Throughout this project, the before and after photos show a complete DIY-type project, This 1989 home was gutted to reflect the look and feel of a trending modern-industrial house, embedded with rustic elements.
By working on a limited budget, it was decided to preserve the original layout of the house with the exception of the kitchen. The owners wish included easy maintenance floors that were scratch and water resistant, and an open kitchen. The Terracotta floor tile was replaced with a large format concrete-like tile in the main areas, and wood looking tile in the bedrooms and sunken living room, to add a bit of a vintage flair.
The sunken living room was kept, but a distressed wood tile with grayish tones was used to make a clear space delimitation to avoid slips and falls for guests.
As you can see above, the living, family, dining room, and kitchen all flow with an open-space view. The wall between the kitchen and the family room was torn down and the appliances were moved to the back of the kitchen to give it this area open feel. The entire kitchen is extremely functional and efficient, boasting a center island covered in reclaimed wood, and IKEA cabinets with RESTORATION HARDWARE pulls. Quartz was the material of choice for the countertops, for its clean look and durability. A faux wood beam was added between the kitchen and the family room to define spaces.
For warmth in the family room, the ladies added Old Chicago brick veneer on the main wall.
For the kitchen backsplash, budget friendly subway tile was used in a zigzag pattern.
The master bathroom boasts a cabana, laid-back feel, with a wood tile wall as the main focus. Rectified tiles were used and placed as closely as possible, with minimum grout lines. A custom sliding wood barn door was used for the closet to save space and to match the decor.
Black distressed cement tile was used for the guest bathroom floor. The walls were covered in white subway tiles and accented with Spanish vintage style tiles in gray tones. The RESTORATION HARDWARE Dutch Industrial vanity flows with the theme of the house.
The kids bathroom has a custom painted cabinet with polished chrome hardware and a white quartz countertop. Once again, a vintage element was added as distressed white wash tiles were used for the floor and shower wall.
