Palo Alto Home Project Description

This interior project included 3 main areas; remodel the kitchen, establish the family room as part of a great room and enhance the entry staircase. The kitchen was transformed by replacing dark dated oak cabinets with crisp white cabinets and adding black beauty granite for high contrast. Eliminating two small windows in the kitchen allowed for more upper cabinets; there’s still plenty of natural light from the bay windows at the eating area. Character and functionality was incorporated into the family room by creating a custom entertainment center and drop zone for the family’s personal items. The front entry staircase was dramatically enhanced by restoring the stairs and painting the stringer and risers from dark brown to white.
