RE-DO AND RENEW FOR SPRING!

It’ s that time of year again…“ Spring Cleaning” ! Most of us think of this as a time to discard old or worn out items, things that are no longer useful or appropriate for our stage of life. What about the areas of your home that are “ wasted” space” or “ unorganized” so that they cannot well serve the purpose they were built for?
We invite you to take a longer look around your home and assess if where you spend most of your time (likely your kitchen and bathroom), if these areas meet your needs. Are they pleasing to look at, comfortable to perform tasks, do they make you just a little bit house proud? If you answer no to any of these questions then perhaps it’ s time to take on a remodel.
Updating and/or re-designing these two areas in the home to be not only more efficient in function but also more aesthetically beautiful has a greater effect than mere financial gain of increased property value. Making your home more pleasing to look at, comfortable to be in and function more smoothly during your daily tasks greatly affects your mood and emotional state. Studies have shown that many people report feeling much happier on a day to day basis and have improved relations with their spouses and children after renovating the problem areas of their homes.
For this spring season we are featuring one of our own projects, a newly constructed master bath in San Francisco. You can view the project in the Gallery under bathrooms and the before & after section. We are quite proud of this particular design in part because we received first place for Best Residential Bathroom Remodel from the ASID Design Excellence Awards.
The flat previously had only one very small bathroom in the hallway area. Not an efficient size nor function for a family dwelling. However, there was quite a bit of wasted space in the kitchen, a mostly never used breakfast nook that happened to be conveniently located adjacent to one of the bedrooms. By reclaiming this space, converting it into a master bath we were able to provide much needed privacy and storage as well as creating a lovely spa-like ambiance. Many details and features such as a warm floor under the tile and built-in niches at varying heights in the walk-in shower make this master bath feel luxurious.
If you would like to make your home feel like your own personal oasis then please contact us for a consultation. We would be honored to create a unique beautiful design for you and help you realize your vision for a better home environment.
