Through our years of experience, we have found a few simple designs that are a favorite among clients and can be the one piece that turns their home from ordinary to extravagant! Here are a few of those designs!


This architectural addition can re-invent your home! Porticos can be added as a floating fixture above your outside door or attached to poles as a mini-porch effect. This design is a small addition that can change the entire look and feel of your home. It is an easy curb appeal improvement and offers practical uses as a shelter for your door. If you have a “flat” design or desire dimension, this is the perfect fix!

Natural light is the most simple and elegant design you can add to your home. A room fun of windows may sound simple, but just look at those photos! Glickman Designs have been transforming homes into places of tranquility for decades. If you can’t add on a sunroom, we can easily help you transform a current room into a natural light beauty you will never want to leave.

Spending extra attention to detail to kitchen cabinetry can be the difference between a bland kitchen and an appealing, elegant space. Adding trim to doors and open spaces can add luxury style. Wood trim is a small detail that can make a huge difference! Upgrading your counters to beautiful granite can also bring a touch of high-class as well!

We have used these design tricks to upgrade and construct dream kitchens that are Pinterest-worthy and magazine-ready. The pictures below show the amazing effect these designs add to a space.

Open Concept Showers

When designing your shower area, adding a walk-in door that leads into a large shower makes the bathroom feel open and big. If you have a small bathroom area, this can be a great way to take advantage of the space you have. Another great bonus to this design is mobility benefits. Large showers with open doorways can be a great addition to homes in need of handicap access. 

We love bath areas that feel welcoming, clean, and spacious. This is exactly what this design feature offers for you and your home!


Whether used as decoration, with cracking wood, or propane logs, a fireplace can be the perfect accent to any area! When you add a fireplace to your design, you not only create a built-in entertainment area but also create a warm atmosphere for any occasion. Fireplaces for indoor or outdoor use are a must-have to make your space look luxurious and well-designed.

Glickman Designs are notorious for our fireplace additions! We have experience in outdoor stone fireplaces for porches and also brick fireplaces for indoor use. We can help you build yours as well!

Simple designs go a long way! The small addition of wood trim on cabinetry or even a portico for your front door can transform your home completely!
