Ban Construction (home remodel) - 1543 Redwing Circle
From a caterpillar to a butterfly, that is the metamorphosis illustrated by the whole-house transformation at 1543 Redwing Circle.
Some adjustments were subtle—new paint and trim—others were more drastic—refinished family room and complete dismantling of the stone fireplace. But the end result was nothing short of fantastic.
“Home remodeling allows the owner to maintain their home’s pleasant location, neighbors and mature trees while simultaneously, giving the interior a facelift,” said Nick Ban, co-owner of Ban Construction.
And that’s just what Ban and his team accomplished.
The former kitchen was outfitted with eggshell-colored appliances and stark white backsplash. The kitchen counter was muted in a toffee-colored porcelain tile.
To create a more contemporary look, Ban and his team installed stainless steel appliances, a rich granite countertop, updated the cooktop on the stove and added an attractive charcoal-lavender backsplash.
In the dining nook, a splash of neutral paint made all the difference, diffusing the obnoxiousness of the former coral-colored walls. The area surrounding the elegant China hutch received a similar facelift with updated paint and unique granite plating.
And down the hall, the home’s biggest surprise.
A totally revamped living area revealed a custom fireplace and mantle accented in cultured store, replacing the dated stone fireplace and small insert. Updated walls were splashed in a relaxing smoky taupe and accented with white trim, a sophisticated upgrade from the previous coral-colored walls. Custom shelving in rich alder wood, book nooks and cabinetry further punctuate the relaxing living space.
The master suite was also contemporized. Formerly painted sea foam green and donning mirror-faced closet doors, the new suite was updated with terra cotta-colored walls, white trim accents, white hardwood closet and rich, plush carpeting. And the eye candy doesn’t stop there.
The updated mater bath is a study in contemporary-chic spa design.
Where wallpaper and dated oak cabinetry once stood, granite counters, a rich wood vanity and elegant fixtures now fill the space. Ban Construction also removed the room’s original jetted tub and replaced it with a high-end shower, further enhancing functionality of the space.
“The most important part of the remodeling process is to do an honest assessment of how you use your space,” Ban said. “The homeowner never used the tub, so it made complete sense to craft a bathroom around a high-end shower instead.”
