1st Floor Remodel
6 Photos
In January of 2017, I decided to remodel the entire 1st floor of my own home. I love midcentury modern style and wanted to change our tract home to a style I loved. We removed the 3 types of flooring we had (carpet, hardwood and vinyl) and installed Coretec LVT XL Metropolis Oak throughout the 1st floor. We chose to save money in the kitchen and paint out maple cabinetry that had yellowed, to Sherwin Williams Pure White and update all of the knobs to bar pulls. Our Formica countertops also had to go, and we replaced them with Silestone Royal Reef quartz with a square edge detail. An Artisan 16 guage undermount rectangle sink was added to complete the modern look I wanted. We additionally changed out the light fixtures in the living and dining rooms, and installed a new gas cooktop. Our existing fireplace mantle was large and very traditional - not the style we wanted so we removed it and the tile surround and hearth. It was replaced with stacked stone to the ceiling with a curly walnut floating mantle we found on Etsy. We have a small 1/2 bath on the 1st floor and we changed out the lighting to LED bulbs, added a new midcentury mirror and installed Coretec LVT flooring to replace the vinyl flooring. This project took a month to complete and we love the transformation. We no longer have a home that looks like our neighbors - on the inside! To complete the remodel we purchased a midcentury modern sofa and dining set.
