  • Redmond Home Remodel: Living Room Before

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Design Living Room -- Before

    What was the living room like before we got our hands on it? It was a large room with limited lighting, dark walls, dark carpet, and dark trim, making the space feel gloomy and dismal. At first glance, what seemed like a fireplace was actually a large structure with a firebox-less niche that only mimicked a fireplace. The living room also lacked any place to put things, making it almost impossible to store items without overcrowding the area with pieces of furniture.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Living Room Design Process

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Living Area Design Process

    Unable to plan for removal of the "fireplace" due to structural reasons, we proposed designing for extending and building out the structure, creating an actual, functional fireplace with a TV set inserted above it. To solve the storage issue, we designed the addition of built-in cabinetry and shelving to the empty space to the right of the fireplace. Lastly, for finishes, we selected new 4" white trim (to replace all outdated 3" wood trim), which resulted in a much more modern look.

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Design for Living Area -- After

    We modernized the space. The full-height, tiled fireplace makes a picturesque focal point for the living area. Sit back and enjoy watching The Big Game on this recessed flat-screen TV above the modern fireplace. Neutral tones highlight pops of color from the fire, the accessories placed on floating shelves above the built-in cabinets, the blue in the carpet, and the pillows, all giving off a comfortable ambiance.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Kitchen Before

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Kitchen -- Before

    The "Before" of this Redmond residence kitchen had a soffit, which lowered part of the ceiling, making this room feel small and enclosed. The appliances were placed awkwardly around the window, making light flow seem minimal, and giving a cluttered feeling to the space. The color scheme of this room lacked balance between cool and warm tones -- all the same color, so everything felt the same.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Kitchen Proposed Design

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Kitchen Area Proposed Design

    Trying to make this space feel more open and have a consistent flow, we proposed removing the soffit, which would create more ceiling height. We also asked our contractors to remove the double oven appliance for replacement by a single oven, and to remove the cooktop from the island, creating more countertop space. Lastly, we created a design for shifting the sink over, out of the corner, making it easier to clean the countertop in the corner by the window.

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen Area -- After

    The final outcome of this kitchen turned out exactly as we wanted! We modernized the kitchen, selecting all new, white, Shaker-style cabinets, which brightened up the room considerably. The mixture of warm-toned and light-colored, cool-toned countertops created a nice balance and made this marble-looking quartz the main focal point of the space.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Kitchen Before

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen -- Before

    Before we got our hands on this home, the kitchen and dining room spaces were separated by an unnecessary wall. The odd-shaped island seemed to be encroaching upon the closet storage, making the pathway feel tight. There was also dead, unused space to the left of the door, which was impractical.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Kitchen Proposed Design

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence: Kitchen Area Proposed Design

    This new proposed design would create a large, open floor plan and use all of the kitchen space properly. We would design the creation of seating space not only at the island, but also at a peninsula which we would incorporate where the wall once was. We designed for additional cabinetry there as well.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Kitchen After

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen Area -- After

    The new, open-concept kitchen contains separate areas within one large space, making the end result cohesive and functional. The new, expanded, quartz kitchen island is highlighted by two pendant lights above, which illuminate the island, making it the focal point for the space.

    The previously enclosed dining room space is now shared with the kitchen area. The bold, green chairs create a dramatic pop of color and are complemented by the uniquely-designed pendant light above.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Entry Before

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence Design: Entry -- Before

    This drab entryway lacked excitement, with outdated, small, wood-stained trim & doors, yellow hardwood flooring, and green carpet on the stairs. The entry also lacked bright lighting.
  • Redmond Home Remodel: Entry After

    Redmond, WA, Private Residence Design: Entry -- After

    In dire need of a facelift, this entryway area was updated with all new trim and a fresh paint job to the door and stair railing. We also replaced the old yellow hardwood flooring, selecting new engineered, dark-stained, wide-plank hardwood.
  • Bellevue Home Remodel: Dining Room Before

    Bellevue, WA, Private Residence Design: Dining Room -- Before

    The outdated dining room at this Bellevue residence had wood-stained trim and wainscot, an old beige carpet, and a large window with multiple panes, making the space feel very busy.
  • Bellevue Home Remodel: Dining Room After

    Bellevue, WA, Private Residence Design: Dining Area -- After

    We designed a facelift for the dining room, replacing the outdated trim, crown molding and wainscot for simple white, making this space feel much larger. The once multi-paned window is now a set of three single-paned French doors, making the dining room accessible to the luscious, green, backyard area. We also updated the light fixture, selecting something modern and exciting with LED bulbs, which not only brightened up the space tremendously, but also added a fun ceiling feature with it.

  • Kirkland Home Remodel: Front Exterior Before

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence Design: Front Exterior -- Before

    This house was built in 1985; with a copper roof, pink color scheme, and arch details, it looked dated. The owners wanted us to design a complete transformational remodel, both inside and outside.
  • Kirkland Home Remodel: Front Exterior Proposed Design

    Our proposed design for the front exterior featured new colors and building materials for the transformation.

    Our design of the front exterior gave this home a whole new modern, contemporary look. The roof with black shingles complemented the color scheme. We created new plans for the entire house, changing the configuration of space. It took almost a year to design the inside and outside of this house.

