One of the major challenges with the Summit Avenue mansion renovation is that it needed a new concrete basement, as seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict. Host Nicole Curtis is working first hand with the concrete crew to ensure that the job is completed correctly. Nicole's tip is to work side by side with anyone you hire to work on your home to learn from them in their area of expertise.
Nicole used a new dining set and a salvaged antique dresser when decorating the dining room. Plus, she salvaged old windows from a construction site and turned them into unique frames for family photos.
As seen on Rehab Addict, the kitchen in the Riley home was completely gutted. New cabinets, appliances and granite countertops were added. A white subway tile backsplash with dark-colored grout adds a vintage touch. In order to keep something from the original home, Nicole Curtis was able to salvage the hardwood floors.
An expert in salvage-picking, Nicole prides herself on being able to renovate and stage a home on a tight budget. Many of the furniture pieces she uses for staging are donated, salvaged from previous renovations or unique garage sale finds, as seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict.
