Updating your fireplace and surround can completely change the style of a room. The first in our fireplace update series is one of the most dramatic we have completed. 

Our clients are most comfortable living in a modern home. So, when they purchased a traditional style home, one of the first steps was to install wide plank, dark hardwood floors on the main and upper levels, paint the handrail and balusters, and install new stairs. Despite these changes, the traditional brown brick fireplace was the first design element visible as soon as you walked into the home.

Three years ago we had the pleasure of working with a family who were building a custom home in Falls Church. They contacted SDI for assistance selecting all of their finish selections for the entire home.  For the kitchen and bathrooms, this included tile design, cabinet colors and lighting.  Paint and lighting selections were made throughout the rest of their home. Other services we provided included creating floor layouts for the family room.  This was critical so that the location of floor outlets could be determined.  SDI attended selection meetings, contractor meetings, and construction walk-throughs to ensure that everything came together as planned.

In competitive housing markets like ours in the DMV, you simply can’t afford to make mistakes when staging your home for sale. It’s a fact that a well-staged home will sell faster and for a higher price, so getting it right is really important. At Signature Design Interiors, our staging team has over 16 years of decorating expertise and professional staging accreditations, which results in a staged home with a higher level of design aesthetic. Presenting open and airy furniture arrangements that are well accessorized is a must, but we go steps beyond that by injecting great design principles into each property that results in a “wow effect” that buyers are looking for when choosing a home.
