One of the best ways to give a room a facelift is with new custom cabinets. Our carpentry team can build, paint, and install custom cabinets in your kitchen, office, bathroom, entertainment/media center, or wine room to your specifications.

2. Architectural Moldings
An easy way to elevate the look of your home is by installing crown molding and baseboard. Classic architecture typically incorporates a large number of architectural moldings to accent buildings. Everything from exterior architectural window trim to architectural crown moldings helps to soften a room and add an air of elegance.
3. French Doors/Windows
Older windows & doors may have warped so new is a great idea for functionality as well as design. Exterior and interior French doors allow much more light in and give the appearance of a more open floor plan.
While you are at it, you may want to consider new windows for design and energy efficiency.
4. Shiplap Accent Wall
Shiplap can add instant age, texture, rusticity, and a focal point to any room in your house. They make a lovely backdrop for most rustic/shabby chic or cottage accessories.
5. Faux Beams
Exposed ceiling beams are an architectural feature that allows rooms to have higher ceilings or a decorative element that adds charm. We’ve noticed that aged-wood beams are one of the features most sought after by homeowners right now. However, old, salvaged-wood beams are usually very heavy, cost-prohibitive, and are often compromised by warping or insect damage. If you are just trying to get the look of exposed beams and don’t need the support, a good option is to install faux wood beams.
