BEFORE / AFTER
Having a large, usable, yard space in a safe, quiet neighborhood was crucial for this Denver family of four and was a major reason they chose to move to this Tudor-style home in Bonnie Brae.
The home was in dire need of renovation and updating, as a previous addition had not aged well. Heavy venetian plaster and a variety of wall niches did not fit with the new owners’ vision for the interior. Factor worked with the client to improve the look and feel of the entire interior of the home, repainting all surfaces in the house and designing and building unique custom built-ins that maximize the existing space.
The kitchen was outdated and lacked storage space. Ill-placed openings between the kitchen and dining room, along with an island that did not accommodate seating, made it difficult to have casual meals for the kids. Adjusting these openings gave greater latitude for reconfiguring the kitchen. We designed a peninsula into the kitchen to provide space for bar stools. We also added a custom bench with storage to a small bump out, which created a breakfast nook out of an odd corner and allowed integration of the client’s existing furniture.
