Show to Sell Homes
“Attractive & Affordable Renovations” By Approachable Designers


2017 marks our 31st year in business and we are excited to formally announce a service, ”Attractive & Affordable Renovations”, that we have been doing for years.

Over the past three decades we have been creating beautiful interiors selecting appealing paint colors, rugs, accessories and furnishings for the purpose of “selling homes.”

Many of our clients have asked us to do the same for them once they settle into their new location. It is an honor and a pleasure to work our “magic” and help update, renovate and create beautiful spaces for all.

Kitchens and bathrooms are our specialty!

Contact our Approachable and Affordable team for a consultation. You too can have a new “updated look” regardless of when your house was built.

Here are examples of projects we have done.

Project: Total Home Renovation

We started in the kitchen, removed walls, designed new cabinets, installed flooring, appliances and countertops. The project was going so well it ended up being a total home renovation! We created a master bedroom suite from what was an original attic turned into an in law apartment. The second level had an old kitchen, bath and two other spaces that were basically unfinished. This was turned into a master bedroom, full bath, center dressing room complete with walk in closet and an office with sliders out to a rooftop deck!

Project: Kitchen Renovation with Custom Cabinetry

Several months after staging this client’s family home, (sold in less than 2 months) they called us to help them renovate the kitchen in their new home. This was a builder’s 1990 development complete with press board cabinets and little counter space. Our clients wanted an upgrade with high end appliances and a place to sit and have breakfast.

We got to work and designed a kitchen that almost doubled the cabinet space added a raised breakfast bar and included a totally functional laundry/mud room. We designed custom pull out pantries (these save space while allowing so much more storage). Our brilliant and very talented cabinetmaker customized each cabinet, drawer and built in so we could fit everything we wanted into the existing area.

The results were really amazing! The clients could not be happier.

We just received a call from them as they are getting ready to renovate the master bath.

Project: Direct Waterfront Bath Renovation

You could not get closer to the sand in this bright open master bedroom. Soaring ceilings and a wall of glass with unobstructed views. Unfortunately the master bath was located in the hall and shared with two family bedrooms. Our homeowners wanted a master bath with the ability to look out at the water views while soaking in the original claw foot tub.

This renovation included relocation of the walk in closet, taking six feet from the hall bath and creating a luxurious master bath where the original closet was.

The master included a 48×48 walk in shower, water closet, double 77″vanity and a soaking tub that was reused from the hall bath.

Our new guest/hall bath included a tub, custom 48″vanity and toilet as well as a deep linen/storage closet.

We selected all the materials and worked closely with the contractor as many elements had to be customized due to the tight spaces and our client’s wishes to have all of the above!

Project goals accomplished! Oh, we also were able to build a tall, 24″ wide linen closet at the entrance of the master bath. That was a bonus for our homeowners.
