Transforming a Dated Beachfront Condominium
Sonrise performed a renovation that transformed a Naples beachfront condominium into a home that showcases the clean style and textures so popular today. Removing walls, raising ceilings, and a myriad of upgrades turned a cozy but drab and dated beachfront condo into an open, airy living space that combined European styling with a Florida flair.
The main thrust of the project involved extensive changes and upgrades to the kitchen and dining room by opening and combining those areas. The owner’s request to increase the ceiling height was challenging. But we worked carefully with our partner architect and managed to achieve that wish. In addition to custom cabinetry and stone countertops, other improvements included new plumbing fixtures as well as cutting-edge LED ceiling and cabinet lighting. The original tile was replaced with stylish Legno Bastone wide wood plank flooring and custom baseboard molding.
The living room also received decorative crown molding and the walls and trim received fresh paint. In addition, miscellaneous repairs and/or upgrades were performed in other areas of the home such as the master bath. And lastly, custom automated roll-down. no-see-um screen shutters were added to the balcony allowing a panoramic view the Gulf of Mexico.
Working directly with the architect, Sonrise value-engineered the project to develop the most cost-effective design details possible.
Guest Suite Addition and Outdoor Kitchen in Grey Oaks
One of Sonrise Building’s more recent projects in Grey Oaks involved the addition of a 1,000 square foot guest suite complete with a living room with media wall, a spacious bedroom and bathroom, and a wine room. A custom outdoor kitchen was also added to the home’s pool area.
The guest suite addition features impressive 20’ ceilings in the living room and bedroom with 10’ ceilings in the remaining spaces. Expansive windows, sized proportionately with the high ceilings, were incorporated into the design of the bedroom and continued into the living room. A doorway leading from the bedroom to the outdoor pool deck was also incorporated.
The media wall in the living room features custom, solid wood cabinets providing ample storage for electronics and miscellaneous items.
The bath extends off the bedroom that includes a double vanity and a beautifully tiled oversized shower. And the wine room includes ample wine storage and a wine cooler all built in to custom designed cabinets.
Elegant white architectural moldings were incorporated throughout the addition’s interior that match the rest of the home.
Once again, Sonrise worked hand-in-hand with the architect to maximize features while minimizing cost without compromising quality.
A Remodel to Bring Florida Living to Its Finest Level
Florida homes are known for their spacious outdoor pool areas. However, some homeowners want to expand their existing cabana and pool area as well as improve virtually every other room in their house. While this particular home had a homey feel, the existing design and features were dull and lackluster. The owners desired a bright, fresh new look to their entire home, and Sonrise Building helped them to turn their dream into an enchanting reality.
The expertise of Sonrise Building with the expert professional eye of interior designer Natash Pereira was utilized to bring elegance and new life into the house. Along with an expansive outdoor kitchen and entertainment area, the indoor kitchen was transformed into a gorgeously modern room.
An open layout was a feature that the homeowners envisioned, and their wish was granted. New paint and new flooring throughout the entire home complemented the modern, airy new look, along with new outdoor kitchen cabinetry complete with stainless steel grill and marble countertops, all perfect for entertaining.

A New Sleek, Clean Look for a Dated Condo
Everyone in Naples knows that the best views to be found are those seen from the air along Gulf Shore Boulevard as residents gaze out of their windows at the Gulf and/or the Bay. The many tasteful and centrally located condominium towers along the street house some of Naples’ finest real estate properties, and it is no surprise that these easy-to-maintain properties are being snapped up all along the street. Although it’s not always easy to find a condo that matches your perfect tastes and needs, Sonrise Building Company can transition any outdated living space into a dream home.

When built in the mid 1970’s, this home offered the most modern features and amenities, from popcorn ceilings to domed kitchen lighting and now-antique KitchenAid appliances. Some renovations had been done in recent years, but the new owners wanted something that would reflect more of their own personal style and tastes, and which wasn’t so dated.
The owners of the unit hired Sonrise Building Company and his professional team of experts to create the perfect coastal hideaway, offering beautiful unobstructed views of the ocean and modern living conveniences. Beautiful features such as custom cabinets, state of the art air conditioning and a sleek new kitchen are just a few of the highlights from this project.

At the end, you find a luxurious bathroom with separate sinks and a closed toilet and shower area. The merger of beautiful functionality and tasteful design is present in every detail.

Opening Up An Older Home to Bring New Life
One of Sonrise Building Company’s most recent works is this gorgeously redone single family home in Grey Oaks, one of Naples most desired neighborhoods. With an original Southwestern design that included dark colors and tight spaces, the dated home was full of drabness and lacking life and distinct personality.
The original floor plan created confined spaces and restricted movement and flow throughout the home. The views of the beautiful outdoor living space were underwhelming and unspectacular. The task of turning this outdated dwelling into a stunning, modern home with more visually open space and functionality was difficult, but we saw this as a welcome challenge.
Sonrise Building’s construction expertise along with the expert professional eye of interior designer brought a fresh airiness to the home that is reminiscent of vacationing at the beach. The majority of the house was redone, with the main star of the show being the removal of sections of walls between the living room and family room to create a remarkable expanded new living area and dining room. Everything from the walls and floors to the bathrooms was also redone. The amazingly refreshing new living room gives family and guests enough space to move around and be comfortable.
The owners had a vision of transforming their stale space into an airy escape that boasted a light, airy feel. A desire to create a joyful ambiance in the home and a homey, yet almost regal feel was their mission, and Sonrise gladly obliged. The new spaces are perfect for relaxing, entertaining, and making happy memories.
A Summary of Work Completed
Kitchen: The kitchen was transformed into a gorgeous modern kitchen with beautiful new wood flooring, Vanilla Ice Pompeii quartz countertops, new appliances, custom cabinetry, and lovely decorative fixtures.
Living Room and Dining Room: A functional new living room and dining room were created by removing indicated sections of walls between the living room and family room including bar area. Beautiful new wood flooring was added, along with framed walls and coffered ceilings.
Foyer: The foyer was transformed with new wood flooring; a new French door at the opening to the dining room with glass transom above; and fresh paint. The result is a much more elegant entrance to the rest of the home.
Sonrise Building Company thoroughly understood the visions of the homeowners and brought professional expertise in the design and reconstruction of this lovely house. It is a literal transformation from dark and stuffy to bright, airy, and light, bringing welcome new life and vitality to the home. The owners are thrilled with the results, as they exceeded their original expectations.
