In this small space makeover, designer Meghan Carter transforms a dingy main floor into a light-filled, functional space fit for an active family of four. See how she used modern and industrial details to create a look that’s both urban and youthful.
Meghan began by swapping out the front door for one that’s two-thirds glass, and painted the entire main floor white to perk up the space. The small foyer lacked storage, so she added closets, and refinished the floors in marble herringbone tile to add personality. In the living room, she revamped the existing brick fireplace with a sleek, simple design and marble detail. Meghan removed the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room to create one large, open-concept room. A ten-foot island takes center stage in the eat-in kitchen, while a sputnik-style light fixture above the dining table adds graphic punch.
