Something as simple as painting can have a huge impact. This North Shore Chicago home had great bones but heavy wood paneling and mismatched flooring gave it a very dated feel.
We re-stained all existing hardwood floors and installed new hardwood on upper level to match. The heavy woodwork was given a fresh lease on life with White Dove paint . All door hardware was replaced with more contemporary pieces in white bronze by Emtek. Carpentry projects included a set of built in bookcases, custom mantles and straightening out a curved staircase which had too big of a footprint.
Attention was paid to the flow of the living space and the position of an entry way was moved to offer better flow.
