Speakeasy Basement Bar in East Cobb

Speakeasy Basement Bar in East Cobb

Recently we wrapped up a fantastic basement East Cobb’s Bishop’s Green Neighborhood. Initially, it was a conventional basement you see in many Marietta homes. However, Atlanta Curb Appeal changed it into a cozy speakeasy full of antiques, using recycled and reclaimed materials. It was not the first project for this creative homeowner. Last year, Atlanta Curb Appeal renovated his kitchen and master bathroom. For this project, the client consulted with designer Becky van der Maten. Her creative insight with ideas, colors, and interior décor layout was amazingly helpful in the process.

Coming down the new staircase, the first thing one sees is the show-stopping steampunk balustrade. Using scrap metal collected from garage sales and flea markets over several years, the dark metal pieces now resemble a deconstructed industrial work of art. Honestly, Avi and Andy worked together from beginning to end to make the machinery inspired stairwell a reality.

Second up on the list was a new wine cellar. Beautifully installed shiplapped walls and ceiling created the perfect space to store wine. The clients are budding wine aficionados and as such decided an investment of a small unique cellar would add value to their home. Reclaimed wood for the walls was sourced from an old dismantled barn in Tennessee. The wood color is entirely organic; the only thing Atlanta Curb Appeal had to do was to clean it!

Renovating the basement bathroom was next on the schedule. Floors, shower and fixtures were to be replaced. Also inside the bathroom is a closet that needed some help. The entrance to it was replaced with custom reclaimed wood doors. Then came the big decision; which tile style would work in a space like this? Becky gave them half a dozen options with a unique mix and match of patterns. They decided on a white subway to go with the flower patterned tile wall and a black herringbone floors. Together with the new black industrialized plumbing and features the bathroom is complete.

The newly customized wet bar was next on the schedule. In the original house, the owners had installed a bar, so the plumbing was already there. The only work Atlanta Curb Appeal had to do was to reconfigure the understairs framing to allow for a more significant bar. The crews are very experienced with moving walls and rerouting HVAC ducts and electrical wiring to increase space. The expanded back wall is covered with the new trending corkboard wallpaper. It brings an exciting dynamic to the bar. In keeping with the theme from the wine cellar, the new bar cabinetry was custom made using the reclaimed barn wood.

The new floors installed are gorgeous, old rustic white oak planks with lots of character. The only addition was a moisture barrier and a ¾” plywood layer subfloor over the original concrete. After the floors were installed, a light buffing and a stain brought out the natural glow. For extra protection and longevity, a poly coat was added. The windows and door trim were also replaced to keep everything custom, including the baseboards.

Atlanta Curb Appeal is a boutique contractor and as such is always ready to help out with custom touches. Rustic farmhouse chandeliers were made entirely from scratch using raw materials, including a recycled mantle. The electrical parts used were ordered online. The new lighting is a conversation starter in this speakeasy basement bar. Also added were new charming cedar beams along the ceiling. It does not feel like a typical basement anymore with these custom touches!

Ssshhhhh, the absolute coolest part of this prohibition styled basement renovation is the secret door with shelving in the mechanical room! Sure to be a favorite for adults and children in the years to come.

The clients are getting fabulous feedback about the new basement. It’s perfect for entertainment when friends come over!

Modern Industrial Farmhouse Bathroom in East Cobb

This client found Atlanta Curb Appeal after their last renovation from another contractor turned up less than satisfactory results. After interviewing several companies, they selected us. Their home was about 25 years old, so it was clearly due for a remodel.

Farmhouse Bathrooms East Cobb

We see this a lot in East Cobb, where young couples with kids are moving in and renovating these old traditional homes into brand new modern dwellings. It gets completed in stages. Each year they pick a project, so bit-by-bit, they are slowly getting it all done in style. This time it was the master bathroom’s turn!

Ready to Get Your Free Estimate from Atlanta Curb Appeal? 

To start off, Atlanta Curb Appeal performed a complete demolition of the bathroom space. We gutted the place entirely so that we could rebuild it from scratch. Although some ask if we can do a limited removal of the interior, we have found that doing so increases the chances of leaks and we can’t warranty work like that. Complete gutting also allows for more options, like knocking down an exterior wall for a more prominent window. Gorgeous natural light is hard to beat.

