When we received these pictures from Spaces Designed we all stopped work and passed them around Modenus Towers. We’ve got more really great before and after pics of this project so keep reading!
Spaces Designed transformed a fifteen year-old traditional tract home into a sleek and modern retreat. The project exemplifies the age-old design adage “less is more”.
The 3,500 square foot renovation included a complete overhaul of the out-dated kitchen and bathrooms with the continuation of the fresh modern design aesthetic desired by the client into the other areas of the home. This was achieved by incorporating a sleek grey monochromatic color scheme with simple clean-lined furniture and accessories throughout. A mix of maple wood flooring and plush neutral carpet throughout the house also helps to unify the separate spaces.
European style white lacquer cabinets in the kitchen epitomize classic modern design. Glass front upper cabinet doors add an element of interest while allowing the client to show off decorative glassware and china. A white quartz counter continues the stark white scheme but flecks of iridescent glass within the surface combined with a unique silver tile backsplash add an unexpected element of drama.
With the living area essentially being part of the kitchen, Spaces Designed were presented with the challenge of creating an interesting fireplace design that would relate back to the kitchen but that would also be captivating enough on its own. Rectangular carrara marble tile placed in an interesting pattern was chosen for the face of the fireplace with a charcoal gray tile for the hearth to pick up on the dark veins of the marble. A dark charcoal gray paint was chosen for the fireplace wall as well for maximum visual impact.
The home’s three bathrooms were designed in the same vain as the kitchen, with the goal of keeping the aesthetic sleek and modern. Commendable attention to detail ensured that the layout and features of each bathroom met the family’s needs. Large back lit mirrors add an element of interest while highlighting the tile walls.
Spaces Designed have managed to take a “typical” tract home and turn into something that is anything but. Please read on for more before and after picture on this project.
In the bathroom, suspended vanity cabinets and a brave effort to open the space in the corner that used to be the, typical, home for the , typical corner tub both provide a sense of added space and light
We just won’t even comment on the train wreck that was the ‘before’ kitchen and instead move right on the stunning ‘after’ in cool shades of white, silver and sage. What a breath of fresh design air and how bold to once again challenge the ‘expected’ layout by seamlessly carrying the kitchen cabinetry and counter tops into the dining area.
