It seems like everybody is updating and improving their home. You probably have some projects on your "to do" list. Sometimes the hardest part is getting estimates to find out how much something costs. Can you afford to do it now or do you need to save and budget for it? To make your life easier, and maybe inspire you, we are sharing some of our most recent installations and how much it cost to get it done.
Thinking of updating your staircase? A client in Marietta totally redid her staircase: new treads and risers and brand new balusters for $6,100. This included the custom staining of all the stair parts plus painting the risers.
A new backsplash is a great way to instantly upgrade your kitchen without breaking the bank. A 2" x 4" subway tile with an accent strip was installed for $1,200 in a large Marietta kitchen.
Luxury Vinyl Tile is growing in popularity. It is one flooring option that is very resistant to water; a client in Marietta chose a grouted tile for his kitchen for $1,300 installed.
Want a bigger shower? We can help. We recently removed a prefab shower and replaced it with a larger shower, including a frameless glass door, for $7,400. This included all the plumbing and painting the walls, ceiling and trim in this bathroom.
Granite is the go-to for elegant and functional kitchen countertops. New Ashen White granite countertops were installed in a kitchen in Marietta for $2,600. DESIGN TIP: Lighter colored granite is much more popular today than dark colors.
A high quality plush SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet, along with the upgraded SmartCushion Memory Foam padding, was installed in a large basement for $3,400.
Rustic hardwoods with wider plank widths are a growing trend. We just installed an engineered 5" plank hardwood in the downstairs area of a Marietta home for $6,300. These floors are wire brushed. You may be wondering what that means. This is a distressing technique utilizing wire bristles to remove the sapwood (soft wood) and open and enhance the wood grain, adding texture & character. The matte finish hides scratches and wear particularly well, making it a perfect choice for heavily used areas like the kitchen, family room, and foyer.
Porcelain tile is an excellent choice for kitchens. A recent installation in a kitchen, breakfast area and utility room was $4,700. The client chose an 18" x 18" tile installed on the diagonal.
Wanting a super soft, thick carpet? A Mohawk SmartStrand Silk was installed with the upgraded SmartCushion pad in 4 bedrooms for $6,900. Most people still want soft and warm carpet for their bedrooms.
Wanting wood but think it's too expensive? We have a value line of prefinished solid oak hardwoods. A client in Marietta just put them in his large living room and dining room for $3,300.
Laminate is a great alternative to wood for an active family. A recent installation in Woodstock consisting of 600 sq. ft. was $3,400.
A recent large job (1,600 square feet) of engineered hand scraped hickory was $11,800. Hickory is a beautifully varied wood and runs a little higher in price than the more common oak.
A client in Atlanta recently put the popular size porcelain tile of 12" x 24" in her sunroom. The installed cost was around $2,000.
We removed a tub and installed a large shower in Sandy Springs for $8,000. This included a frameless glass door, floor and wall tile, new plumbing fixtures as well as a large niche with a shelf.
Giallo Ornamental is one of our more popular granites. One slab installed in a kitchen in Marietta was $3,300.
Everything in your bathroom looking great except the flooring? We replaced the flooring in a master bath and hall bath in a home in Marietta for just $2,500. Our client chose a wood-look ceramic tile for both bathrooms.
