May is National Home Improvement Month, so throughout the past few weeks, we have posted detail photos every day (every weekday and non-holiday, that is). Here is a compilation of some Bartelt details!
- This range hood serves as a focal point, or anchor, of the kitchen. It stands out, yet blends well with the cabinetry and style of the space.
- The base of this butcher block adds a pop of color to the kitchen, and the knife storage keeps tools within reach of where the homeowners need it.
- This kitchen niche not only adds interest to the backsplash, but it is also a great spot to store frequently used spices and oils.
- A furniture-style island leg is an important aspect of the kitchen. The island is no longer just a work station, it’s a beautiful piece of furniture.
- Showcasing the homeowners’ style, this kitchen pendant offers ambient and task lighting over the island.
- The roll-out pantry allows the homeowners to take advantage of the entire depth of the cabinet without having to dig through boxes and canned goods.
- This hammered copper countertop is the perfect addition to a lower level bar.
- A Tuscan-style lower level features textured plaster walls and arched brick openings.
- These chalkboard doors are a fun addition to a lower level playroom.
- A finished basement is a great opportunity to get creative with your lighting!
- Here is a close-up of that unique lower level fireplace, the face of Prometheus.
- Check out this grand, double-door entrance into the master bath! The arched doorway mimics the arch above the large soaking tub.
- Not only does a recessed niche add character to a bathroom, but it is also perfect for decor or storage needs.
- The tub’s handshower offers a classic and sophisticated look.
- This steam shower has frameless glass panels, a pivoting transom, and Pietra Calacatta, an innovative porcelain tile that looks like marble, but holds up to the steam.
- A wall-mounted faucet, slate tile, and boulder vessel sink help achieve a rustic aesthetic in this home’s powder room.
- This custom, built-in bed takes advantage of an existing alcove and is the perfect spot for the homeowners’ grandchildren to snuggle in for a sleepover.
- In this library, a knotty alder coffered ceiling adds warmth and character.
- An arched opening between the sunroom and back hall keeps the spaces separate yet open to one another.
- The fieldstone and barn beams on this sunroom fireplace tie into the home’s exterior and create a nice balance of rustic and refined.
