Overview

For this project the homeowner’s wanted a larger, more open kitchen, living and dining room.  Without the need for a separate formal dining room and a want for an eat-in kitchen feel,  an evaluation of their existing main floor was needed in order to create the open design this family wanted.  

The design process started with some inspirational images conveying natural light and warm wooden accents, and major details like bay windows and separate serving areas.  In order to truly create an open floorplan, walls were ultimately going to have to come down.  This modern family didn’t feel the need for a separate formal dining room and wanted a more functional eat-in area that would also contribute to an entertainment space, as well as serve as a space for both formal and in-formal gatherings.  The current dining room offered a nice large picture window that became the focal window above the sink, creating the bay window the homeowner’s wanted.  In order to add a triple skylight with a large, light filled well above the island, we had to restructure the existing roof framing.  In opening the basement access to both the new kitchen space and the back family room, one large open room was created with a nice sight line from front to back of the home.   The white cabinets accented with the natural walnut island countertop and oiled wood flooring makes this large space feel not only warm and inviting, but livable for a growing family.   The classic white subway tile gives the timeless appeal that balances naturally with the warm wood accents and natural lighting.

“Meyer Bros recently completed a full home renovation for me and did a beautiful job! They started with an older home with a constrictive floor plan and found creative solutions to make it open and updated. They were prompt, professional, and communicated with me every step of the way. I could not be happier with my new home!”
