Space For Family

The owners of this home were empty nesters but found with their growing family, (nine grandkids and counting) they needed more space to enjoy their family. The design challenge of this renovation was to open up the whole main floor to create living
space for a multi generation family while maintaining the casual, elegant style of the home owners.
By removing the wall between the dining room and kitchen and removing the walls that
separated the small kitchen from the rest of the home we were able to extend the kitchen and create more living space. The dining room table moved into the new formal eat in kitchen at the back of the house to capture the view of the ravine in the back yard.
Our clients did not want to compromise on finishes and details to suit the young grandchildren. By using custom solid wood cabinets with traditional raised panels and solid wood architectural turnings and carvings we delivered quality surfaces that could handle multi-generational active living. The perimeter cabinets, finished in milk white lacquer, are contrasted by the solid stained cherry island with subtle distressing complementing the antiqued cherry hardwood floor.
The finishing touch, adding to the character of the home, are the large antique mercury glass oversized pendants above the island. Together with the ambient lighting seen inside the leaded glass door cabinets and pot lights for effective general lighting they contribute to balance and flexibility of lighting control.
