Small Kitchen Remodel in Beaverton

28 photos Homeowners were in need of more space in their cramped kitchen that hadn't been updated since its construction in the early '70's. Walls divided the kitchen and living room into completely separate spaces, and a half-wall further divided the dining room and kitchen. This made for an inefficient use of space, and fractured up space used primarily for entertaining.

The total of the structural work included an overhead beam replacing the wall between the kitchen and living room, half-wall removed at dining, and kitchen window replaced with a sleeker picture window. The cabinetry is custom solid-wood construction by Huntwood, painted Phantom Gray. The countertops are a white quartz, with waterfall edge at the end of the peninsula. Glass herringbone tile makes the backsplash, and gives a brightness and glow to the whole kitchen. The entire first floor has new hardwood and new paint in every room, along with new LED lighting. More windows were replaced upstairs, along with other minor repairs.

Mid-Century Modern Home Remodel

12 photos This remodel took a cramped home and turned it into a classic mid-century modern with an open floor plan, updated modern materials, and all-new appliances built into custom cabinetry. Modern appliances and materials along with larger spaces were among the top priorities for this home remodel.

The kitchen was completely gutted to make room for new custom sequenced Sapele cabinetry and Carrara marble slab countertops. The most stunning detail in the kitchen is invisible: an integrated refrigerator blends seamlessly into the cabinetry, providing flexibility for what is often the trickiest appliance to place in a kitchen. Period lighting and a diamond-patterned tile backsplash complete the mid-century modern look, while open shelving and a farmer's sink add texture and variety to the space.

In the bathrooms, the Carrara marble is carried through to the countertop and tile on the floor and in the shower. The strong linearity of the floating cabinet and horizontal stacked wall tile contrasts with the playful hexagonal pattern on the floor and in the shower. The wall tile is also a natural stone, and the stacked bond creates a cool and calming backdrop to the vanity wall.

The large areas of marble throughout the home are balanced by alternating patterns of slabs and tiles. This creates a continuous material palette that is distinctive and refreshing but doesn't clash. Because of the color variation found in natural marble, the hex tile was custom patterned on site in order to carefully control the overall look of the tile field.

Basement Master Bath and Powder Room

18 photos This SW Portland home had a basement master suite with a cramped, outdated master bathroom adjacent to an unusually large half bath for guests. Elements of the master bath were spaced far apart yet were too small, with no real vanity or counter to speak of.

The space was transformed into a large and comfortable bath with a large curbless walk-in shower and spacious vanity. The guest bath was reduced in size to its necessary components, a toilet and small vanity. Blue paint, tile backsplash and a decorative mirror give the small room its flair. Radiant floor heating in the master bath lends extra warmth in the cold months.

The windows in the master were the most challenging aspects of this project. Originally in separate rooms, the windows had unusual placement in the new space, and cutting the foundation wall to place new windows was out of the question. The solution became to use the window as an anchor to place other elements so that everything in the room read as intentional. The result is a beautiful and spacious feeling bathroom that manages to remain light and bright even in a basement.
