Walls, ceilings, floors - they represent all of the surface area in your home!
Most homeowners can't imagine the possibilities for dramatically changing their living space. Many will opt for a fresh coat of paint and call it a day. There is so much more that can be done.
For those homeowners who wish to take their interior remodeling plans a step further, we offer the following ideas:
- MOLDING, MOLDING, AND MORE MOLDING! Add it, change
it, to create visual interest. Consider adding crown molding, chair rails, shadow boxes, wainscot, corbels, pediments, or pillasters. Change the width of your window/door casings and, by all
means, change the height of your floor base molding. Typical colonial or clam shell base molding is 3.25 inches tall which makes it a non-event in the room. Choose a taller base molding and an
interesting profile to draw more attention to it. Visit our Molding Work page
- COMMON WALLS - Feel boxed in your current living space? Then consider modifing or removing walls to create an
open floor plan. (NOTE: wall modification can be a complex project due to load considerations and electrical, plumbing, and HVAC that may be present in the wall. A Structural Engineering
assessment is essential when planning a load-bearing-wall alteration)
- DOORS - Tired of your smooth, brown luan doors? Even if you paint them, they're still drab and unexciting.
Consider raised-panel doors and new, high-quality knobs. French doors and frosted glass panel doors are also an option. Light-colored doors enlarge the feel of the room.
- CEILINGS - Applied molding can work here too. Decorative piping around the ceiling perimeter and/or over a table
area creates additional interest. Tasteful, two-tone paint schemes take it to another level. If ceilings are high enough, cofferred ceilings are an option. Simply adding a ceiling medallion to your
chandelier mount will add some decorative flair.
- LIGHTING - Add it, change it. Consider wall sconces and well-placed recessed
lighting in the ceiling. Dimmer switches allow mood flexibility.
- FLOORS - A wide variety of options exist here depending on the function of the room. Types include tile,
stone, laminate, traditional hardwood, engineered, vinyl, and eco-friendly floors, to name a few.

Thinking outside the box. This master bathroom was finished with cedar planks on the ceiling.
Non-Load-Bearing Wall Removal
Load-Bearing Wall Removal
"I have a small, simple project." We hear that a lot. As you can see from the above example, whenever a wall is being removed,
there is a good possibility that an obstacle will be present, resulting in a project that is anything but simple.
This photo was taken from a basement laundry room, where the existing door to this half-bath is located. The customer wished to add a second door to access the bathroom from the finished,
family room side of the basement. What should have taken a few hours to complete, this door installation project took more than a day to reroute all obstacles.
