A Fresh, New Entrance Hallway
This job involved new paint, trim, baseboards, a new front door (custom-designed), new lighting, custom carpentry, additional storage and new carpeting.
My clients really loved the character and distinct style of her older home. But she felt that her front entrance hallway was dark and a bit dated. Steve's Jobs repaired the plaster crown moldings, installed new tile flooring, door trim and baseboards, and repaired significant damage to the walls in this high traffic area. A new front door was installed, the existing light fixture was refurbished, and everything received a fresh coat of primer and paint. The hall closet door - an existing door that had a thick, shiny shellac coating on it - was stripped, sanded, primed and painted in a fresh, cloud white color. An inexpensive mirror (a $25 Home Sense find) was added to the hall closet door, and new, nickel hardware was installed. The space under the stairs was also converted for extra shoe storage. The stairs needed new carpeting, and so this was installed by an associate. The change to the closet door alone is quite remarkable - the overall space is much lighter, brighter, and more welcoming.
