Home Renovations with C.R. Interior Designs

Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs, a renowned #HipNJ interior designer with over a decade of experience, knows how to find her way around a renovation. Take this advice from Architectural Digest should you be looking to break ground on your own this spring!

Bruce Irving, a realtor and home renovation consultant, tells Architectural Digest how you should seriously consider hiring both an architect and an interior designer at the starting line. “The two disciplines are separate, with separate training and knowledge stores, and since I believe strongly in the wisdom of investing in good design, I think you should have both involved, and preferably from the get-go,” he says. More help needn’t even be pricier, and could even be cheaper in the long term. “Having both from the start doesn’t mean you’ll be paying for both the whole time,” Bruce notes. “It will mean that the new space will be generated holistically rather than serially.”

Here are two images of a 2017 renovation designed and managed by C.R. Interior Designs, kitchen view during and after:
