This traditional, colonial style, 1980’s home got quite the facelift from the inside out. With a little imagination, it was completely transformed. The main living areas in this home were closed off to each other and although the renovation plans didn’t increase the footprint - it feels so much bigger now! Walls were taken out and the stairs were opened up making each room feel more spacious. The kitchen is so much more functional now and with the walls gone a huge island was added. The counter space almost doubled with the new layout and the quartz countertops we selected have a suede finish and they feel like butter! 


We finished off the open concept floor plan with new wood floors throughout, craftsman style trim, and custom stair railings. For the floors we selected engineered European white oak engineered hardwood flooring. The wide plank and textured surface gives it an imperfect yet updated look that is just dreamy. Plus, a lighter floor doesn't show dirt the way dark floors do. Win-win! With the new aesthetic the custom iron stair railings were installed and all that was left were the finishing touches. We added some recessed can lights, painted the ceiling and changed the trim from the traditional to a more craftsman style. The end result is airy, open, and modern with a timeless feel. We absolutely love how it turned out!


The exterior got a major houselift too, before we got a hold of it, it was a traditional red brick home with colonial style trim around the front door. We removed the colonial front door trim and replaced it with a more craftsman style door trim and lighting, just enough to make it work with the rest of the style of the home. Then painted the brick a soft white with slightly contrasting trim to give the home dimension.
