Great neighborhood, check! A home full of memories, check! With their children grown and out of the house, this Lake Oswego family home has evolved over the years, and the homeowners worked with Mountainwood Homes to create a plan to strategically update the most important areas.
The main floor needed to migrate from the style of 1984 toward current trends, and the homeowners desired a more open concept floor plan. Before, this kitchen felt dark and stuck in the 80s. The nook soffit was unnecessary and made the kitchen feel low. Walls blocked out the dining and family rooms, and it wasn’t ideal for entertaining. Now painted, white cabinetry and show-stopping quartzite gives a completely versatile look. The unexpected veins provide a geometric aspect and draw you right into the family room. The family room fireplace, wet bar and adjacent powder bath were redone using materials to match.
With a phased plan in place, the master bathroom was the next project to tackle. With a large area to work with, the goal was to better use the space and expand the walk-in closet. The oversized, tile tub was removed and a sleek, freestanding tub and hanging fixture now create a gorgeous focal point. His and hers vanities with Caesarstone quartz countertops flank the bathtub to provide ultimate symmetry and are packed with smart storage. Built in glass-paneled, linen cabinets with decorative furniture feet elevate the look. French-panel wainscoting adds dimension to break up the vast area behind the tub while a subtle wallpaper adds texture. The existing fiberglass shower was replaced with a tile shower. Heated floors warm up the tile floors. The guest bath was also updated.
