Like a lot of our clients in San Francisco, Ethan and Ashley wanted to rejuvenate their existing Edwardian. With a focus on the kitchen and bathroom areas, we created a much brighter space with a refreshed color palette and a more open floor-plan.
The LOCZIdesign team overhauled their once sparse kitchen to create a large, light-filled space with plenty of storage. Removing the existing laundry closet and relocating it to an old storage pantry, opened up the space completely.
Kitchen AFTER and BEFORE
Floor plan we offered Ethan and Ashley to open up the kitchen space.
To further envision the finished product, the team offered different style guides to consider directions for a fresh color palette including options for backsplash tile, lighting, various appliance finishes and flooring. Ethan and Ashley opted to go with a combination of two style guides, blending the white and teal elements one one style guide with some of the stainless steel and lighting elements from another.
The finished design includes white, Shaker style cabinets topped with Caesarstone countertops in Emperadoro. The team gave them all new stainless steel appliances, beautiful "Half Baked" backsplash tile in teal and new ceramic floor tiles in terra cotta.
Optimizing space, at one far end of the kitchen the team created a breakfast nook. A custom trestle table was designed and built to fit the nook perfectly, providing a space for leisurely morning coffee and reading in an area that was previously underutilized.
The custom-made banquette cabinet includes storage drawers and bench seating for which custom cushions were designed to add support and comfort.
Moving onto the bathroom area, the design team refreshed the current powder room with new tile and fixtures and updated their existing bathroom with an additional commode to create a master bathroom complete with a large walk in shower and free-standing tub. Check out the new & improved floor plan for the combined master bath & powder room below.
The Walker Zanger "cocoon" tiles in sky blue create a calm and dynamic visual texture to the shower walls.
The white Carrara Marble floor tiles were set in a herringbone pattern.
To maintain some of the antiqued elements in the home the team kept the gorgeous door knobs in tact.

From storage closet to powder room...
Finally, where there was once a storage closet located under the stairs, the team created a new additional powder room featuring new tile, fixtures and paint. Powder rooms can be fun and dynamic spaces. It's the perfect spot to take some risks where you can "wow" your house guests.
A deep blue paint was used on all the walls and ceiling. Sherman Williams "Outerspace" SW6251. The floors are another big pop - porcelain hexagon tile with a Highland Heritage pattern. The Kohler fixtures in "Vibrant Brushed Gold" add the bling the room needed.
See the style guide below created for the powder room to help our clients envision the new space followed by images of the final design.
Most importantly, the clients are thrilled with the transformation! Our re-imagining of this San Francisco Edwardian was very rewarding, a true gem transformed.
