What to do with a botched condo remodel – and quickly? A trip To Europe while remodeling didn’t go as expected. Hammer and Hand asked me to step in.
Here’s the outcome.
This small condo doubles as a second home. And it’s next door to Pike’s Place Market. It must suit many functions including guests and family. This is about downsizing successfully. Where oh where can they put things?
The kitchen cabinet wall expanded and convenient custom cabinet pull-outs are the magic. You can quickly maximize storage using them. Look at Rev-a-Shelf for ideas.
The master bedroom offered little storage but with the aid of California Closets a solid solution emerged. A wall-to-wall wardrobe and clothing inventory makes every inch of storage work for the owners. The flatscreen also has its home in the wardrobe of the condo remodel.
Using more clever design and California Closets, we converted the ‘original’ closets into his-and-her custom spaces.
About those additional accommodations for family and guests? Another clever solution. Living next to Pike’s Market makes your condo a desired destination. A sleep sofa was an obvious choice but what about privacy for your guests? Using sliding doors that create a wide opening solves the problem but maintains the area to serve as a home office area along with seating for conversation and television.
This formerly ‘botched’ condo remodel now serves my clients as a cozy retreat and also as a magnet for friends and family visits to Seattle. As a designer, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of this rescue. Plus the opportunity to work with Hammer and Hand.
