Tune in and hear all the details of this home makeover in Westerville!
June’s project of the month is a whole home remodel including a master suite, powder room, mudroom, kitchen and more. The homeowners moved in just over a month ago and really want to make it their own. The lot is wooded and has the character that the homeowners loved. The homeowners came to Dave Fox Design|Build Remodelers knowing our reputation and being in the construction and building industry as well.
The project began with an idea of the investment and remodel and what they wanted to achieve. First were columns on the first floor, some load bearing and some not, that were intrusive of a good flow and did not make sense for the layout. They knew load-bearing beams required a plan, a company and a team that could make it work along with keeping the sound structure of the home.
In the project currently, mechanicals are wrapping up in the home including electrical, lighting, moving walls, adjusting HVAC systems and adding fireplaces that need venting. Drywall will soon be to follow. In the demo steps of remodeling, it can be a surprisingly quick process. Having that this is a larger process, it was demoed in stages to adjust for the capacity of all the remodeling projects.
The master bath is receiving a whole new design and has been taken down to the studs for a new floor plan. It was inadequate in storage space but was a good size to work with and adjust. The bath originally had two pedestal sinks with not storage. The original tub was free standing but with thoughts for the future, the homeowners wanted a deck mounted tub for years down the road. There is also a large zero entry shower to go along with the living in space.
The goal for the home is elegant with touches of rustic. Features and finishes of the project include quartz countertops and backsplash that has a marble looking finish. A whitewashed looking oak finish adds the rustic touch with a natural tone and touch of gray. White flooring to add light to the rooms as well as scones and LED can lights on dimmers.
In the kitchen, many of the original features were not ideal for their lifestyle such as the appliances and finishes. Other features were left to their original state such as a beadboard style in the cabinets. A two-tone look in the kitchen features a light and dark finish as well as quartz counter tops on the island and a subtler countertop around the perimeter to enhance the bold, chevron backsplash.
