House Tour | Spazio LA
Spazio LA has done it again! The Los Angeles based design and build firm takes us inside one of their recent home renovations in sunny Studio City, California. And they sure put this small space to work! With just 1,000 square feet to work with, Spazio LA transformed what once was a cramped and lackluster house from head to toe–or should we say, from roof to floors. The key? Creating a new floor plan that would open the kitchen, dining room and living room up and give the illusion of additional space.
Spazio LA wanted the final look to be open and bright, so they used white throughout the house, both inside and out, to give the home a fresh and modern feel. We love the streamlined shape of the exterior architecture and the modern elements used to enhance the clean lines, creating a cohesive look.
As we enter the home, our eyes are immediately drawn to the Frosty Carrina countertops–most notably the waterfall edges on both the island and perimeter.
Coupling the countertops with a marble chevron tile backsplash, it’s safe to say Spazio LA knows how to put the “fun” in funky.
Spazio LA went with shaker style cabinets in white for their clean, straightforward lines. Shaker cabinets are a great option for their timeless simplicity. And because they aren’t necessarily wholly traditional or contemporary, they work in all different kinds of interiors.
The space features all new black aluminum windows and French doors, original floors restained with a light grey color and all new recessed lights.
Design Tip: in an open concept space such as this, area rugs are a great way to define spaces, indicating where one destination (the dining room) stops and another (the kitchen and/or living room) begins.
The floor plan also opens up to the living room, featuring a new electric fireplace with concrete-looking Venetian plaster on the wall with recessed TV and in-wall speakers.
The bathroom is a modern, minimalist dream and might just be our favorite space in the house. Gutted entirely, a standalone sink was ditched in favor of a sleek, flat panel glossy white double vanity. Adoring the vanity is a Caesarstone quartz waterfall counter in Pure White, coupled with a drop-in tub with watching Pure White surfacing. By keeping the shower frameless, Spazio LA kept the bathroom from feeling confined.
The wall-mount toilet also contributes to the spacious feel of the room, and fits perfectly with the modern and sleek aesthetic that characterizes this renovation.
Well done, Spazio LA. Well done.
