  • 10A Hillside: Addition Remodel After working on this house for the last owner, the new owner loved what we did and asked us to design out their enclosed garage and add a 1/2 bath.
  • 10A Hillside: Pre-Sales Prep So the homeowner of this GHI home in Greenbelt, MD had already moved months earlier but left many odds and ends. Our mission was to create a light, bright and sharp palette for buyers to see how wonderful this 3 bedroom home could be. With a limited budget, we picked and choose the most important and affordable improvements that would make the biggest impact.
  • 11304 Kenton Place: Kitchen This wonderful example of mid-century style this jewel box of an Eichler inspired home from the 50's had a kitchen stuck in a bad 80's update. Now it has a perfectly befitting contemporary mid-century inspired kitchen. We used enamel white cabinetry from a big-box store to add needed storage while creating the "floating" upper cabinets indicative of 50's contemporary homes. Then top it off with the teal glass tiles that bridge the 'kitschy' 50's with today's take on mid-century style.
  • 115 Northway This kitchen served my clients for many wonderful years. It just wasn't a wonderful kitchen. It lacked storage and the appliances were at the end of their life cycle. We addressed all of this by increasing the storage, new appliances, and more workable space, all without increasing the size of the kitchen or breaking the budget.
  • 11F Ridge: Kitchen & Powder Room The homeowner purchased this house in the middle of 2020 with everything gone on. This was a lovely location here in Greenbelt but the house needed some love and attention (in other words design). Working closely with the homeowner the house got new flooring, new paint job, reworked master bedroom and a new kitchen and powder room.
  • 12 Greendale: Kitchen Greenbelt is famous for its historic 1937 homes. Equally important to the community are the many single-family ranches built in the historic area in the '50s and '60s. This ranch on Greendale had seen some interesting and ugly renovation in its 1/2 century of life but this new young owners looking were looking to create a wonderful home and breath new life into their new home and community. They ask me to help give some real CPR to what was supposed to be a kitchen. The results are stunning.
  • 14D Ridge Kitchen This early 20th-century Greenbelt row house just got some a young 21st-century family as its new owners. We took their tiny kitchen and dining area and turned it into an open living space that feels contemporary while nodding to its 20th-century international style roots.
  • 16th Ave This 1958 mid-century ranch was a mess when our clients purchased the property in 2005. We worked with the owners a few times over the 9 years they owned this property. First, we came in a cleaned out the funky, dirty, and old feeling this house had. Addressing the yard, pool, patio, flooring, wall colors, and outdated kitchen. The last time we worked on this house was so the owners could move and rent this house. There was a bidding war!
  • 17K Ridge: Bathroom I was brought in by the contractor to plan out a remodel of an existing full bath and laundry on the first floor. The contractor wanted a simple "don't change" anything design. The homeowners deserved more.
  • 1C: A Kitchen This is the perfect kitchen for the perfect owner of this 900 sqft. townhome. This 10'x5' kitchen is the perfect size for 1 with 24" appliances and open shelving and white cabinets to keep this modern farmhouse kitchen bright and inviting.
  • 2 Northway Built-in 1937 this wonderful home was and is part historic Greenbelt, MD. Part of the New Deal these homes were built to be part first planned community. We updated this international style home by both modernizing the home as the planners intended and acknowledging the historic nature of the building. Notice the color blocking of the exterior paint scheme as it is the same as the original 1930's architect and planned. The only one painted this way in the community
  • 25 Ridge: Art Deco Bathroom Not just another 1937 GHI bathroom. This one looks back to the Arc Deco period that was so popular in the 1930s and celebrates the glamour and style while still staying modern and fresh.
  • 2B Northway So it looks like I am slowly going to be making over my entire court. This is the 5th house out of 10 that I have transformed. This wonderful house was owned by a neighbor that after 30 years in the home and at 94 years old finally moved into a retirement community. It was sad to see her move but I was glad to know that she would have new friends and people around to keep her company. That left the house to be managed by her grandson, who turned to Be Smart Homes to help turn a house stuck in the 80's to one today's buyers would want. He was thrilled with the results, and I think you will too.
  • 2J Northway Pre-Sales Prep 2J Northway is a neighbor of ours. After the loss of its owner, the family contracted Be Smart Homes to refresh and prep the house to go on the market. Our task was to refresh this 80-year-old home, to highlight the architectural beauty while downplaying the 80 years of life.
  • 2J Northway: Everything 2J Northway is a neighbor of ours. In 2019 after the loss of its owner, the family contracted Be Smart Homes to refresh and prep the house to go on the market. Our task was to refresh this 80-year-old home, to highlight the architectural beauty while downplaying the 80 years of life.
