The White Project Interior Design in Chesterland, Oh

Homeowners often learn how to live in their homes, instead of making their home support their lives, which is especially the case during the busy child-rearing years of life. However, as kids grow up, adults begin to entertain more often for friends, and an opportunity arises to transform a home to function better, which is exactly what happened in this empty nest refresh.

We started in the kitchen, reconfiguring the floor plan for flow and function. Can you imagine that when this Chesterland, OH home was built, you actually needed to walk through a tiny opening to get from one side of the kitchen to the breakfast room? Our solution: move all of the cabinetry and reposition the sink to form a walkway that would open up the entire space. 

Though, that’s not the only area that needed updating. Because these homeowners never used the dining room as a dining room we redesigned the space into a sitting room for the homeowners to read and enjoy the beautiful view outside the front window. Here, trim was added to open up the fireplace mantel and lighting fixtures were dropped to tie everything together and anchor the room. 

In the refreshed powder room, we worked with a craftsman to design a custom vanity that looks like a piece of furniture and paired it with a fun wallpaper.

Finally, all-new, neutral-colored, dog-proof flooring was laid throughout the whole house for a cohesive and updated look.
