Kitchen Transformation

Our team is truly delighted with this kitchen transformation. The kitchen in this waterfront Shady Side home was previously closed-in and allowed minimal space for food production or entertaining. By opening the space, expanding the island, and adding larger windows, this room has taken on a new function. The white beadboard ceiling, brighter cabinets, and island countertop instantly create a cleaner feel. The extra windows allow for plenty of natural light to shine through. The additional drop-in sink with polished...

Revit Technology

By utilizing Revit, 3D visualization software, homeowners are able to truly see their vision come to life during the design process. This can be particularly valuable when undertaking a major renovation since the technology allows our clients to see their "new" home from all angles and viewpoints before construction begins.

Interior “Highlights” by Shakuff

Our recently completed 10,000SF stone-and-glass contemporary waterfront home on Harness Creek features countless exquisite details. We looked to Shakuff, Exotic Glass Lighting and Décor (New York, NY), for some of the home’s unique interior “highlights”.
