As the first home of our newlywed clients, the Burney Remodel needed to endure the test of time from both a style and a durability standpoint. The kitchen is one of the most-used rooms in the home for these frequent cooks, so a functional kitchen was a big priority. Urbane Design was hired to remodel the entire home and breathe new life into this 1970s structure.

Our clients are drawn to clean, geometric shapes, crisp, bright colors and classic details such as brushed nickel and stainless steel. Throughout the kitchen, we chose white cabinets with stainless steel pulls. The backsplash is made from a beautiful 3D porcelain tile, which adds texture to the kitchen. Our clients love to entertain, so we built a beautiful bar overhang that is perfect for casual conversation while dinner is being prepared.

The mud room is a departure from the rest of the home’s crisp, white scheme. We brought the drama with deep, blue paint and a stacked, charcoal washer and dryer. This room serves as a seamless transition from outdoor to indoor and adds an element of surprise to the home.

In the master bath, we installed a large rectangular soaker tub with crisp edges and a modern, brushed nickel fixtures. The walk-in shower was built for comfort and includes recessed niches, a built-in bench, and multi-use brushed nickel showerheads. It was designed to be a calming space to begin or end a busy day.

Almost every square foot of the Burney home was touched by Urbane Design. The result is a functional, cozy nesting place for a young couple to grow their lives together with family and friends.
