At times a remodeling project may primarily be about updating the look, color and feel of a room. At other times, a project may be driven by functionality. When planning your remodeling project, you should consider both. Your home should accommodate the way you live. Convenience and lifestyle are priorities in good design.
This client is a young lawyer and mother who offices primarily out of her home. With a toddler and another baby on the way, she needed a private and secure space within her home to consult with clients and safely store their legal papers.
Upon entering the front door, an archway opened to the dining room on the right and what was originally designed as a formal living space on the left. The client needed office space more than another sofa. To meet her need, the arched opening on the left was closed in with locking French doors. To preserve the home’s design aesthetic, arched uppermost window panes mirror the curve of the opposing archway to the dining room. The door was custom designed with fewer and larger panes than standard doors to allow more light in the office and create a more open look and feel. The wall color was lightened to further enlarge and brighten the room.
Working from home just got easier. To quote the client, “I love seeing the doors up! … we’re really excited!”
