A large, light filled kitchen with dark blue lower cabinets and white upper cabinets, featuring a large island with waterfall quartzite counters and multiple windows and skylights.

It was a joy working with our clients to transform their treasured home from a modest 2,200sf with small, closed, and dark spaces into a 3,600sf dream home with open, bright spaces tailored exactly to their family’s needs.

A traditional split-level, the entrance to the home opens to the kitchen, dining, and living spaces.

The added square footage on this level doubled the size of the kitchen! The client opted for three large windows and two skylights in the kitchen, flooding it with natural light. The corner between the kitchen addition and dining area was engineered to allow for a cornerless Nana Wall system, creating a seamless flow to the covered deck and backyard.

The focal point of the kitchen is the 5’x8’ island with waterfall quartzite counters. The natural veining is magnificent and compliments the dark blue lower cabinets in Cheating Heart. The upper cabinets were kept white to add to the brightness of the room. Dual appliance garages help keep the counters clear, while the open shelf is ideal for displaying art and meaningful pieces.

A walk-in pantry with a walnut barn door and the 4’ paneled refrigerator provide ample storage space while minimizing visual clutter. The three large windows sit right at the counter level, creating a seamless look.

New, oversized windows in the dining area maximize the light in the space and provide views into the backyard that were previously obscured. The fireplace in the living room was converted to a linear gas insert with a minimal look and a 13’ stone bench below. Kentwood Oak floors throughout provide the perfect amount of warmth.

The entry space is more inviting than ever with heated tile floors. Not only does it welcome guests, but it also provides the transition point between the upper and lower levels, which we’ll look at next!
