Whitefish Bay Addition
A ranch-style house in Whitefish Bay was home to a lively family of four. Quickly outgrowing the existing structure, the family approached Refined Renovations to design a second-story addition with master suite and additional office for mom. The remodel also included a complete redesign of the first floor living area, the mud room, the kids’ bath, and new paint in both the children’s bedrooms.
New spaces were proposed with a contemporary feel and adventurous selections, but still with an eye for the needs of a family. A mudroom with drop zone was created in the transition between the garage and the kitchen. The kitchen and living area was created with an open feel. The addition of a built-in desk and bookshelf provide a homework station or a place for dad to grade papers while the kids work on projects. A large island dominates the kitchen and provides space for causal dining, while the generous and dramatic dining room table is always available for dinner or birthday parties.
Down the hall are the kids’s bedrooms, painted brilliant pink (sister) and green with a blue and white striped ceiling (brother). Sandwiched between is their bathroom, featuring among many fine details a woven look tile with glass and stone and a turquoise hexagon sink by Kohler.
Upstairs is a cozy office if mom needs to work away from the hubbub of the family. A luxurious master bath with double vanities, a generous soaking tub, and a large enclosed shower prove a favorite for the whole family. The master bedroom sits at the heart of the new addition and features gorgeous angles framing new windows, and a color scheme that invites rest and relaxation.
