When our clients purchased this dated 1950’s home in Northville, it was a true fixer-upper in desperate need of a complete remodel. They wanted to update the look of the home and add functionality to the space, which included relocating the kitchen and opening up the entire floor plan on one half of the house. In order to achieve the updated, open concept our clients sought, we removed several walls between the kitchen and adjoining living spaces. We removed the existing windows from what was previously the eat-in area of the kitchen and installed a large sliding door wall to allow for extra natural light.
New windows were also installed to the left and right of the range hood, as well as above the sink and dining area. Ivory-painted Woodland Cabinetry assists in setting the new tone of the renovated rooms, using a traditional design theme to create a modern, functional space. A sable-stained island provides a central prep-and-serve area, as well as serving as an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the ivory cabinets. Quartz counter tops with a limestone backsplash add further contrast and detail. A stainless steel custom hood above the range, as well as bold pendant lights above the island, blend a touch of modern with the traditional theme of the room. Found space from an existing coat closet was reworked to serve as a dry bar adjacent to the kitchen.
Additionally, all existing wood paneling was removed from the adjoining living space and a new fireplace mantel and TV alcove were installed. This fixer-upper is now ready for a new generation of style, form and function and our clients couldn’t be happier with the results.
