Remodel & Addition / Kristin
This recent Queen Anne remodel was all about a leap of faith in space planning. The original main floor's layout flowed sensibly along the main axis of the home. Living to dining to kitchen; it plodded along. A little shake up was in order!
Moving the kitchen to the center of the home's main corridor allowed for a more dynamic flow between spaces, creating a hub that could service both living and dining areas. A casual dining room adjacent to a coffee bar and pantry creates a natural space for both taking in the morning light and prepping for game night. And the large kitchen island with seating brings a more social vibe for entertaining guests and supporting daily family cooking adventures.
The goal for the upper floor was to create a cozy and elegant primary bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Building within the footprint of the existing roofline, without creating dormers was a welcome challenge for our design team. When remodeling older homes many building codes collide with design preferences. The low ceilings required some creative pivots to meet the needs of the client and satisfy inspectors.
In addition to the major floor plan modifications Axiom's team brought a fresh look to the home with updated floors, millwork, and paint. The end result is a bright and welcoming space full of warmth and charm. Easy for a growing family to stay comfortable in for many years to come.
