New stairway is key to modern foyer remodel.

Few things can date a foyer more than a dated staircase. For this young couple, updating the stairway of their 2-story 80's home was to be a crucial part of updating the feel of their home from the moment you cross the threshold. They started out with this boxed in stairway with traditional bannister. We used the rendering to refine the plan with our client and contractor.

The goal was to open the staircase, add a modern vibe and feature the volume ceiling of the entry foyer and adjacent living room. Though the overall color palette for the remodel was in cool grays, punches of color were planned to add life to the project. The new entry door and pendant as well as new distressed flooring would complete the foyer remodel.
