1990s Georgian Remodel
The existing footprint couldn't be changed,
so we looked upward.
Keeping the same footprint, the room expanded visually by blowing out the ceiling and adding a large, arched window. Most of the existing cabinetry remained. Jones Cabinetry of Murfreesboro, TN, built glass-fronted cabinets to flank the range hood, along with pull-out spice drawers, and a baking counter. Trim was added, and the cabinets were painted a neutral off white. The island was extended to include an eating area and a prep sink.
To open the space at the other end of the kitchen, the old wall ovens were removed,
along with part of a wall.
A baking center was added.
A dark, dated foyer gets a bright update.
Updating a 90s Staircase
Updating a Fireplace Mantel
A narrow facade was replaced with a
more substantial mantel. The bricks above and beside the fireplace were covered with drywall (according to local building codes); trim was added to the brick hearth; carrara marble covered the outer aspect of the firebox and on the brick hearth.
Painted bricks, a new portico, double doors,
and Timberlane shutters.
Unfitted vanity, granite remnant, new lighting, paint.
