Wimbledon Drive Full Home Renovation – Interior Design Project
Kevin K, a professional flipper, typically buys and sells houses "as is". For him to make his best profit, this project required a whole home update.
He contacted me to do the interior design throughout the home. Once completed, the
house sold in just a few days.
Here is the story of the renovation.
INTERIOR DESIGN FOR A FLIPPER
When I first walked into the project, the old kitchen had already been torn out. For this renovation, I started with a decor plan. I was hired to make all the decor selections, from floors to faucets. The image above shows a builder grade kitchen transformed into a more contemporary kitchen. I chose dark cabinets to be contrasted against a simple white counter and a show stopper stone backsplash.
Backsplash choices are endless and many of my clients are stumped by this very important design feature. In this kitchen, the counter I selected was a simple white quartz because I wanted the backsplash to take a starring role. Any one of the selections below would have worked in this kitchen, but I went with the horizontal rock (no. 2) which I think turned out beautifully.
The old kitchen featured a pantry and desk, which was a popular design back in the day. I redesigned the space to feature pantry cabinets flanking a bar, which can be used as a coffee station or dry bar. In either case, the new area is far more functional and versatile.
BEAUTIFUL AND MULTI-FUNCTIONAL
Pictures don't do this master bathroom justice. There are tons of choices to be made in a bathroom renovation. Flooring, counter to ceiling glass tile backsplash, lighted mirrors, updated cabinetry, faucets, hardware, lights, tub and tub fixtures are some of the choices to be made. In addition, the shower stall tile walls, floor and accents, not to mention, the door style and shower fixtures. All this and heated floors! I would have loved to have been able to stage this property, but it sold too quickly to make that a necessity.
BATHROOMS – FROM DREARY TO DREAMY
MAKING REMNANTS WORK
Matching tile, cabinet colors and flooring with a remnant granite piece isn't always an easy thing to do. Most often, I like counters to bridge the colors and textures of the whole room. For this renovation, I was able to find some really excellent remnant pieces for the master, powder room and second floor bath.
By adding the floating counter and sink, I revamped what was a very dated powder room and showcased these features with an eye-catching backsplash.

From the outside, to the inside, and everywhere in between, colors and textures were carefully considered to ensure that the whole home had a cohesive flow and a great vibe.
