Here are a few before and after pictures of a rather large project for one of my clients. Over the summer, my clients completed a total renovation to their kitchen and master bathroom. During the process, we made smaller tweaks to this adjoining family room just so the rooms flowed and functioned in a better way. Here is a before of a wet bar area in the family room (the kitchen/breakfast room area is to the left through the doorway).
As you can see in the images, this was a very traditional style bar area with the walk around to serve your guests. There was also a step down from the kitchen area into the bar area.
And here's the after:
We opted to remove the "walk around" area for more square footage in the family room. This also allowed us to widen the door way (you can see it in the left in the below image) between the breakfast room and the family room.
The result is a fabulous updated look. Just one more thing to mention - we decided on a copper countertop to save a bit of money and inject some rustic charm into this otherwise traditional home. This is a win win for the budget and the look!
As I've said in the past, small tweaks can have a huge impact on your space. This area functions in the same way as before, but does so in such a visually different way! Hope you have a wonderful week. M.
