The interior design and decor of this 1950s bungalow had never been updated, and desperately needed to be brought up to modern standards.
The bungalow consisted of a central hallway with all rooms running off of it. There was no open space, all rooms were closed off from each other and the interior of this bungalow was rather dark.
This interior design project required me to do the following:
- design more of an open concept design for the kitchen, dining, and living room area of the home by opening up the main floor space. To do this 3 walls were torn down between hall, front bedroom, and existing kitchen. I eliminated the front bedroom to increase the space needed for the kitchen. Sacrificing the third bedroom was worth it in my opinion. The 8’x12′ space of the existing kitchen was simply not large enough, especially when it was an eat in kitchen with no other dining space in the house. The front of the house went from dreary to being filled with light once the design became more of an open concept.
- design and draft an electrical plan for the new kitchen
- design and draft a lighting plan for the new kitchen
- design a furniture layout for living room, dining, and bedroom areas of the home
- source and coordinate flooring, fabrics, furniture, accessories, artwork, wall paper, tiles, counter tops, plumbing fixtures, appliances, lighting, drapery, blinds, bedding, toss pillows.
- Create a color scheme
