Many homes need remodeling and brought up to date as more and more people are staying in their existing locations.  We can help you update finishes, look at space requirements, open rooms to one another, update cabinetwork and counters.  In addition, if you are looking to add a room, a garage, design another building for your home or design a new home, we can ask the questions necessary to design to your needs.

Phillips First Floor Remodel

The first floor was a series of rooms – living room, dining room, den, sunroom, kitchen, and breakfast room.  The request was to open the space so there was more continuity and the rooms could be shared.  We removed walls between the den, living room, sunroom, and kitchen / breakfast room to open the lower level and allow the spaces to work together.  Even though the rooms are opened, there are multiple “zones” within the new space.  

All new luxury vinyl wood floors were installed, new wall finishes (removed the paneling in the den), new stair railings, new lighting and ceiling fans, new kitchen cabinets and new quartz countertops.  The white cabinets were increased in height for additional storage with undercounter lights and lighting above the cabinets added.  The wall for the oven and refrigerator was made to appear to be built in with a pull-out shelf and electrical outlet inside for small appliances.  A dark gray island was created with drawers to maximize storage and provide layout space while entertaining.  

We were able to reuse some of the existing furniture, lamps, artwork, and rugs along with supplementing new where required to fit the space and update the look.

Overall, the new downstairs provides an open layout with full visibility from the kitchen to the den, sunroom, and music room with updated finishes and lighting.   


Phillips Restroom Remodel

After living in their home for 15 years, it was time for an update to the restrooms.  

The request for the master bath was to make the layout more appropriate and to accommodate ADA requirements.  In addition, the existing windows did not provide enough light.  We shifted walls to make a larger shower and toilet room in addition to adding a soaking tub, new vanities, new mirrors, new lighting, soap niches, new finishes, and an additional window over the tub.

The second-floor guest bath needed mostly cosmetics, however, the window over the shower/tub was enlarged to increase daylight into the room.  A soap niche was also incorporated in the shower/tub.

At the powder room on the first floor, cosmetics were all that were needed.  Wall finishes, lighting and mirrors helped brighten the space and make it more welcoming.
