“Small Carpenters at Large delivered a product that exceeded our expectations, and completely matched both the budget and timetable they provided at the outset.” – Leslie and Aaron Lipson
The homeowners of this recently purchased home wanted to update the finishes and make changes that reflected their contemporary style. Carpet and lightly stained oak flooring was replaced with wide plank ebony stained oak throughout the open first floor spaces. A mirrored wall was replaced with built-in shelves, and paint colors were updated to reflect the homeowners’ taste. The low quality kitchen cabinetry was removed and replaced with contemporary custom cabinets that extended to the ceiling, maximizing storage space. The two-tiered island was replaced with a single level island allowing for workable counter space around the cooktop. Glass backsplash tile and contemporary pendant lights help complete the kitchen space. A dated fireplace wall was replaced with modern shelving and a fireplace surround that included stainless steel tiles. This renovation successfully updated the space to reflect the contemporary style the homeowners knew would make this house their own.
