Education Hill Remodel
Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room & Entry, Redmond, WA
Remodel Design Brief
Update a 1968 split-level home in Redmond, paying special attention to craft and authenticity. In Phase I we renovated the kitchen, dining room, living room, and front entry; subsequent phases of the master plan will include a new main suite and a home office.
- We converted the kitchen into a bright space with easy circulation and loads of storage. The new kitchen island includes drawers that open from either side and a Caesarstone countertop. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets conceal a refrigerator and pantry space. The new window and two skylights flood the space with light.
- The updated dining room is also full of light, thanks to another skylight and a sliding door leading to the deck. Cork flooring and fiber-textured wallpaper, hand-picked by the client, give the room an earthy, natural feel.
- We bumped out a portion of the front façade to enlarge the space. The client’s father built the custom cabinets that provide additional storage and hide a bar refrigerator. With wide, open doorways and coordinated flooring, there is a gracious, spacious flow from room to room.
- A coat closet with sliding doors and a built-in bench provide storage and ease in getting in and out of the house. The easy-to-clean linoleum flooring matches that of the kitchen. A new front door and porch refreshes the entire house.
