1950s Ranch Remodel
Before and After

Contemporary Classic Sunnyvale, Santa Clara

The Project – The Sunnyvale Showstopper

This 1955 suburban ranch was long in need of a major renovation when our clients bought it as a rental property to live in, while their forever home located across the street underwent an extensive remodel. The smaller remodel would enable the clients to experiment with finishes and features they were considering for their forever home renovation. The primary remodeling goals were to improve flow, create open spaces for entertaining and update the infrastructure.

The Concept – Unlocking a Home’s Potential

With the structural wall removed, the team expanded the Kitchen footprint by 60 square feet and used the space of the former Dining Room. The new skylight and lighting plan wash the Kitchen in light. Marble-like quartz countertops surround the perimeter, and a floral tile backsplash adds a pop of style at the cooktop. For a modern take on classic Shaker style, the base cabinets were painted a deep charcoal to contrast with the light gray cabinets above. Incorporating the terracotta hex tile, rubbed gold fixtures, and textured window covering add warmth and a sense of patina to the guest bathroom. The hall closet furnace was relocated, allowing the primary bath shower footprint to expand by 30” and increase the comfort in the space.
