Northampton – Whole House Renovation

|Update home with aging-in-place in mind
This is a single-family home in Spring Branch on the west side of Houston that was built in the 1950s. While some of the features were timeless and the owners wanted to preserve them, others were due for an update, for both aesthetic purposes and functionality for the owners, who are seniors. Working within both parameters, we were able to update the house so that they can enjoy it now and for years to come.
- Although the new pendant lights over the island in the kitchen are striking, the glow on the island countertop is actually from dimmable LED panels under the stone. To achieve the look we had to build a special tray on top of the cabinet that matched the cabinetry. The dimmer switch is hidden under the overhang of the countertop.
- You’ll see one of our favorite additions in the kitchen: a corner cabinet that reaches all the way down to the countertop. This provides extra storage to prevent clutter from accumulating, and also hides an outlet on the inside.
