More money had been put into the grandeur of the 1990s home rather than quality finishes. The homeowners desired spaces that not only functioned better but also had more character. The exterior of the home was updated with lower maintenance materials. An addition was built to create extra space off the kitchen and accommodate a larger laundry room. Details – a coffered ceiling, crown molding, paneling, a custom hickory floor, and built-ins – added charm to the interior. The remodeled kitchen now serves as an entertaining hub and boasts double islands, custom cabinetry, and a better connection to other spaces.
The first floor wasn’t conducive to the family of five’s lifestyle and entertaining. It was dated and compartmentalized. They desired more connection between spaces, and they wanted their home to be a reflection of their style. With the removal of walls, the kitchen expanded into the formal dining room and is now open to other entertaining spaces. The kitchen is timeless, modern and charming – white furniture-style cabinetry, a jewel-toned island, a custom butcher block, and black and brass hardware and fixtures. The remodel also updated the three-season room and created a more functional entry and laundry room.
