Our Dallas clients were living in a 1968 home in the Northwood Hills neighborhood that they loved, but it wasn’t functional for their lifestyle. They love to entertain and do so frequently, but the layout of their house wasn’t practical. They had a galley kitchen closed off to much of the home and they were not using the formal living and dining room. They wanted to see how this space could be better utilized and wanted a more open and updated kitchen space that fits their lifestyle, and they wanted to incorporate a wet bar!
We demoed the brick and dark paneling, increased the size of most openings, and completely opened up the kitchen. The fireplace surround was updated, beautiful Olympus quartzite countertops were installed throughout the kitchen and butler’s pantry atop the white cabinets. A large two-level island with seating for guests was built to create some separation between the kitchen and dining room. Contrasting black cabinets were used for the island, as well as for the bar area. Iconic Classic Globe small pendants were hung above the island to finish it off. Black Supreme granite countertops with a leathered finish were installed in the wet bar. Off the kitchen was a laundry room and powder bath that were also updated. They wanted to have a little fun with these spaces, so the clients chose a geometric black and white Bella Mori porcelain tile. Coordinating black and white polka dot wallpaper was installed in the laundry room and a fun floral black and white wallpaper in the powder bath.
Their butler’s pantry, the added storage space, and the overall functionality has made entertaining so much easier and keeps unwanted things out of sight, whether the guests are sitting at the island or at the wet bar! The clients absolutely love their new space and the way in which have transformed their lives and really love entertaining even more now!
