Many homeowners aim for an overall cohesiveness in the finishes of their home, and this reno was no different. To help promote this cohesiveness, all cabinetry throughout the kitchen and bathroom received the same paint style and finish for an amazing, unified look! Skelly Home partnered up with Wheelhouse Design to execute this legendary Legend Oaks project!
The entire kitchen was gutted out except for the flooring and some of the appliances. Wheelhouse Design and the homeowner wanted to incorporate the existing exposed brick wall into the renovation design. This brick adds a warmth and homey feel to the design of the kitchen. After installing a new gas stove and a vent hood, new custom-built cabinetry was installed. Under-cabinet lighting was added to give more light to the countertop workplace and to feature the beautiful herringbone pattern for the backsplash chosen by Wheelhouse Design. For the countertops, New London Grey Quartz was selected. An added bonus to this renovation was the addition of a pantry! The clients were lacking pantry space, so Wheelhouse Design decided to turn their existing, unused, bar space into a new pantry, hidden by doors. Using a new custom doorway to access a pantry adds an element of whimsy and wonder to this home and is a great tip to keep in mind for an unused wet bar area or other similar space.
A full bathroom gut was done in the master bathroom. New framing was added to make room for an expanded shower area and tub platform. The new tub was installed and the front apron was tiled. Sconce lights, recessed can lighting, and vent fans were wired and installed in the new areas. The dimmer switches controlling these items are now all located together in the entryway. Now, the homeowner has the convenience of having even lighting throughout the room and the ability to control how the brightness of the lighting from one single location.
In the shower area, the entire shower was tiled with a porcelain horizontal tile per Wheelhouse Design’s selection. Two shower heads and all the shower accessories were installed once the plumbing was updated. A pony wall and frameless glass door enclose the shower and tub.
A new custom-built double vanity cabinetry was fabricated, installed, and painted. The countertops used in the master bathroom are the same quartz used in the kitchen. Other areas of the bathroom were also topped off with Caesarstone in an ocean foam finish. This included the tub deck, window sills, and shower curb.
This renovation was truly legendary for this entire home and brought it up to speed with a fresh new look. What rooms in your home need renovating? Click below to begin your transformation or to get some more renovation ideas!
