Fell’s Point Remodel 2016
The Fell’s Point remodel was one of those projects were a few cosmetic changes completely transformed the home. This home traded in its signature 80’s look for a completely fresh and modern design. The first space we tackled was the home’s small kitchen area. To maximize the budget, we kept the same layout but replaced all of the cabinets, appliances, & flooring. Knocking down the wall between the kitchen and dining room helped increase the kitchen’s square footage and also gave our clients the modern open-concept design they wanted. We also changed out the patio door with a full glass panel to let in more natural light and applied a beautiful Sherwin Williams Dorian Grey coat of paint!
Along with creating more space, removing the back wall allowed more light to fill the room and give the floor plan better flow. We also had a custom window bench and built in shelving made to add some character! And how could I forget the ceiling fan?! We swapped it out for a fun and whimsical light to tie it all together.
If you think the kitchen makeover was shocking, wait until you see the bathrooms! Removing the wall completely opened up the whole space and allowed us to relocate the vanity to the opposite wall. We then created a small linen closet, replaced the flooring and freshened up the paint with a Sherwin Williams Snowbound. Last but not least, we replaced the tub with a tiled shower and glass door to keep it open and airy! The colorful decor and accent pieces balance out the white finishes for a modern, yet playful look.
The second bathroom renovation in this home was one of my favorite jobs to date! We took this teeny tiny bathroom, opened up the wall between two rooms and created this spacious washroom. We kept the original claw foot tub, flipped it around to be centered between two windows and powder coated it to give it a fresh clean look. We also relocated the vanity in order to create a double sink and more storage below. Lastly, we built a new subway tiled shower with a black frame glass door.
The black and white contrast made a bold statement without being over the top. The Fell’s Point home had its set of challenges, but with a little vision and creativity, we were able to open up this traditional 80’s home and turn it into an inviting modern space our clients can enjoy for many years to come.
