This house is probably one of my favorites to date! It’s located steps away from beautiful Patterson Park near Canton in Baltimore city. We put a two story roof deck on for maximum city views and hosting party pleasure. And there’s 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with lots of storage and a large island! Plus it’s a historical renovation so we kept all the beautiful window transoms, some original tile and original hardware floors. Everything new we added to have the same period feel of this 100+ year old row-home. It’s a gorgeous transformation and I just love seeing my visions come to fruition. Someone is going to be really happy in this home for hopefully a long time! Here’s some before and after pictures:
Exterior: Left is before picture, right is after custom door, tore down the old bay window siding and installed custom picture frame molding, replaced light, house numbers and mailbox.
Kitchen: All new cabinets, contrast island painted in Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, brass hardware, globe pendants, chevron back-splash, quartz countertops, refinished hardwood floors and new appliances.
Bathrooms (2 of 3 shown): The upstairs had one very stinky, very dated bathroom, we tore it out and in it’s “place” put in two beautiful bathrooms so that the master bedroom would have an en suite and then there would be a bathroom in the hallway too.
Living room/dining room: We refinished hardwood floors, took out awful drop ceiling and installed gorgeous tray ceilings, exposed and cleaned up brick and painted Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray.
Master Bedroom: Insane transformation – pictures show it all!
Here’s a recent renovation property we flipped, it’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath rowhome in Baltimore. Originally only a 2 bedroom and one bath home so we added a full bath as well as a third bathroom. This house had gorgeous pine floors that just needed to be touched up and refinished, it also had pretty exposed beams that we decided to leave exposed. Keeping with those finishes, we decided to do a decorative tin ceiling in the kitchen which I think turned out gorgeous and we used a tile flooring in the kitchen that looks like rustic wood. Overall, the home has a modern-industrial feel and I just love the way it turned out.

Here’s the only bathroom the house had prior to renovation:
And here’s that bathroom now as well as the additional master bath that was added:
Paint colors-Living room, dining room and bedrooms (not pictured) are all Sherwin Williams Light French Gray. Bathrooms and kitchen are Benjamin Moore Smoke. All the trim is Benjamin Moore White Dove. Front door is Sherwin Williams Stolen Kiss.
Thanks for reading, our next flip should be completed by the first of the year!
Another completed project! This row home has so much natural light and is quite spacious considering some Baltimore row homes can be narrow. I love how open this house is and how large the kitchen is! The room off the back is an added bonus for a mudroom. Here’s some of the before and after photos on this gorgeous row home.
What do home renovation enthusiasts do when there aren’t any projects left to do on their home? Well I guess we could move, but we’re just not ready for that yet so we took the plunge and started a company! The official company website is klrdevelopment.com however I figured what better place to show the actual rehab before and after photos than my blog. So without further delay, here’s a gorgeous home that recently sold in less than a week and took about a year to complete. I am equally obsessed with this kitchen – the size, the island, all those cabinets! – as well as the master bath – the shiplap, that huge walk in shower, the tiles, the vanity space! I also staged the home to define the spaces, given it’s such an open floor plan.
It is a large, rancher-style home, very dated and very dark. The rooms were small and closed off and our plan was to open it up and lighten it up to really showcase how big this house is and how much beautiful potential it has. So here you go, in no certain order because there are so many before pictures…
And here’s how it looks now completed and beautiful…
Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore
Kitchen with Gray Owl
For paint colors we used Benjamin Moore gray owl and white dove. The lighting all came from Wayfair, and we used quartz in the kitchen for countertops. Now on to the next project!
For now our home is complete, there’s always something to redecorate and we’re thinking of moving the boys into the same room shortly so I’ll have fun with that but for now I think it’s a wrap on renovation projects. I thought I’d conclude with a photo gallery of where we are now, almost 3 years into this house.
Now, we can focus on renovation projects outside of our personal home…stay tuned!
Like many houses built in the 1940’s, our home has only two full bathrooms. Our main bathroom is upstairs on the same floor as our bedrooms and the other full bathroom is in the basement. The bathroom upstairs was tiny so part of our renovation was to enlarge it. Gavin used the space that was occupied by the closet in our nursery (read more about that here) to give us more square footage in our bathroom. We were able to upgrade to a larger vanity which is so nice for us to share the space in the mornings. We left the toilet in the same place but bought a new one, keeping the styling traditional to match the bathtub which is original. The flooring was replaced with marble tile put down in a herringbone pattern and in the shower surround, we went with white subway tiles and a gray Moroccan print accent wall. Gavin also added an overhead rain shower spout and we changed out all the bathtub hardware to chrome fixtures that match the sink faucet. Behind the bathroom door, Gavin had to run a HVAC duct for our air conditioning we recently had installed. He creatively hide it with built in storage cubbies.
