The kitchen’s Latte Oak floor adds character to the room. “What I like about hardwood in the kitchen is that it’s more forgiving than a harder floor like tile,” says project manager Scott Branscom. “It’s warm and helps tie spaces together in this home.”
Designers wanted to create a bright, stylish main space in this home in which the original features were complemented by the modern updates, so they made use of an open floor plan to highlight the home's original exposed brick and hardwood floor that run throughout the main story of the house. Without walls to block off light, the myriad windows throughout the main space allow natural light into the room, creating that chic, stylish bright look the homeowners wanted.
Like the other main living spaces in this urban home, the dining room and fireplace area have a whitewashed wood floor with a low-gloss, low-maintenance style that creates a beautiful, fresh and clean look.
Sturdy hooks on the closet walls also keep bags off the floor, while rods offer space for hanging garment bags for favorite shirts for the next trip out of town, or off-season storage for seasonal clothing.
