Renovating one room really well can update the entire house.  The goal was to modernize the kitchen, but we were stuck with traditional elements like oak trim and arched shapes that weren’t part of the kitchen renovation. Instead of fighting with these less-than-modern exiting features, they were incorporated into the new space with a modern twist. Natural oak was used for the cabinetry, and arches show up in the range hood, custom table, and faucet shape.

Modern, but not cold. White walls and a modern style need not feel stark and clinical. Natural warm-toned materials like stone and wood are mixed with cool glass and stainless steel throughout the main living area and kitchen.

Crestview Ensuite

To make the master bedroom and bathroom feel like one big european-style suite, we replaced the awkward door with a 7-foot wide opening, and continued the same luxury vinyl plank flooring into the bath area to avoid choppy flooring transitions.

Project:
Master bathroom
Challenge:
To expand a basic small bathroom to include a walk-in shower and seperate soaker tub in an open-concept master suite. To gain an extra 3 feet for the shower, an under-used hallway closet was appropriated.
