After 30 years of living and raising a family in their 1960s home, our homeowners had long envisioned a change to what would be their forever home. What triggered a whole house remodel was a necessary septic system replacement including sewer pipe in the house. With the ability to stay on property in their RV, it was the perfect opportunity to make the leap.
A cohesive look was planned throughout the home. The kitchen design featured a two-tone color palette, both in the cabinetry and countertops. The kitchen range wall countertops were designed to carry through the dining and laundry rooms. Mixed metals in gold and silver throughout the project — appliances, handles and lighting – were planned. Colors were chosen in blue tones to provide a calm and serene look: blue walls in the kitchen and dining areas, a pop of teal in the hall bath niche, and the wood plank blue tile in the primary bathroom.
The existing living room was converted into a formal dining room by removing a fireplace and the half wall by the front door and building a full wall to extend the kitchen. The dining room entry was moved to align better with the kitchen. A prep island was built with seating and new appliances installed, including a microwave drawer in the island and a five-in-one wall oven: convection oven, toaster oven, warming/proofing oven, precision cooking oven, and microwave. The footprints of the primary and adjacent hall bathrooms were changed to accommodate extra space in the primary bath, and a linen area was removed. Vinyl plank flooring was installed throughout the house.
In the words of our homeowners’, “We knew we wanted to have the Lenton Company take on the project as we wanted it to be perfect. Well, it is perfect! It’s even better than we ever could have imagined. We still have moments where we turn the lights on in the kitchen and just stare in complete awe that this is now our home!”
