  • Transitional Kitchen Remodel, This newly updated transitional kitchen started out in desperate need of a makeover. My team and I went in and took out the wallpaper, painted the walls a rich grey, created a custom one level island, modified the existing cabinets, added granite, updated the lighting, added cabinet hardware, and completed the look with a few simple accessories. 

The space is now sleek, sophisticated, and more functional. The best part is that it feels much more spacious without the busy wallpaper. The client is happier than ever, and her dream kitchen is no longer a dream, but a reality., Kitchens

  • Nature themed nursury for a baby girl, Before our first child was born, we committed to a bedroom/bathroom renovation.  The only bathroom on the first floor had to be accessed through the bedroom, which wouldn't do.  In the baby's room, we hired a contractor to move the door, construct a new wall, replace windows, remove sliding glass doors, and install new lighting. For the decor, we chose cheerful colors of lavender and green with plenty of white and dark brown for contrast.  The decor has a woodland flair with trees and creatures of the forest., Bedrooms

  •  1970's modern to New modern, We needed to change our 1970's red oak and white laminate modular kitchen to our concept that reflects and respects the houses modern architecture. We removed all of the cabinets, appliances, flooring and lighting plus relocated windows. New cabinets in a color called "smoke" with stainless hardware, granite countertops, glass backsplash, maple hardwood floors and the addition of cable and pendant lighting created this new look., Kitchens

  • Updated master bedroom suite with fireplace, We recently updated our master bedroom.  My husband tore out the existing ceiling and put in a coffered ceiling to give the room an illusion of more size.  He built bookcases and cabinetry to showcase the addition of a fireplace.  With the addition of elegant lighting and draperies the room has exceeded our expectations.    We decorated the room using a monochromatic theme to give it a warm and comfortable "hotel suite" feel.  , Bedrooms

  • Gloomy to Sunny, Pool and deck were totally redone along with landscaping.  Pool was retrofitted with LED lighting and deck was covered in an elegant travertine stone.  Landscaping uses exotic plants and trees from South Florida, Asia, Brazil and the Caribbean while breaking the previous straight lines and producing a more "flowing" curved space. , Outdoor Spaces

  • Updated kitchen within same footprint, Our home was built in 2003, and the before pictures show the  builder's grade options.  We had Corian counter tops and an island with a breakfast bar.  We enjoyed this galley kitchen and it fit our needs when it came to just cooking for ourselves.  Five years ago we started to hold charity dinners in our home, and the counter top space and our range (Kitchenaid gas 4-burner stovetop/electric oven and a joke of an exhaust fan) started to not fit our needs. 

We decided that we needed an update, but it had to work in our existing space.  We liked the general area where things were located - we did not want to do an extensive move of gas lines or plumbing.

In Fall 2011, we completed this kitchen renovation that revolved around a new range centered in the kitchen.  It is a BlueStar 48" range with six burners and a grill and dual ovens.  We also added a Vent-a-Hood exhaust fan.  We kept our existing dishwasher and refrigerator (both KitchenAid Architect Series design) since they both worked fine and still fit with our overall design.  The microwave is a Panasonic with Inverter technology.  We chose the BlueStar range because we wanted nearly restaurant quality BTU gas output from a residential model range.  

We expanded the island to over double its width and lowered it to be a single level for more work surface space.  We also added cabinets with pull out shelves to the island to expand our storage space.  

Since we still liked our cabinets, we stuck with the same style and were able to keep some of them.  The excess were still in great condition, so they were donated to our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  Our old range and microwave we practically donated to someone who was trying to complete their own kitchen renovation, but hit hard times financially.  The true waste from the project was disposal of the old backsplash and counter tops.

The mixed media tile/stone/glass backsplash is from Lowe's; for the entire kitchen we used two slabs of "Ooba Tooba" granite; the pendant lights over the island were from Home Depot and we upgraded the under cabinet lighting from spots to a track system.  The garbage disposal in the island sink is activated by a push button and is flush with the counter top.

Over two years later and we still love our kitchen!  We feel it is  homey enough to not be intimidating, but provide the functionality needed when we do restaurant-style cooking as well as have space for guests to socialize and be put to work!!, Kitchens
