Check out the face lift we recently gave this home. The client wanted to add something to the exterior of her home to make it stand out among all the other brick houses in her neighborhood. After talking with the client to get a clear grasp on her vision, we agreed that adding decorative shutters and matching awning would be the best option. Our team got to work creating 3-D renderings and concept drawings, allowing the client see just how the finished design would look. The drawings alone proved the completed project would make a huge impact on the visual interest of the home. When the project was complete, the home looked just as the client envisioned, and now makes a bold statement among all of the similar brick homes on the street!

Choosing the right interior doors for your remodel seems like a small detail, but it really makes a big impact on the look of your finished renovation. Not only do the doors need to be functional for the space, but also need to match the style you have chosen for the rest of the room. Here are a few of the many styles of interior doors available:
Standard doors are the least expensive and most common door used for a residential remodel. These doors usually consist of a plain, flush door mounted on metal hinges at one side of the door frame. Standard doors are usually lightweight with a hollow core, but solid core doors are available as well. These types of doors have a wood veneer or a fiberglass finish that can be stained or painted just about any color you like.
