Before & After
The Sellers of the homes we purchase have very sentimental stories and heart felt memories of their family’s history in the home. It is our mission that the home continue to be a factory of happy memories and a sense of pride for the new owner and the neighborhood!
Dramatic St Charles Kitchen Rehab
Defining Spaces in an Open Floor Plan
A lighting change makes this huge “dance floor” into two defined spaces. An intimate dining area and a family room area are now defined. The dining area light was lowered after the rehab was finished and risk of contractors hitting their heads was over.
Thanks Sherwin Williams!
The first thing you noticed on this exterior was the green triangle held up by three green legs. Once we painted the trim with a color that compliments the brick, the house looks larger and more attractive.
Before & After Webster Groves Cottage
Removing old, over grown landscape adding a driveway and shutters made this home as cute as the others on the street.
Keep the Charm!
This Webster Groves kitchen already had a timeless foundation that just needed to be refreshed and a bit more functional, can’t have function without a dishwasher!
The original light fixture was relocated.
Where Do You Start?
This West County split needed a lot of love! It also needed a lot of scrubbing! The dining and living room was completely shut off from the kitchen. Nestled in the woods the interior walls also obstructed the gorgeous outdoor views.
Needing Help in Maplewood
This space didn’t appear to have a defined purpose and became a dumping ground for items without a home. The stair wall was lowered to make the space visually wider. The gorgeous row of windows were revealed and storage was added to make a happy sunny breakfast room!
Mission: Great Kitchen in Small Space
The opening to this kitchen had to be shifted to the right in order to fit a full row of cabinets and counter top.
Bathroom Come Back!
Apparently the painter didn’t come back but the bathroom did make a full comeback!
This photograph of a Restoration Hardware mirror/medicine cabinet helped me convince my project manager that the old medicine cabinet covered in blue had real potential.
Worth the Investment!
The stained glass windows that flank this fireplace were in need of repair. One window was even being held together with duct tape. A local craftsman quickly restored the windows, they should be good for at least another 70 years!
North County Townhouse Kitchen Update!
This home had great vaulted ceilings but the kitchen design didn’t take advantage of the great height and interesting angles. Taller cabinets and a light fixture bring attention to the interesting ceiling lines.
Paint it White!
Since this odd sized vanity would have been very expensive to replace.
Because it was in such good condition we opted to paint the vanity and spend the savings on a great light fixture.
Off With The Wallpaper!
Off With The Mirror!
Simple Changes Can Make a Huge Difference
Peel and Stick Brick?
Replacing an old Tic, Tac, Toe Window
Just a Scrub & Paint
Take Advantage of Every Inch
This kitchen was in need of counter top space and of course a dishwasher!
We continued the cabinets to the door and was able to keep the plumbing put.
No Longer Singing the Blues
The great thing about this blue carpet is that is did a wonderful job of protecting the gorgeous hardwood floors below!
