Blueprint for Improvement:  Modern living in Zionsville



This 1977 home is in Zionsville’s Colony Woods neighborhood.  The homeowners wanted to update the family room fireplace and surrounding built-ins with a clean, modern style.


  • The built-ins were replaced with floating acrylic laminate cabinetry and custom-made floating poplar shelves. The cabinets are topped with quartz.
  • The fireplace is now the star of the room, covered in a beautiful tile that mimics burnished steel. The firebox was converted from wood-burning to gas.
  • The hearth was designed with a recessed space to accommodate the television.
  • Luxury vinyl flooring provides clean lines and unparalleled durability.
