Project Spotlight: The 1st floor of this 1940’s traditional 2-story Colonial home in Upper Arlington, OH was transformed into an expansive bright, open concept fresh interior. Tight spaces were opened up allowing natural light to flow from the front thru the back of the home.

Existing Floorplan – Main living spaces on 1st floor all separated by too many walls with narrow openings.
Proposed Floorplan – Main living spaces are all opened up to one another allowing for better flow, function and views.

  • Paint 1st floor walls and trim
  • Refinish all existing hardwood and add new hardwood to foyer and where walls were removed
