Project Spotlight: Renovated Condo in Alexandria
CONDO REMODEL – FINISHES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

For this reason, appliances and lighting were not moved within the home. Instead, unique finishes were used to enhance the space and bring more lighting to the kitchen area.
Vertical grain bamboo cabinets and granite countertops give the kitchen a spacious, elevated feel. Modernized stainless steel appliances tie the space together with a cement farmhouse-style sink adding a unique flavor to the area.
The coffee-bar vanity replaced a floating bar, giving the homeowners more storage space and extra counter space for daily-use items.
Modernizing the master suite bathroom, the original cabinetry was painted a dark espresso brown, new knobs were attached, a custom sized, full-wall wrapping mirror was hung, and “Fairy White” quartz replaced the old cabinet tops.
