Piper Glen Home Remodel

Piper Glen Home Remodel

As an interior designer, our client deeply understood the importance of a well-designed home. Having recently purchased it, she and her husband wanted to take the time to redesign and remodel it to suit the aesthetic and functional needs of their family before moving in. They enlisted our help in redesigning the kitchen, sitting room, and primary bathroom, as well as tackling significant structural issues, refinishing all the hardwood flooring, repainting, and updating the stairs and exterior stucco.

For this Piper Glen home remodel, we started in the public spaces which included the redesign of the kitchen and sitting room and the addition of a bar off the breakfast nook. For the size of the home, the original kitchen was small. There wasn’t much storage, the appliances were too close together without functional landing zones, and it wreaked of the early 2000s with arched door cherry cabinets, and brown granite countertops.

Spaces Included:

Kitchen, Bathroom, Other Spaces

Project Scope:

Custom Redesign


To create a more contemporary design we married formal, traditional materials like the cast stone hood and marble backsplash with casual, modern finishes such as the quarter sawn white oak cabinets found on the kitchen island and bar. Reconfiguring the placement of the range, sink and microwave drawer, created a more functional work triangle, while the long, rectangular kitchen island introduced additional storage, prep and seating space they were previously lacking.

In the main suite, we took an awkwardly designed bathroom with two water closets (each with its own sink) and an oversized jetted corner bathtub and turned it into a relaxing, luxurious marble bathroom retreat. The new design features a centered, freestanding bathtub in front of a wall of antique mirror for a dramatic focal point; a standalone double vanity that mimics an old furniture piece, and a walk-in marble shower with no glass to maintain (score!).

While construction began right at the beginning of the pandemic, this family toughed it out patiently as we all balanced the challenges of an uncertain future with the need to keep moving forward. Now they’re settled into their Piper Glen estate, and able to enjoy their new, stylish home comfortably. The combination of formal and sensible finishes paired with proper space planning prove the attainability of approachable luxury in Charlotte, NC.

The brushed brass freestanding tub filler hides behind the tub and blends in with the antique finish on the mirror wall to eliminate distractions.
The long, rectangular kitchen island provides mulitple prep and clean-up spaces, as well as casual seating for four – a significant improvement over the previous design.
Keeping herbs and spices away from heat is critical to maintain their freshness and nutritional benefits. A tiered drawer at the prep space protects them while making sure they’re within reach.
Modern touches like the stainless steel apron front sink and quarter sawn white oak slab doors on the island contrast with the more traditional, black recessed panel cabinetry around the perimeter.
Black cabinets, white quartz countertops, a marble backsplash and the floating cast stone hood perfectly frame the 48” black and brass La Canche range.
This family is always ready to entertain thanks to the new wet bar taking up residence in a former void off the breakfast and living rooms.
The symmetry dual entrance shower, and antique mirrored wall behind the central freestanding bathtub distracts away from the asymmetry of the rest of this marble bathroom.

Calcutta marble as the foundation of this primary bathroom lends an air of formality which is balanced by the slightly rustic, wire brushed, quarter sawn white oak vanity cabinet and brushed bronze plumbing fixtures. This bathroom is all about balancing polished with casual and marrying form to function.

“Our remodel with ReVision was an amazing experience! The whole job went so smoothly, from the design phase to implementation, and finally completion. Our Project Manager was fantastic throughout the whole project! He listened to any issues and addressed any concerns we had throughout the process. He was a consistent presence and had a thorough knowledge of what our job entailed. He managed all the subs to get the job done in the best manner for all parties concerned. He was awesome!

Thank you, ReVision, for the wonderful home that you all brought to fruition!”

To create a subtle slope for optimal drainage as well as increase slip resistance, we used a 2 x 4” marble tile in this zero-threshold, walk-in shower. The floor change is only visible from within the shower, and the tile-in linear drain is nearly imperceptible, ensuring continuity. A clerestory window invites natural light into the shower while maintaining privacy.
A neutral, but high contrast color palette allows the various textures of this black, white and wood toned kitchen design to create a comfortable, but elegant atmosphere.

The strategically placed microwave drawer is close to the refrigerator for efficiency, but doesn’t distract from the focal point of the kitchen – the range - since it’s mostly hidden from view.
Simple, quarter sawn white oak floating shelves don’t detract from the hand blackened stainless steel wrapped modern fireplace at the center of the sitting room.

Sitting Room with a Modern Fireplace

While there wasn’t a fireplace in the sitting room originally, the previous homeowners had taken a media cabinet from this space with them when they left, leaving a blank wall. We wanted to create a comfortable sitting room for casual lounging off the kitchen, but our clients didn’t want a traditional fireplace – it had to be more modern to coordinate with the rest of the design.

After exploring multiple materials to create a modern fireplace, we landed on one-of-a-kind steel sheet metal that was blackened, lacquered, and formed by hand on site. The unique finishing process resulted in a subtle horizontal pattern, adding soft texture to the dark focal point (which helps make the TV less obvious). This movement perfectly pairs with the other textures in the room, including the quarter sawn white oak shelves which are the same material as the kitchen island and bar cabinets in the adjacent space.
