Flipping the floor plan

Tammy Johnson, CKD, Lampert wood

This 1974 Cape Cod-style home had a small kitchen tucked away in the middle of the downstairs floor plan, but there was no space for the large open bar that the customer desired. The client certainly wanted one, ideally located in a convenient location that would allow easy access to both the interior and the newly landscaped backyard and garden. The kitchen has been moved to the family room and the old kitchen space has become a full bar. This entertainment spot features an under-counter beverage cooler, wine cooler, and single-drawer dishwasher. Pocket doors and corner drawers showcase the glassware.

Most spectacular transformation: the kitchen

Mary Maney, CKBD, ASID, CLIPP, Cristal Kitchen + Bath

The original layout of this cramped kitchen was problematic. The aisle between the island and the refrigerator was too narrow, and the walk-in pantry took up precious space and made the center of the house even smaller. In addition to an improved layout, customers wanted a classic kitchen design with glass-to-ceiling cabinets that matched the existing hardwood floors and nearby family room bookcases. The designer opted for a U-shaped layout, which made room for a new pantry and a stunning 42-inch slanted range hood featuring two-tone coloring, stripes of slats and crown molding details. defined. A counter-depth built-in refrigerator with a panel front blends in perfectly with the new cabinets, which not only feature accessories but also provide additional storage space.

Most spectacular transformation: the bathroom

Lisa Pope, AKBD, Partners 4, Design

This master bathroom was in need of a new lease of life, and the owner knew it. It didn’t have the desired spa feel, the floor plan was rambling, storage was slim, and sight lines were less than ideal. While the client wanted a look and feel consistent with their Craftsman-style home, updates were definitely in order. First, the floor plan was reworked to make room for a double sinks, toilet and freestanding tub, and a heated floor and steam shower were installed for a touch of luxury. The feeling of cleanliness and airiness of the space is only enhanced by its minimal hardware, sleek cabinetry and selection of stone tiles.
