This remodel took a cramped home and turned it into a classic mid-century modern with an open floor plan, updated modern materials, and all-new appliances built into custom cabinetry. Modern appliances and materials along with larger spaces were among the top priorities for this home remodel.
The kitchen was completely gutted to make room for new custom sequenced Sapele cabinetry and Carrara marble slab countertops. The most stunning detail in the kitchen is invisible: an integrated refrigerator blends seamlessly into the cabinetry, providing flexibility for what is often the trickiest appliance to place in a kitchen. Period lighting and a diamond-patterned tile backsplash complete the mid-century modern look, while open shelving and a farmer's sink add texture and variety to the space.
In the bathrooms, the Carrara marble is carried through to the countertop and tile on the floor and in the shower. The strong linearity of the floating cabinet and horizontal stacked wall tile contrasts with the playful hexagonal pattern on the floor and in the shower. The wall tile is also a natural stone, and the stacked bond creates a cool and calming backdrop to the vanity wall.
The large areas of marble throughout the home are balanced by alternating patterns of slabs and tiles. This creates a continuous material palette that is distinctive and refreshing but doesn't clash. Because of the color variation found in natural marble, the hex tile was custom patterned on site in order to carefully control the overall look of the tile field.
