Open Design for a
More Connected Home

We had a client in Hastings who really wanted to open their first floor. There were several techniques we could have deployed to give the client a connected feeling in there home so we whittled it down to a couple basics. Widen the layout while keeping everything tied together. If you walk in from front door or turn around to face the living room from the kitchen, everything is in front of you and you feel associated with every room.

Floating Decorative Shelves

To open up space, we removed the walls surrounding the kitchen. With limited wall space, we had to store the mechanicals within the island of the kitchen. Floating decorative shelves were added to the island, creating a design statement tying into the family room fireplace and kitchen drop zone.

  • New risers, treads and balusters
  • Widening the overall feel to the family room
