Remember our time capsule from the 1980's? The whole home remodel that promised to bring a home back to, if not the future, at least the present? We can't wait to show you the finished look.
To recap, we ripped out all of the cabinets, appliances, the flooring on the first floor, and the carpeting on the stairs and the second level. We demolished the wall that separated the kitchen and dining room to create an open concept kitchen, dining, keeping room. We took out the old banister on the foyer stairway, and we removed all of the light fixtures.
The new kitchen layout improves work flow, conversation, and style by a factor of 100! Ben sourced the amazing soapstone countertops for the homeowners -- certainly a distinctive statement!
Here we get a better look at the countertop and see the built-in pantry. The design allows for lots of storage while minimizing the chance of things getting lost or misplaced on deep shelves. A definite upgrade!
What an improvement -- more light, a cozy corner for conversation, reading, or wine & tapas! This mid-century modern inspired keeping room gets it right. The chandelier balances the angular lines of the chairs, and the browns & grays are brought to life with accent pillows in a light coral. On point!
The open concept works well here, and perfect for our homeowners, a couple whose children are grown and married. Perfectly comfortable for eating in the dining room, without feeling too formal, and great for visiting with the grandkids when they come over.
The foyer at the heart of the home ties it all together. A new paint scheme uses a neutral to lighten the spaces and tie the whole home together!
And, because we never get tired of a good Before & After, here goes a few side by side shots.
This big reveal showcased some big changes, and a lot of little changes, too. Most importantly, our homeowners have a home that is no longer stuck in another decade. Because of the smaller renovations we made throughout the house like new paint, new carpet, and new hardwoods, the effect is a total home transformation.
