The interior of this 1987 French Country cottage lacked design and functionality. Nearly every room was outdated and underwhelming, but the home’s spacious and malleable layout meant that the home had great potential. A new remodel was exactly what was needed, and award-winning remodeler Bob Michels Construction was hired to bring this home back to the 21st century.
The existing dinning room was too large of a space and valuable storage was going to waste. The room was boring, lacked design and had large cognac tile work that needed to go.
The new space has expansive windows to brighten and open the relocated room. The result is a dining room that feels grand yet comfortable.
The existing entry of the home was very simple and mundane. Bob Michels Construction reconfigured the direction of the stairs to face the dining room rather than directly at the front entrance.
Now, the staircase is tucked in to give the entry room more space.
The existing kitchen was crammed into a small corner of the home and lacked functionality and storage. The cabinets, appliances, countertops, lighting, and flooring were dated.
Today, the kitchen is open and bright. New cabinets, appliances, countertops, lights, and flooring were all installed and the space was reconfigured so that the new kitchen now sits in the old location of the dining room.
The new flooring, entertainment center, and beams make the living room cozy and inviting while not taking attention away from the original stone masonry wood burning fireplace.
The laundry room has two dryers, a pull out ironing board, and ample storage and counter space for folding clothes. As a bonus, the laundry room was relocated upstairs.
The master bedroom is a quiet escape from the rest of the home and features a walk-in closet and balcony. The master bathroom has his and her vanities, walk-in shower, and walk-in closet. The space is comfortable yet elegant.
Bob Michels Construction won a 2015 Remodeler of Merit Award in the category of Interiors for this project.
