Modest Mid-century Remodeling

Mid-century is the feel for this main floor overhaul that opened up a 1960's rambler. A better flow to the main floor was created by connecting spaces through generous openings. The formal dining room was sacrificed to create a mudroom and built in pantry. The dining table found a new home in the generous living room. The kitchen peninsula was replaced by an island with seating at one end, making a better flow into the family room. A new opening into the living room created sight-lines and flow directly from the kitchen. This project is an excellent example of how modest changes can have a major impact on the livability of a house.
