A Total Home Transformation in Doylestown, PA

Sometimes a kitchen remodeling project or a bathroom renovation is not enough on its own.  This home in the beautiful Bucks County countryside was transformed into a showstopper by renovating spaces throughout the entire house.  The project was completed prior to the new owners’ taking up residence, and the resulting design provided more modern facilities such as updated kitchen and bath designs.  Much more than that, the design integrated the new owners’ style and personality throughout the entire home, such as the reclaimed barn wood incorporated into several rooms.  Have a look at the difference a total home renovation can make! 

Kitchen

The kitchen design completely remodeled the old kitchen (pictured below left), combining rustic details with crisp, white cabinetry and state of the art appliances (below right). 

A partial wall was removed (below left) to create a more open plan kitchen/dining/living space, and a reclaimed barn beam and Bucks County stone were used to frame the entry to the living area (below right). 

The space seen below left was also transformed with rustic materials into the stunning wall and pantry below right, using reclaimed barn beams, siding, and a sliding barn door. 

The wood theme is carried through in the warm wood floors and the oak range hood, and presents a beautiful contrast to the white kitchen cabinets and open, airy layout.

Powder Rooms

Two downstairs powder rooms were given elegant makeovers, and provide the perfect place for guests to freshen up.  The first powder room, below left, is a glamorous space with a furniture-style Habersham vanity and medicine cabinet, a bronze sink, and oil-rubbed bronze hardware.  All of this is beautifully illuminated by a chandelier and sconces.  The second powder room, below right, distinguishes itself with an eye-catching marble countertop and custom sink legs, along with another elegant chandelier.

 
 

Guest Bathrooms

The two guest bathroom renovations completed upstairs are the ideal setting for visitors.  The hall bath pictured here includes a wall-mounted DuraSupreme vanity with under-cabinet motion sensor nightlights that give the bathroom a sleek, contemporary design. 

 
 

The owners opted for a more traditional look in the other guest bath, with an eye catching black and white design.  The built-in tub was removed (below left) in favor of emphasizing the beautiful arched window framed by DuraSupreme black vanity cabinets and a window seat (below right). 

To install the frameless, glass shower with a Dreamline door, the old shower was removed along with an enclosure wall, as pictured below.  This created a much more open, airy room and left space to include a beautiful inlay design in the tile floor.

Master Suite

The master suite transformation was dramatic, and included removing walls and reconstructing the space to create a sophisticated design.  The angled closet (below left) was removed to add a gas fireplace with a customized petrified wood fireplace surround (below right) that created a clear focal upon entering the room. 

The entire atmosphere of the room was altered from color scheme to one-of-a-kind details like the customized inlaid medallion in the wood floor (before and after pictured below).

A new walk-in closet and master bathroom were constructed, with Koch glass entry doors leading from the bedroom to both of these rooms.  The bathroom layout and design was completely altered to create a clean, contemporary space.  As shown below, the old shower and tub were replaced by a large shower with a built-in bench and Dreamline shower door and a Victoria & Albert freestanding tub.

The DuraSupreme vanity provides excellent storage, and defined the style of the room as seen below.

The Rest

The remainder of the home renovations included a laundry room, Bourbon bar, home office, and wine cellar. 

The laundry room updated the space shown below to include white cabinetry offset by a leather finish granite countertop and a Maytag washer and dryer.

The fantastic bourbon bar pictured here includes plenty of storage and display space for a bourbon connoisseur’s collection, and sits between two living rooms that include a baby grand piano.  A perfect space for entertaining!

The home office shown below continues the theme of reclaimed barn wood, using aged barn beams.  Refinished wall cabinetry, ample lighting, and the finishing style touches added by the homeowners make this the perfect place to work or relax.

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, the basement of this home was remodeled to include a beautiful wood framed wine cellar, pictured below left.  The enclosed space incorporates a Breezaire wine refrigeration unit and Vintage View wine racks, as well as reclaimed barn wood in the table seen below right.

When the time is right, a total home renovation can create the house of your dreams.  If a complete home redesign is not part of your plans, updating any space makes a big difference.  Visit our kitchen design or bathroom design galleries to get inspired!
