 COtY Award Entry:  Residential Interior: $100,001 – $250,000  

An all-new laundry room, powder room, mud room—and show-stopping kitchen remodel  

 Picking up from where we left off in our last blog… 

The homeowner wanted a fireplace that could be seen from the kitchen and family room. Where there was an existing wall between the two rooms, a vent-free, see-through unit was installed and dressed on both sides with distressed brick pavers (Marazzi® Urban District BRX 4” x 8” Glazed Paver) and floating wood mantles.

In the laundry room, we installed grey cabinetry (Reliable Cabinets Waypoint Maple/Stone) with counters in Aventine Quartz in Vogue, and matte white subway tile (Crossville Retro-Active Pure White 3” x 12” Subway) dotted with black glass diamonds (Bliss Black Timber Glass Slate Mosaic Blend).

The old garage bay gets a new purpose.                 

The original laundry room lacked storage & counter space. 

 AFTER 

There is ample storage in this space, with a fold-out ironing board and pull-out drying rack. To give the homeowner the butler’s pantry feel that was desired, we selected a farmhouse sink, Kohler Whitehaven Apron-Front, and pull-down faucet. Both this room and the kitchen enjoy magnificent views of the lake in her front yard. 

A new half-bath was added and built-in shelving was created to display treasures and keepsakes. Incorporating the homeowner’s love of wallpaper gives the bathroom a beautiful finish. A mirror and lights belonging to her mother were installed in the space to complete the look and honor a memory. 

 BEFORE 

 AFTER 

This interior remodel was a uniquely satisfying project because it was such a meaningful journey for the homeowner. This renovation allowed her to update her home and celebrate the memory of her mother in the most beautiful way. I’m honored to have been a part of it.
