The new owners of this Dutch Colonial home relocated from western suburbs to reduce their commutes and find a community where their kids could walk to school and friends’ houses. With this long-term view they decided to embark upon a comprehensive renovation immediately upon closing. This ambitious undertaking required precise organization, rapid decisions, and a construction team capable of mobilizing skilled and responsive subcontractors to meet the schedule. Landmark Services was retained by the client due to the quality of their work and demonstrated ability to deliver a fast-track project.
The existing Kitchen layout had been modernized in a previous renovation and opened to a Family Room addition. A few small layout tweaks and a total replacement of cabinetry, counters, appliance, and fixtures brightened the space and maximized storage.
For the Master Bath the new owners prioritized a large shower over a soaking tub and sought the addition of a bidet and storage in the room. By removing a door directly into the Bedroom we gained space for a wall of cabinetry and improved the flow within the Bathroom. The single window which was previously tucked away in a toilet room is incorporated to bring in natural light and ventilation. The existing walk-in closet across the hall was reconfigured and outfitted with custom cabinetry for a variety of storage options.
The Family Bath off the main hall received new fixtures and finishes to enliven the space for young children while remaining functional and elegant for guests.
The attic was transformed into a home office insulated from the hubbub of the living spaces below. Carpet was removed to reveal well-worn wood planks that would have required significant repair and replacement to be aesthetically pleasing. We chose to resurface the floor with a high recycled content vinyl system which simulates the look and feel of wide-plank hardwood in a fraction of the dimension. New paint and lighting completed the upgrade.
