Depending on Your Interior Design Team for Unique Custom Features

Hear more about this project by listening to our interview with Charleston Home + Design Magazine!

Over the years, PRD Custom Homes & Interiors has honed our design process to minimize headaches for the homeowner while we develop their dream home vision into reality. Throughout the process, our interior design team will utilize this process to present you with design conception ideas, samples, and creative options to help you make informed decisions about your custom remodel project. 

One of our favorite recent projects was a full remodel of a large home in Meggett, South Carolina. These buyers purchased this house, “Magnolia Manor,” and rolled right into design and construction with us. They had an eclectic design style and wanted to feature their amazing artwork throughout their new home. They relied on our design team to develop some showstopping custom features for their remodel to coincide with their personality and style. 

One major area of concern for these homeowners was their kitchen. Its dark contemporary style was closed off from the rest of the home, and didn’t provide the warm welcome that guests would expect in a Charleston home. The client asked us to design a kitchen layout that would open this space up to the living area, making it brighter and more inviting. Here are a few of the custom features and unique concepts that our interior designers incorporated into the kitchen to make it one-of-a-kind.

Hand Painted Caribbean Heart Pine Floors

The first challenge with this kitchen remodel was turning it from a closed-off space into an open floor plan. This required the removal of a wall and tying new floors into the pre-existing  Caribbean Heart Pine flooring throughout the rest of the home.

We partnered with one of our favorite local decorative painters, Jess Kollar, to hand paint a classic checkerboard pattern over the new heart pine flooring to help camouflage the transition into the living room, and give visual interest to the kitchen. The design was an excellent, artistic match for the floors in the rest of the home, and our clients love the result: 

Brass Paneled Fridge: the Star of the Show

Often during the design process, our interior designers will think outside the box and drop a creative idea into our 3D rendering to show clients upgrade options for their home.

This unlacquered brass Liebherr fridge featured in the photo below was one of those ideas we developed for this project. Our clients were very open to design ideas that added personality to their space, and this custom brass fridge did not disappoint. The first question this client asked after seeing our 3D design renderings was, “Tell us more about that brass fridge!”

More Custom Features

The list of custom designed features in this home could go on and one, but here are a few more of our favorites:

  • Unlacquered Brass & Glass Shelving to display their copper cookware collection
  • Custom-Painted Brass & White Vent Hood with a La Cornue “Tapestry” blue-green range oven 
  • Iroko Wood Countertops custom-made by Southside Woodshop for this project
  • Built-in Curio Cabinet lined with Milton & King Park Avenue wallpaper in Sea Glass Cheetah print

When it all came together, this house was transformed with a fresh take on a classic southern home. It is filled with custom features that our clients are continuing to love as they settle into their new Charleston home. We couldn’t be happier with the results of this spectacular renovation
