1512 Bennett Home Design Plan
STAGING FOR LIVING HOME DESIGN PLAN
1512 Bennett Ave, Glenwood Springs, CO
Overview: The goal of the design recommendations given is to utilize existing furnishings, add key pieces, and make improvements that will update the home.
- Paint walls other than the kitchen, guest bedroom, upstairs bathroom, and basement 4004-1A Valspar Tempered Gray.
- Touch-up paint trim, ceiling, and doors, keeping them white.
- Add vinyl flooring throughout. Product TBD.
- Lighten the exposed beam upstairs to update the space.
- Apply wall paint with a Brushed Pearl (Valspar) or similar finish.
- Replace the window treatment with a light-colored, double width (100”wide) and tall (96” high) single panel drapery with a rod pocket. Mount the rod without a center bracket and pull the drapery to the fireplace side when open so as not to crowd the front door.
- Place a TV above the mantel.
- Place the rug parallel to the fireplace hearth.
- Add a coffee table. The small round table could be cut down to 18-20” high to serve this purpose.
- Add a side table between the end of the sofa and the front door. A decorative pet crate could double as an end table somewhere in the room.
- Add a floor or table lamp next to the sofa.
- Add textural décor above the sofa.
- Place the upholstered chair and ottoman with the antique green side table to the right of the fireplace.
- Add a table lamp on the green side table.
- Add a throw and decorative pillows on the sofa.
- Add 3-4 bar stools to create a dining area at the peninsula.
- Consider adding runner rugs to soften the steps.
- The sconce at the upstairs landing could be replaced for an updated look.
- Frame out and finish the wall bordering the basement stairs and add a railing or stair edge to give the stairs a finished look.
- Move the sofa closer to the door and place the desk along the back wall.
- Add a full-height drapery across the windows and door to make the room private and cozy.
- Remove the TV mount.
- Add a tall storage piece in its place.
- Add a queen bed and headboard.
- The small side tables that were beside the master bed at the RRF house would look nice as side tables.
- Add a pair of matching lamps on either side of the headboard.
- Add drapes and a rod hung to extend 14” on either side of the window and to the ceiling.
- Install a closet system to maximize the usefulness of the closet.
- Add cabinets along the back wall facing the stairs for storage.
- Take down the shelving from the side wall.
- Move the baker's rack opposite the sofa to use for the TV and storage.
- For now, a wall shelf for storage, an area rug, and a ceiling mount drapery rod to use for hanging clothes could be added.
- Insulate and drywall.
- Add cabinetry as it fits once dry-walled.