Freestanding Tub Installation East Cobb Marietta

After starting with a clean slate, we installed something we have seen more and more of here in Georgia, and that’s heated floors. Heated floors allow for the luxury of stepping out of the shower on a crisp, wintery day and not getting the chills from a shivery surface. New bathroom installations also allow for some great extras like a shower bench. His and her shower heads were another great new accessory.

See Atlanta Curb Appeal’s Bathroom Gallery Here

The client is a commercial designer by trade, so she was able to grasp and, in some cases, directly purchase precisely what she wanted style-wise. She chose the fantastic lighting fixture above the freestanding tub, and the beautiful wood and granite mixed vanity with black farmhouse-style faucets. The barn door entry was quite a find! She discovered it at an antique store. Admittedly, it was quite beaten up and dirty. We pulled the glass off, cleaned it up, stained it, and then we put it all back together. She talentedly selected most everything; we merely followed her drawings and wishes. Since she is a designer, she has a keen attention to detail. Many things had to be custom made, which takes more time and effort. The results, though, are breathtaking and worth it!

Finally, one new thing about this renovation was the squared framed shower doors. This upcoming style is becoming more popular on Pinterest and Houzz. Very few glass door companies produce them. They are custom doors and require a more significant expense and wait time for manufacture.

Their feelings post-renovation are ecstatic. They are super happy and love using their new bathroom. It’s magazine worthy!

Epic East Cobb Bathroom Renovation Sparks Serenity

Epic East Cobb Bathroom Renovation Sparks Serenity

A few years ago, we were contacted to update an East Cobb bathroom. Through the conversation, we discovered that mutual friends suggested that Atlanta Curb Appeal could help with their needed remodel. The big issue plaguing their space was that the bathroom was dated and not at all serving their needs.

See our Full Bathroom Renovation Gallery here.

Ultimately, the dilemma was that their linen closet was expansive and made the rest of the bathroom diminutive in comparison. A colossal jacuzzi bathtub took up the remaining floor space. Without a doubt, a complete overhaul was the solution. The budget would be in the $20-$30K range.

After a total demolition, we began to rebuild. The final results were astounding!

While this bathroom was actually finished a few years ago, people still come over to look at it! The owner is a photographer and obviously has an excellent eye for design and fantastic taste. She hand-selected everything from start to finish.

Currently, we are in talks about coming back and doing the laundry and mud room. We can’t wait to share it once it’s complete!

Gorgeous Sunroom and Magnificent Master Bath From Thin Air!

Gorgeous Sunroom and Magnificent Master Bath From Thin Air!

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is a reality.” Yoko Ono

Adding a sunroom can have two benefits. One is creating value to the homeowners through increased space for enjoying the outdoors without the weather; the other is a boost to their property value. Reports vary as to the exact number, but it is suggested there is a 60–80% return on investment when adding a sunroom.

For this West Cobb family, more space was the goal. The family has small children, and also their mother had taken residence with them. Instead of moving to a bigger house, a re-working of their existing floor plan was the answer. They chose Atlanta Curb Appeal because of recommendations from an East Cobb Moms Facebook group.

The first phase of the project was building the addition. Atlanta Curb Appeal began by framing out the walls and ceiling while leaving space for the huge new windows. Walls and floor installation were next. The clients selected an easy-to-clean tile that stays cool in the summer. To keep energy costs at a minimum, Atlanta Curb Appeal added insulation to the floors, walls, and ceiling. The clients chose a gorgeous, gentle shade of blue for the interior, a color that reminded them of their trips to the beach. Finally, the installation of electricity and HVAC venting completed this large, sunny space.

image1-1

Part two was making changes to the original floor plan; the main living room had a high vaulted ceiling. By dividing the space in half, an entire new space was created upstairs. Two windows were removed from around the fireplace. One window space was transformed into a useful, built-in bookcase with an outlet at the bottom for the TV cable and router wiring. The other turned into a patio door to the outside. Crown molding was added to the bookcase and door to match the rest of the house.

