After: The outdoor kitchen and dining area are part of the space, enabling the cook and guests to view the fireplace and converse. Seat walls flanking the fireplace provide additional informal seating.
Before a home makeover, this home had a tiny front porch and narrow, steep stairs. The home's transformation included the building of an extended deck across the front of the house. Now the home's entrance feels fresh and inviting.
This updated attic now features two bedrooms where there were once windows. In this bedroom, a headboard sits below the angle of the wall and extends past the bed in both directions. It offers an attractive backdrop for a chest and a desk that flank the bed.
A cream-colored sofa with a long lounge extension sits atop a blue area rug in this colorful living room. An abstract painting behind the couch pulls together the cheery mix of colors in the rest of the room.
To help this couple make the best use of their space, Brio Interior Designs reworked the closed-in floor plan of this home into an open concept layout. Designers eliminated the walls separating the kitchen and eat-in dining space and the formal dining room, allowing for enough space to extend the kitchen. The new layout seamlessly connects the spaces in the home, giving it an expansive feel.
A built-in grill is flanked by an extended countertop to provide a comfortable space to cook and dine on this southwestern style patio. Turquoise-colored Spanish tile trims the water feature, fireplace and countertop for a cohesive look throughout the patio.
The island in this modern kitchen is not only elegant, but it is also functional. The family was concerned with their lack of counter space, so the designers added some with the island. The extra long island has an extended countertop to give the family more room to prepare their meals. The family could also use the space as casual seating if they needed it.
This floating vanity extends from the bathroom's main vanity fixture. A marble topped stool compliments the modern influence in the transitional design. The warm wood cabinetry and mirror frames are a beautifully warm contrast to the cool toned gray and white elements of the room.
