As seen on HGTV's Renovation Raiders, this new basement living area features a flagstone fireplace with gas logs and flat-screen TV mounted and framed above the mantel. An exposed-wood archway, comfortable seating and casual but sturdy furnishings all help give the space a welcoming and informal feel designed to suggest the atmosphere of an English pub.
By removing the low-hanging cabinets, this renovated kitchen opens up to an island with a casual eating area, creating additional food preparation space and storage. The kitchen island features royal blue painted stools and three copper pendant lights. The open nature of the kitchen and living room spaces allows for easy transition between the rooms.
Once bland and trimmed with overgrown bushes, this renovated backyard now features a newly gray tiled pool and covered dining and kitchen area. The tall bushes and trees were removed to reveal a stunning view, while the worn stamped patio tiles were swapped for a simple gray cement.
This half-bathroom was renovated by the homeowners themselves. After a fresh coat of white on the walls, the ceiling was painted seafoam green. Matching accessories create a polished look from top to bottom.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
One of the toughest parts of the renovation was not having a kitchen. Even the kids got tired of eating out. After having to outsource almost every meal during construction, the family voted to turn the backyard shed into a chicken coop!
The devil is in the details in this newly redesigned living room. Designers at Brio Interior Designs wanted to showcase the couple's wanderlust in their home's update, so they included elements of the couple's travels in this Midcentury Modern renovation.
With an industrial-like style, this contemporary kitchen got sleek new gray cabinets, complete with an appliance garage to keep clutter to a minimum. Stainless steel appliances and metal barstools polish off the room.
