G.M. Roth Updates a Classic ‘80s Home for Today’s Entertaining. (sponsored)
Our clients built their classic New England home in the ‘80s on a beautifully wooded lot in a great neighborhood in Bedford, N.H. They were looking to enhance the flow of the space and make it more current for this new stage of their life. They love their home and neighborhood, so resolving the issues would enable them to live there forever.
They love to entertain, but couldn’t have people over. The space felt dark and cramped, and not being able to use their three-season porch in the colder months meant having to close it off, removing the natural light from the dining room and kitchen area. Their goal with the project was to have a light open space, and for it to be the focal point of the home. They were looking for an elegant country feel that would highlight their exposed beams and charming fireplace while opening up the space to the beautiful backyard.
Removing the three-season porch and building a kitchen addition with large floor-to-ceiling windows provided the open atmosphere they were craving, along with space they could use year-round. The kitchen remodel included bright, white cabinets and a large, gray island in the center of the room — the perfect place to host guests. With quartz countertops and new appliances, the remodeled kitchen was given a newer, more current feel, while honoring the clients’ request to maintain the integrity of the original structure. In addition to the kitchen area, the clients remodeled their powder room, updating it with a gray vanity and stacked countertop that extended the overall transitional design.
All the changes the clients implemented, combined with new windows, siding and roofing, gave their home the warm, inviting feeling they were looking for to keep them happily entertaining for years to come.
