The renovated kitchen is barely recognizable as the same space. The more open floor plan is brightened further with a white and gray palette, stainless appliances, new tile backsplash and floating shelves.
A nook at the top of a stairwell functions well as a compact, built-in home office. Floating shelves provide storage for office supplies and decorative objects. An all-white palette on the walls, ceiling and woodwork makes the red-orange panels of the stairway accent wall stand out even more in the contemporary space.
With this open floor plan, the dining room is located between the living room and kitchen. To help define the space, the sofa and barstools face away from the dark dining table, while floating shelves frame the area.
A tiny corner was transformed into a small home office, complete with shelving and filing containers. By utilizing the vertical wall space and keeping desk accessories to a minimum, the space allows for both maximum storage and productivity.