Now, the family had usable living space above the living room, which was to become a new master bedroom with added closet and a full master bath!

The shower was completely designed by the clients. They wanted a very particular marble tile layout, which the crews, through collaboration, were able to install successfully. Atlanta Curb Appeal is very proud of their custom tile crew; they performed beyond the clients’ wildest expectations. Polished marble tops the new vanity: a stunningly beautiful, white, 2cm. Carrera. Atlanta Curb Appeal’s crew also added a small cabinet by the shower. This phase was most challenging as all new plumbing had to be built and installed.

When we asked the client how she felt about the new space, she replied, “We LOVE every inch of it. Mom is living in our original master on the main floor and has her own sunroom and space. Now we can be upstairs with our babies, and we don’t have this empty, gaping, two-story living room. We love that no space is wasted!”

Dramatic Bathroom & Closet Remodel

This dramatic transformation of this bathroom renovation came together after a lot of planning and designing of the existing space. The old room was functional but did not use the whole space to the maximum capacity.

By breaking everything down to the studs and reconfiguring the space, we were able to create a better flow between the areas and create a much bigger walk-in closet.

Closet

One of the client’s top priorities was to create a bigger closet space. We were able to expand the existing closet into the empty attic space above the garage, adding a metal beam to support the roof and a post to support the long span beam. The client also requested to move the washer and dryer upstairs and we managed to stack it in the corner of the closet connecting all of the necessary plumbing. New lights were installed in the ceiling and a custom-made wooden closet system was built to optimally fit the space and meet their needs.

After demolishing the entire space, it was much easier to redesign and plan the new space.

By opening the walls, we were able to see the structure and figure out which walls can be removed and where we will need supports. While we agreed on the new location of all the fixtures, it was just a matter of  the floors and re-plumbing everything. Then we ran electrical to all the areas where we decided to locate lights , switches and outlets.

After closing the walls with drywall and putting back the subfloor, we installed a floor heating system and tiled the space. We suggested a few tile patterns that can go well with the selected tile and the one the customer chose looks amazing.

The shower got a lot more attention because we wanted it to be the focal point in the center of the space. This is why we decided to build it with two tiled walls and two full glass walls.

By having two-sides glass, the space was opened up and the two areas of the bathroom, the tub and the vanities, were connected. The client wanted to use mixed materials to created an organic and inorganic combination. As such, we combined porcelain tile, with marble, pebbles and wood to create a spa feel. A long soap niche created in the middle of the tiled wall, and a wood-look bench was placed on the other tiled wall.

Large, white wavy tiles were selected to go on the walls with no gap between them and very little white grout, creating the effect of full wavy white walls. The brown accent tile was placed in the niche shelve, bench and on the ceiling, complementing the other woodwork in the bathroom.

The water fixtures were selected and purchased by the client which included a complete set of shower heads, jets and a hand spray valve, all in one panel.

In addition to these, we suggested to add another 4 shower heads on a separate valve that created the waterfall effect from the ceiling. This required special plumbing techniques to make sure the water flow and pressure would support such a design.

The frameless shower glass doors were special order and have a unique coating on it called “shower guard” by Guardian that comes with a lifetime warranty. This coating is like magic and everyone’s dream. after taking a shower, you can leave the glass wet and foggy without the need to clean it each time. 10 minutes later, the glass is all perfectly clean again with no streaks or water stains.

The barn door was custom-made from old reclaimed barn wood. We combined the wood with metal panels to stick with the mixed-material theme. We then stained the cedar and oiled the barn wood to bring these beautiful colors out and protect it from moisture.

newborn natural organic

The door serves dual purpose. when its closed, it’s used for privacy in the toilet. When open, it covers the towel storage that was built into the wall.

A long vanity and tower were custom-made by Fancy Woodworks LLC. The client chose a white marble countertop to complement the color schemes of white, grey and brown. The stone complements the pebbles on the shower floor and the marble used on the fireplace.

Our client finished of the bathroom with eclectic furnishings, original art and some plants to give the space the absolute feeling of beauty and relaxation while taking a shower or soaking in the free standing tub.

