The first floor of this Johns Island home received a complete makeover.

A new great room was created by removing a wall and cased opening that once separated the living space from the kitchen. The new open flow gives the homeowners a great space for entertaining. In the kitchen, upper cabinets were kept to a minimum, while a triple window over the sink and a glass sliding door allow natural light to flood the space. New countertops, backsplash tile and paint help the space feel light and open. The blue base cabinets and center island with quartz countertops are truly a focal point for the room. An adjacent dining area and small bar complete the space.

The homeowners’ unique style is really showcased in their new bathrooms.

In the master bathroom a small, enclosed shower and builder grade finishes were removed. In their place, a new double vanity with white cabinetry and quartz countertops give the homeowners plenty of space to get ready for their day. A beautiful expanded shower features a stunning back wall with blue fish scale tile design.

In the guest bath the black and white octopus wallpaper is the star. It’s complimented by the white tile wall in the shower, black geometric floor tile and a black and white vanity top.

Another interior space that received a much-needed makeover was a small transitional room just off the guest room. Previous owners of the property had added a second floor to the home. To provide access to the new second floor, a set of stairs was added in a downstairs bedroom. The placement of the stairs was awkward and left the room otherwise unusable. We relocated the staircase to the opposite wall, making the first floor room more functional and also providing a better entry point for the second floor. The stairs were finished with cable rail, decorative wall sconces, and a blue accent wall that draws the eye up to the second floor.

A new screened porch on the back of the house connects the indoor and outdoor spaces. Two new skylights allow the natural light to flood the space.
