This Dutch Colonial in the historic Kansas City neighborhood of Brookside was torn down to the studs for a complete renovation.
To maximize the inefficiency of the original kitchen and dining layout, we removed the wall between the two rooms to open up the function space. We added multiple spacious windows to allow natural light to pour in from all directions.
Clean, crisp lines blend together with original trim, transitional rift sawn oak cabinets, soapstone and quartz counters, and Calcutta Gold marble to create a sleek style in the family’s new, modern kitchen and dining space. Food prep and family dinners are now interactive and adaptable with seating options at either the oversized peninsula (which doubles as extra storage) or dining table.
We reconfigured the powder and laundry room footprints for the utmost efficiency and elegance. The master suite was redesigned with both a large master closet and a refreshingly bright master bath.
The once screened-in porch is now an airy, enclosed room that’s ideal for at-home learning, an office, or cozying up in a sunny corner with a good book. We increased storage and functionality in the living room to accommodate large family gatherings in front of the fire.
We infused a soft and feminine palette with the muted colors of an already existing collection of well-curated artwork for a cohesive and welcoming impression for family and friends.
