“Long story short: The word ‘amazing’ doesn’t even begin to describe the interior design job that they created for our house.
We had used Jeff Sheats and his team for a remodel of our 25 year old farmhouse back in early 2013, and after the stellar job they did we had no hesitation in calling him again to work on the new extension to our house. The main focus of the new extension was to replace our ancient closet-sized master bathroom with something spacious and beautiful, add some his-and-hers closets, and a large, quiet new master bedroom away from the noise of a busy 2 year old.
We knew Jeff had a good indication of our tastes from the previous project he had worked on, but we were still astonished when we turned up at the design brief to find that Jeff and his team had absolutely nailed our preferences. We arrived in his studio to a table full of drawings, fabrics, tile and paint samples, photographs and mock-ups of a design that really represented our tastes. Looking back – I don’t think we changed a single suggestion that the team made; everything worked perfectly for our tastes from paint colors to drapery to fixture choices. Everything.
Once work began, Jeff and his team were involved regularly to ensure the builders were sticking to the detailed construction plans and schedules for lighting, plumbing, and electrical placement and that the ground-up build was going to ensure the interior design plans were followed. Jeff made minor tweaks as the subcontractors worked for things you would not even consider unless you had experience of projects like this – adjusting a door swing or a switch a few inches one way so that once the design is finished everything just flows beautifully.
A critical point for us is that we’re expecting our second baby, and it was essential that we be moved back into the house long before number two is due to arrive. Jeff’s detailed project management ensured we were back in when we were supposed to be, and we always had clear expectations of when things were happening. It’s the attention to detail that sets him apart.
So – what were the results like?
Phenomenal. The bathroom Jeff and his team designed in our master bath suite is more luxurious than any upscale hotel or spa bathroom I’ve ever been in. It is like stepping into a sanctuary. The new master bedroom is exactly as I specified – pitch black at night and completely quiet. The new modular closets give us a huge amount of well-organized space. The changes to the rest of the house have completely transformed it: New herringbone floor tile in the mudroom, an amazing powder room, upgraded auxiliary baths and new drapery in the living room that really ties the rooms together. All the design elements from the moment you walk into the house bring a flow right through the entire space. “Delighted” is a complete understatement.”
