Refresh

Kitchen $15,000 • Can be DIY, though it’s still possible to involve a designer/ contractor • Repaint existing cabinetry • New door/drawer hardware • Update some lighting fixtures • New countertops: laminate, stone or wood (save money by doing a DIY install, or shop remnant slabs at granite/ stone yards). By the way, did you know you can paint your existing laminate tops? • Add fresh paint on the walls • Add glass or stone backsplash (Save money by shopping at big box stores, outlet stores or the clearance aisles of specialty stores)

Bath $8,000 – $13,000 • DIY if you are handy or consult with a designer/contractor • Plumbing stays in the same place • Replace fixtures with off-the-shelf items from big box stores, outlet stores or the clearance aisles of specialty stores.

• Upgrade toilet to chair height and better flush rating • Upgrade to better quality plumbing fixtures, like copper and bronze, which will last much longer than off-the-shelf options • New tile flooring: porcelain or stone in a pattern like herringbone or with accents of glass or mosaic pieces • New semi-custom vanity cabinets with extra details: painted, distressed or glazed finishes, bump out the sink, add legs or feet for a furniture look, more drawers with customized storage

• New backsplash

KITCHEN WINNER

ST

LAURIE BURNS

LAURIE BURNS DESIGN Atlanta native Laurie Burns, owner of Laurie Burns Design, pulled together this winning 1910 farmhouse kitchen renovation by melding

elements of copper and stainless steel, soft-hued subway tile and vintage lighting, reflective of her affinity for mixing old and new design items. The combination of green accents and ontrend bohemian vibes hints at her passion for floral design. Laurie finds inspiration in many sources, from movie sets to vintage styles to the fashion industry. “I love getting lost in so many resources and vendors while hunting for the perfect piece—whether it’s furniture, tile, paint colors, fabric or lighting,” she says. “And I love seeing my clients get as excited as I am.” Burns brought together plenty of “perfect pieces” to create this timeless space.

KATHY TONNER

Photography by (left) Sawyer Photography, hair & makeup by Donna Martin; (right) Gregg Willett Photography, photography by Gregg Willett.

SUNDOG DESIGN STUDIO During her winning kitchen project, Kathy Tonner, ASID, RID, founder and principal of SunDog Design Studio, LLC, encountered a challenge frequently met by designers—the divergent tastes and needs of the couple for whom she designed the space. She explains that one loves to cook and appreciates a modern style, while the other loves to socialize and prefers a traditional look. Tonner’s resulting classic, fresh kitchen design was achieved through clever reimagining of the space, including a relocation of the kitchen to the existing den and converting the original kitchen to a keeping room with a butler’s pantry.

Tonner says she enjoys problem solving and “taking gutted ‘bare bones’ and then creating a beautiful, livable finished project.” Thanks to the reworking of this kitchen, both clients’ needs were met—the couple can both cook and socialize with guests in their new space.

CUSTOM DWELLINGS Stephanie Ives, AKBD, vice president and lead designer of Custom Dwellings, Inc., explains her design philosophy:

Photography by (bottom left) Sawyer Photography, hair & makeup by Donna Martin; (top and bottom right) Cira Photography, photography by Amy Morris.

“I love getting to know my clients and understanding what makes them unique, so we can incorporate that into their home. I want to know that you need a special shelf for your grandmother’s mixing bowl or that morning light is important as you start your day.” And, in this case, her clients’ needs definitely drove the design. Not only do these homeowners entertain regularly and possess a substantial wine and liquor collection, one partner also enjoys largebatch cooking and canning, so a massive island proved a critical component of the new kitchen. “There was a lot to accommodate behind the scenes to make it all come together seamlessly.” CustomDwellings.com AtlantaHomeImprovement.com

JENNIFER WARD-WOODS BARBARA ELLIOTT

Design principals Barbara Elliott and Jennifer Ward-Woods, of Decorating Den Interiors/Sisters and Company, solved the awkward flow of their client’s master suite by flipping the closet and bathroom to create a modern bath space with traditional lines. “The real challenge was to create a spacious feel to the smaller new bath,” says Barbara. To open up the space, an archway between the slipper-shaped tub and the closet helped create the illusion of abundance; then the designers selected finishes that would impart a luxurious, but clean, feel. This transformation came about using the sisters’ proven design process: make it functional, fun and fabulous. “Each

completed project needs an element of ‘wow,’” Jennifer enthuses— and with the Florence chandelier, molding and arches, this bathroom meets that expectation.

Photography by (left) Sawyer Photography, hair & makeup by Donna Martin; photos courtesy of (right) J. Thomas Designs, photography by Home Tour America—Josh Vick.

“I enjoy helping clients expand their vision by introducing items they wouldn’t normally think of using,” she says. An expert at finding unique pieces, Jenny’s design savvy developed during her career path from art student to owner of a pottery company and then to a home decor store offering design services. Her eclectic style can be seen in this winning bathroom, which combines classic marble flooring and relaxing gray cabinetry with highlights like the harlequin window above the bath and the repetition of marble with accents around the shower door. “The beauty of the world—down to the smallest detail—really motivates me every day.”  JThomasDesigns.com

Free-Standing Bathtubs: Are They Right For Your Bathroom Remodel? One of the most popular bathroom design trends is the use of a free-standing tub. While this design feature is beautiful and classic, expect it to add several thousand dollars to the cost of your bathroom renovation. Free-standing tubs are deeper than an average tub, can be placed in different locations in a bathroom and can give your bathroom an antique or a modern feel. Location One of the first things to consider before installing a free-standing tub is where you would like to put it. Obviously, a larger space can accommodate a larger tub. But the advantage of these tubs is that they can be installed almost anywhere—you no longer have to place them against a wall.

Budget Buster?

• Beautiful Showroom Filled

Free-standing tubs come in many designs, sizes and materials, depending on the style you prefer and your budget. Be prepared— the price may give you sticker shock, as most are in the $2,000 to $5,000 range. Of course, you will not have to spend money on materials and labor to build a deck around a free-standing tub, but that will only save you a few hundred dollars. You should also factor in the cost of demolition, a plumber, a carpenter (if the ceiling below the bathroom will need to be removed to access the pipes) and new flooring.

Plumb It! Plumbing is a big factor (and cost) in changing to a free-standing tub. The plumbing for these tubs is visible, unlike that of other tubs. The drain and water pipes must be run up from beneath the floor, so you’ll have to consider how accessible and involved it is to reroute the plumbing. You should also consider how easy or difficult this will be while deciding on where to put your tub. There may be a lot of cutting and drilling through beams in order to relocate the plumbing. In most cases, the plumbing to retrofit a standard tub to a free-standing tub ranges between $2,000 to $3,000.
