This beautiful remodel was actually done inside a private company suite at the Palace of Auburn Hills. This suite went from year 1983 to 2009 quickly by updating everything from cabinetry, counter tops, flooring and furniture accents.
Although the blinds are drawn in the photo below, the Pistons were actually practicing that day I measured the space out. It helped with the design concept; knowing the main attraction of this room is what will happen through the glass. A great 'suite' is one that flows nicely and works like your own personal restaurant/bar but with the warmth of home.
If you look closely, you can see the client added their own touch by attaching an cool metal plate, labeled "trash" indicating where the pullout is. Love the personal additions.
In any space, having a new kitchen and powder bath to make family and guests alike feel at home is more than necessary...it's 'suite.'
