A Living Room

By e.l.

Each day in this house begins and often ends in the kitchen. This is where friends and family gather for meals, homework and conversation.

There was no part of this kitchen that wasn’t doing its job well. Rooms do get tired and it was time for some rejuvenation. A P4D renovation added efficient and energetic elements to this hard working room home. Traditional white cabinets bring energy to the light filled room warmed by wood floors and colorful rugs. The challenge was to create depth and texture with a white palate. Old counter tops were replaced with white quartz. An arabesque marble pattern used for the back splash adds dimension. A custom crisp white Corian three-bowl sink and new white appliances were also added. For the sake of a tidy kitchen, pocket doors were installed to hide and hold a coffee station with extra storage. 

While the footprint was not expanded a kitchen desk was reconfigured to add a wine refrigerator and beverage station and retain counter space for a desktop computer.

Another adjustment moves the focus of the room to a new fireplace in the kitchen with a television above it. Now, the fireplace is visible in the living room and kitchen. The change serves as the focal point of the room and warms even more, this bright white renovation. (Photos/Gilbertson Photography)
