These plastic gates are unsightly!" "How do the kids figure out how to unlock them but adults can't work them?" "How can I fill in the holes in my trim and color match the patch?"

These are concerns we hear about all the time during our design process. As open staircases have become popular, clients have been looking for alternative methods of blocking of stairs for safety.

On one of our recent homes, the homeowners designed a custom swing gate for their stairwell. This trim piece was custom built and stained to match the rest of their trim. This solved the problem of installing the dreaded plastic gate and gave a nice finished look to their foyer.
