Before and After Gallery

Hyridge Problem

This small bathroom was tight and outdated. The closet was too small and this master bathroom did not have a shower. All surfaces were dating the bathroom and the cabinets had water damage.  When two people were using the vanity area at the same time they would bump into each other making the space seem even smaller.

Hyridge Solution

The closet was located at one end of the bathtub with the adjacent wall shared with the garage. This was ideal for a large walk in closet that was built using the space we captured from the garage. Next, we were able to use the old closet space to add a new shower and open the bathroom up.

North Bend Problem

This kitchen was outdated with dark walls, tiny pantry, and outdated appliances.  A wall next to the pantry was keeping the space shut off and leaving the room with a cramped feeling.

North Bend Solution

To bring this kitchen alive we removed the wall to open up the room allow more space.  The green walls and wallpaper were replaced with white paint to brighten the room.  We redesigned the cabinets and pantry for better functioning and more storage space.  We then added a new island and appliances.

Capella Trail Problem

The original bathroom lacked any focal points or redeeming functional qualities.  The bulky scale and dark colors, typical of the Tuscan style, didn’t suit the client’s “restoration Hardware inspired home.

 

Capella Trail Solution

 The new master suite boasts a refined aesthetic with a crisp, contrasting color palette.  Touches of rustic and organic elements sit juxtaposition to the modern freestanding vanities and sleek tile work.  An elegant arabesque-tile pony wall runs behind the lady’s vanity and pierces the shower glass acting as a visual element of interest and functional ledge.  Finally, a backdrop of split-face stone sets the stage for an inviting freestanding tub.

Oakshire Problem

This dark gallery kitchen called for a drastic makeover.  The kitchen ceiling was low with dark walls and dark cabinets which made the kitchen feel small.  The location of the refrigerator restricted the view between the breakfast nook and cooking area.

Oakshire Solution

The kitchen’s limited width inspired a design of light cabinetry with open shelving.  The refrigerator was relocated opening up the breakfast area.  Removing the dining room wall allows natural light in.  The existing ceiling light box was replaced with recessed can lights, task lights recessed into the open shelves illuminate on all work areas.  Granite countertops where selected for durability and clean up.  A microwave drawer provides more counter-space and cabinet drawers maximize storage.  The existing pantry was enlarged which now allows for the refrigerator to be built-in.

Trail Ridge Problem

The homeowners desire to remove the bottlenecks at the main entrance and table entrances into the kitchen was the challenge.

Trail Ridge Solution

The result was accomplished by relocating the laundry room to the upstairs and deleting the pantry.  Then shifting the Livingroom wall created a large soapstone workspace with a deep single basin sink with two faucets.  Floor to ceiling custom cabinetry and drawers, and angles provide for better flow while maximizing storage, including a baking station with power and light.  The Benchmark induction cooktop and under-counter refrigerator increase the client’s efficiency. Task and recessed can lights illuminate the entire kitchen.

St. Stephen’s School Road Problem

This client’s home had an awkward entrance into the home next to a stairwell.

St. Stephen’s School Road Solution

By adding a vestibule we were able to eliminate the previous interior entrance into the home.  Removing the dual exterior staircases and creating a single brick entrance gave the home great curb appeal as well as created useful storage below.    Used Chicago brick on the new walls and white sand slurry spread on the existing structure enhances the overall homes appears. New landscaping, adding a water feature and a standing seam metal roof accents top off the look of this home.

Problem

All surfaces were replaced when I remodeled this home, all walls were painted, and new flooring installed throughout. The small kitchen was separated from the dining area by a peninsula cabinet, cabinets were above and either side of the stove, there was a narrow doorway at the far end of the kitchen, kitchen floor was tile and a florescent light box was centered in the kitchen ceiling.

Solution

The wall above the stove was opened to create a pass-through breakfast bar with a granite counter top, pendant lights above the bar match the pendant light above the sink, tile and glass accent the back wall, and a tall arching faucet assembly provides easy access to the new stainless steel sink, .

Problem

This kitchen had red painted cabinets, laminate countertops and backsplash, inadequate lighting, a peninsula cabinet that reduced kitchen space, and an awkward storage/desk area in the kitchen.

Solution

This entire kitchen floor plan was redesigned. The peninsula was removed which greatly enlarged the kitchen, appliances were relocated, new cabinets and a central island with breakfast bar installed, furr downs were removed,  Zodiac counter tops with a built-in cutting board were installed on all cabinets and reproduction tin panels became the backsplash, recessed lighting was placed above work areas with pendant lights above the island, a redesigned storage area with all  new cabinets was custom built along an entire wall adjacent to the kitchen. Satillo floor tile were matched, patched and repaired..

Problem

Painted cabinets, awkward storage and desk area and misc. cracked and chipped Satillo floor tiles.

Solution

The storage and desk area was removed and redesigned with all  new cabinets along the entire wall, damaged Satillo floor tiles were matched, patched and repaired…

Problem

This kitchen needed a complete redesign to bring the kitchen out of the 1980’s and remove Formica counter tops, dark tile back splash, florescent light box.

Solution

Gorgeous black granite counter tops were installed throughout the entire kitchen, the tile back splash was removed and replaced with  travertine, cabinets were refinished with a white-wash,  recess lights were installed in ceiling and pendant lights were suspended over the bar.

Problem

This was originally a small galley kitchen with a glass block peninsula and side light. The kitchen was gutted down to the studs and the entire layout was redesigned.

Solution

The refrigerator was relocated and recessed in cabinetry for a balanced look. A new double oven with a decorative hood vent were installed. The dishwasher was placed at an angle with angular cabinets above for plates and glasses. A full depth pantry with a built-in microwave, a bread box drawer and pull-out cutting board were installed. The wall opposite the sink was removed and cabinets installed to create a pass-through to the dining room, opening the kitchen to the family area.  Granite counter tops were installed throughout.

Problem

This homey kitchen needed just a little bit of pazzaz. The project required multiple updates to give the kitchen a modern look that popped.

Solution

To give this kitchen the modern style it needed, we changed the cabinet door/drawer hardware, pendent light fixtures, and installed a new sink faucet. In addition, we updated the wall and cabinet paint colors and added a splash with the vertical tile backsplash on top of the granite splash to give this space just the right amount of pazzaz.
