Multi Room Update in Leawood, KS

Family Room After in Leawood, KS

It all started with the dishwasher springing a leak while the clients were on vacation. Their home was built around 2002 and it needed to be updated. With the significant water damage it was the time to call in Arlene Ladegaard of Design Connection, Inc to help create a design plan and selections for the contractor, as well new furnishings to replace the old tired pieces that dated back many years.

The plan for the main floor included: New hardwood floors installed in Hickory imported from Oregon and finished to a dark brown patina, the golden oak throughout darkened to a beautiful rich coffee bean finish, as well as the kitchen cabinets, paint colors, a new kitchen backsplash and hood, countertops, custom cabinets and wall coverings.

The new furnishings included a few older high-end pieces that were most cherished, and family heirlooms. Arlene Ladegaard, principal designer, specified and supplied: furniture, area rugs, chandeliers, lamps and accessories that created the ambience that the clients requested, as well as 2 comfortable leather chairs for their everyday seating.

The lower level was a bigger challenge for the entire place had been flooded from above. Our clients requested a more modern look to the furnishings and to be well budgeted. The TV was to be the big focus in this man cave. The bar area was a real eye sore with its large refrigerator and freezer from the over flow from the upstairs kitchen.

With much creativity, the bar height countertop was lowered to counter height. The back wall was sheet rocked to allow for the massive appliances to look built in. The space needed texture, and grass cloth wall coverings was the perfect solutions.

With its beautifully lite ceilings and modern furniture the clients were thrilled with their new space. They entertain the grand kids and friends in lower level and enjoy their grand view of the golf course below.

Design Connection, Inc. provided project management, designs plans, tile, wall coverings, countertops tops, custom cabinets, furniture, area rugs, lamps, paint selections, faux painting and accessories.
