Creating Space for family

At NJW Renovations Unlimited, we love the challenge of creating more space in an existing closed-off layout. This project produced a beautiful new layout in the home, created space, and incorporated eye-catching details, but family was at the heart of this remodel. The client came to us with the hope of keeping a family home in the family while updating it to include more space for gatherings, growing babies, and energetic toddlers, creating space for family fun! The result is a beautiful, inviting space, with room to grow.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry: Creating Space for Family Fun

Creating Space Dining

The heart of the home may be the kitchen, but the dining room certainly plays a significant role. The goal was to incorporate a large table that can seat everyone comfortably while creating a warm ambiance to fuel connection, conversation, and fun. The cherry wood molding that lines the ceilings, floors, fireplace, and doorframes are complemented nicely by the large dining table of the same color. Built-in shelving creates a cozy environment, and the large, picturesque window filters in bright natural light. Beneath the window, two cushioned benches are perfect for seating, reading, or just window gazing. The beige paint color is framed nicely with cherry wood, and above the fireplace wooden paneling was installed to create texture, contrast, and introduce a farmhouse feel. Framed perfectly by the paneling, are words that remind us of the importance of family and having a space to share with them.

Open Floor Plan, Open Fun

Creating Space Living Room

Another huge “must-have” on the client’s wish list was an open floor plan. Looking out from the dining area is a large room, divided into two simply by a vaulted ceiling and an exposed wood beam. This creates the feeling of two separate areas, while still being engaged with everyone throughout the spaces. Additional large windows welcome natural light flow while the earthy tone furnishings stay consistent throughout the space. Across the room, we are drawn to the fireplace framed with stone and a rustic wood mantel. On this wall, a darker paint color was chosen for more wood paneling, creating a pop of color that draws the eye and again, creates texture.
