A Refreshing 21st Century First Floor Remodel

A 1970s, two-story home in Springfield, Virginia was transformed into a revitalizing space. Mark Pineau and Charles Roche, the lucky owners of the house just started talking about a kitchen remodel.

At first, they were doubtful for such change because they know it would involve moving several load-bearing walls, as well as extensive plumbing, electrical and drywall work. What really held them back was the cost.

Yet, after asking themselves many times if it’s really worth it, they finally tapped on Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes to find out if their ideas would work. The creative staff of Michael Nash  worked together to put up an entire plan from the remodel up to the interior design.

And believe it or not, it wasn’t just the cooking space, but the whole first floor of the house that undergone an amazing transformation.

To achieve the desired outcome of the client, Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes cautiously followed important measures which include:

Analyzing the scope of the project

The general remodeling plan is to update the kitchen for a 21st century look. The design formed by Michael Nash requires gutting the first floor completely and redoing it with the kitchen as an anchor. All in all, the remodel would include the kitchen, dining area, living room and bathroom.

To give the first floor a wide open feel, kitchen walls were removed to create a great room effect across the kitchen, dining and living areas.

Providing immediate solution to challenges

Plumb works came down to the walls that were removed. Michael Nash workers reroute the plumbing to the second floor through the interior garage wall and down to the basement. Required electrical work and drywall was well-handled as well.

Giving attention to details

A center island was built to hold the sink, cook-top and dishwasher. Materials used for the base cabinets were carefully chosen – a light cherry topped by an emerald pearl-color granite countertop. For the upper cabinets, Michael Nash used glass doors to achieve a hutch-type effect. The details brought more storage space.

The kitchen holds stainless steel appliances, from the cooktop, oven, dishwasher, wine cooler and refrigerator.

Compromising to the requests of the client

Since Mark and Charles share their home with their dog, they requested for a durable and scratch resistant flooring. So, Michael Nash suggested and used Brazilian cherry which satisfies the durability they’re looking for and perfectly match the whole remodel.

Educating the client of the project timeline

The project was truly huge because Charles and Mark went from living in a five bedroom to a one bedroom house. By providing a project timeline, they can prepare before the construction of what stuff to keep at hand for easy access. Mark was able to work at home and had the chance to oversee much of the remodeling.

Good thing, the Michael Nash crew worked every day to finish the project in time and they did.

Truly, a once old-style first floor is now a modern, cheerful space in the house. So don’t ever hesitate to pursue a good change because you just have to work with the right people to make it a success.
