We have discussed how important functionality is to your remodeling project – how your home remodel should meet the needs of your day-to-day life. Once we understand what you need out of your remodel, the next step is to consider what you want. The smallest details can make the biggest difference, and you don’t want to discover that certain design choices clash once everything is installed. Functionality is important for your living space, but aesthetics create a home.

Create Smooth Transitions and Continuity

Even if you are only remodeling one room, it’s important to consider how that will impact adjoining rooms. Are you changing the color of the walls in your kitchen? If one of those walls extends into your dining room or living room, it will be important to consider the best way to transition from one room to the next. The same is true of flooring transitions from kitchens to dining rooms or living rooms. We like to address transitions from the remodeled room to other rooms as part of your design plan, so that your entire home feels like it has continuity.

Love the Look

Functionality is also only a single component of the design phase. Even the smallest details – light fixtures, door handles, and cabinet hardware – are essential factors to consider before we start the actual remodeling project. You should love how the final design looks, and feel satisfaction and joy every time you look at the dream rooms you’ve designed.

Lighting

How light is used in a room can also make a distinct aesthetic impression. A well-designed kitchen or bathroom is useless if you don’t have sufficient lighting to see what you are doing. Perhaps you would prefer that the lighting in your kitchen and bathroom to be bright, while the lighting in your living and dining rooms to be more ambient. A small detail – a dimmer switch – can let you control the light level. Are you interested in ceiling lights in the hallway, or would sconces be a better fit? We like to help you see not only what kind of lighting to install but how to take advantage of natural lighting as well, through the use of windows, skylights, or even custom LED panels.

Find Beauty in Your Bathroom

The bathroom is often at the center of a remodeling project, but whether you’re designing a guest bath or a master spa retreat, small details in the bathroom make a huge difference in how much you love the space. From the right shower heads to the perfect lighting for a built-in vanity to the right countertop materials, achieving the right aesthetic is important. Functionality is important, but so is beauty. We can help you explore the atmosphere you want to create.

We listen to you describe what your goals are with your remodel, but we also ask questions and try to help you articulate what would make you happy and content in the space. We want to make it a place in which you love living, which is why we never let you stop at “fine.” “Fine” isn’t good enough for us – when you love what we’re going to do, and you can clearly envision and be enthusiastic about the transformation that will occur, then it’s time to pick up a hammer.

We’re here to help you every step of the way, so dream big!