When the Bathroom is Too Small

Updating this East Cobb bathroom provided for Atlanta Curb Appeal several challenges. Initially, a wall separating the vanity and shower split the layout of the master bathroom; this footprint made the bathroom feel tight.

BarnDoor2EastCobb

In the first client meeting, they examined together the family’s needs and goals; the quote requested was for a remodeling of the two bathrooms, the master and the kids. After a walkthrough, Atlanta Curb Appeal discovered the master bath would need a full demolition and a complete shuffle of the plumbing, with the shower moved sideways and the toilet placed on the other sidewall. This re-organization of pipes would prove to be more difficult when they started to cut the concrete slab. A final touch to this bathroom renovation would be the installation of a sliding barn door entry. The door opening had to move and relocated in a way that it facing the center of the vanity. The client liked the ideas presented, and work started a week later.

BathroomRemodelEastCobb

Significant changes to the master bathroom included the addition of a free standing double vanity and a huge shower. A beautiful quartz countertop was selected and added to the top of the vanity. This light colored quartz appears again on the shower curb and bench, providing harmony between the two pieces.

The flooring is the latest in porcelain tile sophistication. At first glance, it appears to be made of gorgeous natural wood. In a moisture-prone area like the bathroom, this is the resilient choice. The mimicry result looks amazing in this space.

Industrial and vintage hanging fixtures were the selected style for the lighting. In the original design, however, the homeowners selected wall-mounted hardware. Since there were a lot of existing plumbing inside this wall, this placement would no longer work. The clients were able to find a pendant lighting alternative. It was a last-minute change, and it worked perfectly.

Another improvement was the mirror choice on the wall above the vanity. Big half wall mirrors have become passe for bathrooms, an 80s style that clients are looking to get rid of. Separate framed mirrors are the current trend in bathroom design.

DoubleVanityBathroomRemodel

Atlanta Curb Appeal performed all of the labor for this project: demolition, plumbing, electrical installation, vinyl wainscoting, painting, and installation of the barn door. The vanity was a unique custom unit from Fancy Woodworks, in Kennesaw, which the firm felt did an extraordinary job.

When asked about the client’s reaction to the final product, owner Avi Moyal shared, “They are super excited and happy about it. They even sent us a text.” (See below.)

BathroomRenovationEastCobb

The decision to remodel the bathroom of one East Cobb family’s master bathroom wasn’t simply because they wanted to upgrade the hardware. No, with two little children to manage, the size of their bathroom was becoming a constraint to their busy family lifestyle. More bathroom vanity counter space was needed, along with a better solution for closet space.

BEFORE PICTURE

BeforeBathroomACABeforeBathroomEastCobbMakeover

While magazines and Pinterest are perfect for remodeling inspiration, visionary minded contractors can offer alternatives, which are more functional or financially viable. Breaking down the walls and starting from scratch was the best option for this remodeling project. Excellent communication, mutual expectations, and specific deadlines provide the framework for a great experience between contractor and client.

 

BathroomRemodelingEastCobbACA

Vintage is the new modern in renovation design, and this updated bathroom captures it beautifully. The clients picked out double hanging bathroom mirrors over traditional style cabinets. The flooring was a new style of porcelain from Home Depot designed to look like wood. Porcelain tile is harder than ceramic and offers greater design flexibility. The clay used to make porcelain tile is more refined and purified than ceramic. Obviously, this is a better choice overall than wood flooring when so much moisture is present, especially when the little ones take a bath!

SubwayTileBathroomRenovationEastCobb

The bathtub was framed with a marble subway tile in the 3×6 size. Subway tile has exploded in popularity recently with good reason: they are easy to clean and bring order with a smooth repeating pattern. Installing a new curved shower rod is an easy upgrade that offers more space for showering.

 

CurvedShowerEastCobb

For wall color, the client chose a shade of gray from Sherwin Williams. The gray color worked well for this bathroom, complemented by the white tile and black chains hanging from the mirrors.

The finishing touch to this renovation was a barn door entrance to the bathroom. Atlanta Curb Appeal has seen a big increase in the request for barn-style doors in the past two years.

Enlarging the bathroom required the removal of two closets, which were then reconfigured with access from the master bedroom space. Aesthetically, it has completely changed the look of the master bedroom.

