Here we remodeled a kitchen, living and dining room, and guest bathroom. In the kitchen, since the solid oak base cabinets were still in good shape we refaced them with new doors and drawers, and functional pullouts. Then we lacquered it all bright white. A tall cabinet was designed and built in the pop-out wall at the right of the kitchen which provided more storage and gave the kitchen a wider look, enhancing the visual greatly. The owners of the home wanted a coastal feel appropriate for the neighborhood in Manhattan Beach, but they also wanted touches of texture and earthy impact. We selected a natural rough travertine tile for the kitchen backsplash and contrasted it with sleek black marble counters. An island was added in the center of the kitchen to create seating, storage and a much desired wine and beverage center.
In the living room we redesigned the fireplace focal wall, conceptualizing and then implementing custom washed wood wall panels to hold the TV and fireplace surround. Thin black shale ledger stones were used on the face to tie in the with black counters in the kitchen and give weight to the living room wall. Living and dining room seating was reupholstered and patterned accent pillows were added to bring texture into the center of the space.
The small guest bath was recreated by opening up the shower area with walk in access. The entire shower is tiled with wood look floor tiles and massaging pebble stones were used in the shower pan. A honey oak Ronbow vanity replaced the old one and oil rubbed bronze accents were added to give visual impact.
