Our clients had a nice house in a wonderful neighborhood, but the overall flow needed improvement. The lack of lighting left something to be desired. On top of that, the kitchen appliance needed an upgrade. Moreover, several rooms, including the master bathroom and living room, needed to be renovated to achieve a consistent look throughout the house. Accordingly, with a good budget to work with, they decided a multi-room remodel would be optimal.
Obviously, one of the biggest advantages of a whole-house renovation is designing each room to complement the next. Plus, you can select all of the building materials together to further ensure consistency. Our clients worked closely with our interior designer with the intention of transforming their house into a dream home. The result is a more open and warm design updated with modern appliances and contemporary features.
The original kitchen space was cramped with a poor layout, and a wall between the family room and kitchen impeeded flow. The tile flooring looked out of place. Consequently, we demolished the wall and replaced the floor tiles with hardwood flooring. We constructed a large center island with a built-in wine chiller, a beer fridge and a custom wine rack on one side. The opposite side houses a stainless steel microwave. We customized a butcher block that matches the island countertop.
The cabinetry features furniture-grade wood allowing for a stunning finish. We took advantage of the high ceiling and extended the cabinets from floor to ceiling. We build a custom bay window bench seat by the dining room/breakfast nook. Then, we accessorized with undercabinet lighting and added handy pull-out drawers to neatly store kitchen supplies and to conceal the trashcan. Additionally, we installed a large, commercial-grade cooktop and vent hood along with a double oven to making cooking a pleasure. The refrigerator is built into cabinetry with doors that match the cabinets offering a stunning aesthetic.
Once a dimly lit kitchen, now the lighting is now outstanding. We installed can lighting and pendant lights throughout, but we made sure to hang chandeliers above the kitchen island. Similarly, we installed another above dining room table.
We also remodeled the living room. The original family room had a nice vibe and a great layout. However, the fireplace didn’t fit in, and the wall sitting between the family room and kitchen impeeded the overall flow of the house. Accordingly, we demolished the wall and removed the mantel on the fireplace. We resurfaced the fireplace, installed a new mantel, and mounted the television above. In addition, we built a beautiful custom bookshelf to the left to match the wood paneling on the wall and doors to the left. The results speak for themselves. The room now offers a warm and cozy, traditional look.
The next step in this multi-room remodel – renovating the master bathroom. Our clients wanted a walk-in shower as well as a bathtub. First, we removed the existing tub and shower. Then, we built a custom bathtub deck and a sizeable walk-in shower all as one unit. The shower easily fits two. Accordingly, it comes with two shower heads, but we also added a handheld shower for convenience. The frameless glass door adds a nice touch.
We used the same wall travertine wall panels and decorative glass backsplash in the shower as we did in the bath alcove and tub deck offering a complementary look. In addition, we built the shower and tub niches featuring LED lighting to provide a convenient place for toiletries. The can-lights above provide excelling lighting. The travertine flooring complements the shower walls and bathtub alcove and tub deck.
Opposite the bath alcove and shower, sit his and hers sinks and cabinetry. The cabinetry has the same wood finish as the bookshelf in the family room. We removed a wall between the two closets to make one large and open room. Her side features an accommodating custom-built vanity with a large mirror and pendant lights above. The cabinets feature pullout drawers and a ton of storage space. His side includes ample drawers for storage and custom towel racks. The finishing touch is the flat screen television.
As you walk from one room to another, you notice that each room has a look complementary to the next. However, each room also maintains a well-defined look. This kind of consistency is easily achieved only by a whole house renovation. Although taking on a multi-room remodel is expensive, if you have the budget, it is by far the best way to get a uniform look throughout your home. In this case, our clients have a home that is consistently beautiful throughout and that will inspire family and friends for years to come.
