For the past 25 years, Remarkable Renovations has been transforming lovely old houses with structural integrity into exquisite homes tailored to the owners’ individual taste, lifestyle, and budget. Each home is enhanced with the finest in luxury comforts, while preserving the oldworld charm and splendor of the original design. With great attention to detail, all amenities, kitchens, and baths are updated and transformed into delightful living spaces. The projects begin as a partnership between the client and Remarkable Renovations. The result is a relationship and personal connection providing the synergy necessary to produce homes perfected to the clients’ specifications.
Remarkable Renovations operates as a team. All subcontractors are carefully selected and considered to be the best in the industry. Relying upon years of experience, the team works together to enhance each project as it develops. A renovation, no matter how well planned, is a work in progress and—based on circumstances that present themselves during the process—new and exciting elements are discovered as the project moves toward completion.
Remarkable Renovations owner Debbi Buchalski coordinates the entire project and personally reviews all plans and selections with her clients. Debbi’s forte is creating an atmosphere of informal elegance suited for a more relaxed way of life. She strives to transform each home to meet the clients’ needs and sense of style. Designed from a women’s perspective, each home is fashioned
for today’s more casual lifestyle. Specializing in vacation homes, popular design elements include great rooms with open kitchens, outdoor entertainment areas, and strategically placed laundry facilities, designed to embrace large families and guests. Discriminating design choices enable the host and hostess to enjoy the company of their guests and remain at the center of activity.
but emerging artists as well. In addition, she is committed to showing the works of local artists who have ties to the South Jersey/Philad elphia area. By being selective in what she brings to the gallery, Cooper creates a special relationship between the artists and her customers — like a matchmaker using her skills to know what art piece will suit and please her customer. According to Cooper, “This is a small, but close community that expects unique art whether they come in just to look and enjoy or to buy.” In addition to individuals looking for help when decorating their homes, realtors and builders may seek the expert eyes of interior design specialist as well. Remarkable Renovations is a perfect example of design and designers intersecting in the business world. Guided by the vision and determination of Debra Buchalski, Remarkable Renovations takes outdated houses (what some see as “teardowns”) and transforms them into elegant and modern beach getaways. In many cases, Remarkable Renovations decorates homes to the last detail — window treatments, accessories, art, and even the sheets and towels. Buchalski knows that some clients are not interested in the minutia of design. They want to move right in and start enjoying their new home without the hassles of decorating it themselves. According to Buchalski, “We let the houses talk to us and develop them into the best possible new homes with old world charm. “When a house “speaks” to Buchalski, she immediately builds a tiger team of experts to help her perform renovating and decorating magic. Currently, Finishing Touch and Remarkable Renovations are working together on their fourth house at the shore. “I was fortunate to work with Finishing Touch on my first project and we’ve enjoyed a great relationship ever since. Their designers are excellent and respond to the unique character of each house with creativity, specific timing, and attention to detail.” By teaming up with experienced and talented people in design and renovation, Buchalski strives to “...preserve the historic splendor of the Jersey Shore... one
