Before and After: Open living space





Irving Development
Whole House Remodel

A 1900-foot addition and whole house remodel completely transformed this 1980’s colonial style home. The homeowners worked with Irving’s design team to achieve their desire to open up the kitchen/ living area, add more bedrooms, and create a designated pantry/laundry/mud room.

A beautiful transformation of the family living area highlights this remodel. Large open spans were achieved using numerous steel beams, creating a fantastic living and entertaining area.  The kitchen, entertainment room, formal dining room, wet bar and small office are all incorporated into this area. Custom cabinetry, using a combination of paint and stain, were used in the kitchen and the entire living area.  Oak flooring with a walnut stain runs throughout the lower level adding a rich contrast. Granite counter tops, tile backsplash and commercial grade appliances were used in the kitchen. A natural stone fireplace enhances the large living area. Ten-foot knotty alder sliding doors lead from this area to the outdoor entertainment patio added to the newly landscaped back yard.

The stairs leading to the second level were reconfigured to increase the size of the foyer and a new library and office, with numerous built-ins, are on each side of the entry. A custom metal handrail leads up the stairs to the second floor. The second level now has four bedrooms, three baths, a study loft and an entertainment room with full bar, pool and card tables.
