An 80’s colonial was fully transformed with a whole house renovation. The clients were frustrated by the awkward kitchen layout and dated materials. The new design solved the problem of inefficient appliance locations and strange pantry design that interrupted the flow of the space. An eight-foot long island was introduced as the new central work space hub. Authentic marble countertops, backsplashes as well as nickel hardware/fixtures evoke the grandeur of a french country chateau. A new built-in dinette banquet with cushioned benches creates a cozy informal eating area, which takes up less space than a freestanding table.
A new second floor en-suite continues this classical material palette and provides a generous space for the clients’ morning routines. The space includes a freestanding soaking tub, walk-in (doorless) master shower, separate vanities, and an individual water closet. New built-in armoires at the master bedroom create more closet space without moving walls or taking away bedroom space.
