This project was done over two phases to ensure for a stress-less remodel for this Issaquah based family. During the initial phase of this client’s project our designer discussed the options of refacing the current cabinets versus doing all new cabinets. Our designer knew that the current cabinets were in excellent condition and the basic overall footprint of the kitchen functioned for this family. This homeowner had done a lot of research prior to our first meeting and she knew the look that she wanted. It was very beneficial for our designer to see all the inspiration photos this client has saved because she was able to suggest materials that fit within this clients design style. During the clients pre-investigation process she had already selected the professional style appliances that she wanted to incorporate into this project. This was especially helpful because our designer was able to slightly modify the footprint and change from a cooktop to a slide in range. The area under the range did not have flooring, but the client had a prefinished floor existing, so we found a pretty good match and added it under the range. In the shadow, you don’t even know that it is a slightly different shade. This saved the client thousands. This client wanted the clean lines of the bright white shaker cabinets for their kitchen. They contrasted this with a darker quartz countertop because they liked the look of soapstone. Due to durability and maintenance they ended up selecting the quartz material instead. We included a custom hood detail to complement the clean line shaker look of the cabinets and we flanked the hood with glass cabinets to ensure the kitchen didn’t feel too heavy due to the size of the custom hood. The kitchen project was then finished off with the bright white subway tile backsplash that has a nice subtle texture to it and some upgraded lighting making this a kitchen for the whole family to enjoy.
In the second phase of this project the homeowners decided to focus on the master bathroom. Again, they had done a tone of research prior to the initial design appointment and had many inspiration photos. They really like the wood look for the flooring in the master so our designer had suggested a luxury vinyl plank for durability around the water. The client found a color that they loved and moved forward with that material. A very important design element for this client was the beautiful free standing tub and tub fill that is incorporated in this spa like master bathroom. The bright white from the tub and the kitchen backsplash was carried through to this large glass enclosed shower with the added bench. To keep the theme of the remodel throughout the house, they chose a large scale subway style tile for the shower surround keeping it light and bright. This client loved the idea of the rain shower head but also included a hand held shower head which makes keeping this shower cleaned a breeze. The shower bench is also topped with the same quartz material that was added to the existing vanity. A tower cabinet was added to the existing vanity it to give these homeowners extra storage and a place to keep plugged in items out of sight. Some other important details added to this master bathroom were a heated towel warmer, such a luxury on the grey Seattle days and wainscoting throughout this bathroom. Finishing off the second phase of this remodel project was the update to the powder room. We updated the countertops and added the wainscoting around the walls like in the master bathroom giving this house a beautiful cohesiveness. Our designer loved working with these homeowners on their remodel project.
