LAKE DESIRE WHOLE HOUSE PROJECT IN RENTON WA

Renton Whole House Remodel

Entry, Family Room, Kitchen, and three Bathrooms including the Primary were all remodeled in this Seattle area project.

 

Design Objectives:

This Renton home was straight out of the 1970s and had never been remodeled. Our biggest objective was opening up the kitchen, and making it more functional for the homeowner. Our second priority was updating the primary bath — after removing an unsafe balcony that extended from the bath, and repairing damage from a fallen tree.

Design Challenges:

We wanted to open up the kitchen to the family room, and that meant taking away a structural wall that also had major plumbing in it from the hall bathroom in the floor above.

We honestly just needed more space in that kitchen, it was so small!

Design Solutions:

We worked closely with our structural engineer to get everything right so that we could open up the wall completely. We also bumped out the kitchen wall to meet where the nook is and added a humongous window that faces the homeowner’s beautiful woodland back yard.

Special Features:

– Entry with mudroom
– Lighter, brighter kitchen with painted Crystal cabinets and diamond laid backsplash tile
– Walk in pantry with custom barn door
– Refreshed family room with built-in storage
– Open and inviting primary bath with luxurious walk-in shower and natural light
– Spacious guest bath with dual vanity and elegant tile work
– New powder bath with herringbone tile and vessel sink.
