Ready to Sell
Our clients had a desire to update their home so that they could sell it in the upcoming spring market. We worked with them to come up with a game plan: we had to figure out what changes would make the most impact for the amount of money they wanted to spend, and determine what design elements would be important for buyers searching for homes in the current market.
Because the kitchen quite literally sells a home, we decided to put the most work into that space! We did shaker doors to replace the old raised panel doors and kept the existing cabinets. We painted the cabinets and new doors, installed new door hardware from Restoration Hardware, replaced the backsplash with subway tile, installed butcher block countertops and for the island we did a quartz countertop. We put shiplap on the kitchen island and put in a new cooktop, and a new vent hood above the island. Really the only thing we weren’t able to do budget-wise was to replace the black-and-white tile flooring, but I do think the changes we made minimized the busy-ness of the space!
The laundry room is located right off the kitchen, so we did a hexagon tile, new sink and faucet, painted the cabinets and put new doors on those as well. And just adjacent to the laundry room is a small desk area that we matched up to the kitchen with coordinating quartz countertop, subway tile, shaker cabinet doors, and new door hardware.
Their living area is connected to the kitchen so we remodeled the fireplace. We reframed a rough opening for a fireplace insert, did new plumbing for a gas line, built the hearth (cutting the wood floor to make that happen), put a thin brick tile on and painted it, and installed a cedar mantle, custom fabricated by Jason!
