Our MOSS Building & Design customers purchased their Annandale home many years ago, and while they always loved the set up and layout of the house, they felt that many parts of the house were getting older and required updating. They had specific goals for the remodel, including wanting better functionality and storage in the kitchen, and a fresh and updated look for both their hallway and primary bathrooms.
More Functional Kitchen with Unique Curved Cabinetry
The homeowners had specific goals for their kitchen remodel, including better storage, more food prep areas, wider doorways and openings to and from the space, and a more cohesive look overall. Working with the MOSS design team to re-allocate the space allowed for exactly what our customers wanted. The unique curved cabinetry helps use the space in the corner of the kitchen much more functionally and installing cabinets to the ceiling allows for even more space for storage, including a beloved and well-used spice rack. The cabinets were procured from Hampshire Cabinetry and are painted Nordic White.
The addition of the beverage center allows for more countertop space for a “catch all” spot when the homeowners enter their home, and frees up other countertop space for food and meal prep. The countertop stone throughout the kitchen is pristine polished quartz from EuroStone Craft. The kitchen backsplash, which was added on to the project once it began, is a gorgeous Calacatta Grey Teardrop from Ocean Mosaics. The shape of the teardrop mimics the mullion design on the glass-fronted cabinet doors in the kitchen as well as a trio of mirrors in the main hallway.
Updated Bathrooms Create Calm and Comfort
This project also included the remodeling of the home’s two main level bathrooms. The hallway bathroom had been updated by the previous owner, but the materials used were basic and were showing their age. Our homeowners knew they wanted to keep the tub in there but otherwise the space was updated with a new prefabricated vanity with quartz countertop (purchased by the homeowners themselves), flooring (Atlas Concorde Impression Grey Leaf Mosaic porcelain tile from Mosaic Tile), and wall tile on the bathtub/shower (Atlas Concorde Impression White 3"x12" porcelain tile also from Mosaic Tile).
The primary bathroom was originally awkward in design. Inspired by the tile that was eventually installed as the vertical “waterfall” in the updated shower (“Feathers” marble and glass mosaic from Mosaic Tile), which our homeowners knew they wanted, the idea to flip the location of the double vanity made sense for better flow in the room. Now with semi-custom vanity cabinets from Hampshire Cabinetry, providing plenty of in-bathroom storage, as well as two recessed medicine cabinets, and a heated floor, the bathroom is a calm and cozy oasis for our customers. The shower itself showcases not only the beautiful vertical waterfall effect tile as an accent, but also matte white subway tile on the walls, also from Mosaic Tile. The accent tile in the shower is mimicked on the backsplash of the vanities as well. The glass enclosure for the shower is from Dulles Glass.
Contemporary Stair Railing & Flooring
Another area that our homeowners longed to modernize was the stair railing heading to their basement. It was original to the home, and they wanted a more modern and contemporary look. The stair railing and stairs were re-built and stained to match the flooring on the entire main level of the home (which was also not part of the original scope of the project). The floors are pre-finished hardwood in an oak dark chocolate color from Mullican Flooring and procured from Derr Flooring. The trio of mirrors mentioned earlier are displayed above the stair railing and provide a gorgeous backdrop when entering the home from the front door.
Almost every room on the main level of this Annandale home was touched by our MOSS teams – and, all of our customers' goals were reached and their expectations met. Interested in transforming your home and family’s life as well? Contact MOSS today to schedule your free consultation.
