A Stunning Project: The Metuchen Fireplace

For this Metuchen Fireplace project, the owners’ fireplace when we began was a simple installation in the wall; it lacked any color or design which is where we stepped in to help. A fireplace can become a real centerpiece in any room, adding life and color and making it a lovely piece for any size family and certainly perfect for warm and cozy nights in. This is exactly what the family were looking for.

We got together and planned the project from start to finish; we wanted it to project warmth, be inviting, stand out in its own right and be a piece that anyone coming through the home would love.

We designed and constructed a custom fireplace surround in a stunning white, which included a situated position for the family TV at the top of the surround. For the fire below, we installed a custom glass tile around the fire box which looked stunning and added color and pattern to the project, especially against the main white backdrop. When the fire was on and the TV fully working, it looked like it had always been a part of the family home.

The entire project looked beautiful on completion and the family loved it. It will certainly prove popular with family and friends too.

Basement Transformation Project

In this recent and very exciting project, we were called in to help with a basement that was very outdated and needed a lot of work. With wood paneling  walls and ceiling that was stuck in a timewarp from the 1970’s, it needed a total makeover to turn this dated space into a fun and modernized space.

The wood from all of the walls was completely removed and painted a lovely taupe color, and the trim and poles were painted a crisp white. Previously the space under the stairs had been completely unused. We turned it into a wine bar and storage, with much needed shelving.

A new bathroom for the basement was also installed, as well as a TV and entertainment area. It is fair to say that the home owners will be spending a lot of time in their new basement.

The transformation of the whole area is stunning; it does not look like the same space. Take a look for yourself.
