Cookie Cutter Gets Character in Madison, WI- NARI CoTY Award Winner!

Friday night we took home another NARI COTY Award for this amazing first floor remodel!
Winning category: Residential Interior $75-150K.

This home in Madison, WI had a boxy layout, small kitchen, and lacked character. Also, it was short on enough storage for pantry and small kitchen appliances. The homeowners wanted a more open floor plan with better flow. By re configuring the space, we were able to give them the home they’ve always wanted.

First, we opened up the entry to allow flow into a new mudroom and laundry room. We used wasted space in the old dining room to create these two new rooms. Then we turned the old laundry room into a walk-in pantry, giving the homeowners some much needed storage. 

Next, we expanded the kitchen and removed an awkward and unwanted third dining space. The first floor is now visible from the kitchen for optimal entertaining. In addition, the peninsula wraps around and flows into the sun room, allowing for extra seating. 

Lastly, we updated the home with “old house character.”

We stained the honey oak floors a darker more rustic brown. We added touches of industrial flare while making sure the materials looked timeless. Furthermore, we added an archway into the dining room with a tray ceiling. This gives the space some architectural detail and a wow-factor. 

In the end, we transformed this first floor from 3 rooms into 5 rooms. The homeowners now have a showstopper kitchen and dining space that is open to the living room. As a result, they couldn’t be happier. We checked off everything on their wish list and more. 

A special thank you to all of our contractors and carpenters who make our designs a wonderful reality!

Basement Laundry and Bath Makeover in Madison, WI

Our clients had a cramped and dark basement laundry and bath that needed improvement.

Their goals were to make the basement laundry room feel more spacious and comfortable for doing laundry tasks while improving the showering area and providing more bathroom storage for their lower level guest suite. Another goal was to add more overall storage to the space.

The existing walls closed the owner into a small dark hallway. We rearranged the washer and dryer and opened up the space by getting rid of walls and closet doors that separated the spaces. Now the bathroom is far more functional, with a brand new Kohler shower module and custom glass shower door as well as a convenient laundry area with great storage above. In addition, a large vanity with utility cabinet holds more cleaning supplies. It becomes very surprising that this brightened space is in the basement of the tri-level home.

The client chose warm green and brown earth tones for the room.

This gives the space a very updated yet relaxing feel which will be appealing to future home buyers. The custom glass door gives the shower a more polished look. These homeowners can now enjoy a more functional, easy to use area for years to come while providing their guests a nicer bathroom space.
