Traditional & Stylish
Fair Dawn Court
Before: This master bath was quite spacious and architecturally spectacular, but the dark floral wallpaper, awkwardly shaped tub, dated cabinets, and poor lighting made the space feel dark, unbalanced and overall unappealing. Lastly, the shower was too small and lacked the comfort and safety features these clients wanted. These clients wanted a classic Tuscan style bathroom with warm woods and soft natural colors.
After: This remarkable transformation started with the two custom vanities. Beautiful Cognac-colored cherry wood cabinets complete with four appliance garages for easy access storage, soaring towers, and light bridges were created. The window over the tub was replaced with a glass block window to allow in light while maintaining privacy. A warm Tuscan style tile was used throughout the floor and continued onto the tub and shower walls. The shower doubled in size with its new seamless glass enclosure, tub/ shower bench, and dual shower heads.
Before: This kitchen renovation was part of this classic home’s revival. The ivory cabinets, off white countertops, and white floors felt dated and looked washed out. The existing island and dominating hood cut this seemingly large kitchen into two narrow halves. The furdowns were imposing and took up valuable ceiling height, and the room was isolated and closed off from the living area.
These clients dreamed of a spacious and elegant space for cooking and entertaining that would complement the home’s traditional style.
After: This kitchen underwent some serious changes starting with removing the furdowns and large vent hood. We opened up the entire space by widening the entrance into the living area by 9’ and expanding the kitchen into the breakfast room. A large new window was added to bring in some much-needed natural lighting and re-center the space, while the old window was removed and bricked over from the exterior allowing room for a beautiful 48” pro-style gas range and hood. Clean, pale grey traditional cabinets were paired with contrasting black marble look quartz countertops, all surrounding a large well-functioning espresso island with beautiful white marble countertop, simple hardware, and stunning accents.
Before: This 1990s Cinco Ranch home was architecturally beautiful with its open concept layout and vaulted ceilings. However, the home owners were unhappy with the outdated kitchen, the cabinets were poorly stained light oak with busy graining, the fluorescent lighting felt sterile, and the countertops were unappealing.
They loved their home, but the kitchen needed an overhaul!
After: American cherry wood cabinets with rich brown undertones set the stage in this kitchen transformation. The refrigerator was moved to the end of the wall to allow for a larger continuous countertop. One-of-a-kind granite was handpicked and displayed chunks of brilliant quartz and beautiful black sparkle. A custom built in wine bar area was included for style and functionality, recessed lighting and pendant light was added to brighten the entire space, while upper and under cabinet lighting was used to create an overall warm glow.
Before: Everything in this master bath was just as the builder designed it with zero personality and minimal storage. This master bath was dark and lacked the charm. The client needed a space that fit their home and lifestyle.
After: Traditional cream maple glazed cabinets were paired with creamy granite countertops and beautifully arched hung mirrors. A center tower was incorporated to allow for additional storage. The small water stained shower was enlarged and given a completely open feel with a frameless glass enclosure and dual shower head, including a lighted hydro powered rain showerhead.
Before, This bathroom was dark and dated. Despite its vaulted ceiling and large window, the bathroom felt cramped and uncomfortable. The builder grade shower was small and water stained, the jetted tub unusable and the entire space lacked style and function. These clients wanted to fall in love with their home again and a “spa like” master bath was the perfect start.
After, This master bath has been completely transformed. Starting with the old arched window that was updated to a clean new modern design to draw the eye up and allow in more light. A new pony wall was built to define the space, allowing for privacy and highlighting the beautiful new seamless glass shower. A freestanding tub with elegant hardware is the focal point of this bathroom and contrasts perfectly with the rich chocolate wood-like tile floors. The star of this transformation is the vibrant navy-blue vanity that adds a pop of color and a ton of style.
Before: The space was closed off from the rest of the house and with a maze of furdowns and dropped cabinets. The peninsula obstructed the room’s flow and blocked the view of the yard and pool. The ovens were small and poorly placed, the fluorescent lighting was harsh and unflattering, and there was an overall lack of storage space.
For this large family, the kitchen is the heart of the home and they needed a space that would reflect their style and accommodate their family.
After: We opened up the space by removing the existing furdowns and peninsula and adjusted the layout for better flow and function. A new electric cooktop was relocated to the peninsula to create a feeling of inclusivity and give a clear view into the living area and backyard. Recessed lighting, pendant lighting, and a chimney style island hood were added to brighten the space. The rich cherry cabinets and exotic granite work together perfectly to create a warm and welcoming kitchen for this family to enjoy for years to come.
Before: This master bathroom was open and spacious. The tall ceilings and wall of windows were beautiful pre-existing features, but weren’t being emphasized to their full potential. The all white color pallet was sterile, and the accent color unflattering. The vanities lacked storage, the corner tub was small and unusable, and the corner shower was dated and small. These clients wanted a master bath they could enjoy for years to come.
After: The entire back area of this master was turned into a large open wet room including a new soaker tub, open concept shower with dual shower heads, intricate mosaic shower floor, and glass tile detailing. New glass block was added to the windows to allow in light. Espresso shaker cabinets were used to add style and storage, and paired with beautiful granite countertops and nickel hardware.
Home at Honeywood
Before: When longtime clients Carol and Kevin McCoy’s home was devastated by hurricane Harvey in August 2017, they immediately contacted us to repair the damage and restore their lives.
These clients had planned on a master bath remodel, but the tragedy shifted their priorities.
After: This entire kitchen was gutted back to the studs due to water damage and a new, more open design was created. The wall separating the kitchen from the family room was removed to create an open concept layout and elegant grey cabinets were chosen and paired with white quartz countertops and coordinating white marble herringbone backsplash. The harsh box light was updated to six recessed ceiling lights to brighten the space and a beautiful gold chandelier used to anchor the island. The original peninsula was replaced with an oversized detached island for additional storage and extra seating, and a beautiful rich brown hardwood floor was selected to ground the entire area.
Hidden Crest Way
Before: This master bath needed a complete overhaul. The shower space was large, but the cultured marble shower walls were starting to discolor, and the corner bath was unsuitable for the client’s needs. In addition, the wallpaper border was dated, the cabinets and floor were worn, and the countertops were uneven and stained from years of use. These clients wished for a calming private oasis with sophisticated style.
After: The large corner tub was replaced with a new clean lined freestanding tub and wall mounted faucet. The shower was given a major facelift with new marble tile shower walls, a rain shower head, and pebble mosaic floor. A shaker espresso cabinet style was chosen for the new larger vanity area and paired with a gorgeous quartzite countertop. The new custom mirror acts as a design feature all on its own, stretching to the ceiling to visually expand the space.
Before: This master bath was large but outdated. The wallpaper was busy and unflattering, the was lighting dark, and the entire space lacked function and storage.
After: “Contemporary retreat” perfectly describes the end result of this master bath remodel. Dark wood grain European style frameless cabinets were paired with sleek gleaming metal fixtures. Slate grey tile floors balance perfectly with the smoke grey walls and the liner grey mosaic tile detail on the backsplash, tub, and decorative shower trim.
