Family room makeover
- Concord, CA
A small fun project for a family with a limited budget. The client had no desire to spend more than their limited
budget could bear but needed to convert their family room with old carpets and whitewashed walls into a refuge.
Keeping in mind their limited resources, we acted as consultants and made recommendations that they could
carry out fairly easily and inexpensively. No walls were removed and very little demolition was necessary.
Simple moves like replacing the carpet with hardwood flooring, 6" baseboards for more presence, chair rails and
a custom fireplace help bring a more formal presence to the room. The upgraded fireplace provides a focal point
with neutral colors on the walls to complement their furnishings and help tie the room together.
Sometimes simple moves can do more than large elaborate and lavish designs can.
