After spending many years in their home raising a family, husband and wife, Angie and Jeff, found themselves looking into a home that carried the special memories of years gone by, but dragging the style of those years with it. Angie especially loved the home and the location, but began considering a new home purchase. She dreamed of new finishes, a more functional kitchen, updated colors, a master bath that felt more like a retreat, and a living room that welcomed her home at the end of each day.
After much consideration, Angie and Jeff decided they loved their home too much to wave goodbye in order to enjoy an updated lifestyle. This began a search for the perfect design plan to help them fall in love with their home once more. Many clients are seeking function or a particular style, but our goal throughout this project was to help Angie and Jeff simply love living in their space again.
The kitchen is what we see in a typical build from a few decades ago. It is accented with fluorescent overhead lighting, 12x12 ceramic tile with dark grout, and white raised panel laminate cabinets.
Additionally, the homeowners hoped to create a feel of openness which seemed to be a challenge in a kitchen with an odd layout. The corner sink and reduced counterspace interfered with function. The living room and dining room met one another with competing flooring, and the fireplace is seen here not living up to its potential. Once again, a traditionally framed closet reduces the usable space in the master bath.
Angie and Jeff were patient and flexible as the project took shape and more ideas were introduced in order to maximize space and create the overall style. They determined mid-project that it was worth the cost to tackle the removal of the prison-like columns that welcomed guests into the dining room (and tried to keep them there). The number and size of the columns was just too much for the space.
Angie and Jeff were transitional in their style and opted for a classic look that would stand the test of time. We know. We know. You want to see the finished product! We were just as excited to see this one finished! What a beautiful place to call home...
