Work in Progress: Old Metairie Cottage

Old Metairie Cottage Remodel

Transitional Remodel in Old Metairie

DMG is transforming another Old Metairie property. Built in 1998 and located in the Metairie Country Club neighborhood, this beautiful 4,900 sf home was originally built with great bones. By walking the project with the current homeowners and thoroughly listening to their vision, DMG quickly learned that retaining elements of the home’s traditional style was important to them. Together, they developed the goals of updating and elevating specific areas with touches of contemporary and modern design to create a cohesive transitional design aesthetic, all while keeping true to the home’s traditional charm.

The existing double level kitchen island will be removed, along with the custom copper hood from the ceiling. A single level island and range with down draft system will be installed to allow for better site lines through the kitchen. This will also help to maximize the beautiful views the property has to offer. The countertops and backsplashes throughout the kitchen and bar area will be replaced with bright new countertops and updated backsplashes. The three existing fireplaces will be designed to achieve clean lines while still blending with the traditional style. 

The existing dated lighting and plumbing fixtures will be upgraded throughout the home to bring a fresh new feel to every space. The upgraded lighting system will be  controlled via touch screen control 4 systems throughout, but the modern amenities don’t stop there. The home will also feature a custom audio and video system, perfect for entertaining.

On the second floor, two existing bathrooms will be completely gutted and redesigned. The entire interior and exterior will be fully repainted and will include a sack wash to the existing bricks and closed cell spray foam underneath the house.

By paying attention to the updated design details while staying true to the original character of the home, DMG will transform this Old Metairie traditional home into a transitional work of art with subtle expressions of contemporary and modern flare.
