Making the Most of a Small Space

Marr Construction teamed with architect Eric Teran, owner of Eustilus Architecture, on a renovation project in NW, Washington. The owners wanted to make the most of a small, irregular-shaped first-floor space by adding seating, storage space and a powder room.

This 1930s Colonial had been renovated several times over the years by prior owners. From a design perspective, this created a challenge for the team: a new design/build needed to meet space and storage requirements as well as blend seamlessly with previous updates to the adjacent kitchen and family rooms. Also, the new bathroom needed to be positioned so that it was not in view from the kitchen.

Teran’s creative design turned the space into a dry bar with seating, decorative glass display shelves and storage spaces including floor to ceiling wood cabinetry that matched the kitchen. The new powder room featured a fun new modern look and pocket door to conserve space. Teran also strategically situated the dry bar so that it received maximum natural light throughout the day as well as took attention away from the powder room. The Marr team is excited about this build! Take a look!
