It came complete with a dated interior, including this kitchen:
Here is how Bryan transformed the house… doesn’t it look like a different place?
The house is a little over a 1000 square feet but it’s little details like this half wall that make it feel so much bigger than that. Bryan used Benjamin Moore colors throughout the whole house and did a great job of making the rooms flow into each other.
Bryan reconfigured the kitchen and moved the washer out into the mudroom to make way for a dishwasher. He used stock cabinets from Home Depot and had granite installed.
He and his dad just finished installing these cabinets, from IKEA, into the pass through into the half bath. I would love to have that space for storage! This area is another reason why the house seems so much larger than 1000 square feet.
I love that the half bath isn’t right off the kitchen… it gives a nice sense of privacy.
Stairways in older homes have so much character…
This room can fit a twin bed but Bryan uses it as a small den. He has a couch and electric fireplace set up.
The upstairs bathroom was completely gutted…
… and he installed this great subway tile in the tub. Does anyone else love the shower curtain as much as I do?
His master bedroom is a good size:
and the other one can easily fit a queen sized bed.
I was pretty impressed by the transformation Bryan pulled…
and how it didn’t look at all like a typical bachelor pad. 🙂
