Applewood

GOLDEN, CO


Many people can’t see beyond the current aesthetics when looking to buy a house, but this innovative couple recognized the good bones of their mid-century style home in Golden’s Applewood neighborhood and were determined to make the necessary updates to create the perfect space for their family.

In order to turn this older residence into a modern home that would meet the family’s current lifestyle, we replaced all the original windows with new, wood-clad black windows. The design of window is a nod to the home’s mid-century roots with modern efficiency and a polished appearance. We also wanted the interior of the home to feel connected to the awe-inspiring outside, so we opened up the main living area with a vaulted ceiling. To add a contemporary but sleek look to the fireplace, we crafted the mantle out of cold rolled steel. The texture of the cold rolled steel conveys a natural aesthetic and pairs nicely with the walnut mantle we built to cap the steel, uniting the design in the kitchen and the built-in entryway.

Everyone at Factor developed rich relationships with this beautiful family while collaborating through the design and build of their freshly renovated, contemporary home. We’re grateful to have the opportunity to work with such amazing people, creating inspired spaces that enhance the quality of their lives.

Kids’ Bathrooms
Both of the kids’ bathrooms were well worn and dated. The client and the Factor team did a great job revitalizing these spaces while being respectful of the budget.

Hallway
We converted a recessed area in the hall between the entryway and the bedrooms into a bench with cubbies and hooks, creating a great place for the family members to drop their everyday items. The client chose a color that really makes this space pop.

Master Bath and Closet
The master bath and closet spaces were big enough, but lacked the form and function to be great. Though we used existing plumbing location to save funds, the fixtures and finishes were completely redone. The new bath has Italian Carrara marble throughout and additional cabinet storage. We reconfigured the master closet and moved the furnace above a new ceiling, allowing us to add a laundry area.

Factor replaced tile floors in the family room, kitchen, and entryway with hardwood to match existing areas, and refinished all of the flooring with darker stain. The wall and floor refinishing, repainting, and splashes of color give the home a refreshed and vibrant finish.
