Vintage 1970's Split Level
(Marietta, GA) 
Kitchen Renovation

Like many couples living in the Atlanta suburbs, these homeowners had settled into a neighborhood they grew to was near parents, their friends and children's friends, and the neighborhood pool. They were not enthralled with the notion of uprooting, and a new mini mansion was not really their style. Instead they decided to embrace the 1970's with a craftsman-inspired update.

The approach was to redefine the Public areas of their house by opening the plan, adding extensive millwork, and add a Screened Porch off of both the Kitchen and the Sunroom. They also wanted to update the remainder of the house cosmetically, and expand their Master Suite.

The approach to the exterior was straightforward. We chose to add architectural detail and interest, and to replace their outdated windows with new, incorporation an updated mullion pattern as well. We incorporated a new decorative railing design at the Entry Porch, added a period door, updated the Garage doors. We also incorporated planter boxes in the left and right upper windows, and added cottage-style shutters that extend from the tops of the windows to the bottoms of the planter boxes. This serves to elongate the windows to a more pleasing proportion.

While the interior was essentially a complete redo, we were able to utilize the fireplace wall at the Keeping Room. The rustic stone was a wonderful accent to the new interior. The new interior combined light wood flooring with rich walnut cabinetry and ceiling beams, and architectural features in light painted wood (including classic Arts / Crafts wainscot, columns, and friezes opening the Keeping Room to both the Sunroom and Living Room. Other details include a bold x-shaped ceiling beams at the Keeping Room, and a blue-black glazed island with x-shaped trestle legs.
