The miraculous transformation of three separate rooms becoming one modern open space
Scope of work
The goal of the renovation was to give Edward and Mary their dream space by creating an open concept for the entire main floor. This meant integrating the kitchen, living room, and dining room together by removing the supporting walls surrounding the kitchen. We wanted three separate spaces to become one open entertaining space.
A family that loves to entertain
Edward and Mary are the type of family that envision their home to be the center of everything. This means constant movie nights, game nights, holiday dinners, and slumber parties with their children’s friends. However, the existing main floor had walls separating the kitchen from the living space. hallway and family room. This segregated and compartmentalized layout made it harder for Edward and Mary to watch their kids and interact with their guests. For example, when one person was in the kitchen preparing a meal and the rest of the family was in the living room watching TV the entire family was disconnected. More importantly, when entertaining guests this compartmentalized floor play encouraged overcrowding in one area of the house. It was very clear what needed to be done but Edward and Mary were very unsure if their vision was feasible within their budget.
Removing the load bearing walls allowed for natural light to travel throughout the space. To brighten up all adjacent spaces we replaced the bay window at the back of the house to a 6’ French door. Not only did it add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to the space but it provided a visual bridge between the indoors and the outdoors.
Duo-color cabinetry and quartz countertops gives the kitchen a sense of luxury and prestige. A 10’ long island was added to the kitchen layout, which provided incredible counter space and additional seating for guests. The island featured pullout drawers, pullout doors, a wine fridge, and an under-counter microwave. More importantly, it was a comfortable space where the kids to do their homework.
An open concept space perfect for work, rest, and play
