The cozy living room mixes soft neutrals with warm browns and blacks. The gray brick fireplace is flanked by low bookcases with open and hidden storage. A blue-and-white rug defines the seating area.
The open floor plan combines the kitchen, dining room and home office into a multi-functional, family-friendly space. Soft gray walls set a neutral backdrop, while warm hardwood ground the space.
A simple bar area is functional for any kitchen or open living space. Cabinets add storage, while extra counter space is perfect for mixing drinks while entertaining. It can also serve as a breakfast or brunch bar for morning gatherings.
The open concept kitchen pairs clean white cabinets with contrasting black countertops. White subway tile is used for a classic backsplash, while warm hardwood floors ground the space. Stainless steel appliances bring a modern touch to the cottage kitchen.
White Shaker cabinets pair with gray countertops and subway tile backsplash for a soft, welcoming color palette. Pantries with open shelves and pull-out drawers provide much-needed storage in the kitchen.
This home is located in a highly desirable neighborhood, but did not offer the space that a growing family would require. Originally built in the 1940s and featuring solid construction, a complete home renovation made the most sense. The renovation includes an addition on the rear of the home, adds a complete second level with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as opens up the main level to create a highly desirable open concept featuring an office, mudroom and gourmet kitchen.
This family added 800 square feet of living space during their complete home renovation so they could stay in the neighborhood they loved. A cast-in-place concrete floor is installed for the porch, so they could create a full storage space under the porch.
