Remodel Spotlight: LREA Awards 1st Place

separator

The 6th Annual Louisiana Remodeling Excellence Awards announced its winners last month and we were honored to have been a part of these first-place projects.

We partnered with our friends at Big River Construction to complete both of these beautiful spaces: “Bocage Bath Beauty,” which was awarded first place bathroom remodel over $20,000, and “A Bright, Open Space,” which won first place kitchen remodel over $50,000.

Since these awards accept submissions from all over Louisiana, we were pretty excited when we got the news. While our Remodel Spotlight series usually focuses on one project at a time, we thought we’d welcome the spirit of 2020 and celebrate these awards with a two-in-one article focusing on both spaces.

Before remodeling, this client’s home had walls separating the kitchen from the adjacent living and dining rooms. These made the space feel dark and closed off despite all the natural light. Our goal was to open the space up and make it more functional for the clients.

We widened the doorway between the kitchen and the dining room and removed the upper cabinets on the side facing the living room. We were able to keep the separation of the spaces through the use of wooden beams and casings which brought much-needed warmth and set the stage as you moved from one space to another.

Located in a beautiful home in Bocage, this exquisite master bathroom was in need of rejuvenation. Before the renovation, this space was divided and disconnected. The bathroom, coming off a common vestibule area, was separated. His and her vanities, the bathtub, and the shower were located in two different rooms.

We joined the two rooms into one luxurious bathroom for both clients to enjoy. The shower provides not only an ordinary showerhead, but a handheld sprayer, a rain head, and body sprayers lined with sleek white marble as well as the bathtub which provided both a faucet and handheld option. What more could you ask for?

The decor was elegant and simple with matte gold accents from the light fixtures, chandelier, and vanity chair. The marble floors and countertops also added to the sleek and polished look of this space. The simplicity and modernity of this room provided the clients with a lavish space to relax and enjoy.
