A new design was created for the main living areas of this home to better suit the family's lifestyle. This was achieved by adding an attached three-car garage and converting the esiting
garage into a family room and sun room.
This garage conversion allowed for an open floor plan and first floor remodel that successfully matched the family's lifestyle and remodeling goals. These goals included: a larger family room; an open floor plan connecting the main living areas; better flow and functionality for both daily living and entertaining; better storage and organizational opportunities; and defined study and reading areas that were still connected to the heart of the main living areas.
To this end, this whole house remodel created an open flow for the main living spaces, including a new kitchen, wet bar, dining room, family room, sun room, and study. Connecting these remodeled living spaces to the new garage is a new mud room and laundry area.
Also integral to this remodel was to make the garage addition seamless to the existing home, making it look from both the exterior and interior as if an addition had never been made at all.
Our kitchen is facing north and has one small window, hence there was not much light. The knotty pine look was getting on my nerves and so did the ugly, red Formica counter top, including
a 70th look linoleum brick floor all worn and the wood work being a very dark brown didn't help to make this kitchen into a cheery place to work in. I love light! Especially during Colorado's long winter month. I remodeled this entire kitchen from top to bottom for less than $900.00

Great job. Wish I were that talented, I'd get started today!!!!
We have cherry cabinets and dark countertops, what color would look best for the backsplash? We will be using tile of some sort, but after going this far with this kitchen redo, I don't want ordinary tile.

I think the small multi colored tile in co-ordinating color would be awsome! Some come with
the glass tile scattered throughout in complimentay color........Good luck on a hard decision.....
