Need your kitchen to be both functional & beautiful?
Ever get the feeling that you have to crawl into the cabinet to get something? It takes all the fun out of cooking. You can get some full extension soft closing drawers and pullouts! Or maybe you need more storage, and much more countertop space to work on? There is more than 1 good cook in the family? …but when trying to cook together… oh boy… you keep bumping to each other, no place to put your glass of wine, and can’t even open the refrigerator door when the other cook is standing just there, next to the sink, or un loading the dishwasher…
What is the golden triangle and what is it doing in my kitchen?
what about this enclosed kitchen space? You labored for hours – prepared a wonderful dinner for your guests – they are having fun in the dining/living room, and here you are by yourself not getting to enjoy them… before you know it they are gone, and you are left with the dirty dishes… that’s not the way you have pictured entertaining your guests.
Good kitchen design will create the dream kitchen for you! –that’s exactly my specialty.
Want your bath to feel like a spa?
You are asking yourself, how can i make it work with the small space that i have? Or maybe it sound too complicated and way beyond your budget?
Well, let us help you. My team and i are quality focused and detail oriented. We have created tens of amazing bathrooms, ones that you actually enjoy taking a bath in this luxurious freestanding soaking tub, feel the drops of the rain shower, share the double sink vanity and feel the warmth when walking barefoot on the heated tile floors.
The flow of the house doesn’t work for you?
Your home is a prefect location, great neighbors and good schools… there is a ‘but’ – the flow doesn’t work for you, you don’t have enough room to hang out, watch tv, the entry to the rooms or bathroom is not private? Everybody can see your toilet? Need your in laws to stay with you for longer period of time? Can’t find a way to layout your furniture? Not enough spaces for all the activities you would like to have in your home? You dream of a comfortable, cozy home, but just can’t see how it will work in your space?
Space planning is crucial when these are your concerns, we will create several concepts of your home plans for you to choose from. The floor plans will meet your activity/ family dynamic. Usually our clients’ reactions to the floor plans presentation are ‘jaw dropping’, saying: “we could never think of that solution”, especially when the requirement is to stay within the footprint and rooflines of the existing home.
In case you can’t read floor plans we can provide you with 3d rendering, elevations and isometric sketches.
Want your remodeling to pay off when selling your home?
Don’t want to sell now, but still want your remodeling to pay off when selling? We are looking at the big picture, design in a way that will incorporate your personal style, and will not be taste specific – at the same time. The design is timeless and priceless.
Over the years, my clients have sold their homes with multiple offers “war” between the buyers, above market price – their investment was paid back big time, and they got to enjoy it all these years until selling.
Yes, they hired us again to design their new home. Yes, the buyers who lost the offer “war”, hired us to “create the magic” in the house they end up buying. The numbers/facts are our best recommendation.
Would love to have all of that, but don’t know where to start? What my budget will allow for?
Not sure where to start? What you want to achieve? What can you afford? Your spouse and you are not in agreement? Are you the kind of person that knows exactly what you want? Want to do it all by yourself? Love furniture stores and picking up colors? … you just need this professional overlook and ideas to wrap it all up?
