If it seems like I have shared a lot of kitchen and bathroom remodels lately, that’s because they are the most requested spaces that I get asked to design. In addition, newly updated kitchen and bathrooms are a great investment into your home. They give you the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to resale and those are the two spaces you probably spend the most time in. So, it makes sense to remodel these areas regardless if you plan on staying or selling your home.

This home remodel includes a kitchen and bathroom makeover in McKinney, Texas for a single mom of three. She was looking for a fresh start and needed these rooms to bring her peace during a chaotic time in her life. Therefore, my goal was to create light, airy spaces that exude calmness and simplicity.
In the kitchen, we painted the cabinets white, installed new lighting, a backsplash and gorgeous quart countertops.
Then, we carried hardwood floors into the kitchen and breakfast nook. I understand that using hardwoods in the kitchen can be a love or hate relationship. Hardwood floors and water do not mix so I get the trepidation when installing hardwood in this area. However, with today’s open concept floor plans, breaking up flooring with different materials can look a lot like ‘capri pants.’ Yep, it’s an abrupt stop to the eye.Therefore, carrying the same flooring throughout the space brings cohesion, symmetry and beauty. My opinion is to do it! If you are are still against it, try vinyl plank flooring for the same look, but a water friendly material.

In the bathroom, we completely changed the layout and updated the space with new cabinets, tile and fixtures.
We used ‘granite peak’ on the cabinetry to tie into the marble tile and grey veining on the countertop. For contrast and to keep the space grounded, and not to feminine, black, metal mirrors are hung. It is a sleek, yet relaxing space.
The primary bathroom of this home was very small. However, the homeowner wanted to maximize the space with a shower and still have a tub. Therefore, I opted for a zero transition line into the shower and and nixed the door. This means that there is not a step into the shower. When done correctly, it is graded to drain perfectly. In addition, a rainfall shower head and multiple jet sprays add a luxurious experience to this room. Lastly, the glass chandelier over the free standing tub adds an elegant touch.
