This East Fort Lauderdale ranch built in 1966 had it’s original kitchen, baths and funky 60’s floor plan when it was acquired as an investment project for Restore 818 Inc. The property had some positives and negatives from an Interior Design standpoint.
On the positive side the floor plan was split with the master suite and guest bedrooms separated on opposite sides of the home. That put the focus on opening up the floor plan in the central living areas of the home. The existing pool and decking were dated and in need of significant renovation as well.
Having to creatively design around the unique L-shaped structure of the existing home, Janie made the decision to boldly put the kitchen front and center of the living areas. That meant the usual removal of interior walls in the main areas of the home. But in this unusual situation it also meant closing some exterior doors to create wall-space for the kitchen.
Dark wood floors provide warmth and bright cabinetry accentuate the open concept living areas. In the master bath you’ll notice that Janie re-purposed a vintage Mid-Century Modern dresser to create the one-of-a-kind vanity.
