East Cobb Home Interior Renovation
Where was this project and how did they find you?
East Cobb, Georgia. They found us on a private East Cobb mothers group Facebook page.
What was their kitchen like before?
The kitchen was completely different; it was small and tight with a totally different layout.
Share about the kitchen remodeling process.
First we gutted it, then took off the stamped ceilings and did a lot of re-wiring for the can lighting. We then installed new smooth ceiling drywall. We also took down the whole wall between the dining room and the kitchen and relocated all the AC vents and returns. In this process we had to do a lot of relocating of electrical outlets and switches too. The gas line for the gas range had to be moved as well. Above the stove we cut into the exterior brick for hood venting. The client picked out all the cabinets and faucets.
Tell us about the new lighting in the kitchen.
Can lighting is becoming more fashionable and we have been installing more of these flushed lighting systems each year. These new lighting kits are energy efficient LED lighting. Can lighting keeps the ceiling nice, clean and smooth white.
Would you say that kitchen islands are becoming common these days?
People love kitchen islands. For many homes the kitchen is the new center of entertainment.
What else did you do to the home?
We did the whole main level of the house and half of the basement. We widened four sections of the house to create a modern open floor plan with wide openings between each area. One of the main areas we exposed was between the stairs going up the bedrooms and down into the basement. We added a railing for safety. Finished the basement with drywall and new carpet. While we were down there we added a bathroom, air conditioning and painted the interior too.
What was the hardest part of the project?
The floors were installed during the most humid days of the year and we had to wait longer for the polyurethane to dry between each coat; which slowed us down. The owner was about to give birth to her 3rd child and we had to beat the schedule!
What has the customer said about the project?
They are very happy with the end result and have already recommended us to others!
What did they say about their experience with Atlanta Curb Appeal? What is their favorite part?
Basically they shared, “it was a pleasure to work with Avi the owner because of his amazing level of communication and calm spirit, even through the hard parts of the project.’
They loved the way everything is now open and the new flow of their house. It’s amazing how much tranquility a renovated home can bring to the family dynamic. The kids adore the new basement playroom.
