Built in 1943, this house only had one owner for almost 70 years. And it was a bit of a time warp, with lots of dated features that don't work well for today's lifestyle.
But now, it's had a dramatic makeover!
Before - typical of that period, there were distinct rooms, including a small, dark kitchen.
But now, it's light and bright. with a kitchen that blends seamlessly with the living room. It's the perfect room for the whole family to gather. And you know how everyone ends up in the kitchen when you have a party? Well this house can handle that with ease!
The kitchen changed the most, with all new cabinets, quartz countertops, an island with space for lots of seating, and lighting from multiple sources. One of my favorite features? This giant stainless steel farmhouse sink, with an industrial style faucet. You can do some serious cooking here!
I'm so pleased with how the glass backsplash turned out. It was a bit nerve wracking during the install (I forgot to order extra iridescent glass bars, so couldn't make any mistakes!), but it looks fantastic!
The living room is a big space with a wood burning fireplace and built ins as a focal point. By replacing the 'picture window' across the front of the room, we've updated the look of the room, while still allowing lots of sunlight to stream through.
So what do you think? Is this a house that's ready for another 70 years?
