Light & Bright Remodel in Newhall
February, 2021 - Issue #196

The now-expansive kitchen saw a reconfiguration of the space - the refrigerator was moved to the other side of the range to make the entrance more accessible.

Before the remodel, this Newhall home - built in 2004 - was filled with charm but was light on storage space and functionality.

"The homeowners wanted to update their house to add more utility to each space," says Aubrey Darringer, who designed the remodel for Woodward Kitchen & Bath.

Dimension, texture, pop of color - this kitchen tile, which is also found in the laundry room, has it all.

"The home had a lot of dark, tight spaces. It lacked storage and usable countertop areas," says the designer, who created more open-concept spaces by removing walls and extending cabinetry and tile to the ceilings.

The home's primary bath benefited from an enlarged shower, extended cabinetry, more expansive countertop space and lots more storage. Quality materials like Woodward's custom cabinetry and quartz for the countertops, shower dam wall and bench were selected for gorgeous durability.

"We used light and bright materials to make the spaces feel larger and more open," explains Darringer.

The laundry room, just steps away from the kitchen, features the same materials for a nod to continuity. Woodward's custom cabinetry now extends to the ceiling for added storage and marble-look quartz countertops provide gleaming functionality. Open shelving above the sink showcases the luxe blue-glazed ceramic backsplash tile and the homeowner's decor.

The remodel was also an opportunity to better fit the design of the home to the owners' aesthetic. "Their style is transitional - a mix of modern and traditional," says Darringer.

The secondary bath's tub was converted to a shower to improve accessibility while dynamic marble mosaic tiles for the floor and shower pan help the space appear larger. The custom medicine cabinet and coordinating custom cabinetry add both storage and style.

"We achieved the balance by using contemporary geometric shapes in the tile selections and adding traditional elements through the material choices, like the marble and the cabinetry designs. This brought depth, dimension and personality to each space," shares the designer.
