Northwest Contemporary Farmhouse
– Corvallis, OR –
This whole house remodel completely transformed a 90’s house to a contemporary farmhouse style. With their family growing up and their lifestyle changing, this client was looking for their home to have a cozier feel. The existing downstairs was large, but the kitchen space felt almost too expansive. The bathroom was dark and the laundry room lacked polish. Without removing or adding a single wall, we were able to make the whole home feel warmer, softer, and more suitable for the homeowner’s needs.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
A big change throughout the home was the addition of white shiplap on some walls and ceilings. The addition of this textural element helped the expansive spaces to feel more inviting and down to earth. The outdated oak built-ins in the living room were replaced with more functional painted white built-ins, which included a combination of open shelving, cupboards, and drawers to provide a variety of storage types. The fireplace was transformed from a rarely used fixture to a focal point of the living room, while still blending seamlessly into the space around it. An archway was added to connect the hallway to the living room, adding a homey touch.
The bathroom was another main point of change. The existing bathroom was a plain, poorly lit hallways bathroom. This homeowner hoped to transform it into a more serene, everyday use bathroom. By keeping the colors light and bright, we were able to build a space that felt bigger and more usable. The wallpaper served the same function as the shiplap, adding visual interest and texture and helping keep everything contained. Tall blue wainscoting finishes off the look.

The kitchen posed another challenge – though there was lots of counter space and storage, the space was broken up, and didn’t feel as usable as such a large kitchen should have. We removed a rarely used peninsula and large island and replaced them with a large, statement island that filled the space better without breaking up the work area. Though the appliances and sink remained in their existing locations, the new white cabinets and textured tile backsplash helped everything feel clean, new, and bright.
The laundry room departs from the white of the rest of the home to provide a colorful yet calm entrance to the home from the garage. It’s a cozy and visually interesting space to get things done. The white countertops and shaker style cabinets tie it to the rest of the home. Though the walls didn’t move, this remodel was so much more than just a simple face lift. From new custom cabinets to a beautiful tile shower to wall and ceiling details, this home was truly transformed into an oasis in which to start a new chapter of life.
