Kitchen & Bathroom Redesign
After working with this client previously to design & build a studio over their existing garage, we were asked to come back to tackle other key areas of their home. The goal of this round of improvements was to help them re-imagine the function of two primary spaces.
Our design team incorporated into the bathroom design a barrier-free, walk-in steam shower with floor-to-ceiling glass, a floating vanity, and heated flooring. For finishes, the designers proposed a natural white oak. A large window in the steam shower brings plenty of natural light into the space.
Utilizing opaque full-glass doors in the transitions to neighboring spaces further allows the sharing of the natural light into adjacent areas. The mirror above the vanity, which spans from countertop to ceiling, further reflects the light and creates a feeling of a much larger space.
The kitchen was the other main focus of this phase of work. What was previously a dark room laden with heavy finishes, wood beams, and one small window, was transformed into another bright, airy space. The designers added two pass-throughs between the kitchen and sunroom to open up the spaces and create volume. The added sunlight combined with new soft gray cabinets, white tile, and light-veined quartz countertops creates a relaxing and inviting space.
The adjacent spaces of the sunroom, breakfast nook & connecting hallway all continue with the same finishes to build a cohesive and unified look. The addition of a custom-lighted bookshelf to the hallway helps transition the new spaces to the original home while blending modern design elements and contemporary details with the more traditional aspects of this home.
