The National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI) Remodeled Homes Tour is this Saturday, April 28th and Sunday, April 29th. We’re excited to have two great projects on the tour this year. The Home Tour is featuring 18 Kansas City homes. So, if you’re thinking about remodeling your home or just curious about some recent projects don’t miss this year’s tour!
Tour Stop 1 – Whole House – 15704 Overbrook Lane, Overland Park, KS 66224
This 80’s Overland Park home had a lot going for it but was a little dated. Donna Kirsopp worked with this wonderful family on a whole house makeover including a stunning deck remodel. A new staircase and timber roof structure enhanced the beautiful wooded views behind the home. The entire main floor was updated in the remodel. New floors, cabinets, a redesigned fireplace façade and upgraded lighting completely transformed the home.
Overland Park Kitchen
A wish for a walk-in pantry expanded into a kitchen remodel which quickly became a whole house remodel. The homeowners needed more pantry space in their kitchen and wished for more storage overall. An awkward corner in the kitchen with double ovens and cabinets was turned into a walk-in pantry. The fridge and ovens were relocated to make a more functional layout. Perhaps the most noticeable difference is the island expansion. The new island boasts a beautiful butcher block table and provides the perfect place for large family gatherings.
Overland Park Laundry Room
As the primary entrance off of the garage, the laundry room serves multiple functions and it needed more space. Removing the large soffit in the laundry room allowed for plenty of additional cabinet space. It turned out beautifully and the homeowners are thrilled with all the additional storage.
Overland Park Bathroom
The hallway bathroom in this home was dark and dated. It felt smaller than it actually was due to a partial wall separating the vanity and toilet. Removing the wall made the room feel much larger. The new vanity stands out with it’s beautiful marble countertop. The bathroom has all new fixtures including the stunning Kohler Mille Fleurs sink. The brass wall scones add the perfect finishing touch.
Tour Stop 17 – primaryBathroom – 827 W. 60th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64113
We’re showcasing the recently completed primarybathroom in this beautiful Brookside home but you’ll also get the opportunity to take a look at the hallway bathroom and kitchen renovations completed in 2016. Megan Bringman and the homeowners did a wonderful job remodeling to the home’s original character!
The primarysuite in this classic 1920s colonial had an awkward layout with dated finishes that were not of the home’s original character. The solution: redesign the footprint to utilize the wasted space and turn back the finishes to a classic palette! The closet has been located to the back of the space allowing a direct entry into the bathroom. Other gains in this space-a new window, double vanity, a walk-in shower and a private toilet area.
The home’s galley kitchen was tight while the dining room was large and underutilized. The new floor plan removed the peninsula dividing the kitchen and dining room while capitalizing on the extra dining room space. The island houses a drawer microwave and provides a great place to gather. White shaker cabinets, quartz counters, a farmhouse sink and large black pendant lamps create a classic, transitional design. The built-in shelves and bench perfectly accompany the dining room table while creating additional storage space.
Brookside Hallway Bathroom
The home’s hallway bathroom was ready for an update. It felt small and cramped as well as a little dated. The remodeled bathroom instantly feels more spacious with the new pocket door. White subway and round mosaic tiles in the shower reflect the homes 1920’s style. The bold printed tile floor adds just the right amount of drama!
