8 Tips On A Gut Remodel from Interior Designer Kevin Gray
1. Rework and Reuse
In a renovation, people often waste things that can be reused. Kevin was able to revamp and resurface the kitchen cabinets – and help save our environment and saves money. In the living area, Kevin gave new life to the bar by resurfacing and installing a new countertop.
2. Let the Light In
Widen a narrow hallway by moving the walls – Kevin reconfigured a closet and powder room and moved a wall to make the entry 2 feet wider and more welcoming.
3. Don’t Cut Corners on Hurricane Windows
Installing good hurricane windows lets you enjoy Florida indoor/outdoor living while protecting your home from high winds.
4. Go Modular
Modular furniture isn’t just beautiful, for condo living its practical: it goes up the elevator!
5. Mix Antiques and Modern
A modern apartment gets color, personality and character by incorporating antique and vintage pieces such as lighting, accessories and furniture pieces.
6. Dark Wood Doesn’t Paint Well
Dark wood can be painted white if it’s proper wood. But dark wood with joints, caulking and other problems can’t be properly painted white.
Kevin removed all the dark wood in this room and created a home office for his clients, which doubles as a conference room. Kevin used a dining table as the desk and the TV can be used for presentations. The storage area below the TV is for office storage including a fax machine, electronics, and paper storage.
7. Soffits Provide a Cover-Up
Many condos can’t have recessed ceilings, so soffits can be installed to add ambient lights and hide electrical wires.
8. Shattered Glass Lets the Light In
Tempered glass that is shattered lets the light in while protecting bathroom privacy.
