Lake Country Home

A whole home renovation was needed here.

Location: Lake Country

Designer Credits: Suzan Wemlinger

Project Overview:

This home was the perfect place to raise a family – an ideal forever home. Expansive rooms to play and entertain, plenty of space for the children to run around, and easy access to the lake that the homeowners loved.

The problem was that the home was dark and a little drab, with cherry cabinets and dark walls. The kitchen, while large, had an awkward layout and didn’t use its square footage to its fullest potential. The fireplace in the main family room was too formal for the locale of the home, and more traditional than the homeowners wanted. Both fireplaces were given a complete overhaul, with iridescent blue and green tile and used for the family room fireplace and cream city brick veneered for the hearth room fireplace.

The islands were reconfigured for better use in the kitchen, which changed the overall function of the kitchen considerably. Custom white cabinet were installed, with one of the islands painted a deep blue to contrast with the white throughout.

The master bath was gutted, but the footprint stayed the same. The old garden tub was removed and a soaker was put in its place. Marble throughout kept the look classic. Blue faux grasscloth was used on the upper powder room walls, with shiplap used on the lower half.

All new light fixtures, newly stained floors in a deep chocolate, and new paint and cabinetry throughout the home updated both the look and the function of the home. The family room was outfitted with a custom sectional, covered in performance fabric.

This home now has new life and is befitting of a home on a lake.
