Open Concept Home Remodel Upper Arlington, Ohio
Home remodeling company, Renaissance Inc., helps Upper Arlington, Ohio homeowners and the surrounding Columbus area get the house of their dreams. From kitchens, bathrooms, basements, to whole house renovations, here’s the scoop on one of our latest open concept projects.
Upper Arlington Home Remodeling Project:
In this project, a young and recently married couple had just purchased their first home and wanted to renovate the entire house. While the Millwood neighborhood in Upper Arlington, Ohio, is very affluent and desirable, their outdated 1960’s house needed serious updating.
Kitchen, Dining Room and Foyer Remodel
Upon entry, this classic split level had walls separating the kitchen, living room, and dining room that made the first floor feel small, closed-off, and inefficient. The couple preferred an open concept on the main level of their home so they could get better use of the space for everyday living.
First Floor Home Remodel
Our remodeling team created an open concept on the entire first floor by first removing the major dividing walls, and then adding necessary support beams in unnoticeable places. Now the entire downstairs area is one big room with gorgeous views of the outdoors, porch room, and stairs.
The kitchen is anchored by a beautiful large island with a built-in drink fridge. Stainless appliances complement the granite counter tops and tile backsplash. White painted kitchen cabinets create a clean and modern backdrop, letting bolder elements take center stage.
Living Room Remodel
We redesigned the built-in bookshelves to accommodate a wall-mounted television and painted the cabinets white to match the kitchen. Now that the first level is one big open room we wanted to create a cohesive color palette that flowed from space to space. Accent rugs and creatively positioned furniture define the areas.
Before, the basement was brown; from the wood paneling to the brick fireplace to the built-in cabinets. Brown, brown, and even more brown. Now, the white cabinets and walls make the room seem much larger while the teal accent wall gives a “pop” of interest. The fireplace looks completely transformed with a fresh coat of white paint and new insert.
Before, the bathrooms were old and uninspired. Upstairs the master bathroom got a huge upgrade, with a large spa tub and organized closet, larger vanities with two sinks, and a marble and tile custom shower.
The guest bath, located in the basement, and the new half bath welcome family and visitors in with clean, contemporary designs.
Adding a bedroom to the basement
In addition to the new guest bathroom we added to the basement, we also designed a guest bedroom. The teal wall color continues from the basement into the bedroom and modern furnishings complete the ultra-chic look.
Home Renovation Project Summary:
Combining the clients’ style and choices with our experience and design skills really made this transformation great. Now, this house is modern, functional, and set up for maximum efficiency for years to come. In fact, the whole house is up to date as we also updated the electric panel to accommodate all the appliances and for safety.
From the clients: Angie’s List review
This was our first home remodel and my wife and I were surely rookies. The provider guided us through the process. At times there were disagreements, but the provider worked to resolve any issue that arose. Renaissance’s staff was extremely friendly and great to work with. They work hard to ensure the client is satisfied at the end of the project. The provider started work around end of October and original target date was Jan 1st. For a whole home remodel of 2,000 sq. ft., this was ultra-ambitious especially with end of year holidays. We moved in on Jan 10th, and work was fully completed by Jan 24th. Our home turned out OUTSTANDINGLY GORGEOUS. We couldn’t be happier with the final product. We would highly recommend using Renaissance Inc. to any of our closest friends and family members.
The couple have since added a baby to their family and are very happy and comfortable in their newly remodeled home. If you have an outdated house from decades past, there’s always room for modern improvements and added efficiency. Renaissance Inc. is a home remodeling company serving Upper Arlington, Ohio and the Columbus area.
