- Flippers had selected cheap materials for the original remodel of this home that didn't live up to this San Francisco couple’s contemporary vision.
- The confusing layout of the home created kinks in the flow, with an open concept space for the dining room, kitchen and living room that offered exquisite views but conflicted with the couple’s desire to create defined spaces.
- Cramped was an understatement, from the low ceilings in the foyer and master bedroom to the closet-sized shower and awkwardly laid out master bathroom.
- The staircase to the second floor was tight and dark, with shallow stairs and a low-ceiling transition into the hallway that proved challenging to descend without bumping your head.
- Vinyl planking was replaced with large porcelain concrete tiles to correct the flooring substrate, and custom lighting and refined materials were used to reflect modern luxury.
- We used a custom TV cabinet and bio fuel fireplace to better define the living room space while showcasing the picturesque views, creating an intimate socializing area with a coffee table and swivel chairs. The TV is installed on a motorized lift to allow viewing from the main living room and new group area.
- In the foyer, we balanced the low ceiling height with a wood ceiling application, adding art and a custom table that transitions into a bench to enhance the beauty of the space.
- We redesigned the staircase with the correct tread depth and rise for a smoother descent and used cascading chandeliers and custom metal and wire railing to pull visual interest, invite more light and open up the space.
- We added a custom floating concrete sink and cabinet with hidden storage in the powder room, moving the toilet and adding a slatted wood screen for privacy.
- We removed the bathtub and relocated the shower near the window to open up the master bathroom, creating enough space for two vanities—a feature the couple loves!
