Many homeowners with small apartments or studios feel that not much can be done to their homes or that it’s not worth it to renovate. The truth is, having a small apartment or studio is a very good thing for homeowners when it comes to renovating. Because of the small footprint of the kitchens and bathrooms, the cost of renovating is significantly less than it would be if they were to renovate a larger space, allowing homeowners to select exactly what they want — without making significant compromises — most of the time.

In addition, homeowners who have recently purchased older apartments often find that by simply planning and budgeting for the cost of a small renovation, they can move into an apartment they really love. A simple change of cabinets and countertops, replacement of old appliances with new ones or change from old carpet to beautiful wood floors can be very affordable. This is also true of homeowners who are trying to sell their older apartments. Many sellers find that by making these simple changes and adding value, they can dramatically increase their selling price and speed, as suddenly their properties are in demand by discerning buyers, often recovering the cost of the changes and more.


CS Design Builders renovated a small downtown studio, replacing the existing kitchen with one that was not only beautiful, but more ergonomic and functional, while reducing the visual weight and footprint of the kitchen. This allowed for more natural light and cleared bulky pieces that blocked the walking path from the door into to the living room, and it was all done for a reasonable price. In addition, CS Design Builders replaced the existing floor throughout the studio with its exclusive line of gorgeous, affordable, custom-made wood flooring, completing the look beautifully.
