Before and After: Our Most Recent Renovation

We've just finished up a pretty new project and we're beyond excited to share the final pictures! This full gut-reno was unfortunately prompted by a fire in our sweet client's kitchen. Thankfully no one was harmed and once their belongings had been moved out, they came to us to begin the re-build.  We laid all new floors, re-imagined the kitchen layout for a better flow, and even added a beautiful new plaster fireplace.

The old layout featured a peninsula that blocked off the dining area and made it difficult to fit more than two people at a time in the kitchen. Adding the island gained us some precious prep-space and opened it up, making it freer for entertaining or busy family weeknights.

For finishes, we opted for rift cut oak cabinets and durable quartz counters and backsplash to give it a more modern feel (finally, a break from shaker, ha!). We loved that they decided to bring the counters over the side in a waterfall—such a clean and crisp detail.

Next up was the Living Room. Our clients wanted to warm up a once-blank wall without overwhelming the room. We installed a new fireplace insert and custom built the sleek, minimalistic surround, finishing it in a hand-plastered treatment.

Of course, the bathrooms were completely overhauled as well. Our clients hadn't changed out the builder-grade finishes they inherited when they moved in, so we started from scratch to create luxurious spaces that will stand the test of time (and three young kids).

Lastly, to change the feel of the entire apartment, we upgraded the trim throughout and swapped the doors for fresh single panels with new chrome hardware.
