Hearth Room in Olathe, Kan.

Hearth Room - After

Attached to the kitchen area sat a small room where the children watched a TV mounted over a fireplace with two chairs facing inward. Our clients did not like the old styled wood mantel and surround in golden oak. They also wanted more people to be able to sit and converse in the small area.

Arlene Ladegaard, principal designer of Design Connection, Inc., found a solution to the problem without completely rebuilding the fireplace. Painting the wood white from the dated maple brought the wood surround into the 21st century. A new tile selection worked well with the colors from the kitchen and tied both areas together.

After careful planning, a sectional with a chaise and a small ottoman for drinks became the perfect seating solution. They helped delineate the space and added additional seating for four persons to gather to chat or watch TV.

Alene arranged custom artwork to complement the colors and size of the wall space. Another perfect element for the wall space was a cabinet to house the TV equipment.

The sitting area blends beautifully with the kitchen and the mother can see what her kids are doing or visit with guests while she prepares meals.

Design Connection, Inc. provided space-planning, tile, furniture, custom artwork, painting and project management on the installation of all the materials provided.
