This new town home is located in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia and was new construction. Our client contacted us at the beginning of this downsizing project so that we could help chose the best options from the builder’s offerings. In the meantime we were able to do floor plans and chose furnishings and fixtures so that installation could be made as soon as the house was finished. Notice the cohesiveness of the colors and design. Please contact us for a consultation.

We were brought into this project after our client hired a wonderful local cabinet designer to enlarge, layout, and design the cabinetry. We helped our client chose everything else for this fabulous large master bathroom. As you can see, everything our client needs is in this wonderful bathroom.
Besides the double sink, vanity area equipped with Painted Vanity Units with Stone Tops, stand alone tub, shower with build-in bench, we made sure that the tiles, hardware, LED lighting, finishes and colors fit our clients needs and desired looks. At the end of the project, our client said “I don’t want to leave my new bathroom!”.
According to Houzz, master bathrooms just became the third most popular room to renovate as of 2017. Not only can you enjoy a new bathroom, but also add value to your home. Please contact us for a consultation!
Whether you hire a contractor or decide to take on the work yourself, begin by starting finding out how much the project costs. Lenders will insist on a specific figure before they work with you. If you’re hiring a contractor, start with a firm bid, broken down into labor and materials. Then add on 10 percent for surprises.
On work you’ll do yourself, compile a detailed materials list with quantities, costs, and an accurate total. Include permit fees and equipment rental. Then add a cushion of 20 to 30 percent to be safe. Once you know how much you need to finance your home improvement project, how much will you get?
Despite the promises and hype lenders make in their ads and promotional materials, how much you can borrow hinges on your credit rating, the loan-to-value ratio, and your income

We are so happy to report that our clients’ condo was chosen by Main Line Today Magazine to be featured in the November 2016 issue. Our clients brought us into this project at the very beginning so we were able to work alongside of Pohlig, the developer of Athertyn at the Haverford Reserve in Haverford, Pennsylvania. Our clients have an extensive vintage poster collection which became the focal point of the interior design. Here is a link to the Main Line Today article Photography by Tessa Marie Images
