Fresh Main Floor Update

Fresh Main Floor Update

May 10, 2015

I posted an interior remodel a few years ago of a home in Stapleton where the family room had the unfortunate condition of the dreaded TV "hole" and fireplace off to the side. It just always makes TV-watching and furniture placement here awkward. Here again is that condition (why did builders think this was a good idea?). There was also a little-used front formal living room and a kitchen with dueling peninsula and small island. I designed this couple's basement a few years ago, so now it was time to make their main floor flow and also make every room have a function. See below for the dramatic 'Before and After' photos.

Kitchen and family room, now open to each other with removal of peninsula and one nice, long island.
