Last Summer, we had the privilege of creating a more open space for our client’s home in Petoskey, MI. The homeowners came to us wanting to open up their downstairs space by connecting the living room, kitchen and dining room into a more open concept. They also longed for greater functionality in the kitchen and an updated look throughout. In addition, our clients wanted to update the look of their exterior with a new refresh of crisp white siding.
Together, we helped them decide on a design that met all of their needs, and we’re happy they feel the same way based on their recently posted review: “We were carefully guided, and assisted in making decisions that added beauty and value to our home in ways we had not considered. Each part of our building project was well documented, and updated daily through the Buildertrend app, which we found very helpful.” Explore here how we helped them achieve these goals as we provide a detailed tour of this remodel.
Feel Connected in This Modern Farmhouse Kitchen
We began with new flooring to create an open, expansive, and inviting kitchen. Rich luxury vinyl plank in a gorgeous warm Wellington Oak shade provides a luxurious background for the new kitchen. To create a connected feel, we used this same 100% waterproof, commercial-grade flooring throughout the downstairs.
WoodHarbor Cabinets in the modern Madison door style line the outer perimeter of the kitchen in crisp white, which complements perfectly with the Hale Navy colored cabinets of the island. The kitchen’s look is finished with Cambria Quartz countertops in the Annicca finish which perfectly recreates the rich look of marble while offering greater durability.
A Cozy Living Room Perfect for Curling Up Together
Since this home originally featured a drop-down living room, our first task was to raise it to floor level to feel consistent with the rest of the downstairs rooms. From there, we added touches that inspire gathering, such as a cozy shiplap wall and an electric fireplace. We also made sure to open the space so those in the dining room and kitchen could still feel a part of the activities in this beautiful entertaining space.
A Downstairs Laundry Room Meets Guestbath
To give our clients added convenience and maximize their space, we successfully combined a guest bath with a downstairs laundry room. There was even space to fit overhead Kraftmaid cabinetry in a decorative Lyndale shaker style finished in the elegant gray Serenity Suede tone.
The homeowners couldn’t be happier with the finished design, look, and construction. They commented that they would recommend McBride “without reservation.” That means so much to our dedicated team, who worked hard to bring their vision to life. The homeowners added this to their online review: “The coordination with other trades was first class and managed well. Pride in craftsmanship is something that is rare to find in today’s world, these are folks who truly take pride in what they do and it shows. Home is always home, but the team of McBride Remodeling brought everything together to make our tired old house a real home again. We can’t thank them enough.” You are quite welcome! It was truly our pleasure!
