Many of you have been following along on the Riverbend project through Instagram. I love seeing your reactions and enthusiasm through comments and DMs! In this post I’ve gathered all the progress shots of the Riverbend project to show what has changed in the past months. If you want to get a better idea of how big the changes have been, you can see the before post here!
Tender Love and Care
This home definitely had a lot of potential (it really needed some TLC). We wanted the home to be more functional so updating the floor plan was a top priority. We also were looking to make lots of cosmetic updates. Those included replacing all the tile and old grey carpet with beautiful engineered wood flooring, and of course taking out over 5 decorative columns! The home needed an update to the outdated electrical and plumbing. With all these changes in store, we tore most of the spaces down to the studs.
After all the tear down, the crew started taking out unnecessary walls and adding in new ones based on the updated floor plan. Walking through the space with just the studs up and flooring removed we were getting so excited for how much open and functional space we were able to add to the home! The biggest changes were visible in the kitchen and primary suite bathroom. Once the sheetrock was up, the interior of the Riverbend home was visibly transformed!
Let the fun begin!
The fun part has started! I loved seeing the gorgeous flooring installed! The tone of the wood brought so much warmth to the space, especially when paired with freshly painted white walls! In the Primary Suite we used a combination of three different tiles. All three had tones of grey or white within them. Some darker with white veining, which we applied to the shower walls. We pulled in the whiter and light grey tones in both the mini hex tile on the shower floor and the large-scale rectangular tiles on the rest of the floor.

We were anxiously awaiting a phone call that would let us know our custom cabinets were finished and ready for install! Once we got the call, we were back on site to watch those beauties go in! For this project we went with a modern cabinet style but used a rustic white oak to add character to the cabinets through the knots and wood grain. We couldn’t capture the floors in the updated shots because they were being protected but believe me the custom cabinet stain complimented the floors perfectly! We used the same cabinet style and finish for the mudroom, and both bathrooms. With white walls and grey tiles, the rustic oak cabinets added the perfect warmth to all of the spaces!
The last update I was able to capture was the quartz countertop install! The quartz slab we went with was primarily white with grey veining throughout. We chose a modern straight edge for the countertops, which paired with the modern cabinets beautifully! The quartz was also added to the bench and niche ledge in the walk-in shower. Here the white veining in the grey tile on the walls was a sight to see once the white quartz with grey veining was in.
There is one more update that we haven’t shared with you yet! There’s going to be another wow factor added in the Kitchen! I know, it already looks SO good but just wait until you see it all put together. Stay tuned for the final reveal!
