The homeowners featured in this article planned to start a family and sought to reconfigure the floor plan of their 1950s bungalow-style home. The busy Santa Clara executives desired a floor plan that would create a better flow, a more open kitchen, a private master suite, and, most importantly, a modern, masculine aesthetic that would be cohesive throughout the home.

Open Concept Kitchen. One challenge, as is the case of many older suburban homes, the kitchen was walled off from interaction with the living spaces. The homeowners, active cooks and entertainers, wanted a chef-style kitchen that opened up to the home’s social spaces enabling them to engage with family and guests while preparing meals.

The designer opened up the space to the living and dining rooms, and created a galley-style kitchen in a modern palette of muted grays. A raised eating bar with a dramatic waterfall side serves as the room’s focal point. Italian blue granite with jewel-like veining was chosen for the eating bar to provide a contrast with the quartz counters. To add texture, laminate wood veneer was selected for the cabinets in light and dark gray tones. Soft gray wash luxury vinyl plank flooring added style and durability underfoot. Stainless steel appliances, plumbing fixtures, and cabinet hardware added shine enhancing the modern features.

The Ultimate Master Suite Retreat. Another challenge was the master bathroom was located just off the kitchen and was often used as a guest bath. To access the bath from the master bedroom, you had to walk through a closet.

What was once a hodgepodge of rooms and underutilized space was transformed into a luxurious master suite retreat with more privacy. A custom barn door now separates the bedroom from the bath, where an extra-large shower with bench is positioned opposite a double floating vanity. The large format floor tile visually lengthens the bath space and directs the eye toward the end of the room where additional cabinetry provides ample storage for towels and toiletries. A separate toilet room and spacious walk-in closet complete the list of necessities in this modern bath suite. Staying consistent with the home’s modern aesthetic, the suite boasts a masculine palette of blues and grays.
