PROBLEMS: The original 1950s basement looked its age: dark and unfinished, with exposed joists, ducts, and wires. Doing the laundry was a particularly challenging chore in such a dysfunctional space.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: Adding a new bathroom provided the perfect L-shaped new cheerful laundry area with white storage cabinets. The undermount laundry sink shared a wall with one of the couple’s new shower fittings. After the remodeling, doing the laundry is enjoyable, in the well-lit new room with blue glass “Vetrazzo” countertops and blue tile backsplashes.
TESTIMONIAL: Diane Plesset designed a new bathroom and laundry area, as well as a complete remodel of an existing bathroom, for us. Prior to these, we did not have any experience with construction/remodel projects. It was terrific working with Diane, who helped us with every facet of the construction process, and who had great design ideas that we continue to benefit from and enjoy every day. Thanks in large part to Diane, our bathrooms and laundry area are beautiful as well as functional and contemporary, and have been designed with aging in place principles so that we can continue to enjoy them for many years to come.
Diane is extremely knowledgeable of construction and design, and she helped us to choose everything from tiles to fixtures to appliances, and to work with a variety of vendors to get the best prices possible. She helped us to figure out what we wanted and what was realistic within our budget. Then she helped to turn our choices into reality. She provided our contractors with to-scale blueprints that we had approved, so that every design detail was accounted for and the contractors had a roadmap of exactly what needed to be done.
Diane collaborated with us, respected our decisions, and helped us navigate the construction process so that it went as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Thanks to Diane, our projects were on time and on budget. Her fees were very reasonable for the high level of professional design and advice she provided. We recommend her unconditionally.
