After taking a chance on love, Las Vegas newlyweds Mindy and Paul went all-in on a search for the home where they could build their new life together. Over 150 houses later, they found the one in the right location with the potential to create the perfect space for entertaining. We took care of the oversized entryway, Roman style columns, and relocated the kitchen to make way for an open-concept flow complete with a large dining space, bar, and a nook built for game night. In the end, even though they traded a honeymoon island for a kitchen island, Mindy got the gourmet kitchen of her dreams.
Before & After
Mindy and Paul’s original entryway was wasted space, with a big landing and gaudy columns taking up valuable real estate. We wanted the area to feel more open and elevated, so we got rid of the columns and used contrasting flooring, new doors, and light fixtures to create an interesting setup without taking up floor space. Finally, we cut back the raised floor to create a straight step down into the living area—now this is a grand entrance!
We knew the bar in the game room had to look cool and sexy, but equally important was function. We included plenty of wine storage and a super-fun champagne trough sink. The radiant backsplash tile—a combo of silver and pewter mirror—contrasts beautifully with the swanky black cabinets. Mix in the stylishness of Mindy and Paul, and their guests will always want to be at their new home!
