I am really excited to walk you through the remodel of this multi-functional family space. Our clients have been in their custom built home for over 18 years. They have grown and evolved in how they use the spaces and it was time to freshen things up over all.
It was time for a change from the dated floor plan of the peninsula and raised bar eating area. The dark colors made the narrow kitchen seem even smaller than it really is.
The old island wasn’t practical and just felt like an oddly placed piece.
The tone on tone color scheme from the cabinets, to the walls, to the countertops didn’t allow for anything to grab your eye.
The family spends a lot of time using this multi purpose space. So breathing new life into it was essential.
Removing the peninsula for better flow opened these areas up to each other so much more.
We chose to maximize the storage and show off the ceiling height by taking the cabinets all the way to the ceiling.
Installing a new, taller, window with a black mullion detail added interest and tied in the dark accent color that carries around the room.
Choosing a matte black for the hood made this wall pop and created balance in the room against the sink wall. You can see how that matte black accent is a theme throughout the new spaces.
The fireplace was updated with new flanking cabinets to match the island and wet bar. A honed limestone hearth and face were installed and a reclaimed mantle was painted in a faux finish to blend in with the stone surround.
Now these rooms feel tailored yet are comfortable to live in. The overall soft color palette gives them a timeless look they can enjoy for many years to come.
