Finishing Touches

Posted by Bridget McMullin on August 21, 2019

Our client gave us a call several years (and several home-renovation projects) after moving into their house. They felt the rooms looked unfinished and that the interior design did not rise to the same level as the architecture. MDG to the rescue! After meeting with the client and hashing out a game plan and budget, the MDG team got together an extensive finishing scope that would have the house feeling “done” in no time.  We…

Facelift

Posted by Bridget McMullin on August 07, 2019

Refacing your cabinets is a great way to save money as long as your cabinets are worth it! When our clients bought their new home, they felt the kitchen did not quite fit the style of the home. MDG agreed on that point. The cabinet selection felt builder’s grade for such a custom space.  They did not want to go into a full renovation but wanted to update the space and add a hood that…

Where Kids Rule – Playroom Dos & Don’ts

Posted by Bridget McMullin on July 24, 2019

  Basement playrooms are an interesting animal depending on where you’re at in the journey of parenthood.  New parents tend to get extremely anxious about their three-year-old playing on another floor in their home while the seasoned parent (usually one with a second child) is happy for the peace and quiet.

A case study in kitchen renovation budgets. Our Sicklerville client wanted to break out of the typical kitchen renovation.  They wanted to move their kitchen to their unused dining room and create a large open plan design. They also knew they wanted to add a little bling!     Our client’s budget was initially too low for their goals, which we discussed at our first meeting.  To help them understand the budget, we created several…

Creating the Perfect Home Workspace

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 27, 2019

  I hate working from home.  This feeling comes from a few places.  First, I am not interested in making my home an office.  I want my home to be a place of relaxation.  Second, I just don’t have an efficient space to work!  Having a dedicated space to spread out, I believe, is the key to a successful home workspace. We have helped many clients transform their home offices into efficient home workspaces.  At…

Should She Stay, or Should She Go?

Posted by Bridget McMullin on June 27, 2018

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean your house has to age at the same pace. After her husband’s passing, our client was presented with a dilemma: should she renovate her home or move?  She favored remaining in the home long-term, but was worried about her safety as she aged. Her house had been paid off and she didn’t want to “outstrip” the neighborhood. But she also knew that if she moved, she would pay…
