This goal of this project was to update an existing home for a couple in need of a space that was not only more modern but would also accommodate their extended family during the holidays. The couple requested the design of a 460 square foot All-Season addition that would accomplish three things: 1.) Provide additional entertaining space, 2.)  Merge into the interior of their home, 3.) Seamlessly blend into the existing exterior architecture.

In order to integrate the addition and the interior together, the existing kitchen/wet bar, living room, dining room, foyer, and master bathroom were all designated for renovation.

To make a big impact upon entry of the home, the Foyer received updated lighting, the stairs were refinished, and a waterfall carpet runner was installed down the stairs.  The adjacent Dining Room also received updated lighting & new flooring.

Modern renovations in the Kitchen included new flooring, cabinetry, countertop, high-end appliances, lighting, a new skylight, and plumbing fixtures.  The Living Area, which opens out to the All-Season space, received new flooring, lighting, fireplace facade, and storage niches for the home’s sound system. The All-Season space features hardwood flooring, a breakfast nook in the new bay window, both ceiling and wall-mounted lighting, and three sliding doors for easy access to the outdoors and for fresh air to circulate within the home.  The Master Bathroom received a major upgrade by receiving new flooring, wall tile, cabinets, countertop, plumbing fixtures, and lighting.  New interior doors, trim work, and paint throughout helped to tie the first floor into a cohesive style.

Because the homeowner’s desire was to host their extended family, furniture design was a key aspect to this project.  Furniture was specified in the Kitchen, Living Room, All-Season Room, and the Dining Room to be not only beautiful but functional and inviting.  Featured is a custom designed 8-foot sofa table with lightweight ottomans underneath that can be brought out for additional seating.  The dining table also has a self-storing leaf to accommodate up to 10 people.  Custom window treatments were included in the Kitchen, Living Room, and Dining Room for added privacy.
