Valley Forge Condo Renovation

16 Jul

We’re taking you somewhere different today. Let’s head on over to King of Prussia for a peek inside a recent condo renovation at Valley Forge Towers.
Valley Forge Condo Renovation Family Room
There’s really no way to dress up a popcorn ceiling, so the homeowners are super happy with their new tray ceiling and renovated family room. The entire condo was basically gutted and refinished.

Valley Forge Condo Renovation Kitchen and Dining Room
We took down the side wall of the kitchen to create a more open floor plan. New hardwood floors throughout the condo replaced worn carpeting.

Living Room Philadelphia Renovation Wainscot & Trim

Finely crafted molding treatments allow other elements of a room to take center stage. Accurate cuts, careful assembly, and a fine finishing job pay rich dividends for a high-quality effect. In this room, wainscot panels and contrasting molding offers support for hanging artwork.

Custom Cabinetry Flat Panel Television

Integrating the television into the cabinetry allows for pleasant, comfortable viewing while ensuring that the room also serves other purposes. Audio and video components are hidden in a closet behind the cabinetry. During the renovation, wires were snaked behind the wall to finish off this clean, classic look.

After living in one condo unit for 15 or so years, the homeowners wanted a little more from their home sweet home, so they scooped up the neighbor’s unit when it went up for sale. Then they hired us, award-winning renovation firm Gardner/Fox, to guide them through the design and construction process. Here’s a quick look at what went down.
