Atlanta is a diverse city with a wide range of housing options. It has a variety of neighborhoods, each with its own distinct character and charm, that offer various cultural and lifestyle features, making it suitable for a wide range of people looking for a place to live. 

Below are some of the best design-build firms in Atlanta, Georgia. These firms are known for the stunning homes they have produced across the city’s iconic neighborhoods. Each of these firms has developed a process that efficiently combines design and building techniques, ensuring successful projects and a smooth construction process for its clients.

Copper Sky Design + Remodel

1155 Zonolite Rd., Suite A2, Atlanta, GA 30306

Copper Sky Design Remodel has been providing residents of Atlanta with design-build services for over two decades. Though its team of experienced professionals specializes in kitchen and bathroom remodels, home additions, and renovations, the firm has a particular focus on older homes, so it has renovated several notable houses in Atlanta’s historic neighborhoods. Regardless of the project type, however, the firm is committed to using high-quality materials and workmanship, as well as offering a satisfaction guarantee on all of its work. This approach has helped the firm gain a strong reputation over the years, leading it to be named as Remodeler of the Year for five consecutive years by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.

One of its notable projects has been the renovation of this home in Lake Claire, which included a full kitchen remodel, the addition of a screened porch, updates to the primary and children’s bathroom, and the transformation of the third-floor attic into an entertainment room, podcast studio, and full bathroom. The overarching aim was to provide the clients with more living areas, while simultaneously modernizing the kitchen and bathrooms to align with their contemporary way of life.

Atlanta Design & Build

1631 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA 30066

Since 1996, full-service remodeling firm Atlanta Design & Build has mainly worked on homes in the northern Atlanta suburbs, providing clients here with high-quality services. As members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), and Wellborn, its team strictly follows industry standards and is dedicated to providing excellent customer service. It also follows the HOMEStyle System, a client-centered approach that ensures that each remodeling project meets the specific needs and desires of the homeowner.

Highlighted here is one notable project completed by Atlanta Design & Build. The firm made this bathroom, which was previously squeezed into a narrow hallway, much more accessible. It did this by removing a wall between the bathroom and bedroom, as well as adding a rain-glass pocket door. The bathroom was also renovated with luxurious features, such as a heated tile floor, a heated towel rack, a walk-in shower, an infrared sauna, and white custom cabinetry. This highly successful renovation earned two NARI awards.
