This bungalow in Austin's Tarrytown neighborhood was purchased when its owners were a young couple. As time went on, they got married and realized they wanted to start a family—which meant their home needed to evolve with their changing lifestyle. Urbane Design was hired to help them maximize their existing space in anticipation of their new baby by remodeling the master bathroom, refreshing the kitchen, rebuilding the deck and screened-in porch and designing a nursery.

Interior and exterior specification and installation
Together with the client, we chose designs that were refined, traditional and simple. Our goal was to create a thoughtful space within the home's existing footprint that allowed for easy flow of traffic and entertaining guests while bringing a sense of ease to their everyday lives—which were about to change dramatically with their first child.
The master bathroom was one of the most underutilized rooms in the home, with a large closet taking up unused space. We eliminated this closet and expanded the bathroom while converting their bathtub to an oversized walk-in shower. Additionally, we redesigned the vanity area to include built-in storage that maximizes its use. The result of this redesign was a larger, more functional bathroom that can serve as a personal place of relaxation for new parents at the end of a long day.
Our nursery design was simple and feminine with white walls and pink accents coming through in curtains, framed art and a woven pouf. We incorporated just enough storage in the room to keep the baby's toys and clothes organized without taking up too much space. The room was designed to be versatile and minimal so it can grow with the family.
The Tarrytown Remodel was an exercise in making the most of a small space by thinking critically about functionality and its marriage with simple aesthetics.
