Fabulous House Reno in Smyrna

2019 is here and we at Kolby Construction are so excited to be starting our next whole house renovation for some super clients in Smyrna. We will be updating this blog throughout the project so our followers can watch the transformation. The house will undergo a complete renovation, where we will turn the existing carport into an enlarged kitchen with a separate laundry/mudroom. We will also add a beautiful master bedroom and bathroom, and of course reconfigure some interior walls to create open concept living.

  •  Kitchen Remodeling:  The kitchen is the heart of the home, the place where family gathers to eat, talk, do homework, and entertain.  White shaker cabinetry, black or brushed nickel hardware, farmhouse sinks, are all super popular trends in kitchen remodeling.  Large islands with breakfast bar seating, quartz countertops, pendant lighting and functional cabinet inserts help create the needed space for gathering and entertaining.  Give this gift in 2018, and you’ll be ready for that holiday party next year!

  • Basement Remodeling:  Do you need more space for the kids, for extended family, or a home office?  An unfinished basement could provide the extra needed space for your family.  Turn the space into a large game room, add an extra bedroom and bathroom for guests or possibly the in-laws.  How about a media room with a kitchenette or bar area?  The possibilities are endless!  Next years holiday party would even better with this new space 🙂

How to create a Fabulous Master-Bathroom without a lot of Space: Fall 2018

The beautiful Fall weather is just around the corner!  Can you imagine the orange and red colors, and the crunching of leaves as you walk?  Well….  it’s not quite here yet in the greater Atlanta area, but it will be coming soon!  In the meantime, let’s talk about what’s hot in bathroom remodeling.

If you have a smaller space in your master bathroom, like in the picture above, many people are choosing to eliminate the bathtub and instead opt for a spacious tiled shower.  Pebble mosaics adorn the floor of this shower with a 12×24 marble look tile for the walls and bathroom floor.  The sleek modern double-sink vanity has brushed nickel single handle faucets which are a popular choice.  Custom framed mirrors that match the trim and mouldings in the home are another popular design option.

In the picture above, our clients had a very small space to work with in their master-bathroom, and therefore opted to transform the space while still maintaining the existing layout.  We removed the old bathtub, and created a custom tiled shower with marble subway tile on the walls, marble basket weave mosaics on the shower floor and in a rug inlay on the outer floor.  A frame-less shower glass gives the illusion of even more space.  Brushed nickel faucets, a sleek vanity with marble counter-top modernize the bathroom into a small oasis.

If relaxing in a bathtub is a priortiy for you, then you’ll like this bathroom!  The master bathroom pictured above, features a jacuzzi soaker tub that was on our clients must have list.  In order to fit this request into the bathroom, we were able to steal some space from the closet that backs up to it.  12×12 marble floor tiles with glass mosiac accents were installed throughout the bathroom and shower walls.   A new double sink vanity with granite counter-tops, brushed nickel faucets, and separate mirrors finish the transformation.

Whatever space you may have or not have :)… Contact Kolby Construction today to start your bathroom transformation.  Everyone should have an oasis to enjoy when they start the day, or when it comes to a close.

Home Renovation: Is your house ready to be the “after” photo?

Many people are deciding to stay in their current house and renovate instead of moving!  Moving costs, real estate fees, leaving the neighborhood you love are all great reasons to decide to renovate your existing home.

Check out out this before photo of an older run-down ranch home in a fabulous Smyrna, GA neighborhood.

In this project we completely renovated the interior and exterior of the home.  New roofing shingles, low-e double hung wood windows, board and batten siding, new front door.  The interior of the home was also transformed as we made the entire layout a new functional open concept floor plan. To see more interior photos check out the project page of our website.

The next project below had a larger budget, and that allowed for a second story addition to be constructed, as well as a 2-car garage.

In this project the newly constructed second floor added 2 new bedrooms, a bonus room, and a spacious bathroom.  The first floor was also re-configured to allow for a generous sized owner’s suite, a fabulous open kitchen-dining room, family room, and even a small office.

The exterior of the home features 3 craftsman style dormer with brackets and board and batten shutters.  The front porch adds character with the columns and copper roof.

If you are ready to transform your house into a fabulously updated home, contact us to get started on your project!  The skilled team at Kolby Construction is ready to assist from design to completion.
