After living in her Kits townhome for more than three decades, our client was craving change. While she was living in a world with a dark filter on the interior of her home, a bright and clean makeover would bring in the light she never knew she needed.
A transformation from top to bottom was necessary and the results made for a nearly
unrecognizable home. Oliver Builders made this one happen.
Before & After Entranceway
Once a traditional staircase and carpeted floors, the foyer soon became the welcoming gesture the home so desperately needed. Replacing the railing with a fresh face of glass and repeated whitewashed oak expanded this entrance to its full potential.

Before & After Living Area

Before & After Kitchen
The kitchen was cut off from the surrounding areas and was asking to be included.
Removing a wall and expanding the kitchen now allows for the perfect wine party. Quartz counters and bright neutrals reflect the style of the rest of the main floor,
complimenting the new open-concept living area.
