This Old Mission Peninsula home, built in the early 90’s, was in need of an update- both to style and the flow of the space. To accomplish this improvement, the original closed floor plan was opened up; creating a home that allows easier movement between spaces. The kitchen was completely redesigned with off-white with pewter glaze cabinets flanking the perimeter, new slate GE appliances, polished granite counter-tops and two cherry espresso islands. The smaller island, perfect for prep work, works well with the nearby larger island that is an ideal space for guests to gather.
White trim was integrated to update the oak doorways and the floors were re-finished with a modern stain color. A neutral paint pallet was chosen, but the sun room offers a cheerful splash of color. The original fireplace mantel was transformed to a beautiful 10 foot tall white ship lap overmantel surrounding the existing multicolored brick. A new barn door was installed to brighten the mudroom/laundry room that features custom storage cubbies. These practical design improvements transformed a closed floor plan into a bright, open layout perfect for a young family.
