A One of a Kind Renovation for Two Deserving Educators

April 24, 2019

Homeowners Juan and Sabina are hardworking educators who already did a ton of work on their home — except for the kitchen, master bathroom, and sunroom. With $75K and six weeks, Grace gave them a huge kitchen with two islands, an outdoor entertaining space, and even surprised them with a spa-like master bathroom.

From Pink to Palace

Sabina and Juan Rios have lived in their house for seven years. When they first bought it, every room was pink. In fact, they had to remove pink carpeting from NINE rooms! But after already putting in a substantial amount of work to their home, they called in Grace to help out with their kitchen and sunroom. With a budget of $75K and six weeks, Grace gave the Rios family a new GIANT kitchen, new outdoor space, and even surprised them with a new master bathroom!

Meet the Homeowners

Sabina and Juan Rios are both educators! Sabina works as an elementary school principal and Juan teaches foreign languages at a middle school. Inspired by their careers and Juan’s Mexican heritage, Grace wanted to communicate two themes throughout her design: roots and community.

Sunroom Exterior, Before

The Rios’ home originally had a sunroom-type space on the second floor that family didn't really use.

Deck, After

The only thing Juan really wanted out of this renovation was a deck and Grace made his dreams come true! The new deck is 300 square feet and features gorgeous Mexican-inspired tile on the wall, as well as antique Mexican shutters. Grace also had a 3,500 spiral staircase brought in — creating easier access to the kitchen.
