UPDATE 1: The Design
Behind The Design
Our clients love their home and neighborhood but wanted to make some changes to accommodate their growing family. Their wish list included:
- A new larger Kitchen, more open to the rest of the home
- Adding a main level Powder Room
- Creating a Mudroom/Drop-zone area for coats, boot, and bags
- Enlarging the Owner’s Bedroom to fit a king-size bed
- Dedicated Office space
They love the charm and character of their 1923 home. So, we selected finishes, fixtures, and hardware that would blend with the home’s original finishes inside and out. Outside, the Addition exterior will seamlessly match the home’s existing brick and stucco.
The Kitchen & Mudroom Designs
The Kitchen design features white quartz countertops, a white subway tile backsplash, white upper cabinets, and lower cabinets stained to match the home’s original woodwork. Creating a larger Kitchen allows ample room for modern stainless steel appliances and a large island with seating. The design includes several new windows that will fill the new Kitchen with lots of natural light. The window casings and other millwork will be stained to match the color of the home’s existing casework. We’ll add a door that opens from the Kitchen to the backyard. The new Mudroom, just off the Kitchen, features built-in storage, a bench, and coat hooks.
The Powder Room & Master Bath Designs
The home’s original layout didn’t have a Bathroom on the first floor, so we are adding a Powder Room in the hall between the new Kitchen and existing front Living Room. The new first-floor Powder Room design features satin brass fixtures and 2″ x 2″ white hexagon floor tile. We’ve chosen a bold dark blue (Sherwin Williams Salty Dog) for the Powder Room paint color. A pocket door stained to match the home’s existing woodwork will finish the space.
We’re adding a new Master Bath to the second floor. The Master Bath design palette features satin nickel fixtures grey hexagon floor tile. A white subway tile will be installed in a herringbone pattern in the shower. We chose a calm, neutral paint (Sherwin Williams Gray Matters) for the walls.
The Owner’s Bedroom
Our clients wanted a Bedroom large enough for a King bed. The new Addition to the back of the house will allow for a larger Owner’s Suite on the second floor, with built-in cabinetry and a large closet for increased storage. Fixtures include craftsman inspired wall sconces and a ceiling fan in a bronze finish. We selected Sherwin Williams Gray Matters for the walls.
