Here is an inside look at a whole home remodel project that totally transformed this San Clemente house into a home suitable for family, friends and more!
The dynamic pairing of white painted perimeter cabinets with wood stained “Smokey Hills” island sets a sophisticated design baseline. Durable enough to withstand the countless family gatherings and dinner parties ahead. Leathered, Super White Quartzite countertops tie the two-toned kitchen cabinetry together perfectly.
Our clients specifically requested cabinetry to store the family’s Kitchen Aid mixer and cookware. They also wanted custom cabinet inserts to house the children’s snacks and organize the notorious “junk drawer”. These features serve to keep things beautiful behind the scenes. Integrating a full-size wine refrigerator into the cabinet plan was at the top of our client’s remodeling list. Wanting to add a playful element, a neutral arabesque shaped backsplash rounds out the space.
“Thoughtful design solutions, purposefully incorporated to reflect a homeowner’s lifestyle is what takes a remodel from good to great.” Carolyn Hall, Design Consultant
Family Friendly Floor Plan
With a baby on the way and a love for entertaining, this San Clemente couple dreamt of a sophisticated yet comforting family-friendly space. Focusing first on the main living spaces, our clients opted to relocate the staircase that once separated the kitchen from the family room, creating a free-flowing floor plan. Second to the structural staircase relocation, widening the doorway between the family room and formal dining room furthers the open air feeling throughout the first floor. As the focal point of the room, this home’s original mantle and newly design built-in storage adds character, visual interest and texture to the fireplace facade.
The master bathroom remodeling plan was developed to include a large double vanity, gorgeous freestanding tub, and luxury, spa-like shower. With limited secondary storage, optimizing the bathroom vanity was critical. Determined to offer the next level storage solutions, every drawer and cabinet was designed for a specific purpose. Outfitted with custom cosmetic organizers, electrical outlets and styling station inserts, everything has its place within this stunning master bathroom.
