Anthony + Matthew's Home Remodel
Whole Home Renovation in Portland, OR
Anthony + Matthew's 1913 home has classic features but was ready for a complete remodel tailored to their lives and tastes.
On the main floor, the public rooms were opened up for better flow, and the kitchen was thoroughly remodeled—with generous storage for Matthew's homegrown canned goods. A shared closet between entry hall and guest room is now dedicated to the guest room. A new full-height cabinetry piece at the entry can handle all the coats, hats, and shoes you can throw at it. Upstairs, a poky second bedroom and an awkward tiny bathroom were gutted to make way for a sumptuous primary suite with newly vaulted ceilings. The new bathroom is directly accessible to the primary bedroom but also accessible from the stair hall. It now includes a generous double vanity, a soaking tub, a 2-person shower and a private toilet room.
Main bedroom before + after
Newly vaulted ceilings add light and space to the main bedroom.
To open up the living room to the dining room, an original china cabinet unfortunately had to be removed. But we were able to re-use the leaded glass in the new full-height kitchen cabinet.
Kitchen before + after
The kitchen is primarily Matthew's domain, and he here he has a generous galley at his disposal. French doors access a patio table and the garden.
This home has exceptional original detailing at the ceiling, which we highlighted in warm gray. A retro-pendant adds a touch of quirkiness while keeping it elegant.
