A Contemporary Upgrade Built Around Family & Entertaining

Since purchasing this traditional New England style home in 2010, Kris C. and her husband dreamed of a renovation that would better fit their modern style and their family’s active lifestyle. Bringing this vision to reality was the ABRN teams’ goal for the transformation. 


The project featured a complete redesign of the first-floor interior by creating an open floor plan with a stunning floating staircase, a large eat-in kitchen that included an oversized island, quartz countertops, custom walnut cabinetry with push-touch hardware and high-end appliances. Perfect for preparing meals, family gatherings, and entertaining, the thoughtful design even hints at space separation for a more formal dining and seating area, while keeping the space completely open.  


Renovations in the family room included adding an a-symmetrical fireplace wall with a stunning two-sided fireplace. Large windows strategically placed allow light to flood the space, maximizing natural lighting throughout the day. High-end touches such as the back-painted backsplash, Italian porcelain floors, and custom Lutron lighting add to the modern aesthetic, while features like radiant floor heating add comfort and efficiency.

We were honored to help Kris and her family bring their home renovation dreams to life and are excited to hear they are already thinking about a second-story overhaul in the same contemporary style.
