Leawood Whole Home Remodel and Furnishing

Great Room - After

My clients wanted to update their family room. After carefully assessing the first floor of the home, we agreed that their needs went beyond new furniture in the family room. The kitchen did not lack in size; it did, however, lack in storage, flow, and function.

Creating additional counter and storage space was a must for this family of six, especially since the original kitchen lacked a designated pantry space. By relocating the refrigerator beside the new double wall ovens, we were able to install two space-saving pull-out pantry cabinets. The soffit was removed and taller cabinets were installed, increasing visual height AND the available storage in this kitchen.

The bulky peninsula was removed and a larger T-shaped quartz island was installed, providing seating for eight and extra storage below. While still two distinct spaces, the hearth room now flows beautify into the kitchen, joined together by the gorgeous new island. Because this new extension eliminated the need for their large dining room table, the old dining space is now occupied by two comfortable leather swivel chairs that double as a conversation space and as a relaxing TV viewing area.

The family room was also completely updated. After carefully space planning this room with comfort and ample seating in mind, the cased opening that connected the living room and the music room was filled in to define the space and maximize seating. The fireplace was refaced with stacked stone and the wood mantel was custom stained. A new sectional, a large tufted leather cocktail ottoman, two smaller ottomans, and a large arm chair with a coordinating ottoman provides this family of six with many comfortable seating options.
