Relocating for work and leaving behind a home that had just been remodeled is never easy. Especially when your new home also requires an extensive remodel. Fortunately, our Hollow Drive Project residents were up for the task of transforming an outdated kitchen and bathroom. Though the floorplan in both areas didn’t change much, the impact in design choices transformed both rooms into open, bright spaces that are warm and inviting. Can a bathroom be inviting? We think so.
In the kitchen, the old cherry cabinets and yellow wallpaper were replaced with fresh, creamy white cabinetry and serene blue-grey walls, complimented by new hardwood floors and gleaming quartzite counters. The built-in Jenn-Air refrigerator serves as the anchor to the back wall, accompanied by the built-in wall ovens and microwave drawer. A Jenn-Air induction cooktop is surrounded by spice pull-outs and pot and pan drawers, set off by the Settecento New Yorker tile backsplash. On the peninsula, a beautiful Waterstone faucet and Rohl sink make prep and clean up a breeze. A cozy window seat, accented by the Circa Lighting scones, was created between additional cabinetry housing a bar area and baking center, providing the perfect area to curl up after a good meal with family and friends.
The bathroom received shiplap walls, calming grey cabinetry, and wood-look tile flooring. Our builder created recessed medicine cabinets to match perfectly, and even provided some additional storage behind a “hidden” shiplap door. The bump-out dormer window was the perfect place to add a pretty dresser-style drawer base, inviting you into the space.
