Style Upgrade

Location: Portland, OR

Unleash your home's potential.

Our clients decided to embark on a home renovation to their 2000 Portland build-grade home after 17 years, and their daughter went to college. They always wanted to remodel but needed to find the time and vision for the space. The Portland whole house remodel project focused on adding character and defining the couple’s style using their existing furniture as a guide. The remodel touched a lot of spaces, such as the entire main floor, kitchen, family room, powder bathroom, staircase, and upstairs guest bath, as well as paint, flooring, millwork, and lighting upgrades throughout. The couple transformed their cookie-cutter home and stretched their budget to create a personal and impressive home.
