Kitchens and bathrooms can be polarizing in the homeowner’s realm. They’re the first rooms to be loved or hated, and sales have been made and lost solely on the basis of their design. Hatfield Builders & Remodelers’ (HBR) work on the kitchen and master bathroom of a house in Plano, Texas, shows exactly how a tailor-made remodel can bring the best out in a room and showcase the sensibilities of its inhabitants.
Chief among the owners’ wishes for the kitchen was “a place that allowed them to host both larger parties and family gatherings in a clean, open, and modern setting.” Ample seating and an open plan that extends into the great room ensures their ability to do so, and a fireplace updated with large limestone slabs caps off the space opposite the clean look of the kitchen’s custom cabinetry.
The theme of slick surfaces paired with bold, visual textures continues into the master bathroom, where customization takes the shape of rift-cut white oak, a steam shower, and a total of seven speakers built into the structure of the room. And if there ever was anything that echoes the sentiment of ownership and nesting in a home, it’s a steam shower with a pair of built-in speakers.
Hatfield Builders & Remodelers used the old hallway behind this kitchen to craft a large walk-in pantry and a butler's pantry, resulting in vast walking and working spaces throughout.
