Whether you’re looking for help with a single room makeover, a remodeling project, a complete home renovation, or starting new build construction, Living Solutions’ Full-Service Design covers it all. This service typically is completed in four phases:
We had worked with Gina on a couple of projects before our kitchen remodel. I took the task to Gina with my folder full of inspiration for our kitchen and plopped it in front of her, expecting Gina to laugh at me but instead she ran with it! Gina loved my vision of a clean, yet traditional style which made us even more excited that this really could happen. My biggest “want” was a china hutch that look like we found it in an antique store, but was a part of the overall custom cabinetry. Again, Gina “got it”. She was able to sketch out a plan and nail the look of the hutch and how it would be incorporated into the kitchen on the first draft! What we appreciated even more was her ability to sit down with us and our contractor and make sure that every single detail was addressed and we all agreed so that there would be no mistakes. That level of detail was paramount in the kitchen process. I have never undertaken a project with so much detail! I can report that we had no change orders! Who can say that? One mantra I had with both Gina and our contractor was that I wanted to treat the design and function so that every inch of space had to have a purpose. Due to her efforts, I now can honestly say, we have extra space in the kitchen! And the kitchen actually looks bigger! We incorporated much larger windows to bring in more light which helped tremendously and raised the doorway to add to that illusion of space - thank you Gina! I would say the most fun I had was when we went shopping for the quartzite counter, tile, hardware, etc. Gina knew exactly where we should go and she would have some samples already pulled so it made the process much, much easier. The kitchen was completed about six months ago and we still stand in it in amazement! It is more than we ever expected!
This client’s galley kitchen needed better function and a refreshed look. We worked together with the contractor and cabinet maker on many occasions to be sure every detail was resolved and the design was exactly what the client was envisioning. The specially made china hutch was designed from inspiration photos the client had and it was made to look like a stand-alone piece of furniture. All of the design details from the custom cabinetry to the soapstone counters to the detailed backsplash tile design really made this kitchen a completely custom space. Every detail was thought out for this project and it reflected the client’s style and the function they needed.
This kitchen was in need of an update but the clients did not want to invest in a total kitchen renovation. We had an overall budget for the entire home remodel, which included the kitchen, three bathrooms and new flooring, so smart planning and product selection was necessary to be sure we had the most design impact while being mindful of the budget. The existing cabinets were painted inside and out, and new wood plank tile was carried through the kitchen, breakfast nook and adjacent dining room. The walls got a fresh coat of paint, and new cabinet hardware, an oversized beveled subway tile for the backsplash, and new quartz counters gave this kitchen a completely new look and feel.
This client was finishing a full home renovation and was in need of all new furnishings. We started working together to complete the space with all the furnishings, art work, area rugs, accessories and custom window treatments. These clients had a strict deadline and we were able to work together for a few months to complete their entire space. We were able to find a great window treatment solution for some tricky windows that maximized their incredible views, while at the same time solved for issues of glare and heat. This project was the first of many design projects with this client and their family.
