Foyer Renovation and Railing Installation Basking Ridge, NJ 07920

Scope of work: Foyer RenovationRailing Installation, Interior Painting

Location: Basking Ridge, NJ 07920

Timeline: 3 days

 

These Basking Ridge homeowners called our team at Monk’s with a unique request.  They wanted to renovate their foyer to create a more open feel.  The homeowners envisioned removing the main wall and installing a railing to create a more gentle flow from the top floor, down the main staircase, and through the basement stairs.

In only three days Monk’s was able to deliver this vision.

Supporting the Open Foyer

After hearing the homeowner’s request our team at Monk’s had to decide whether such a renovation was even feasible.  Concerns about the amount of support this particular wall was providing were discussed.  It was decided that our team at Monk’s could make this renovation work; a large column would replace the wall.

The first step to this project was removing the existing wall.

As the wall was ripped out all of the old framing and studs were also removed; the existing outlet was also moved to a different wall.

To finish, all wallpaper was removed, the walls were prepped, primed, and painted.  Accents of the poplar column were enhanced as well.

To achieve the finished, polished look these homeowners were striving for all handrails were sanded and had two coats of satin impervio oil-based finish in mink applied.  These dark handrails give the space a sleek modern look.
