Kimberli and Sheldon’s home has been in Sheldon’s family for three generations, with memories and original features aplenty. Some are charming, like a beautiful chandelier and a brick fireplace, but others—like a dated kitchen—needed to make way for modern life and their two little ones. We gave them the sophisticated upgrade they were looking for while honoring family heritage—and throwing in a big surprise, too!

Before & After
A KITCHEN … ARCHIPELAGO?
The most clearly outdated part of Kimberli and Sheldon’s house was the kitchen, with old wooden cabinets and a stove with only one functional burner. We abandoned the original footprint altogether and flipped the kitchen and dining room, giving them more room for both a prep space in the kitchen and a standalone island between the now-dining room and the living area. Add in those two-tone cabinets and a waterfall slab on the island, and we think we cooked up a pretty modern kitchen for this lovely traditional home.
A SECRET BEDROOM MAKEOVER
Originally the main bedroom wasn’t in the budget for Kimberli and Sheldon, who opted to spend that money on a sliding door so the kids could easily access the back door for playtime. We weren’t just going to let them get away with being loving, caring parents without helping them, too! So we snuck in a few extra members of our crew to renovate their bedroom, including the grand reinstallation of Sheldon’s grandmother’s chandelier. Now Kimberli and Sheldon have their own retreat they can relax in after putting the kids to sleep.
STUCK-O ON THAT BRICK LOOK
The living room fireplace was definitely a feature at one point in the house’s past, but time had passed it by. Fortunately we were able to see past the overwhelming amount of brick and hone in on the most impressive detail, which was the border of the hearth. By doing stucco around the rest of the fireplace and cleaning up the brick, now there’s a brilliant contrast that perfectly illustrates the intersection of old and new that Kimberli and Sheldon’s house now embraces.
