A Woodstock Kitchen Update

I’ve been slacking on regular blog posts focussing thoroughly on actual work and nesting/the One Room Challenge. Since this Woodstock Kitchen is in the home stretch, I thought I’d give a little behind the scenes view of some of the work in progress during my last few visits. The first visit was in the midst of demo day and the second was on countertop install day. Some really great progress is left to be revealed once we get these last few loose ends tied up and get some photos taken to share!

I’ve really loved working on the project and seeing all of the details come together. I’ve seen a few pictures from the client on how things are shaping up, but I can’t wait to see it for myself. This project has been such fun updating what was existing and not doing a full gut. (You can read more about that here.) What do you think? (Sorry for the poor phone picture quality… such is the case with works in progress.)

One Bathroom Becomes Two

The B family recently purchased a new house, and they have two small children. The new house has three bedrooms and one main bath upstairs, and a master bath with full on-suite bathroom downstairs. Because their kiddos are so young, they want to be on the same level as them, but they also wanted to keep their own bathroom if possible.

Since they also live in an area where adding a secondary on-suite bath is a huge re-sell point, and it will benefit them tremendously while they are in the home, they decided to explore the options of dividing the large hall bath into two bathrooms.

The space was easy enough to divide, and we would easily be able to add an entry to the bath from the bedroom adjacent to access the new bathroom. So we drew up the plans and got started picking out materials.

The house is set back on the property and is surrounded by the natural elements, so we brought some of that in our inspiration for the spaces. ┬áHere’s a look at some material selections for the spaces:

Here is a look at the tile work coming together in both of the spaces:

These bathrooms have come a long way from where they started. Not only have they fully taken shape in becoming two spaces, but they are really coming together. Hopefully I can show you the full reveal soon!

Have you ever considered the benefit of dividing a single space in your home to make two spaces that function better for your needs? Or what about taking two spaces and opening them up into one space? I think that the latter is more common these days with the growing love of great rooms that give you one big space to contain your kitchen, dining and living rooms without division.
