Originally built in the 1980’s, this home in Charlotte, North Carolina was in need of an update. The space was completed gutted down the studs, allowing for Lauren Clement of Lauren Nicole Designs to come-in and work her magic, creating a space that is fabulous and functional for a modern day family of four. Clement was involved in every step of the process from initial concept, to demolition, to selecting cabinetry, countertops, backsplashes, appliances, lighting and paint selection, to providing finishing design touches. The family is always entertaining, so Clement selected quartzite countertops that are durable, yet stunning. New doors, windows and additions were added to the space to open it up and the layout was completely reconfigured to better suit a family lifestyle. In addition to the kitchen area, a pantry and fully functional coffee bar and breakfast station was added. The family is now able to enjoy morning coffee and a lite breakfast off to the side, without overcrowding the kitchen.
Right off the kitchen, a space was added for the mom to call her own. Built-in shelves and a desk for her to keep the family’s schedules and actives organized.
The laundry room was updated and redesigned to better fit the growing family. New cabinets to hide clutter, baskets and a hanging rack were added. Doors were also added to the laundry room for a safe place for the family’s dogs to hang-out. Clement selected a herringbone pattern for the floor and Fabricut shades.
The mudroom was added to help create a sense of organization for the family as soon as they enter the home. Separate cubbies for mom, dad and two children with coat hooks and shoe ventilated drawers – creating a space for all things and everyone.
This remodel is now fit for a family functional zone. Light, bright, happy and full of functionality.
