I got to spend my Valentine’s Day with one of my little guys and he came along while I photographed my design work in this beautiful two-story condo unit. I’m so proud to show it off to you! There are some finishing touches needed like errr backsplash BUT that’s construction for you! Always something to wrap up in the final minute. I chose this durable wood-look flooring from Home Depot to complement the red oak flooring throughout instead of carrying the red oak into the kitchen and worrying about having to refinish the floors down the road since it is a rental unit. I just love these floors, they’re just enough rustic to warm up this cool kitchen. Granite countertops and beautiful brushed nickel door knobs and and a Delta faucet round out the charm of this bright kitchen.
The three bathrooms all with similar style vanities and the same tile product throughout all sourced at Home Depot of Prosource, Canton. I chose the ceramic flooring in the bathrooms throughout because of the look of granite. To complement the flooring I chose to vertically install the lighter wall tile because of the strong grain mimicking the movement of water. Paired with the round sliced mosaic rock on the shower floor in the master the products give it a spa-like feeling.
It’s important for me to keep in mind the “audience” when I’m designing. With this project being a rental unit, I chose products that are lasting and durable. Ceramic and porcelain tile products are durable and easy to clean and brushed nickel is often spot resistant and hides scratches with frequent use. Seal your countertops and tile grout yearly or choose to use the new grout products that are self sealing. If you’re planning to sell your home soon or simply want durable finishes in your products, keep these things in mind and your product investment will go far!
