The Timeless Arch
We worked with our client to design this first-floor renovation of a York County, Pennsylvania home. The house, built in 1992, was outdated, so we gave the kitchen, living room, master bath, office, dining room, and family room a new modern and sophisticated look. We used the prominent arched window in the family room as our timeless inspiration throughout the home to bring a cohesive look. Most 90-degree lines were replaced arches, which connected the design throughout the first floor. We modified the design of the existing wet bar by creating an arch with custom red oak wood stained black. The wet bar is complimented with a fluted marble backsplash and accent lighting. We designed custom built-in shelves in the living room and re-centered the fireplace to bring in more of the half-arched window design on either side of the fireplace. The kitchen was gutted and replaced with custom white oak and white-painted cabinets. Continuing to focus on the timeless arch, we added a dark accent tile to the wall with the arched window and behind the free-standing bathtub. The detailing of this design brings cohesion to using the arch, including the new stair railing.
