Modern Wonders
Through major structural rework, this kitchen was able to spread its wings into an infinite useable living space. Natural light and a 3-sided fireplace warm the room’s rich, dark hardwood and high-gloss cabinetry, defining a calm, classy and cordial atmosphere.

About This Project

This Masonville home felt outdated and unfinished with its confined, dark rooms and awkward transitions. The end goal was to bring the spaces together and complete a contemporary vision.


A steel beam was installed to replace the wall that was removed and intersects with an exterior wall beam flush with ceiling joists. This allowed counter to ceiling windows which flood natural light into the room, showcasing flat panel, high-gloss cabinetry. Cambria countertops complete the look of this spacious kitchen, flowing up the walls to the ceiling. A grand island enhances the spaces usability, creating a comfortable conversation area. Built-in appliances are present throughout including freezer drawers, integrated sub-zero fridge and dishwasher. A new Pella garden door was installed matching the new windows flanking the sink.


A 3-sided fireplace wall was introduced, complete with a stainless steel wrap around hearth tying into the stainless steel shelving above the sink. Ledge rock canvases this design feature, matching the feature wall in the kitchen. All new hardwood floors throughout the main level bring all spaces together without transition and horizontal wood grain doors compliment the new contemporary spaces.


The traditional staircase was updated with a new solid curved wall with stainless rail atop. Motion censored lighting brightens each step on the way up or down these stairs. Pot lights are spread through the spaces, providing a comforting atmosphere. Through some major structural work and a grand vision, this space was made new. From cramped and dark to a spacious, bright space, this once outdated home has a new modern spark.
