REMODELINGSpace Renovation
$600,001 - $800,000

-This unit in The Vistas condominium, built in 1990, had not been remodeled in 33 years. The original floorplan’s kitchen was closed off from the main living area. By removing the walls around the kitchen and reconfiguring the layout, both the living area and kitchen were married to the new open floorplan, creating a much more welcoming space and incorporating the beautiful gulf view throughout the entire living and kitchen space  
-The kitchen has been opened up to the great room for optimal light and entertaining. Not without its challenges- structural columns were seamlessly incorporated into the new design  
-Extra storage in the knee wall hidden by white leather counter stools was created. Working around the structural column, the expansive island boasts a 3” waterfall edge cascading with soft grey veining. The column highlights one of the many unique pieces from the client’s collection. A dramatic twist of LED lights floats like a cloud above the island  
-The refrigerator/freezer is camouflaged with soft wood grain flat panel Italian cabinetry. The sleek integrated exhaust hood is neatly tucked behind a cabinet panel. Our carefully selected pebble-like backsplash balances our color palette -perfectly tying together the cabinets, flooring, and countertops. Just around the corner to the left of the fridge is an unexpected wine refrigerator to house the client’s extensive wine collection  
Primary Bath:  
-The Primary Bath challenge was to reconfigure the floorplan and raise the ceiling height while working around structural walls and mechanicals, which is an ever-greater challenge in high-rise living. By removing the seldom-used tub and the outdated curved wall behind it, we created a dramatic focal wall for the sinks and storage. Sleek, cool grey Italian lacquered cabinetry captivates. This uniquely designed configuration was designed with a floor-to-ceiling tower, housing linens, and appliances to keep counters sparse and uncluttered  
-The sink vanities appear to be floating with setback kicks and under cabinet illumination. Simple sheet mirrors are enhanced with grey lacquer frames, and chrome hardware and faucets punctuate the space  
-The ceiling was raised in the center creating a tray-like effect with mechanicals running the perimeter. The shower and W/C were adjusted creating a more efficient floorplan. With attention to detail, the water closet door has a window-like appearance which adds depth and light  
-The shower brings an unexpected pop of color. Pebble-like blue, grey, and white tile adorns the shower floor with whimsy. Blue-grey glass subway tile set in a herringbone pattern cascades down the far wall. Utilizing the countertop material as a bench helps tie the elements together
