This oceanfront home in Eagle Harbor is home to a mother and daughter. They wanted a peaceful, calm space that would feel like a hug. The finished home gives you the feeling you would get when walking through a beautifully designed Japanese garden. For the entrance, we chose a fun, light colored tile that creates a more inviting feel. We used the same tiles in the powder room since it is visible from the entrance.
To give the home a complete update while remaining on budget, we focused on repairing and refreshing the existing kitchen rather than doing a complete renovation. We started by painting the existing cabinetry to give the space a fresh feel. We then installed new lighting and replaced the island countertop, tiles, faucet, hardware and floor inserts. The existing laundry room off the kitchen was converted into a baker’s pantry using existing plumbing. We also redid the attached breakfast nook for a cohesive, budget friendly makeover.
To make room for a built-in sauna, we completely renovated the master bathroom of this oceanfront home and moved the shower and toilet for a better layout. While the vanity, faucets and lighting have a vintage feel, the tub, shower and wash basins add a modern balance to the space. We added a whimsical floor tile and placed a window next to the side of the tub to overlook the ocean. I love the feel in this room. I could live here!
Converting the existing laundry room of this oceanfront home into a baker’s pantry meant we needed to find a new spot for the laundry. We converted the garage into a family room and laundry room/mud room with a built in dog bath. The dog bath was a brilliant, beautiful and functional touch.