Atlanta Curb Appeal Owner Avi Moyal shared his comments about their experience:

“I guess we did something right if they called us back a fourth time, after renovating their basement, deck, and kitchen. Our clients had been talking about doing this bathroom for a while. I think Atlanta Curb Appeal nailed it. They love the end results.”

Gorgeous East Cobb Porch Installation

Recently we had the pleasure of installing a new screen porch and deck in East Cobb/ Marietta. Atlanta Curb Appeal standards are high when completing a porch installation. Safety, quality of materials and design are the main focus when planning a client’s outdoor oasis that will be a showcase piece to enjoy for years to come.

We asked Avi some questions about the project below.

Gorgeous Porch Install

Did they have a porch before or was this project from scratch?
No, they did not have a deck, but they did have a porch.

What did Atlanta Curb Appeal do exactly?
First we built the screen porch walls and installed a matching shingle roof. Second, we added a lower deck and a new set of stairs. At this point, we took the time to reinforce the old deck up to code, per inspections. Then we enclosed the area underneath allowing for added storage.

Porch East Cobb Installation

Look at the view!

Did you do more than a back porch?
Atlanta Curb Appeal added a front portico and replaced the front door. We enjoy installing porticos; the transformation is always astonishing. Then we renovated two bathrooms in the home.

Did you do any electrical upgrades?
We added outlets, new outdoor floodlights and new can lights on the back porch.

Why did they decide to do this project?
They wanted to add a covered porch and extend their deck space so they could enjoy outdoor seating while covered from the sun and protected from mosquitos. We also added wiring for an outdoor TV. It’s the perfect package.

How to Enclose Screen Porch

East Cobb Screen Porch

How did they find you?
Word of mouth. We have happy clients in their subdivision that recommended us.

What is the client planning for this new space?
The porch is mainly for the entertainment of kids and friends.

What was the biggest obstacle?
No obstacles. All permitting inspections passed the first time, and all work was finished in within budget and timelines.

How many days did it take?
The porch and deck project took just under four weeks. The small bathroom took a week and a half, and the master bathroom took three weeks. The portico took less than a week, including inspections. We did these projects in parallel and completed all work in about two months.

What did the clients think about Atlanta Curb Appeal?
They are so happy with the final results! They had a party to show off the work to their neighbors, and we’ve already started another project in this subdivision.

Bathroom Remodel East Cobb GA Atlanta Curb Appeal

This month on the blog we present our latest bathroom remodel project in East Cobb, Georgia we completed recently. We explore the ‘big picture’ and discuss the ‘pros and cons’ of medium sized renovations to a home.

How did they find you?

They found us through a neighbor that we had done work for.

What made them choose Atlanta Curb Appeal?
They had checked quotes from a few contractors and decided to go with us based on recommendations from their neighbor, plus our price and the design solutions I gave them.

Was there a significant amount of demolition? How many days for each stage?
The demolition required two days and the overall project was completed in 2 weeks.

Quad Head Shower Installation

Quad Head Shower Installation

Tell us more about the Quad-Head Shower. Did the customers pick this one? What are the benefits of this type of shower? 
The clients selected all the plumbing fixtures themselves. We have been seeing the Quad-Head Showerhead more and more recently. It is much more complicated than standard head installations. There is a whole new system of small pipes that needs to be created above each showerhead. People select these modern showerheads because they are looking for an amazing rainfall shower experience.

Pebbled Floor Close Up

How happy are the clients with the final project?
They are very happy! In fact everyday (after the demolition stage) when they got home from work, they would express their amazement on our daily progress plus the clean meticulous work of our crew.

Who designed shower?
We consulted on the structure and layout of the shower and the client selected the tile. We recommended the location of the bench and soap niche. And how the tile should work best on these walls.

Free Standing Tub

Free Standing Tub Modern Bathroom

What were your favorite parts of their bathroom upgrade?
The shower tile, the fixtures and the stunning free standing tub. The pebbled floor is great too!

