Warm and Inviting Home Transformation
This home in Arlington was uninhabited for quite a while. The previous owner had purchased the property as a tear-down and planned to build a very large house. Their plans fell through and he put the house on the market as-is, with the utilities disconnected.
The existing kitchen and baths were vintage mid-century, which did not work with the reinvisioned flow of the home. The new spaces reflect theclient’s lifestyle and personalities.
The primary instruction for the kitchen was to accommodate multiple people cooking at the same time. The second instruction was to open the kitchen to the dining room, as it was always envisioned as a working kitchen,as opposed to a showplace kitchen. “Antiqued” finishes were used on the cabinetry to emphasize the casual nature of the room. The cabinetry was intentionally selected in order to not feel too “precious” so that the children and pets of the home could interact without worry.
The house now works perfectly for the whole family!
