Open floor plans are on many families’ dream home list, and this family was no exception. The only problem? A support beam that fell directly in the middle of their best laid plans. The incredible team at Lynden Lane stepped in and helped reconfigure the house, remove the beam, and bring a sense of warmth to this newly remodeled family home. See how their dream home turned out in the photos below.
From the designer… When we started this project the client really wanted to keep the single story California Casual feeling, but we need to open the walls and change the location of the kitchen. A welcoming and open space that still feels elevated was our main objective and this house lent itself beautifully to that idea. Keeping a similar footprint, but utilizing it in a more effective way allowed the design to become even more elevated at the finish.
Creating a true entertaining kitchen where their family and guests could all enjoy the space at one time was the most important part of the project. The biggest challenge was a support beam that fell directly center of the new island plans. It was a significant increase in the budget to remove the support beam, but in order to create a truly open concept the beam had to go! Although it extended the project, it really brought the space to life and the client was really happy with the outcome.
