This residence was once two distinct homes patched together. The remodel joined the parts into a whole, with better circulation, more functional spaces, and a style that spoke to the past as well as the current homeowner’s personality.
The kitchen was upgraded with a clay tile backsplash, a Big Chill refrigerator, and Ikea cabinets with bright copper hardware.
Prior to the remodel, the entrance to the master bedroom was located where the new range now sits. Reconfiguring this circulation made an awkward kitchen fully functional, with no need to enlarge the footprint of the room.
In the new butler’s pantry, existing cabinetry was updated with new paint, hardware, and a quartz countertop.
Once a room with no purpose, the new butler’s pantry holds a mix of new and old cabinetry. Rose pink covers the walls, trim, and cabinetry to incorporate a favorite color in an unexpected way.
The master bath includes all new fixtures and finishes but retains a period style with the pedestal tub and console sink. New built-in cabinetry provides much needed storage in a small bath.
A new mud room was created from an old enclosed porch. Functional with lots of storage and durable materials, the room is a perfect entry from the back yard.
The second kitchen was converted to a spacious new laundry room. An original ironing board cabinet was repurposed from another room, and the vintage cabinetry and countertops were restored.
