A Brooklyn Home Gets A Top To Bottom Remodel In These Before And Afters

After ten years, the owners of this converted Brooklyn Heights carriage house decided it was time for some upgrades. Designer Leonora Mahle took the opportunity to brighten the space, and add a variety of cozy textures.

The family of four was looking for a more mature and functional space for their 3 bedroom apartment. Mahle said that what started out as a plan for fresh paint and new furniture, turned into a total renovation of every room in the house, including the backyard.

All three bathrooms were gutted and reconfigured, with a new bathtub in the master bathroom, and a tub/shower removed from the main floor bathroom, turning it into a powder room. The owners recognized the unconventional request, but ultimately prioritized their need for more storage space.

Also important to the family was an environment where they could entertain. Mahle installed Custom cabinetry in the kitchen to add storage, and extended the counter depth to accommodate more room for stools. Along with the freshly renovated den, living room and dining room, the main living area is a cohesive open concept design with ample space for guests.

With this remodel Mahle was able to take a relatively narrow space and add light and airiness, while keeping the rooms functional for a full household.
