Pandemic life has a lot of people thinking ‘wow, my house really needs a refresh’. After spending countless hours at home, things people have overlooked for many years are now staring them in the face – literally.
The most common spaces I have been contracted to work on in the past twelve months are kitchens, master bedrooms and bathrooms; in that order and it’s no wonder why. Busy families who were often eating out on the fly, are now dining in, parents who used to spend eight to ten hours a day away from their children are now with them – sometimes 24/7 and bathrooms are functioning double time with all day use.
The Kimball Creek Village project is a three level townhome constructed in 2015 located in suburban Seattle, WA. This home sits well appointed at 1,930 square feet and includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and stunning views of the Cascade mountains.
The Eagles Nest Kitchen is one of my favorite projects where a kitchen transformation was possible without completely gutting the space. My clients purchased the home from the original owners, whose style was opposite their own. The entire home was dark and felt like a cave. The ceilings and walls had been painted a mocha brown color which made the space feel small and untidy.
The objective was to brighten the space, while also maintaining a sense of warmth and coziness. This was accomplished through changing the backsplash to a textured white subway tile and swapping the brown granite counters for stunning bright quartz with bold veining. They also added an instant hot water tap to the sink, upgraded the faucet and added matching quartz apron to the window sill to elevate the look. Lastly changing out the recessed light rings and upgrading from an electric stove to a gas range took this kitchen from blah to beautiful!
