Dan and Michele absolutely loved their home’s location and their neighborhood, but the inside of their home didn’t meet all their needs. They have three children, love to entertain and also occasionally work from home. Their home had to be functional for every purpose they needed, while also being stylish. Their current home was very compartmentalized, so they also wanted a more open floor plan. Their remodel included a master bathroom, home office, kitchen, dining area and living room.
Making sure the master bath had plenty of room for the couple to move around comfortably while getting ready was key. We installed a his and hers sink and counter space that hugged the corner, so they could have a bit more room on either side. The slate gray cabinets provide plenty of storage space. An exciting feature of the cabinets is a pullout lined with metal – this stores hot tools like hair dryers or curling irons without damaging the wood of the cabinet. The Cambria Whitecliff countertops also line the tub deck, to create visually symmetry. A separate shower and bath allows the couple flexibility and room when relaxing.
Space to work from home was key, and Dan and Michelle wanted plenty of room in their home office. The space was nautically-inspired, with beautiful navy cabinets lined with white and gold. These details add sophistication without it feeling too themed. The main desk area can accommodate multiple people if needed, with a small bench area behind for additional seating and storage.
This modern kitchen is truly stunning. The former kitchen cabinets were a dark cherry, which made this area feel more cramped. The white cabinets and backsplash add a brightness to the space and a sleek look. We mixed metals and used dark and silver accents in order to bring some contrast into the room. The unique metal hood over the stovetop echoes the dark gray of the kitchen island. Since this family entertains informally and often, they wanted a TV in the kitchen. An additional table adds more room to sit and talk. Now this kitchen is perfect for entertaining and family dinners. The family also wanted to add a small desk that the kids could use for school work.
Dining Room and Living Room
The old living room felt cut off from the rest of the house, so it was important to Dan and Michelle that it be a more open floor plan. We kept the fireplace as an informal room divider, but left an open wall so the space felt more accessible. It also gives the living room a bit of a nook, so while it feels open it also feels like its own room. The gorgeous wooden dining table echoes the mixed wood of the floor and the bay window frames and also features a cozy dining bench. Modern chandeliers over the table cast light in an elegant glow.
We were so excited to help Dan and Michelle with this ambitious home remodel. The final results are breathtaking and functional for their family.
