Kitchen Renovation with Open Hearth Room
Family Room Designed for Entertaining
This project was designed for a busy family who loves to entertain and needed a warm and inviting space to host guests. We redesigned this wing of the house to be a functional family room, kitchen, and striking fireplace. Recessed lighting was added to the entire space, and the stone fireplace serves as a focal point for both the kitchen and family room. Some of the materials in this home remodel, such as the glass backsplash, oak floors in the kitchen, and fireplace box were re-purposed. Grand Homes encourages recycling materials as needed for cost savings on every project. Sarah Kirk with Accents Interiors worked closely with Grand Homes to achieve a new and fresh look that would also be functional for every member of the home.
This fireplace has been re-purposed with a stone surround that makes it a beautiful focal point in this redesigned space for entertaining and cooking. The family room side of the fireplace has a niche for the TV and a hearth. The kitchen side of the fireplace serves as a cozy place to sit and read the morning newspaper. The natural stone was hand selected to create this center masterpiece.
Kitchen Remodel with Open Hearth Room
This formerly standard-looking kitchen with short white cabinets is now filled with tall cherry kitchen cabinets and granite countertops. Tearing down a hard-to-organize built-in pantry allowed room for a double oven, built-in microwave, and cook top while still leaving room for a smaller pantry with roll-out trays. In place of a table, the expanded peninsula seats six and also functions as a workstation. Across from the peninsula is a new built-in TV that is centrally located for convenient viewing. Replacing a former desk is a bar for entertaining. An unattractive fluorescent light box was removed from the ceiling to make way for 25 recessed lights placed throughout the kitchen and family room.
