Last week I shared a kitchen remodel, now let’s take a look at their living and dining rooms. Before, the living room was divided by a wall with two cut out arches.
Using the same foot print, the dining room sits just off the kitchen. A built-in bench with a walnut top runs below the window, offering extra seating.
Though not the same angle, you can see the window and sliding door in this before:
And a better look at the bench, with a beautiful walnut table that can extend to seat 10.
One more before, just to drive home the point of how incredibly different these spaces are. Though the openings allowed people to mingle between rooms, it made the kitchen work space cramped.
The sofa now pulls double duty as seating and a movable room divider. Shelves will eventually flank the fireplace, as well as curtains and art to add more of these lively home owners personality to the space.
The knotty alder trim and dark rock fireplace seemed to swallow up all of the natural light this space had.
Now, the white shiplap fireplace flanked by white cabinets brighten the entire room. Walnut counters, hearth, and mantle balance the bright elements, warming it up.
Their chairs they already owned look stunning in the room, and contrast nicely against the cool blue sofa.
Opposite from that cabinet is this gorgeous view:
Before, the stairs were fine, but nothing great.
In place of the old vertical spindles, a sleek black horizontal metal railing is not only functional, but beautiful.
More to come soon, but are you enjoying seeing client projects in addition to our home?
