We reimagine historic homes, bringing them to life in the modern age without squandering their historic legacy. Because of the grandeur of homes we remodel, we take great pride in the quality of our designs, which come from some of Atlanta’s greatest design minds.
We take time to consider several options, flushing out the details, and honing in on the look, feel, and textures that you envision. Our in-house design staff works with you through every step of the process, allowing for complete transparency. We begin by incorporating your goals and gathering important information, like desired amenities, square footage, your budget, etc. We take into consideration your wants and needs, and from there, establish an overall framework for your design. We also take this time to gather information from the city, and the state, including code restrictions, and zoning requirements for your home. We begin to hone in on the space requirements, and the scope of the project.
Working within the design-build framework, we house both our design and construction teams in the same office, allowing for an unparalleled ease when it comes to ensuring the design created can be executed with the determined project scope and preliminary budget.

Atlanta's Latest Design Trends
Designing a full-home renovation is no easy task. From selecting a style to choosing the perfect layout, there are so many decisions that need to be made before construction can even begin. To simplify the process, you can start collecting ideas using websites like Houzz or Pinterest. With these sites, you can save and organize your ideas by room which can help your designer to better understand the look that you're trying to achieve with your full-home renovation. It can also help you decide which special features that you'd like to have including a floor to ceiling fireplace, vaulted ceiling, or walk-in pantry.
While design trends may come and go, there are a few styles that remain prominent throughout Atlanta. The mid-century modern, craftsman, and transitional styles reign in homes from Buckhead down to East Point. Learn more about these popular styles to see if one of them might be right for your renovation:
From the mid-1940s to the late 1960s, the mid-century modern style ushered in a whole new look for homes across America. Based on influences from the German Bauhaus design, this style has a focus on natural light, family-oriented gathering spaces, and functional design.
Some of the common features in a mid-century modern home include:
- An abundance of windows
- Open concept floor plan with clean lines
- Functional yet minimal design
- Bright and saturated colors
- Organic and geometric patterns
- Natural materials like wood, metal, and leather
The mid-century modern style continues to influence homeowners across the Peach State.
Even in new construction homes, this popular style is making a comeback!
At Copper Sky Renovations, we have a deep affinity for the craftsman style. The craftsman style grew out of the British Arts and Crafts movement and lasted from the late 1800’s through the 1930’s. It incorporates locally handcrafted wood, metal, and glass elements to create a look that is both timeless and elegant.
Some design features of the craftsman style include:
- Wide plank wood flooring
- Intricate stairways
- Glass mullion cabinet doors
- Beadboard ceilings
- Banquette seating
- Exposed beams
- Natural woodwork
The craftsman style is found in many homes across Atlanta. With it's warm natural tones and rich textures, it's no wonder why this style continues to grow in popularity. Because of its emphasis on skilled labor and detailed handiwork over mass production, the craftsman style is one for which we at Copper Sky Renovations have a deep affinity.
Although it was originally born in England out of a reaction against the effects of the Industrial Revolution on humanity and human creativity, the American Arts and Crafts movement was unique in that, rather than unintentionally being reserved as an offering for the upper class because of the expenses entailed, it had the “goal of ennobling modest homes for a rapidly expanding American middle class.”
Because the Craftsman movement was more accessible to more people when it first was born in America in the late 19th century, its design hallmarks still persist in popularity today. Here are five of our favorite craftsman design ideas for your Atlanta, GA, home.
#1 Wide-Planked Wooden Floors
Wide-planked, hardwood floors cannot be made quickly, in mass, or without skilled labor, which is why they were one of the trademarks of craftsman design. The effect is at once simple and elegant, as seen in this Chicago kitchen whose floors are made from solid, white oak planks that are each 7-9 inches wide.
#2 Intricate Stairways
Because the Craftsman style focuses on using the natural resources particular to the area in which a home is built, wood is the most common material used, and stairways are a natural area to show off carpentry expertise, as evinced in our own arts and crafts home remodel.
#3 Cabinets with Glass Mullion Doors
Glass mullion cabinetry doors are another popular Craftsman design idea that gained momentum even in other, more modern remodeling styles. They are clean, neat, and provide an interesting punctuation to traditional Shaker cabinetry.
#4 Beadboard and Tile
Intricate beadboard and tiny tile work are also common elements in Craftsman homes. These are most frequently employed in bathrooms, pantries, and back entryways because their miniature design works best in small spaces.
#5 Ceiling Beams
Finally, ceiling beams are another Craftsman-inspired home feature. Though they started out as a structural necessity, they soon evolved into a decorative statement that is ironically included even in industrial-style homes today.
If you're a fan of both modern and traditional styles, the transitional style may be
perfect for your home renovation.
Transitional style combines both traditional and modern furnishings, and materials.
Some transitional design features include:
- Open concept layout
- Neutral color palette
- Simple, clean lines
- Bold wall and ceiling treatments
- Natural elements like wood, granite, and marble
- Light colored flooring
If you love the modern look, but want the warmth of a traditional style home, the transitional style may be the best option for your renovation.
Remodeling For Small Spaces
In many older homes, there isn't a whole lot of space to get the desired functionality out of your house, and that's where design can make a big difference. As a remodeler who specializes in renovating older homes, we've created design solutions to fit a variety of small spaces.
A big remodeling idea is needed to make a small space work for a homeowner. The key to designing a cohesive small space is to start with the functionality. Ensuring the area is workable with plenty of storage and multi-use furniture is imperative to the overall quality of life for the homeowner. Giving the illusion of an open space is also another way design can help small spaces. Including natural lighting and efficient storage solutions will improve the overall look and feel of your small space.
If you’re trying to create a particular look by remodeling your Atlanta home, design matters. Simply adding period-specific decor and furnishings to your home won’t give you the look and feel that you want. You’ll want to work with a remodeler who understands the structural requirements of your project. That’s one of the advantages of working with a design-build remodeling company.
The designers work hand-in-glove with the builders to ensure that everything works together. In other words, the designer won’t design something that the builders can’t build. They work together to get things done right the first time which results in a project that finishes on-time and on-budget.
