We are buying a house that is about 10 years old. Full floor plans included. We are open to all ideas! It has a layout that feels separated as it goes from kitchen > breakfast nook > living room. Would like a more open and communal type of living space.
Additionally, we'd like to create a spa-like master bath.
Open to any and all ideas for rest of the house. Would consider outdoor remodel as well and happy to pay for ideas here, too.
Kitchen/Breakfast Area (opens into living room)-
---swap locations of each--put breakfast nook near exterior door to porch; centralize kitchen for better "great room" access
---add wall of windows along back of house to show back yard (opens to forested/protected space with nice natural views)
---ideally we'd like to install sink and cabinets under/around bay windows; install new island to accommodate storage and counter seating; build butler's pantry-like storage; accommodate chef-quality gas range
---we are open to removing the existing built-in desk/2-door pantry closet and rear stairwell (all of which are located across from breakfast nook bay windows) to expand kitchen footprint and create space for center island, large fridge, cabinet/walk-in pantry and a small mud room/cubby area near garage entry.
---create new master spa-suite
---remove garden tub and existing vanity
---replace with expanded "wet room"-like dual-head shower and possibly stand-alone tub.
---install new double-sink vanity with functional storage and hidden electrical for toothbrush charging/hair dryer/etc
---open to ideas on best use of space. would like to maintain his and hers separate closets and space for linen storage but open to relocating those if reno requires
We are open to all ideas and want to make the house as modern/chic as possible.
