Packed with Perks

The homeowners moved here from Texas and have a love for transforming houses. One of the owners, being an interior designer, worked hand in hand with Gaspar’s to develop their visions into reality. This 1929 brick Tudor had great bones and a ton of potential. The homeowners’ goal was to create a more open floor plan, creating ease and better flow, making the home more comfortable. This was accomplished by opening a doorway into the living room, diverting traffic away from the kitchen, and opening up the wall between the kitchen and dining room, allowing them to be more connected to their guests and use the dining room more. They also wanted the home to reflect their style while bringing back more of the 1920’s charm, updated with modern conveniences, of course. This was done by adding panels and more lighting in the living room, creating a more dramatic feel; bringing the hardwoods back; replacing windows that looked original to the home for efficiency and functionality; updating the powder bath; and modifying the original radiators. The upstairs was also reworked to accommodate the family’s needs by adding a bathroom for their two children to share and creating an official master suite for mom and dad. For the master suite, the entrance was relocated, the closet made big enough to see what was inside, the bathroom rearranged to fit two sinks and a roomier and taller shower with a bench was created. In the end, the homeowner’s vision of a home with everlasting style was captured.
