Warm and Inviting

2010 Colorado Award for Remodeling Excellence 1st Place Winner, Whole House Remodel

The owners wanted to renew and remodel their 1985 home with the major emphasis on the Kitchen and Family Room as an entertainment space and to take advantage of their lake views. They also wanted to upgrade the surface finishes.

What We Did

  • New Kitchen design for the island to have seating space required removing the structural wall by the refrigerator, opening the Kitchen to the Family Room
  • The new Natural Cherry cabinets, soapstone countertops and stainless steel appliances, travertine tile floors and new lighting combine to create a warm and inviting entertaining area
  • The sunken Living Room and Family Room floors were raised to the same level as the Kitchen to create a more open and uniform feel and update the old 1985 design
  • Both fireplaces were converted from wood burning to gas and updated from the old brick to stone
  • Hardwood floors in the Living Room, Family Room, Stairs and Loft warmed the entire space
  • Refinished existing beams
  • Replaced old wood railings with new Hemlock railings and newel posts and wrought iron balusters, combine to give the entire living area a more open, integrated feel
  • Warm paint colors brightened and tied the upper and lower areas together
  • Existing double hung windows replaced with new large picture windows to take in the lake view
