Closing in the basement door, which is still accessible through the porch, and changing the powder bath door to a pocket door resolved the issue of multiple swinging doors and opened up space for a fixed island. The abandoned chimney flue was replaced with a new professional range and hood, landing space and wall cabinets that feature specialty glass and puck lights to show off the homeowner’s colorful dishware. Maple cabinetry with a rich sable stain and Mince Gold countertops add warmth to the space.

Silver Award for Best Whole House Remodel $200,000- $500,000

Design Consultant – Donna Kirsopp CKBR

Plans Manager- Leslie Hatfield
