Whole Home Remodel, Part 2

Our 80's remodel is coming along -- this week we focused on finishing up flooring. It's amazing what an effect the change of one surface in a room can make. We finished laying hardwoods in the redesigned open concept kitchen and dining area, and replaced all of the carpet upstairs for a simple but total upgrade of the bedrooms. 

As we walk through the changes from this week, keep an eye out for another amazing 80's holdout that is getting a boost into this century. 

Floors: Up & Down

 This gives you an idea of the space opened up when we removed the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room. Open concept here we come!

 No new floors or banisters getting scratched or dinged up by our crew -- we care about our work as much as our homeowners!

80'S FIREPLACE

Check out this centerpiece of 80's decadence -- a pink tiled fireplace. Sad as it makes the "retro" in us to say goodbye, it was time for the pink tile to go!

ENTRYWAY

Another area with maximum impact is the entryway and staircase. It's the first thing you see upon entering, and an upgrade was definitely in order. 

 The old newel post was just too small for this tall and long entryway. By increasing the scale and replacing the treads with beautiful hardwoods, the staircase becomes a focal point not just a means of transportation.
