Home Reveal | The Hinkson House

 

Home is a place for gathering, growing, and living your best life. That is why we are so excited to introduce our latest project, The Hinkson House! This transitional home features a remodeled kitchen, reimagined living room, and a new mudroom.

Maximizing on space was the theme of this remodel. Our clients were struggling with an awkwardly structured living room and a kitchen that was not nearly big enough to satisfy their passion for cooking. With two children and an awkward floor plan, we knew a few structural renovations would need to take place.

Before: the kitchen was small with very little space for cooking.

We laid the foundation of this remodel with brand new engineered hardwood floors. The white oak planks have plenty of beautiful variations and a wire brushed matte finish hides any future imperfections. No need to worry about pets scratching up the floors with a wire brushed finish. (Check out our DIY guide for refinishing outdated oak floors into beautiful white washed ones!)

When you walked through the front door, you were immediately greeted by an ill placed fireplace. This was moved to create a better flow throughout the living and dining area. To increase kitchen space, a wall was built in what was formerly the breakfast nook.

We love how the  Fenchurch Pendant  looks in this dreamy, neutral kitchen.

With the addition of a new wall in the kitchen, we were able to include one of the clients’ top requests: a mudroom.

By removing a hall closet and shifting the door to the garage from the laundry room to that old closet space, we were able to create a more functional entry. With cabinets for storage, coat hooks, and a bench perfect for pulling on boots, this mudroom met our clients’ needs while also keeping a consistent style from the kitchen to the secondary entry.

Our clients’ home has some incredible 11 foot ceilings in their kitchen, however, that space was not being used to the fullest. To maximize on space and style, we extended the cabinets to the ceiling.

Traditional cabinets can draw the eye to the center of the wall and we wanted to highlight those gorgeous high ceilings. Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter was used to add a soft touch of color.

Speaking of highlights, the tiled range hood and extended backsplash is nothing short of breathtaking. Cut from Carrara marble, the tile extends from the countertops to the ceiling and wraps around the range hood for an unexpected take on an essential appliance.

The polished nickel faucet and cabinet hardware are the perfect accent for the gray and blue tones of the marble tile.

The open shelves in the corner provide a fun way to display special or frequently used items and showcase some personality. Our clients can shine a little light on their open shelves with the Darian Sconce in distressed bronze.

Cooking and entertaining are a huge part of our clients’ life so a large kitchen island was a must! The island and countertops are crowned with white quartz while a charming farmhouse sink completes the island, making it hyper-functional.

Extending the tile from the countertops to the ceiling helped to elongate the space and really highlight those 11 foot ceilings.

With seating for six, the kitchen island is the perfect gathering place for guests or to simply enjoy a cup of coffee. The island is lit by the Fenchurch Pendant.

About that cup of coffee… hidden away next to the fridge is a cabinet full of small appliances, including the coffee maker. With doors that open and retreat back into the cabinet, our clients can keep the doors open as they go about their morning without worrying about running into them as they move around the kitchen.

No chef’s kitchen is complete without a dining area fit for family and friends. Some of our favorite chairs, the Loom Dining Chairs in Platinum, surround the Kapri Dining Table in an arrangement that is perfect for those intimate get-togethers.

The  Townsend 5-Light Trestle  draws the eye to the dining area and illuminates the gorgeous  Kapri Dining Table  and  Loom Dining Chairs .

Light streams in from a beautiful, large window, but when the sun goes down, the dining area is illuminated by the Townsend Five Light Trestle in matte black.

The original awkwardly placed fireplace had cut off the living area from the rest of the house and our clients were using their breakfast nook as an entertainment hub, complete with two lounge chairs and a television. With the fireplace moved, we were able to open up the living room again.

Gorgeous charcoal gray sofas frame the living space while a new fireplace, outlined in marble, takes center stage on the far wall. Our clients can easily welcome more guests with the addition of two Maxx Swivel Chairs in Umber Grey leather.

The  Maxx Swivel Chair  is one of our favorites! The buttery soft feel of the Umber Gray leather is so luxurious.
