Manhattan Beach Home Redesigned

A young family transforms their newly purchased house into a bright, spacious home.

This young family loved living in a beach community not far from the water.  Their 1970s house, however, with its small rooms and dreary colors, wasn’t functional or cheery, especially the kitchen.


Their solution was to create a new floor plan with an expanded kitchen, increased storage and counter space, and greater flow among the key rooms: the kitchen, dining room and family room.


The redesign opened the kitchen and dining room areas, providing the space for a beautiful island to become the centerpiece of the house.  Adorned with crystal pendants, quartz stone and stylish counter seats, it conveyed an elegant yet family-friendly tone.  A large focal window in the kitchen provided much-needed light.  Storage was created by converting a 70s-style bar into a pantry.


In the adjacent family room, a contemporary fireplace replaced an outdated brick mantel, with matching bookcases on either side. The television, mounted above the fireplace, centered the room for entertainment.  A large cozy sectional sofa was the final addition.
