A Hint Of Green
Spring 2014 Remodelers Showcase
The homeowner’s of this 1971 home wanted to add a Laundry Room to their main floor. They needed to stay within the structural boundaries so designer, Mary Maney, completely redesigned the existing kitchen layout to gain the space needed for two separate rooms. With the footprint and function parameters established, she selected finishes and fixtures to make the rooms both practical and pretty. Stained cherry cabinets fill the Laundry Room giving the homeowner’s the storage they needed, a place to fold laundry and lots of hooks to hang coats. The tiled floor keeps messy shoes from tracking onto the new wood floor in the kitchen. In the kitchen, a light airy feel has been accomplished through the soft Mist Green color of the painted cabinets, the light grey granite counter tops and the white and glass tile on the backsplash. Vintage hardware in a pewter finish and white subway tile laid in a herring-bone pattern add charm to the space. A new window box lets in natural light, as well as, the wall to the adjacent Dining Room has been enlarged to gain a wonderful view of the back yard pond. In the Dining Room, a long built-in buffet was added to give the homeowner’s the storage they desired and to make entertaining for a large group easier.
