Memorial Transitional

Houston, Texas

Our clients are a young, growing family living in a Memorial-area home challenged by “chopped-up,” small, almost unusable spaces with five different types of flooring visible from one location and several different ceiling heights.

Our design solution opened walls between the existing kitchen, dining area, and family room. We relocated the dining area to an adjacent room, which enabled us to enlarge the kitchen and create an area where the children can now do homework and crafts within sight of mom and dad.

Added bonus—our clients can keep an eye on the front yard, driveway, swimming pool, and backyard from the new remodeled kitchen.

We made ceiling heights more consistent by raising—and even removing—some headers between rooms. A new, larger window was installed over the kitchen sink, and all new wood flooring was installed throughout. Our focus on visual simplification made the entire space more unified and provided our clients with a fully functional kitchen and living area.
