First Floor Remodel | Before and After

Welcome to our 56th Street project! I’m excited to walk you through this entire remodel. So, buckle up for some awesome details and a really fun project!


As you come in, we honored the existing house while updating it in a timeless fashion. The original brick tile in the entryway was left untouched, preserving a piece of the home’s history. We then installed beautiful white oak flooring throughout the main floor, which turned out stunningly.

Living Room

The living room had a load-bearing wall that we removed to create an open space. We installed a beam in the ceiling to maintain structural integrity and added walnut beams for a grounding and calming feel. The original built-ins were preserved, and a new gas fireplace was added for efficiency. The white oak flooring seamlessly transitions into the original brick, creating a harmonious blend of old and new.


The kitchen remodel was a major transformation. We removed multiple walls to open up the space while keeping some separation with beams. The refrigerator was moved, and the range stayed in its original spot. We added a beautiful hood that acts as a focal point and defines the kitchen area. The island countertop, made of leathered quartzite, adds a natural and grounding touch. Tons of storage was added with drawer banks and pantries, making this kitchen both functional and beautiful.

Sun Room

The sunroom, originally a screened-in porch, was updated with LVT flooring for durability and new double-hung windows to allow for year-round use. The space feels bright and inviting, perfect for enjoying a warm day.

Powder Bath

In the powder bath, we kept the original vanity, painted it, and added a new countertop and sink. A shiplap accent wall and an original light fixture give this space a charming, updated look.

Primary Suite

The primary suite is a calming retreat. Originally two bedrooms with a hallway and a linen closet, we transformed it into a spacious suite with beautiful French doors leading to an office. The walk-in closet features a unique French door that was repurposed from the living room. The primary bath is now a luxurious space with a large walk-in shower, new tile floor, and a well-thought-out vanity placement that invites natural light.


That wraps up our tour of the 56th Street project. I hope you enjoyed seeing the transformation as much as we enjoyed working on it. Please like this video and subscribe if you found it helpful. Don’t forget to check out our Instagram for more updates and inspiration. See you on the next one!
