You know that wonderful feeling you get when you try on a piece of clothing that feels like it’s been made just for you? Perhaps it’s those jeans that are neither too tight or too loose, or that dress that makes you feel like royalty. Just slipping on the item gives your mood a boost.

What if you could have a similar feeling in your own home? What if your living space fit you like a glove? That’s what we create for our clients: spaces that are designed and built to suit.

At present, we’re excited to be working on a full apartment remodel in Hoboken NJ. While we’ve long had a thriving business in Jersey City, we’ve recently been working with more homeowners in the Hoboken area.

In preparation for this design and build project, we met with our clients to catch their vision for the condo space. As you’ll see below, the current space has a neutral, developer feel.

We completed a series of mood boards for the kitchen, laundry room, closets, two bathrooms, appliances, and areas throughout the apartment. Mood boards help us show the homeowners the look and feel of the renovated space and ensure that we’re on the same page when it comes to aesthetics.

The mood boards illustrate the direction our clients want to go: a modern, sophisticated look with lots of textured surfaces, carefully-chosen detailing, elegant lights, and streamlined storage solutions.

At present, the design phase is finished and the building process is underway! Under the supervision of our project management team, our subcontractors have been completing demolition, plumbing, electrical, insulation, flooring, tiling, painting, and assorted other installation tasks to bring this vision to reality.

Stay tuned for the rest of the story to see if it’s a perfect fit!

Client Review:

“[My husband] and I feel so grateful to have had Houseplay Renovations to carry out our first home renovation. The Hoboken apartment we were purchasing needed a complete remodel before we moved in. We contacted few contractors prior to meeting Houseplay Renovations. It was really clear to us from our initial conversation that Houseplay Renovation’s approach and style stood out from the rest.

They listened carefully when we described our vision for the space and our timeline for moving in. They were very responsive, their design choices were spot-on, and they worked quickly to get the project started as soon as possible after closing.

Throughout the process the team (Tamara, Veronika & Niall) was very responsive and supportive and all our questions were answered promptly. The design phase was thorough and detailed so that the building/renovation phase went smoothly and efficiently.

We’re so excited and thankful to have a newly renovated, modern, and sophisticated space to call our first home. (We like the kitchen so much that sometimes we feel as though we’re making breakfast on vacation in Paris!)

Whenever we share our project photos on social media, our friends comment about how fantastic our home looks. We’ve received a lot of compliments for the apartment; we’re very pleased and satisfied that we chose the Houseplay Renovations team!”
