Waxhaw Kitchen & Primary Bath Redesign
Their extensive wish list included a reimagined floor plan in both spaces, the elimination of a large tub deck in the bathroom, and an awkward L-shaped island in the kitchen, intentional storage solutions with designated areas for specific appliances or tasks, professional-grade cooking appliances, and elegant details throughout with luxurious, classic finishes and contrasting materials for interest.
Spaces Included:Bathrooms, Kitchens, Other Spaces
Project Scope:Custom Redesign
After a lengthy collaborative process with our design team, their new kitchen and primary bathroom are more functional for their needs and full of unique, one-of-a-kind details. The bathroom now sports a much larger shower with porcelain slab walls to eliminate grout, a larger two-person walk-in closet, a separate make-up vanity for her, and a custom tile floor design. The kitchen traffic pattern has been improved with the help of a large, linear island facing the morning room. Coffered ceilings, crystal chandeliers, a walnut butcher block and weathered brick paired with a contrasting color palette and brass hardware elevate the space to welcome family and friends.
An easily accessible, morning station with integrated pock-doors was built into the right side of the range wall to hide coffee, tea and a small microwave. Interior LED strips illuminate the space on dark mornings.
Morning Room Facelift
Open to the kitchen and breakfast areas, the morning room could not be overlooked as part of this great room redesign. A two-story stone fireplace with raised hearth and cherry built-ins beneath a vaulted ceiling left the room feeling dark and dated. Our clients desired a classic, updated design and a softer color palette, so their commissioned painting by local artist Laura Park could act as the focal point.
Two-story shadowbox molding on the fireplace perfectly frames their new wall sconces and artwork, while the cast stone fireplace surround offers a clean and classic, yet modern frame for the larger firebox. A marble hearth pulls everything together and adds a touch of formality.
The built-ins were replaced with a simplified design and fewer shelves to eliminate clutter. The dark paint color helps them to recede into the wall and offers a dramatic contrast to the lighter colors in the room. The vaulted ceiling was covered in wood paneling to add subtle texture and interest without competing with the other elements in the space.
