Transitional Tudor Remodel

For this Transitional Tudor Remodel,

the homeowner’s main reason for hiring PCD was to give the kitchen and laundry room better flow for their busy family. When we first took on the project, the kitchen was boxed in, with only a small window to let in light. The dining room was closed off by a wall dividing the kitchen and dining room. Finally, the laundry room was open to the kitchen’s original breakfast nook.

When we were finished we opened up the wall that divided the dining room from the kitchen, removed the soffit in the kitchen, and added a wall to give the laundry room its own room.

Careful attention was spent in selecting the finish details. It was important to the homeowner to marry the remodel with the existing home, which was originally built in 1960. The homeowner wanted to pair hints of traditional glitz with modern convenience and we were happy to comply.

 

The two-toned ceramic tile floors were laid in a diamond pattern offering traditional beauty and function. The crystal chandelier over the dining table is a conversation piece adding character and shine. In the kitchen, we contrasted dark maple and creamy white cabinetry to provide balance to the space. The kitchen cabinets also feature a variety of storage and organization solutions–another request of the homeowner. Roll-out trays, pull-out trash cabinet, built-in spice rack, base pantry pull-out to store large utensils, KitchenAid mixer pull-out, and even a concealed pop-up electrical outlet located in the center of the island. But the star of the kitchen is probably the island. With its dark wood cabinetry, complementary countertop, gas range, and seating for 5 it completely stands out as a focal furniture piece. 

The homeowner also wanted a coffee bar / buffet area where their kids could be fully self-sufficient. In the buffet area we built in a mini-fridge that can be stocked with kids’ favorite juice boxes and sports drinks (located conveniently out of the cook’s main work zone!).

The outcome of this Transitional Tudor Remodel was a huge success. The goals of increased functionality reflected in the homeowner’s unique style were achieved through increased organization and the addition of period-appropriate details.
