2680 Roxburgh was purchased by buyers who loved the neighborhood and the floor plan but didn’t love the outdated design and finishes. The real estate agent asked me to meet with the buyers to help with their decision to move forward with the purchase. I let them know that the main issues they had with painting throughout the home, renovation of the kitchen and living areas, the powder room, and the family room were easy updates and could be completed in 3-4 weeks.
The house was very large and had lots of layers of ornate trim throughout that the clients did not love. We were able to overcome the trim objections with a simple paint trick to paint the upper walls and the layers of trim the same color to draw your eye away from the trim. We also neutralized a very pink toned original paint with a more modern soothing color.
We updated the powder room and wet bars with new tile and quartz counters This client loved a more modern art deco design, so we started with removing all of the existing fireplace mantles and replacing them with sleek tile design in the family room and a unique geometric design in the main living area. We painted the built-ins a dark contrasting color and replaced all of the outdated glass shelving with thick wooden shelves to blend in with the built-ins. Adding new modern light fixtures throughout also gave the home a much more modern feel.
The kitchen was already a fantastic layout and just needed a heavy facelift. We painted the kitchen cabinets white and replaced the countertops with a bright white quartz. All new champagne bronze cabinet pulls and faucets were also added. A new hex tile backsplash and new appliances and light fixtures completed this masterpiece kitchen!
