]This room started as a dark room with heavy furniture that failed to accentuate the rooms greatest features, like the vaulted T&G ceiling. The room was brightened up with a light blue paint, added hardwood floors and a chandelier that would draw one’s eye to the beautiful, original ceiling.
This updated kitchen features sleek white countertops, dark gray cabinets and a kitchen island that can be used for both prepping and dining. Light hardwood flooring and stainless steel appliances complete the stylish design.
This living room needed a whole lot of style and a better use of space from its original 1950's look. The walls were opened up to give it a more social and inviting feel while connecting it to the kitchen. By raising the ceiling and getting rid of funky, low archways, adding new floors and brightening up the space with white paint this living room was transformed into a stylish, serene and mid-century modern pad.
The cabinets in this mid-century modern kitchen feature a shaker panel style for an updated feel. The upper cabinets were cumbersome in the space so open shelving was added which allowed for more style with counter to ceiling backsplash.
