This eclectic Ballard home raises the bar on style while remaining true to the family's busy lifestyle and flair for fun. The goals of the kitchen remodel were to improve flow while creating space to entertain. Open shelving means there is a place for everything, but nothing is far from the chef's reach. A sunny dining area with built-in bench seating invites good times and serves as the hub for homework and home-cooked meals. Downstairs, a spacious new master bedroom and bath are a retreat for Mom and Dad, while a new family room sets the stage for movie and game nights.