  • 2M Research Our client needed a new 1/2 bathroom added to the first floor to address mobility concerns. Like most clients, they had ideas and plans for what would be the best place for this new bath along with some other storage and usage issues. Our job is to listen to their needs, access their plans, and then come up with the best plan for the space to exceed their needs. We determined the best way to address using the spaces they had to address their needs was to use an underused mud and storage room and turn it into a new accessible 1/2 bathroom and laundry room. The client was very happy with the plan and the end result exceeded their expectations. That is what we strive for every time.
  • 2Q Plateau Place: Kitchen The owners of this home are a young couple just starting their family. Their townhouse just didn't have a kitchen that was functional for a family of 3. So we help them reimage this small space and gave them the plans to implement their kitchen.
  • 33A Ridge: Bathroom A remodel of this 5x7 standard 1937 Greenbelt Homes bathroom. The homeowner what something classic and really wanted some type of border. We selected this beautiful classic white and grey marble mosaic with 1/2" grey marble semi-rounded pencil trim.
  • 3P Research: Kitchen, Bath and Powder Room A client with great taste and a small house. She was in need of an upgrade to the basic kitchen and wanted to add in a new guest bathroom and update her own main bathroom. We infused big style to a small house with an appropriate budget for the house.
  • 41 Lakeside: Master Bath After 20 years in their custom-built home, it was time to update. The one-room everyone waits on is their own Master Bathroom. This is because we all think no one important is going to see it. Well, you see it every day. My client, after raising their family in this home realized it was time to give themselves a wonderful treat and update their bath into a retreat. With Calcutta gold porcelain tiles, mushroom brown vanity and shower pan, and punched with a blush ceiling. Which creates a wonderful warm glow to everything.
  • 45Q Ridge Our client was looking for a modern retro style that would not break the bank. In addition to that request to re-use the one original 1937 metal kitchen cabinet left from prior owner renovations. We were up to the challenge and look forward to preserving a piece of Greenbelt history.
  • 4H Laural: Pre-Sales Prep 4H Laural first contracted Be Smart Homes to design a new bathroom for their GHI framed home. We were glad too. As soon as we finished the design and ready to contract with our contractor, life moved on. In this case to Florida. So now instead of updating, we were going to get the home ready for the market. The homeowners opted for our "Honey Do" report which put a lot of the choice and work on their shoulders. With guidance and a bit of help from us, they sold their house in a week after going on the market.
  • 4H Southway: Kitchen Sometimes the best way to start a new life together is to make the home you share reflect both of you. A couple that was just moving in together and planning on getting married felt that way. My job was to take a home that was hers and make it theirs. They have been happily married for more than a year and their home is a blend of both of their taste and looks great!
  • 6Q Hillside: Bathroom The homeowner didn't feel the pink and black bathroom from the 80's was his style. He wanted something timeless, simple, quietly elegant and most of all black and white.
  • 7A Ridge This 11x19' kitchen need to house 11 different appliance and still have room for 4 people to sit and eat a meal. It was tight. Well we are very pleased with the results.
  • 7E Crescent: Kitchen We have finished another 1937 GHI kitchen here in our hometown of Greenbelt. These clients were looking for a retro kitchen with an original focus on the kitschy '50s but through 3 design rounds and 3 concepts, the final design is a far more modern take on Mid-century with elements from the '50s, '60s, and early '70s. They love it.
  • 9J Research This was a new home for its home owner but it needed a little love. The seller really should have called us, but they didn't. Good for the new owner as she was able to pick out new paint colors, bathroom textures and fixtures, and get a new first floor.
  • 9J Research 9J Research: Post Purchase Update This was a new home for its homeowner but it needed a little love. The seller really should have called us, but they didn't. Good for the new owner as she was able to pick out new paint colors, bathroom textures, and fixtures, and get a new first floor.

  • Bathrooms Everyone has one in their house but not everyone likes what they have. Bathrooms like everything do wear out. Refreshing your bath is important. It's where you start every morning and end every day. Why not do it somewhere that doesn't have tiles following off the wall, mold that can't be cleaned, and toilets that don't stop running. A new bath is a great thing.

  • Woodland Way: Kitchen Reno The mid-century home built by a local legend and historical figure was beginning to show its age especially in the kitchen. The goal was to create a bright and inviting kitchen that was modern but would still fit with the mid-century house and natural surrounding that define the historical town of Greenbelt
