Harco: Retro and Contemporary Whole House
This whole house remodel includes a remodeled kitchen, two remodeled bathrooms, refinishing floors, removing non permitted overhangs and carport, and removing a sun room that was used as a laundry and water heater storage. The laundry was moved to the garage and a tankless water heater was hidden on the side of the home. An exterior door was added in the master bedroom to allow easy access to the rear patio. A mantel was built with wood repurposed from the original garage door.
The kitchen was designed around the blue corner dinette, which was originally owned by the homeowner's grandfather. A wall was removed and a flush beam was installed to create an open floor plan and bar area. The blue accent wall ties the dining and kitchen spaces together. An outlet was placed at the underside edge of the bar as a simple electronic charging station. The blue stacked subway tile carries the dinette color scheme through the kitchen. Special planning and consideration was used to make sure the outlets fall in line with the countertop tile layout. The white and gray quartz countertops are neutral in design as to not take away from the backsplash and overall color scheme. LED recessed lights, pendants and under cabinet lighting provide task lighting and quality ambient light.
The two bath remodels incorporate a white and gray color scheme. Special attention was taken to make sure the shower niches fall within the tile layout and within the grid wall pattern the tile was installed symmetrical with no small pieces or slivers. The traditional shaker cabinet and quartz countertops are timeless and will look great for many years to come. The outlets were installed horizontal above the backsplash to allow more space for a larger mirror. Located in Los Altos, Long Beach, CA.
