“Fixer Upper” Style, Adapted for Atlanta!

Posted by Emma Weldon on June 26, 2017

Do you love HGTV as much as we do? One of our favorite shows is “Fixer Upper.” Joanna and Chip Gaines have gained a huge following, and for good reason! Their rustic designs and whole house renovations are as fun as they are cohesive. Rather than just adding a star of Texas to your mantle and calling it a day, Home ReBuilders can help authentically translate that “Fixer Upper” charm into the your Atlanta home. Here are some of our favorite ways to create a custom home with that Gaines style in mind!

Shiplap, Shiplap, Shiplap.

If you’ve watched “Fixer Upper” for more than five minutes, you’re probably familiar with the wonders of shiplap. Often found in barns and historic homes, shiplap can add a unique touch and visual interest to your home design. Home ReBuilders’ experts have all the tools and expertise to make precise cuts, so that your shiplap fits perfectly around windows, outlets, and any other tricky areas.

Add Exposed Beams.

Ceilings with exposed beams have a magical way of making any room seem warm and stately. They can highlight a large, open room and add plenty of personality. Our remodeling contractors will make sure your beams are installed safely, which is especially important for anything being added to your ceiling. Want to incorporate natural wood materials without the style commitment  of a ceiling beam? Reclaimed wood can also work as a wonderful accent on your walls or staircase.

Knock Down Walls.

Most HGTV shows, “Fixer Upper” included, have a preference for open floorplans. We can transform your entryway, living room, dining room, and kitchen into one open area with plenty of breathing room and flow. Whether your priority is entertaining a dozen friends or keeping an eye on your kids while you cook dinner, Home ReBuilders’ licensed and insured contractors can knock down walls to make it happen!

Restyle Your Fireplace and Mantle.

It doesn’t get that cold in Waco, but, Joanna Gaines still loves a good fireplace – and so do we! Home ReBuilders can add a fireplace to your home if it doesn’t have one – or, we can refinish your existing fireplace and mantle with those “Fixer Upper” touches like subway tile, white brick, or a big wooden mantle.

Mix Up Some Color.

Let us create an entirely new color scheme for your home, to match those other rustic renovations! Working within your comfort zone, our designers can capture Joanna’s signature tones – creamy whites, light grays, subtle blues, and pops of light pink and purple – and incorporate them perfectly into your rooms.

Add the Finishing Touches.

Near the end of each episode, Chip and the children leave the “Fixer Upper” home, and we get to see Joanna in her element, coordinating artwork, flowers, vintage mirrors and chalkboards, and other finishing touches. Whether you’re eyeing a funky crystal chandelier or custom signage in your kitchen, our team can make sure all your design elements and accessories are tied together.

After our team works our magic, you can go a step further by incorporating your own local flea market and designer finds into your home! Meander through Miami Circle for vintage finds and antiques; peruse Ponce City Market for home goods with old-world style and modern touches; or wander through West Midtown for industrial-inspired finds. One thing’s for sure: with Home ReBuilders by your side, you’ll have that “Fixer Upper” charm faster than Chip can make a goofy joke!
