Before: Great Layout, but lacks that WOW! factor.
After: Stainless appliances, improved lighting and new paint make a huge difference.
Before: The family room lacks visual interest. The oak and brick are a little bit boring.
After: Now the family room is an inviting space.
Contrasting colors add vitality to the room.
Additions: beadboard backs the built-ins, and a larger profile crown molding tops both bookcases.
Brazilian black slate covers the brick in an oversized running brick pattern - this adds a contemporary touch to a very traditional room.
The new, wider mantel is now the focal point of the room.
Adjacent kitchen is updated with subway tile and new trim and paint on the island.
The beadboard detail extends into the kitchen cupboards.
Simple changes improve the visual contrast between the fireplace and built-ins in Meg and Kent's family room. The result is an updated, welcoming room that flows with the rest of their home.
