Built in the 1920s, this project was a complete gut renovation. When we bought this house it had already been taken down to the studs by the previous owner. After sitting unoccupied for many years, we stepped in to restore the house.
In the kitchen we chose white shaker style cabinets, white quartz counter tops, white subway tile, polished nickel fixtures, light grey walls, and warm wood accents. We removed a wall between the kitchen and living room to open up the space. We made use of an awkward nook, by creating a cozy built in breakfast nook, which actually became my favorite space in the entire house. Click the slide shows below to see before and after angles of the space.
In the front of the house, we also removed a wall which separated the living room with what was at one time an old porch. This created a totally open floor plan downstairs allowing you to see all the way through to the kitchen upon entering. We added wardrobes to create a “mudroom.”
