What goes into the Design Process for a Flip House?

Take a look below at the design process and what went into making our latest flip a complete HOME RUN!

We close our latest flip next month and this one went by quickly! We are so happy with how this turned out, and also so happy that we now have a great routine established to be more efficient in both budget and timing in our flips.


The Master Bath:

With this flip being a smaller house we knew that the bathrooms needed to stand out to give it some more character. Since black and white is having such a moment right now I wanted to add that element into the master bath. The master is a small space but the design made a big impact on the appeal of the house.

In the master I chose a 9×10 size matte black hexagon tile floor for the bathroom floor. To compliment that I chose classic 3×6 white subway tile in the shower and a black penny tile floor. I chose black grout to keep this space a little more modern.

The vanity is a cool light wood modern style and we did chrome hardware in this area with more modern lines. Overall, this quickly became my favorite room in the house. 


The Guest Bath:

The guest bath stayed a bit more classic. I chose a 12×12 size marble looking tile for the bathroom floor with a light grey grout.

Ironically we found a handmade subway tile in the backyard of this home when we closed on it, and we were able to use that for the tub surround in the guest bath.

I chose a grey vanity in here to add some color and it helped pull together the complete look in this bathroom. 


The Kitchen:

This flip is extra special because the buyers of this flip put in a contract on the house before we had finished the house. The bathrooms were the only thing finalized. We had picked out the flooring but the buyers wanted to add the laminate into all the bedrooms so we were able to make that change for them.

The only thing in the kitchen that was picked out were the cabinets. The buyer was able to go with me to pick out her own countertops.

I was originally planning to do a grey quartz and she wanted it to be white. She ended up choosing a white quartz and it turned out great. She also wanted a more handmade looking subway tile in a bigger size.


Black Hexagon Tile:

The other change she was able to make in the design was adding in the matte black hexagon tiles to the back of the island/bar area.

The buyer fell in love with the master bathroom and immediately asked where else she could incorporate this tile.

I love what this detail adds to the kitchen area and it’s a personalized detail that makes this house even more special for the new owners. 


The Exterior:

For the exterior of the home I was planning to paint the brick grey with white trim. The new buyers really preferred white with black trim and I am so glad that we made this change.

It looks so fresh and crisp and the curb appeal is amazing.


This was a fun project and our first ever flip to have a buyer finalized before the house was finished. We would love to have the opportunity to do more of these in the future and really be able to have our end buyers be able to customize their new home to make it their own.
