Historic Bungalow Renovation
Renovations to this 1920s bungalow in the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham required a precise, but light touch in the effort to improve the overall layout while still retaining its humble craftsman architectural character. To this end, the original casings were matched at new openings, cumbersome interior French doors were removed throughout, and the reconfigured kitchen was opened to the original enclosed back porch repurposed as a breakfast room. Painted wood floors, simple inset panels at cabinetry, vertical flush boards, and white subway tile all help give the new areas of this bungalow a quiet sophistication, matched only by the edited interior décor by Betsy Brown.
