Client Remodeling Goals
Our clients asked for a renovation to their Ann Arbor home. They wanted to enlarge a small, kitchen and open the space into the living area. The goal was to create an open concept floor plan that improved the flow, and made entertaining easier. They chose a contemporary, modern look that matched their lifestyle. Functionality was improved with an addition that now contains a mudroom and laundry room as well as a full bathroom.
Our Design Solutions
Our first task was to eliminate a section of a structural wall between the kitchen and living room. This allowed us to elongate the kitchen. A kitchen island island was centralized between the living room and the dining space was relocated. Additional windows were added and existing windows enlarged, to fill the kitchen natural light. High-end materials were used to bring warmth and elegance to the space. These can be seen in the custom walnut wrapped pantry corner, and a reclaimed walnut island front, which is framed by a quartz waterfall-edge counter.
All of the interior finishes were updated for a cohesive contemporary look.
