Rob & Michelle

Jump to a section
Functional • Streamlined • Cohesive • Cozy • Kid-proof

We’ve seen some weird layouts over the years, but this was one for the books! The twists and turns weren’t working for Rob and Michelle, who have two kids and run a daycare out of their house, and they certainly wouldn’t appeal to potential buyers. So we played musical chairs with the main floor, creating a massive mudroom out of the kitchen, which now sits in part of the living room. With a streamlined floor plan, the home is nearly unrecognizable—in the best possible way.

Before & After


When we turned the kitchen into a much-needed mudroom, we upped the sophistication by installing a stunning iron and glass railing. In fact, it doesn’t even feel right calling this space a “mudroom”—there’s not a speck of dirt to be seen.


“Camouflage fridge” is a tongue-twister—try it!—and a no-brainer. This completely integrated refrigerator looks like part of the pantry until you open it, making for yet another value-adding feature.


When you only have one bathroom in the house, it has to stand out. By adding square footage and tons of upgrades (a soaker tub, open oak shelving), we took it from cramped and dingy to a magazine-worthy private oasis. And check out that double vanity! If you have the space for two sinks, just do it.
