Transitional styling of Kitchen, Great Room, Lounge, and Breakfast Room in understated elegance paired with the practicality necessary for a large family with pets. Scale, build quality and market appeal were dramatically improved by an addition, upgrade and overhaul. Removing columns and the separation between spaces while bumping out and enclosing the screened in porch we improved the visual connections, bringing the outside in and the inside out. The Family Room and Kitchen that were small compared to the gracious proportions of the home were now larger and part of the multifunctional living space seating up to 20 comfortably. The Kitchen serves avid cooks, teenagers darting in and out, regular entertaining and various craft projects under way. The unique central Lounge with loveseats became a cozy spot surrounded by the Kitchen, Breakfast and Family Rooms. For practicality and easy cleaning the carpets in the Lounge and Family Room are of polypropylene and the one in the Breakfast Room is nylon. All the upholstered furniture is sprayed to help prevent staining. Lots and lots of storage so that the Kitchen is clutter free but everything needed is easily accessed. The gray color scheme is soft and also interesting in the use of texture. The coral accent can easily be changed any time by a change in pillows, art work, and accessories. The space is timeless yet timely.
