Dramatic Transformations: Refined Home With Marble Floors

Where dark wooden features made this home's kitchen and bathroom seem uninviting, Wendy Raizin introduced white subway tile, marble surfaces and stainless appliances. The result is an interior that feels comfortable, yet refined.

Before: Dark, Small Kitchen

Small and outdated with an island disproportionate to the space, the kitchen desperately needed a remodel.

Open & Airy Family Kitchen

This kitchen was transformed from a dark space with a tiny island to an open, airy concept with a nine foot island and open shelving for a casual, modern restaurant feel. In order to compensate for removing the original upper cabinets, custom-made stainless steel shelves and a full wall of storage were added. The storage wall contains extra-deep cabinets throughout and a cubby area for small appliances like the toaster. The cabinets next to the double wide commercial refrigerator are actually tall pull-outs for added storage. Family durable materials such as wrought iron and wood stools were used so nothing is too precious to enjoy.

Fresh, White Kitchen With Stainless Steel Shelves

Custom, stainless steel shelves float above the kitchen countertops and blend in with the range hood. White subway tile forms the backsplash to create a clean, chic look with the white cabinetry. Black countertops provide a lovely contrast to the all-white space.

Farmhouse Dining Table in Bright, White Kitchen

A farmhouse wood dining table and chairs add beautiful warmth to the bright, white kitchen. Three vases of hydrangeas center the table to complete the fresh, chic design.

Before: Outdated Bathroom

This old bathroom was dark and cluttered with not enough storage or style. The entire space was gutted and redone.

Luxurious Spa Bathroom

Ashe marble floors and walls create a streamlined look for this luxe master bathroom. The large walk-in shower beautifully contrasts against the walls with dark gray tiling and features dual rainfall shower heads.

Double Vanity in Spa Bathroom

A simple, built-in double vanity offers plenty of storage for bathroom essentials and bath towels in this spa-like design.

Spa Bathroom With Soaking Bathtub

This renovated bathroom feels like a fresh, spa-like retreat where the owners can relax and unwind after a long day's work. Ashe marble on the floors and walls creates a smooth, clean design. High tech features include custom height water jets for stress and muscular therapy and LED soft white lighting.