    The living room looked unexceptional. The fireplace could have been pretty, but for the huge mirror above it which reflected the railing from the dining room.
  • Kirkland, WA, Home Remodel: Living Room -- After

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence Design: Living Area -- After

    We offset the smooth, leathered-finish mantel of the fireplace and designed a high hearth for the focal point. We selected 3-D stacked marble stone finishes for the fireplace itself. We provided new furniture recommendations which complemented the blue water. The design aim was to simplify and create open-space areas which provide views of Lake Washington from almost any space in this luxurious, waterfront home.

    Our contractors knocked down walls. According to our design, a wall (behind the dining table) was removed, showcasing the newly designed and built-in wine display area. We provided complete design services, such as finishes, color scheme, and new furniture layout. Our mantras are “simplify” and “open space”; by having walls removed, we designed a large, open floor plan in which we created beautiful and inviting spaces to live in.
  • Kirkland Home Remodel: Kitchen Before

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen -- Before

    The "Before" of this Kirkland kitchen screamed HELP! From the yellow oak cabinets, fluorescent lighting, pink countertops and carpet, and overall awkward layout, this space needed some TLC. There was a raised bar with no overhang that blocked the kitchen from the family room, making the area feel choppy with wasted space.
  • Kirkland Home Remodel: Kitchen Proposed Design

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence: Kitchen Proposed Design

    We proposed a complete change to this space by removing the half wall separating the family room and kitchen, and creating one large, open floor plan. We added a large island, and relocated the plumbing and appliances to make the kitchen more functional for cooking and cleaning.
  • Kirkland, WA, Home Remodel: Kitchen -- After

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen Area -- After

    With no walls separating the family room and kitchen, the open-concept floor plan provides a large space that becomes the kitchen/dining/family room area. We selected and recommended space planning, furniture, lighting, and finishes. It took almost a year to design this house.

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence Design: Kitchen -- Before

    With dated cabinetry and pink countertops, everything seemed swallowed up in this kitchen.
  • Kirkland Home Remodel: Kitchen Proposed Design

    Kirkland, WA, Private Residence: Kitchen Area Proposed Design

    Improved functionality was designed and built into this kitchen. A bigger island was proposed, which incorporated the sink at one end and an overhang at the other end convenient for seating. Relocation of the stove put it much closer to the sink. We also recommended new appliances, finishes, and lighting.

    Function and style are key in the transformation of the kitchen to this large, open-concept modern space.

    This remodeled Seattle condo's color scheme features warm and cool shades of grey, contrasting with the warm hardwood color of the floor. Under the hardwood is an additional cork underlayment for noise reduction, so crucial in a condominium. Kitchen remodeling included maximizing additional storage, creating a new eating bar area, and installing cool grey glass tile backsplash. (It is the same tile that surrounds the living room fireplace.) New can lights in the ceiling and pendant lights complete the elegant look. To the right of the kitchen, the dining area showcases new acrylic chairs that are transparent, a clever way to give an illusion of additional space.

    This iconic, royal blue “egg chair” really “makes” the space with its brilliant pop of color. The various shades of grey in the entire remodeled Seattle condo seem to lead us directly to it in the living room. The focal point is the fireplace, which showcases its surrounding elegant vertical finish in cool grey glass tile (the same kind of tile as the horizontal warm, earthy, grey glass finish of the bathroom backsplash). The Space Needle shows up in the view outside the window of this Queen Anne condominium.

    Previously used as an office space that was dark and crowded, this room was transformed into a bright and open dining room. Taking advantage of the empty wall area, we added built-in lower and upper cabinetry to create a bar with extra storage. We removed the carpet and continued with wood flooring throughout. As the room was in need of lighting, we added two new can lights and a multi-pendant light for ambience, giving an upscale touch.

    The kitchen, dining room, and living room exemplify the open-space concept, in that they all comprise one long, spacious room. The far accent wall is painted a dusky blue, with all the other walls painted various shades of beige. The glass dining table and the Noguchi glass coffee table, both transparent, create a pleasing illusion of even more roominess. The window treatments are elegant Roman shades of designer drapery fabric. The blue sofa harmonizes with the blue wall, and includes custom-made pillows with a contrasting, eye-catching design. Opposite the sofa is the room's focal point: a floor-to-ceiling-height fireplace made of wood-like porcelain to give a rustic look. It contains a recessed TV screen above the fireplace. The bamboo flooring is set off by the blue and tan rug, which defines the living-room space in this expansive area.

    The shape of the kitchen was changed to an L-shape, creating roominess. Does the bamboo flooring look familiar? It’s an extension of the flooring in the living and dining areas, giving a continuous, clean look. A variety of finishes – the blue tile on the pony wall, the dark brown quartz countertops, and the metallic brown tiles of the backsplash – create an interesting, harmonious atmosphere. A way to minimize clutter has been structured: the microwave built in and recessed, and the open shelf made for inserting wine glasses and bottles. Can lights and cabinet undermount lighting guarantee that you can see what you’re slicing! It is a stylish, functional space in which to cook dinner.
