Asian Sanctuary Remodel
This whole house remodel, posed a significant challenge for the design team. The client had already transformed her back yard into an relaxing Asian sanctuary, complete with fountains, tea house, and custom Bamboo structures.
However this 1987 traditional home still presented with dated oak cabinetry through out the house. Throw in Dental moulding, wanscotting, flowered wallpaper, fiberglass showers, oak flooring, and a red brick firelplace and the challenge was on!
Now, how to transform the inside to compliment the back yard without going overboard with an asian theme. We decided to save the extensive oak shelving in the family room by first usng a red undercoat, then distressing them in black. the result, beautiful cabinetry that will fit any decor.
Bamboo Cabinets give stunning appeal
The new kitchen boasts stunning Bamboo cabinetry ( on a vertical layout), a combination of honed black and red dragon granite, and a custom glass swing door that will leave you breathless. The dated oak floors were stripped and stained a chocolate gray.
The downstairs powder bath ( formerly two separate rooms) were combined to create an ADA compliant walk in shower complete with stone sink and imported rice paper fused between glass panels.
Spa Inspired Master Bath
The upstairs master bath had a tiny fiberglass shower and a rarely used 1980 soaking tub. Today, this bath showcases an amazing walk in shower with a stunning mosaic tile motif. dual sinks and custom glass works. The bamboo cabinetry continues with a floating cabinet layout in both upstairs bathrooms, and throughout the media room, which houses an extensive music collection.
The addition of a deck off the upstairs master bedroom that duplicates the bamboo creations in the back yard, is a work of art. This project truly demostrates how today’s styles can merge to create function and livabilty for everyone.
