This Washington DC home remodeling project is a great example of how carefully selected design elements can transform an interior. The program here is to renovate the interior of an entire two bedroom condo in Washington DC. Although, remodeling the kitchen and bathroom is a key driver for the project, the client made a smart decision to upgrade architectural detailing that will give character and refinement to what had been a fairly featureless interior. Here is the dining area as we found it:
In addition to the kitchen and bath, the owner is personalizing her space by investing in crown & base moldings, replacing hollow core doors with solid wood, adding casements at doorways and trim molding around all the windows.
We are only a few weeks into the project, but you can already see what sort of transformation is about to take place.
Neither the kitchen or bath are far enough along to say much about yet. Give it a few more weeks. The point is to note how the addition of visual refinements is already transforming the interior space.
