Modern Farmhouse, 1st Floor

In collaboration with Masters Touch Design Build, the project focused on a comprehensive first-floor renovation to reflect the clients' personal style. This involved updating the kitchen and powder/laundry room to increase functionality, storage, and workflow, while ensuring a consistent design throughout.

Objectives:

  • Update the first floor to align with the clients’ modern farmhouse style.
  • Enhance the kitchen and powder/laundry room for improved functionality and storage.
  • Create a consistent aesthetic across all rooms on the first floor.

Approach:

To achieve these goals, we installed wood floors throughout the first floor to match the dining and sitting room, fostering a unified feel. New moldings were added to create consistency in open areas, and interior doors, including the front door, were replaced to reflect the clients’ tastes. The new kitchen was designed with a peninsula for additional storage and workspace, incorporating modern moldings, cabinets, and finishes.

Results:

  • The laundry space was opened up, making the washer/dryer more accessible, with new cabinets and countertop integrating seamlessly into the powder room.
  • The kitchen now boasts more usable space, with full-height pantries providing ample storage and a more substantial surround for the refrigerator.
  • A newly installed “coffee bar” replaced a bar cart, offering a permanent, functional space.
  • Wood floors throughout the kitchen, breakfast room, entry, and living room create a cohesive material flow, replacing the previous jumble of materials.
  • A new streamlined fireplace surround, along with new moldings and shiplap accents, impart a contemporary feel to the space.

Project Highlights:

  • Synergistic Design: Merging modern updates with a farmhouse aesthetic for a cohesive look.
  • Functional Upgrades: Improving everyday living with enhanced kitchen and laundry facilities.
  • Consistent Styling: Unifying diverse spaces with matching floors, moldings, and millwork.
  • Customized Solutions: Tailoring every design element to the clients’ specific tastes and needs.

This project is a prime example of our expertise in blending style with practicality, creating spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also perfectly suited to the clients’ modern farmhouse lifestyle.
