The Beautification Project
With warm weather approaching, local professionals tell us how homeowners can give their spaces a facelift.

by Kaytlyn Mroz

With the spring season just beginning to bloom, now is the time homeowners will begin to get antsy about their home improvement projects. Whether you are looking to revamp the interior of your home or give your landscape a makeover, Suburban Family  spoke with the professionals in the business about the projects that are sure to make your home the best on the block. 

 “If  you  have  the  space,  we  have the ideas. We created a paver patio as an addition to existing pool concrete. This has given the homeowne r more space for entertaining. The fire pit and seating wall can be used all year round. The raised river rock bed with new plantings is a  beautiful view from the kitchen window. The landscape lighting completes the project and lights up the area at night.”

 “The latest trend is utilizing gray as a default color and accenting with splashes of bolder color which in this case is coral. Photos like these help clients envision working with bolder colors while staying in trend. What clients love about gray is that it works with a n array of accent colors such as navy, plum, orange and many others. The colors used in this project were Sherwin-Williams’ Agreeable Gr ay 7029, Quite Coral 6614 and Jovial 6611.”

 “This project involved transforming a spare bedroom into a stunning dressing room ‘fit for a princess.’ Key features included a light ed shoe closet, a double hutch display case for purses and jewelry with drawer and  double glass doors, a custom island with a bench seat and a granite countertop and decorative base and crown molding throughout.”

 “Outdoor living spaces are still the hot trend; everything from custom fire pit inserts, LED night lighting, built-in grills and more. Paver manufacturers are even coming up with new and innovative material textures and styles, from pavers that look like wood planks and random stone patterns, to wall systems that emulate cultured stone masonry walls and custom quarried stone.”

 “Full rein was given to our designer with this amazing kitchen and she really used her skills to her limits. Glitz and glam are seen thr oughout with a bold tile backsplash and statement pendant lights. Rustic barn wood on the ceiling creates a homey feel. The entire space i s tied in with neutral, clean colors creating a modern look.”
