Continuing on with our renovation tour of the town home owned by Found boutique’s owner, this week we are going to look at the entry to the home.
On the positive side, the entry area has a lot of volume and a pre-existing support beam that could serve as an architectural feature.
On the negatives…we covered the topic of ‘dated brick’ last week,
Finally, the whole stair railing system was just off, as it protruded out into the passage way and felt overbearing.
Here is a ‘during’ shot. You can see what a big difference just the paint made!
Fresh paint, new flooring, a painted beam, new lighting and a new stair railing with carpet all make this space fresh, open and welcoming. The stairwell was actually one of the trickiest parts of the remodel. Between trying to meet code requirements and being cost sensitive, we ended up going with fully carpeted steps, a sleek metal railing and clean, updated woodwork details.
Try taking everything out of the space, giving it a good dusting, then deciding if it should go back into the entry, and if so, perhaps it should go in a new spot. Instead of spring cleaning, let’s call it a Fall Freshening! Next week we are going to take a look at powder bath with more to come in the weeks after!
