Our clients wanted to update their kitchen but didn’t want the huge expense purchasing new cabinets.  Solution…paint the perimeter cabinets and add in a large custom island.  The island included a wine refrigerator, built in microwave, wine rack, lots of drawers/cabinets and a mixer lift.  New Coretec flooring (laid on top of tile), quartz (perimeter) and marble (island) countertops, granite composite sink, coil faucet, cook top, wall mount hood fan and tile backsplash brought this kitchen to life.  It was a huge transformation and our clients are thrilled!  Here are a few before and after pics:

Our client has collected alcohol for many years and asked us to create a bar that was functional and displayed their amazing collection.  The wish list was a bar that was warm and inviting, lots of bottle storage, space for a kegerator, dishwasher, ice maker, commercial refrigerator, ample counter space and room to sit and enjoy.  We used every inch of the room that we could and in the end…success!  Our client is thrilled and can’t wait for family and friends to enjoy and monthly tastings to begin.  Here are a few before and after pics.

Kitchen Update

We were so excited about this kitchen make over! We changed the flooring to the luxury vinyl Coretec, gave them a new tile backsplash, gorgeous dark granite countertops, new recessed lighting in the work area, an updated fixture in the eating area, and painted the room to be a softer and more modern color. These things gave them a huge transformation without having to change the cabinets. Check out the before and afters! Before After

A Dream of A Cellar

A recent client had a large, nonfunctional basement and a love of cooking, entertaining, and wine. They called HauteMove and we changed this space into a dream cellar. First we removed an old built-in cabinet/vanity and removed the linoleum flooring. We sanded the floor and used concrete floor paint to get the fantastic floor you see below. By removing a second door leading into a bathroom, we were able to make a nice long wall for shelving.  We designed the shelving and our  fabulous carpenters custom-built them. Note the big open cabinets on the bottom — these are for large baskets of produce from

Setting New Year’s Goals

This year, lets tackle every room! 1. Make a list of each room or space in your house and give each one its own page. 2. Then write down a sort of SWOT analysis of the space. If your’ve never done a SWOT, it stands for Strengths, Opportunities, Weaknesses, Threats. Now, you don’t have to do it exactly like that but the basics are this:   Strengths and Opportunities: What is the space for? What does it do well? Does this space do something better than another space? Is there extra space or potential for extra space? Could this room
