Historic homes are unique and special properties. However, renovating them can be daunting – there are many things to consider in order to maintain the character of the home while also bringing it into the 21st century. As interior designers, we understand these considerations and can guide you through the entire process. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the most important factors you need to keep in mind when renovating your historic home – most of the same design tips apply to any older home remodel.
If you’re looking to remodel or plan a new construction home, a Modern Mediterranean home is timeless and quintessential California. A focus on indoor-outdoor living and open floor plans are evident in these homes. For a modern look, we prefer to pare down architectural details – no corbels please – and focus on symmetry. There are a few essential key design elements that we compiled for you. As an interior designer in the Sacramento area, I found these guidelines very helpful to lead our clients through the building process.
No matter if you’re embarking on a remodel or building from the ground up, there are certain topics that we like to get very clear on right away. We see them time and time again to determine the success of the project. We want to share them with you and hope these tips will help you with the process of home building. Ideally, we can help our clients to make their building/remodeling endeavor an adventure of discovering new products and seeing their dream home come to life. It should not be an overwhelming event. Take a peak and feel free to contact us with your questions.

Let’s explore some of the unique opportunities this diversity provides us with as designers – along with the challenges that come with it. We hope this post inspires you !
