Going with the Flow
Feature Project in the 2023 RenoTour
The before and after of this stunning main floor renovation is breathtaking. Although the footprint mainly stayed the same, a half wall was removed between the kitchen and family room which really opened the flow between the two rooms.
The vision for this main floor renovation was coordinating each room with one another and unifying the whole space. A transitional style was maintained to fit the homeowners preferences and in keeping with the age of the home. It was important to embrace a warm neutral palette so their vibrant artwork from the East Coast was the center of attention!
Our design-build team was ecstatic to be helping bring this project to life! The plan was to create a space that can be a sanctuary to showcase souvenirs from various destinations and a space to enjoy quality time with family for years to come.
Removing the half-wall which separates the kitchen and living space helped to achieve a more open-concept floor plan. This made the space feel less segmented and allowed one to flow into another.
While only a few architectural elements were removed, it made a huge impact on the overall function & feel of the space. Removing obstructions and reconfiguring appliances in the kitchen allowed for each area to feel cohesive. The central staircase allowed all other areas of the home to flow together on the perimeter.
Consistency from one space to the next was extremely important. All materials and finishes were selected to ensure that each space is following the same palette, with different variations to maintain visual interest. The main neutral palette was used as a canvas for more vibrant artwork, while small pops of colour were used in other spaces where artwork is minimal.
WORTH THE WAIT!
Details including the custom wooden shelving and fireplace mantle, to the tiling work in the laundry room and powder room, create a timeless main floor that perfectly accents the homeowner’s lifestyle!
