Sometimes, you just have to rip it all out and start fresh — and that’s exactly what we did with this southern-farmhouse-style home.
Fortunately, this spacious structure had more than enough room to do just that.
A Traditional Southern Farmhouse Kitchen
In this exhaustive and detailed remodel, few surfaces went untouched. We began with the kitchen, and the goal here was a stretch back to Southern farmhouse tradition — large, open, breezy homes, with light, airy colors and simple color schemes.
Between handy, hidden spice drawer pullouts and a classically styled oven hood, the focus was bringing the feel of Texas farmhouse kitchens of the past into a beautiful melding with the modern appliances and conveniences of the future.
Granite countertops and marble tile backsplashes seal the deal, adding a sweet touch of luxury to an otherwise-simple layout, hearkening back to an earlier time.
But that’s not the only bit of the kitchen that got a makeover! Painted cabinets with glazed-edge highlights really tie the room together, providing ample space for dishes and farmhouse knick knacks alike.
The flooring got an upgrade too, where we replaced the old, time-weathered wood flooring with strategically worn Turkish Travertine tiles.
Even the island was redone! Gorgeous light granite countertop patterns swirl above painted wood paneling, all over smooth cream tiles below. It all plays into the light, airy, farmhouse feeling of the rest of the home.
Like this spacious Southern sitting room.
Vast Open Windows and Southern Sitting Rooms
Well, maybe just one sitting room, but it’s wide enough to accommodate even the largest Texas farmhouse party! Parties and carpets (even traditional Southern farmhouse parties) just don’t mix, so we put in all new hardwood flooring to make cleanup a breeze.
Large single-hung windows with brilliant white shutters make bringing the Southern breeze inside (or keeping the Southern heat outside!) a snap.
And let’s not forget the fireplace! With red brick surrounding a traditional painted mantel, you almost feel like you’re back in a Southern farmhouse from summers past.
Until you reach the bathroom, that is, where the modern era has swept in and taken ahold.
A Little Piece of the Modern
Traditional is nice and all, but sometimes, you just need modern convenience!
And you can find that in spades in this spacious master bath.
We started by ripping out the old flooring, replacing it with the same exotic Turkish Travertine tile found in the kitchen. The sumptuous marble walls of the frameless glass shower could only be matched by the stunning granite countertops and skirt nearby.
A jacuzzi tub stands ready to envelope you in bubbles at the end of a long day, while his-&-hers vanities sit close by. Even the shower is dressed to impress, with a multitude of shower heads and attachments to work out even the hardest knots of stress.
The cabinets too got a makeover, painted a shining white to match the beautiful, thick frames of the mirrors above.
But don’t take our word for it — see for yourself!
Mixing the old with the new is an old architectural trick, but it works wonders in this house — and the family can now enjoy their old spaces in a brand new light.
