We recently got a call for a major kitchen and bathroom remodeling in Arlington. A couple had bought their first home shortly after they got married. They both work in the marketing department of a local tech company and wanted to move closer to their work for convenience’ sake. Prior to getting married and moving in together, each had their own home and their own very different style. Now that they shared a space, they wanted to make it their own while still maintaining their individual tastes. They were interested in a country style, but were also very big fans of functionality and modern decor.
When the couple contacted us asking for our help in remodeling their home, we knew this would be a case where compromise would be key. Initially, the two couldn’t even decide what rooms they wanted our help with, but eventually settled on the kitchen and the bathroom. After we met them for a consult regarding the kitchen remodeling in Arlington, we knew it would be important to satisfy some elements from each of the two, but also ensure that the rooms looked professional and put-together.
Consultation for Design and Home Remodeling
For each room, we decided that keeping most of the elements very simple would provide an excellent background to showcase the more stylistic elements of the room. For both the bathroom and the kitchen, we kept the walls and floors very neutral, choosing a cream paint for the walls and a light granite tile for the floors.
To construct a flow from the floor into the shower, we used the same tile in the shower as well, but added a modern flair with some dark marble accent squares. This material matched that of the bathroom and kitchen’s marble countertops, which both had an exceedingly contemporary vibe. They really were interested in stone countertops, so we were happy to help them with our expertise. We then decided to draw most of our inspiration for the smaller elements of the room from country style. For the fixtures, we chose some antique, bronze pieces that weren’t too flashy and didn’t clash with the modern style we had already incorporated into each room.
Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Completed
For the appliances in the kitchen, we decided to forgo a unifying theme for every piece and instead chose each one on its own based on its uniqueness. Once our design and build process was completed, we stepped back and looked at the finished home remodeling project.Ultimately, for each room we ended up with an eclectic mix of modern and country style that wasn’t too overwhelming to the senses and that they were both very happy with. They couldn’t wait to tell all their friends at the office about us and about what a great job we did turning their first home into their dream home.
