Commonwealth Home Design remodeled the kitchen and master bathroom of a $1.6M Great Falls, VA home built in 1994. The end result is an eye-popping aesthetic feast!
The kitchen and master bathroom have been reconfigured and completely remodeled with all new cabinetry, fixtures and finishes as well as overall functional and aesthetic upgrades.
The kitchen redesign includes:
- Significant reconfiguration of the existing space, which allows the kitchen to look and function as a much larger space, in keeping with the large size of the house. The changes include:
- Relocating the door from the garage, which now enters into a mudroom adjacent to the new kitchen.
- Straightening the back stair that leads from the kitchen to the second floor, to improve functionality for traffic flow and island configuration.
- Relocating the pantry.
- Replacing an awkwardly designed triangular island with a large new rectangular island, improving the work triangle and the island seating.
- Cabinets and shelves:
- Ultracraft Breckenridge Wide, Maple painted Arctic White; island painted Platinum Grey.
- Cabinets and trim extended to the ceiling. Backlit glass-front transom cabinets for display.
- 3” thick floating shelves.
- New Counter Top
- New Backsplash
- Extending tile to the ceiling behind the stove to create a visually-appealing focal point in the kitchen.
- New recessed lighting and pendant globe above island.
- Built-in Appliances:
- Blue Star 48” Platinum Series Professional Grade Range
- Zephyr Act PowerWave Stainless Steel Ventilation Hood
- Sub-Zero 48” Classic Side-by-Side Refrigerator/Freezer
- Sharp Microwave Drawer
- Bosch Pocket Handle Dishwasher
- Zephyr Dual Zone Wine Cooler / Beverage Cooler
- Kohler Strive under-mount sink with squared double-equal bowls, divider dish, divider utility shelf, and bottom bowl rack. With SilentShield sound-absorption system.
- Kohler Simplice Pull-Down Faucet
- Replacing a tile floor with oak hardwood floors to match other areas of the home.
The bathroom reconfiguration and remodel achieves a spa-like space, and includes:
- Flipping the location of the oversized toilet room and undersized shower.
- Creating a sumptuous 2-person shower.
- Unique champagne bronze fixtures, both a rain shower and regular shower head, a handheld shower head, and a custom nook with herringbone tile and glass shelves.
- Creating a long, custom vanity as a focal point by joining two purchased vanities with a custom makeup counter.
- Tall, minimalist mirrors draw the eye upward, accentuating the height of the room.
- Eliminating the dated tub-in-tile-surround, in favor of a free-standing pedestal tub.
- Replacing dense black tile with light, bright tile throughout.
- Reconfiguring the entry from the sitting room, for more privacy and sense of scale.
