Home Tour > Great Room
The Great Room is connected to our Kitchen and I love the open floor plan because it connects us through our daily family conversations as well as preparing and enjoying meals. When we first moved into our home we wanted to add some drama to the ceiling niche.
I went back and forth with different ideas and decided to go with planks that we stained dark to match the wood floors. It turned out great and we get many compliments from friends when they walk into the room. It also helps define this space from the rest of the kitchen.
The fireplace was an upgrade through our builder and I’m happy we did it. Although living in a warm climate most of the year itʼs not necessary. I really desired a traditional mantle that you dress up season to season. I made a few very rough sketches for my contractor and we picked out some inexpensive simple marble tile that was cut down.
It turned out great and we enjoy it every day!
