Renovation Project with Before & After Images

Renovation Project with Before & After Photo’s

The project in the images below was a pretty major renovation/addition to a home. The client added onto the side of the house expanding the kitchen & living room areas in order to incorporate a garage below. The before and after shots are fantastic and show a dramatic change in the two major living spaces. The kitchen and living room were once separated by a wall and you had to walk around the stairs and through the foyer to get from one space to the next. Once that wall came down and the two spaces became one, it became an entertainers dream! Family functions and gatherings would be much more inclusive and the flow of the home works so much better now that the living spaces are on a more open plan.



You can see major change in 1B these two photos. In the before photo, you can see the wall on the right that divided the living room and the kitchen which was completely removed. The far wall with the three windows was pushed out over the driveway to allow for more interior space. To give a good idea of placement, the new slider doors are positioned where the old sink used to be.




2A 2BThese two photos are taken from almost the same spot before & after the renovation. The stair location did not change; it was just opened up and highlighted in the new design. Again, a couple of walls were taken down which opened up the space incredibly. The cabinets with the wood top are the perfect location to take on some overflow from the kitchen. They provide an ideal location for a food serving area during a party or for a bar area where mixing drinks can be done outside of the busy kitchen. Adding a second trash and an under counter refrigerator assures that you will have everything that you need at a close proximity.

This angle shows the new flow for the kitchen versus the old flow. The original kitchen was sort of a dead end with only one interior doorway in. By removing the wall that was shared by living room the entire space becomes much more organic.

This last angle here is a shot of the original living room, and then showing how open it is now that the wall has been removed. The clients chose to have the fireplace squared off and it brings the two areas together, yet still defines the living room as its own space.

Timeless design: white kitchen cabinets for the win

White kitchen cabinets are stealing the show as the top requested color in recent years. They’re bright, fresh, and coordinate beautifully with any decor. The classic look and universal appeal of white painted cabinets make them increasingly popular, but most importantly, they withstand the test of time.

Often times it’s easy to date a natural wood kitchen, even if it’s only a few years old. No matter how beautiful or well-crafted, stains and wood styles come and go quickly. But quality kitchen designs with white cabinets can be ageless—decor notwithstanding.

Below are photos of a project we completed in Sudbury, MA in 2016.

Compare this with a kitchen design a decade earlier in Brookline, MA.

White is the ultimate neutral color. Accents like light fixtures, hardware, and decor can really shine against a white kitchen. White cabinets also allow flexibility to rotate styles easily as trends and styles change without the need for an entire remodel. Just replace a few fixtures and accents, swap out some decor, and it’s like an overhaul without the price tag.

So if you’re looking to brighten up your space, or want to make your remodel last for years to come, consider white cabinets—you won’t regret it.
