Here is the BEFORE kitchen. After much deliberation and exploration, we've decided the existing layout really works the best with traffic flow throughout the kitchen. We will be changing orientation of the island and including countertop eating space with stools at the peninsula. We will also be putting new floor tile and wall finish in the laundry room at the back of the kitchen.
In addition to new bamboo floors, we will be doing maple, shaker style cabinetry with stainless steel applicances with grey blue accents in paint and backsplash tile. As for countertops, we will be doing a combination of granite and quartz product.
In the family room, we again will have new bamboo floors, new maple bookcases that flank the fireplace to tie the kitchen and family room together. The fireplace hearth will be lowered somewhat and get a new top of granite. The fireplace will "possibly" get retiled with a large greyish tile over the brick.
BEFORE family room
In the BEFORE dining room, we are again getting new bamboo floors. The existing wallpaper, which is a gorgeous handmade paper, will stay as well as the fabulous, somewhat retro, yet super cool and elegant, chandelier. I personally love it! My client just recently inherited a gorgeous Drexel Heritage dining table, chairs, and buffet which will replace the above set. We will be reupholstering the chairs with a punch of color and adding new window treatments!
The BEFORE living room will also get bamboo floors, we will keep the blue handmade wallpaper, but will get new furniture, a rug, and window treatments as well.
Stay tuned for updates as we proceed!!!
