Makeover magic

Before and after shots show off stunning makeovers and remodeling projects

Multiple layers of ceiling were removed during this kitchen remodel, but the original ceiling joists were left intact as exposed collar ties.

This roughly 5x6-foot kitchen island is topped with Blackwood Cambria quartz and features a Vinotemp wine refrigerator. The nearby bar area includes a floating shelf backed with LED lighting and a backsplash made of mosaic tile featuring green marble, black glass and stainless steel.

A strategically placed window connects the indoors and out. The window—residing in the place that a backsplash would oft take—allows a generous amount of natural light to filter in to this kitchen.

Seating in this kitchen was switched from the opposite side of the island to now face the beautiful wooded view out the back window.

Glass-front white cabinetry contrasts with the stained birch cabinets used throughout the rest of this kitchen.

A custom designed Keurig caddy is tucked behind the glass doors on the blue hutch, which serves as a coffee bar.

A river sink cuts through the island. The homeowner says it’s perfect for filling with ice and storing beverages or food during a party.

This range backsplash is made of a combination of porcelain tile separated by pieces of Schluter strip in an effort to bring out the stainless steel found throughout the kitchen.

This outdoor pavilion features a plethora of natural materials including Turkish travertine, Brazilian Ipe and pine.

A wood countertop and reclaimed hardwood flooring help to establish the farmhouse-inspired design in the remodeled kitchen.

This kitchen backsplash is made of Arabescato Carrara marble laid in a herringbone pattern that brings attention to the perimeter wall and range area.

This quarter sawn oak cabinetry features a dark Graphite stain and vertical lift doors on the wall cabinets.

The look of this new kitchen design was thoughtfully tied to the original 50s architecture of the home. The range now stands where the sink used to be.

The refrigerator didn’t move during this kitchen remodel, but the surrounding cabinets, crown molding and soffit were custom designed and built to create a clean, uninterrupted line from floor to ceiling.

Grandview 6x12-inch pavers from R.I. Lampus were laid in a herringbone pattern and then bordered with 4x6-inch Anthracite Stratford pavers, creating a rug-inspired effect on the floor of this new pool house.

This eating area’s rear wall and ceiling were covered in shiplap panels for a more contemporary feel.

The maple perimeter cabinetry and paneled backsplash feature a Nutmeg Shadow glaze, which gives the wood texture and character.

Windows and a door leading to an outdoor patio allow for an abundance of natural light to flow into this finished basement.

Space gained during this remodel from the rarely used, closed-off dining room allows for an eating peninsula and a handsome banquette that is flanked with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.

A beverage cooler, frosted glass-front upper cabinets, and an espresso stain allow the bar area to stand out from the nearby kitchen.

Shiplap, a rough-sawn pine paneling, was used to build the custom sliding barn doors that create visual interest and block off the home theatre during movie night.

The daughter’s basement bedroom walls are painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Rapture Blue and Grecian Ivory.

This fireplace surround is comprised of Copper Ledgestone from Natural Stone Veneers International, Inc.

The large tree in the courtyard was preserved during this remodel and is now accented by landscape lighting and a large paver patio.

These homeowners opted to replace the original concrete slab patio with travertine pavers to accentuate the contemporary design of the outdoor space.

Rather than including a designated home theatre, the homeowners incorporated the TV viewing room into the main entertaining area.

This foosball table is one of several entertainment options located in the game room that's located in the basement of this home.

This home theatre encourages the family to relax and enjoy a movie thanks to walls featuring Sherwin-Williams’ Smoky Blue paint, an oversized tan sectional sofa, and a camel colored leather ottoman.
