Classic Home Design with Pops of Color
This Germantown home was tired and needed a lot of attention; a whole-home remodel was in order.
We began by smoothing the ceilings and completely re-painting throughout, including painting over the stained wood work, which helped brighten everything. We also removed outdated wallpaper. Finally, we added built-ins under the stairs and put in all new flooring.
In the kitchen, we created a more family-like atmosphere by removing part of the wall that separated the kitchen and family room. We relocated the laundry room and turned the former space into a wet bar and storage/drop-off area for coats and shoes.
We did a lot of work on the cabinets and counters. We installed new granite countertops and cabinet hardware, but reused some of the cabinets. By reusing many of the existing cabinets and adding a few new ones, we were able to create a completely new, custom-designed kitchen for the client and still save them some money. We removed the furr downs, replaced all cabinet doors and drawer fronts, and added trim work. We also painted, glazed, and sealed the cabinets. Finally, we reworked the existing pantry for more storage based on the client’s needs, and gave a touch of color to the room with the red door.
We completely gutted the master bath, adding space to expand the closets and give the client the room they needed. We installed new, custom-designed cabinetry from Omega Cabinetry with additional vertical storage areas and a bridge-style valance with lighting.
In the bathroom, we installed a larger, oval-shaped air bathtub that gives a comfortable, spa-like feel to the bathroom without taking up too much space. We enlarged the shower and opened the front doorway. We also added more lighting to brighten the shower area. The tile in the shower is travertine with a gravel-style inlay border and floor. The flooring is also travertine tile laid on a diagonal with 4×4 marble inlays.
