This classic historic home remodel is nestled in the Houston Heights neighborhood, and included adding a second story in addition to completely remodeling the existing space.
The goal of this remodel and addition was to bring the space into the 21st century without losing its historical charm.
A unique way to merge the old with the new, is to incorporate original features or materials into the update. For this home, salvaging wood from the original space created the perfect opportunity to seamlessly transform materials of the past into eye-catching accents of the present, as seen by both the backing of the kitchen island knee space and the accent wall in the upper-level hallway leading down the stairwell.
Modern industrial lighting fixtures are a great way to set the scene with brass, gold, or matte black fixtures accompanied by Edison bulbs; re-created with modern-day LED technology to ensure safety and efficiency.
With the addition of a second level, came the opportunity to create a beautiful master bathroom.
Walk-in showers are convenient and quick, while freestanding bathtubs are relaxing and more true-to-period of a home in this historic district. When faced with the decision, our favorite answer is, “why not both?”
The end result: a perfect place for getting ready in the morning or taking a warm bubble bath at night.
Custom built-in cabinets are a tried-and-true way to maximize space based on each homeowner’s needs, and can be designed to fit any and all walls, closets, hallways, and more.
The built-in custom entertainment center in this project has all the storage and shelving space you could need for placing family pictures, storing movies, and hiding all the wires that pile up with modern electronics.
The custom closet cabinetry creates the opportunity to store odds and ends, clothing, linens, or any other personal items.