What would you like to convey to people who are thinking about a bathroom renovation?  What is the big picture that customers should take into consideration?
Visualization is key. If a client can communicate the final design they are aiming for then we are halfway there. We are also happy to consult to help our clients get the answers to some of these questions:

  • Which walls needs to stay or go?
  • Where do you prefer your new fixtures to be located?
  • What materials do you want included? Do you want a soap niche? How about a custom shower bench?
  • What about special instructions? Do you have a preference on the heights of the faucets or mirrors?

Each step is connected so the sooner we know the design, the better we can prepare for each stage of electrical and plumbing and the placement of the final product. This is critical before we close the walls back up.

Another thing we like clients to keep in mind is that after demolition, things may look different to you and alternative ideas may spring up! Flexibility is important because occasionally you may find out what you wanted to do is not possible after all because of how a joist is running or the way a support structure is lined up internally behind the wall. Everything is possible of course, but sometimes the cost of shifting things around does not make financial sense.

Modern and complicated plumbing fixtures are beautiful to the eye and can sometimes save money in the long run with their increased efficiency. Yet sometimes they do not come packaged with all the other parts required for installation. Additional costs might be needed to get these fixtures up and running.

Renovating any part of your home is an undertaking and we encourage clients to be patient and to trust the process. Have confidence that everything will be elegant and beautiful in the end! We follow the same containment procedures with each job, which is first to cover the floors and separate areas with sealed nylon and zippered entrances then at the end of each day we clean up after ourselves. Then every new morning we set up covers again. Note, there will be dust in some areas though, areas you are not used to having dust before, but this is simply part of remodeling. We sincerely do our best to keep it as clean as possible at each stage.

We hope we have been able to thoroughly explain the renovation process from the point of view of the homeowner. If you are considering a new bathroom renovation please check out Atlanta Curb Appeal’s numerous detailed online reviews and contact us for a free estimate at 770-778-1172.

Stunning! Our Latest Huge Renovation in Dunwoody

This month Atlanta Curb Appeal wrapped up a major renovation in Dunwoody, Georgia. The end results were stunning! We interviewed Avi Moyal (owner) about the project.

ModernBathroomRenovationDunwoody

How did they find Atlanta Curb Appeal?
This young couple found me online. They collected bids from several contractors and selected Atlanta Curb Appeal to handle their first home remodel. When I asked them (near the end) what made them pick us, they responded that we were the only ones that foresaw future problems and elements that might not work together and that we seemed like we would actually be able to deliver the results they wanted. Secondly, the couple felt like we offered the best design solutions and that we conveyed the impression that we knew what we were talking about compared to the other guys.

bathroomatlantacurbappeal

What steps had to be taken to complete the job?
First we gutted the couple’s master bathroom plus another hall bathroom. Then we removed the old hardwoods and carpets. After this demolition, we basically started from the ground up and rebuilt both baths. We replaced all plumbing in the master bathroom, under the floor and in the walls, it all had to be relocated to fit the new design of the room.

MasterBathroomRemodelAtlantaCurbAppeal

Furthermore in the master, we added a new larger shower area along with new tile, frameless glass doors and a long wide soap niche. Plus we installed a new air tub, new vanities, new fixtures and finally new tile on the floors.

ModernBathtubInstalledAtlantaCurbAppeal

Did you encounter any challenges?
The master bath was a formidable project. It took a bit more time than we expected because all the walls and corners were off, they were neither straight nor parallel. It took extra efforts to make the tile lines appear symmetrical. The original flooring was also off-balance and had extreme “sagging” issues. To compensate we had to level it with three different techniques to get it to our level of perfection.

NewfloorsnewtubnewshowerAtlantaCurbAppeal

What other rooms did you remodel?
We painted the interior; bedrooms and living room with very modern colors that the client picked, and it turned out beautifully. In the kitchen, we added a new backsplash, painted the cabinets and walls and replaced the hardware. For the living room, we added new tile around the fireplace. Also throughout the house, we installed new-engineered hardwood floors on the main level.

What do the clients think of Atlanta Curb Appeal’s work?
The clients are overjoyed with the outcome. As you can see from the pictures, the results are like something out a magazine! Again and again, customers find our construction to be well done and solid. Our attention to detail has many clients coming back for more projects after they experience the quality of our work. We are so grateful we get to help homeowners’ turns their dreams into reality.
