We recently completed a beautiful renovation project in Bloomington where we gave this 1980’s traditional-styled home a modern updated look.  We partnered with Retreat Design Build Renovate to help make the homeowners vision a reality. The project highlights consist of a new designer kitchen and garage addition along with renovating the entire main floor.  New smooth ceilings, enameled cabinetry and millwork, along with some custom stained finishes are just a few elements that played into the new modern design.






One way to achieve a more modern design in an otherwise traditional home is to utilize a combination of enamel (modern polished look) and stain (traditional look).  There are other benefits to using enamel as well.  Enamel is highly durable, washable, and waterproof which makes it ideal for areas of the home that are typically exposed to dirt and stains.  The custom stained hood above the range and tile backsplash give this space a beautiful focal point.



Products Used:  Sherwin Williams Oil-based Enamel in White Dove with a Satin finish.

The stain used on the hood and center island is a custom match stain by Sherwin Williams.
