Via Media, was a whole-house remodel that consisted of remodeling the upstairs and downstairs portions of the home. All spaces in the home were either cosmetically or fully remodeled. Special attention to the kitchen and master bathroom were given.
The kitchen, though more or less functional was in need of TLC. Working with the our homeowner, we were able to create an even better use of the space by moving the range to the back wall of the kitchen allowing more workspace on the island. Special features in the kitchen that are not visibly seen are a pullout lift for the kitchen-aid mixer, drawer microwave, and spice racks on either side of the range. The materials selected reflected the clients’ affinity for an industrial look. White quartz counter tops were used not only for their clean look but also for their durability. A white marble backsplash was installed to perfectly compliment the counter tops and give contrast to the dark-stained rift sawn own cabinetry. Long chrome hardware compliments the chrome Dornbracht faucet. Simple yet practical industrial lighting hangs above the island.
The master bathroom at Via Media was equally in need of an over-haul. The client’s main goal was to remove the oversized unused jet tub and enlarge the shower area. The designer presented the idea of creating a shower with a drying area in the space where the tub once stood. The vanity area, formally an enclosed space with a fur-down as well was opened up giving each client his and her storage cabinets and fully utilizing the length of the given wall. The shower controls were positioned next to the drying area for ease of use.
