THREE WAYS TO ADD ARCHITECTURAL DETAIL TO A SPACE - PROJECT SHAKE FRONT

THREE WAYS TO ADD ARCHITECTURAL DETAIL TO A SPACE - PROJECT SHAKE FRONT

The construction dust is all cleaned up at the Shake Front Project, and it is looking mighty fine! This project is a semi-custom, residential new build where we tested the limits and elevated the home by incorporating lot's of customized extras.

Go here to see more of the design phase and back story of the kitchen design. Essentially the clients wanted some architectural definition between the kitchen, great room and dining nook. So with their vision we set off to do just that, and in the end, all the problem solving paid off!

ARCHITECTURAL & CABINET FEATURES

  • Columns / Pilasters
  • Beamed Ceiling
  • Leaded Glass Accent Cabinets

THE TAKE AWAY

  • Consider adding architectural features and elements to open floor plans, like we did in this space to add delineation and definition between spaces, while still keeping on open feel.
  • When adding architectural features pay close attention to the architecture of the house, and stay true to it. For instance with this project, the features we added we're architecturally appropriate for a modern craftsman...tapered columns, beam ceiling and even the motif on the leaded-glass accent cabinets.
  • When incorporating columns in a space, try to make them look believable...like they are structural even if they aren't really load-bearing.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Good question! In the next post for the Shake Front Projects, I'll be sharing the design boards for the furniture and accessory selections for the kitchen and nook.

Love the space your in!
