Makeover magic 2017
A collection of before and after shots that show off gorgeous makeovers and dramatic remodels
The island is topped with beautiful Sienna Bordeaux granite, while the perimeter countertops feature leathered Black Pearl granite, which complements the cream subway tile backsplash.
The appliances were rearranged and new white cabinetry and additional lighting make for a much brighter kitchen.
The perimeter cabinets feature Shiloh Cabinetry’s Richmond beaded inset doors in Knotty Alder with a Caramel finish and Van Dyke glaze. The island is maple in an Olde World finish with Durango Green paint.
The main work space of the kitchen was flipped to an opposite wall so that the back wall of the home could be opened up to add light and a view. The double-door cabinet between the mud room openings is the salvaged piece that the homeowners wanted worked into the new kitchen’s design.
The desk wall and a closet between the kitchen and the dining room were removed to open up the floor plan and make room for a relocated desk space and butler’s pantry. A column housing double ovens and a television, extends beyond the original kitchen’s footprint.
A peninsula and cooking island were replaced with two smaller islands for a more streamlined effect.
The wide doorway to the family room was moved to the left to make room for the new desk area and to center the view of the stone fireplace from the kitchen. Thick two-and-a-half inch edges make the countertops feel substantial.
Two built-in bookcases were removed and replaced with arched passageways to allow a much better flow between the kitchen and dining room.
These homeowners selected white custom cabinetry from Hollow Creek Kitchens to top off their newly remodeled kitchen.
A formal dining room and great room flank the oversized galley kitchen, offering one large, flowing space that is perfect for entertaining.
Luxury vinyl tile planks, from Mannington’s Adura Max collection, were used throughout the living space. Mimicking the look of hardwood, the flooring is water and scratch resistant.
The basic footprint of the space is the same, with the exception of one wall and a pantry being moved to make a wet bar/pass through to the dining room.
The kitchen was relocated to the back of the house and includes white Merillat cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
A zero-entry shower space includes an area with a hydraulic seat for her, along with a nearby platform positioned so that she can rest her arm. There’s also an area for him to stand and shower.
The fireplace serves as the focal point in the living room and includes built-in shelving and cabinetry.
A shower was relocated and closets were moved to the opposite side of the room to make way for a more easily maneuverable vanity and toilet space.
This hallway runs from the kitchen to the living room. Diners used to have to walk into this space from the kitchen, turn right at the butler’s pantry, then another right to the dining room.
The homeowner selected the light fixture over the kitchen island because it adds a little bling to the space.
Multiple textures play a role in the room as seen in the cabinetry, tile, countertops, sinks and appliances.
This outdoor space now is completely functional and quite versatile, with features like a cushioned sitting area, an outdoor kitchen and a pool.
The carpenter used pieces of reclaimed lumber leftover from the flooring to build this custom pub table. It is wrapped with the same copper that was used for the room’s countertops.
