Silver Oaks Home Goes Contemporary
Today, our clients are enjoying their new space and a home design that fits their needs and lifestyle. The homeowner added, “We are enjoying our new kitchen and the beautiful quartz counter tops. The space has been completely opened up for a light, airy feel and a beautiful view of Spring Canyon from every angle. We were also pleased that some parts of the bid came in under budget and we were able to include a new furnace in the project.”
As designers and professional remodeling experts, we love helping our clients update their living spaces and sharing with them ways they can incorporate trends as well as classic styles to change the look and feel of rooms. We often see homes that have had no or just partial renovations over the years, which can result in certain spaces looking modern and updated, while others don’t blend with the aesthetic of the home. This is typical scenario and one that we love to tackle.
Such is the case with our recent Silver Oaks Project, a 1993, two story home that was custom built. The homeowner commented, “We had made minimal updates to our home over the last 26 years. We have raised three active boys in the home and all that they bring to a family. We were ready for a fresh start as the nest empties and the boys head to college.”
Now that the homeowners are empty nesters and their three boys have moved out, it was time for some rejuvenation of the home and to rethink how the space would be used. The homeowners had a local home builder construct their house and at the time, they received a good deal of input for the design and construction. As newlyweds, they designed and customized the house and it has served them well.
We came in as the result of a referral and mainly addressed the first floor living area, including the kitchen, dining room, and two living spaces. The main idea was to achieve an open floor plan, add updated design and uniformity to the space, and bring the home forward into 2019. This was a major renovation, as five walls were removed in the process and plans were modified during the project.
The kitchen, which is always the heart of every home, was overhauled from a small, compartmentalized space to one that is open, full of light, and that allows viewing of Spring Canyon. This view is one of the best features of this home and now it can be enjoyed every day.
We remodeled the entire kitchen to include new appliances, counter tops, cabinets, tile, and flooring. We also tackled a revamp of the built in window seat that was not being used and created a fully functional, welcoming place to read, relax, and recharge.
These changes drastically improved the home’s appearance as well as added value to the house, should the homeowners ever decide to sell. As kitchens and baths tend to add the most value to a dwelling, the remodel provides a boost to the possible selling price of this home and also adds tremendous visual appeal.
In addition to the kitchen makeover, the Silver Oaks home had five different flooring types. We remodeled all of the first level’s flooring to be uniform; hardwood throughout, thus tying the space together visually and creating a visual effect of uniformity.
Today, our clients are enjoying their new space and a home design that fits their needs and lifestyle. The homeowner added, “We are enjoying our new kitchen and the beautiful quartz countertops. The space has been completely opened up for a light, airy feel and a beautiful view of Spring Canyon from every angle. We were also pleased that some parts of the bid came in under budget and we were able to include a new furnace in the project.”
He added, “Ultimately, the floor plan works for us and we love our new living space. “We’re pretty sure the family dog, Gordy, who was the unofficial Supervisor on this job, is also pleased, as now he has an open floor plan to run through!
