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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

Massive Makeover in East Cobb

Massive Makeover In East Cobb

New clients find Atlanta Curb Appeal in different ways, and we are honored to say a good number by referral and word of mouth. Recently, this East Cobb family had watched their friends and neighbors five houses down wrap up a remodeling project with Atlanta Curb Appeal. After seeing the final results, they decided it was time to go forward with us on their dream kitchen renovation.

At first, we did a lot of brainstorming with the client. The atmosphere was fun and light as we worked through the planning process. In the beginning stage, before the first hammer falls, there is typically a level of excitement as we explore all the possibilities. It’s like having a new house to play with if your contractor has real insight and vision.

This project was going to be a good-sized renovation, with many moving parts. Adding new rooms to a home creates extra work versus a one-room improvement. Together, we agreed on a timeline and budget and then got started.

Step one of renovations began with a huge demolition. Dismantling the kitchen, the powder room, and the ceilings upstairs. After the dust had settled, our framing crews came in. In addition to the simple room location changes, a few new areas were being created.

The original style of the kitchen was closed off and constrictive; on one side was a bathroom next to the living room. However, to make this space bigger, we had to expand. There was a quite an extensive framework of plumbing, HVAC vents, and electrical that we had to reroute to accomplish this. Next up was a new laundry room on the attic side space. Then a powder room was going where the former closet space was, near the back stairs and garage. Once we completed the framing, electrical and plumbing, we sliced the hardwood floors to patch all areas affected and sanded the whole main level to match.

To maintain the calm and serene energy of a modern gray kitchen, we installed new white shaker-style cabinets, a new island, and new pantry cabinets. Over the stove, the new stainless hood complimented the pale shade of the subway tile. Gorgeous new granite countertops were also added. They picked these out along with the granite backsplash in our showroom. Never underestimate the power of new lighting setups in a renovation. The new can lights and dimmers now create an amazing atmosphere.


As we were completing the kitchen, they decided they wanted a mini bar, too. Adding a few cabinets and matching granite top made this little addition perfect for entertaining. A new wine cooler finished the area with a custom fit into the new cabinets.

We are proud to say this is one of our most beautiful renovations in East Cobb. The transformation was astonishing, and the clients are thrilled with our ideas and the outcome. They were fantastic to work with throughout the project; They were so patient and fun to be with during the whole process.

Superb Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel in East Cobb, Georgiaeastcobbkitchenremodelingkitchenrenovationseastcobb

When this East Cobb family called Atlanta Curb Appeal, they were looking for a kitchen and master bathroom redesign. The original kitchen was cramped, and it needed some expanding. Early on, it was decided that removal of the adjoining powder room and integration of the space would be the solution to creating an enlarged kitchen floor plan. However, this was no small undertaking, as the majority of the plumbing had to be re-routed as part of the process.


Step two of the kitchen remodel was a complete reconfiguration of the cabinets. Reusing some of the existing boxes saved part of the client’s budget. Atlanta Curb Appeal custom built new shaker-style doors for the cabinets and beautiful new fronts for all of the drawers. The new layout easily increased the client’s storage space by 50%.

One exciting part of the redesign was turning the old wet bar into a cabinet to hold their home beer keg. A beautiful custom island, hand built by Atlanta Curb Appeal, was the next step of the renovation. It is now the centerpiece of the kitchen, along with the new, stunning quartz countertops. Bigger windows and well-placed lighting now make the kitchen bright and contemporary.

The bathroom was up next for renovation due to its smaller size. A blank slate was needed, so the entire space had to be gutted to free up more room for the shower and toilet areas. Atlanta Curb Appeal then removed the old Jacuzzi tub and installed a new, gorgeous, freestanding one in its place (see picture below).


The client hand-selected the new, attractive bathroom porcelain flooring. It has the appearance of a hardwood but is significantly more durable. The shower hardware is also very modern. Its unique design fits perfectly with the room’s updated style.


This project was indeed a huge success! The client has already asked Atlanta Curb Appeal to return and refinish their screen porch. They also recommended them to their friends and neighbors, which resulted in projects that Atlanta Curb Appeal is working on now!
