Actor William Shatner, Star Trek’s original Captain James T. Kirk, and his wife Liz are taking on a brand new project – transforming their '80s home into a gorgeous Mediterranean dream.
Before the renovation, the patio area was overgrown and in need of some TLC.
After the renovation, the once-open patio is enclosed with stunning French doors. Sconces by the main doorway add an inviting touch to the home's entrance.
Originally, the home's foyer was awkwardly placed and seemed small and plain in the Shatner's spacious home.
A quaint powder room made better use of the small space and was a convenient addition to the home's makeover. Because the Shatners try to reuse materials whenever possible, the home's old entry doors now serve as the powder room doors.
Dark accessories, a large dining table and chandelier make the dining room feel smaller.
Now, a round table with light chairs and updated lighting give the room a fresh look. By knocking out one wall and adding a small bar instead of the buffet table, the entire home feels more open.
The heavy window treatment gave the dining room a very dark, traditional vibe.
With the window treatment removed, more natural light floods the space, while the arc of the window adds to the home's Mediterranean style.
Large kitchen windows and charming ceiling beams prove that the Shatner's kitchen already had great bones. But the dark floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and outdated backsplash simply had to go.
Adding new appliances, removing the wall of cabinets, and brightening up the space with a new paint job transform the kitchen into a more modern, cheery space.
Two islands broke the kitchen up, making the room feel choppy and as if it was really two space fighting against one another.
Now, one large island brings the front and back of the kitchen together, making the room a more useful place to prep meals and entertain guests.
On top of the fact that the wall of cabinetry was too dark and outdated for the kitchen, the Shatners were searching for a way to give the kitchen a more open look.
By tearing down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room, the entire space feels more open and modern. To add a bit of drama to the space, a stunning custom light fixture was added above the island.
A lovely mantel fixture, interesting ceiling detail and gorgeous white walls were the perfect jumping off point for the living room makeover.
Jaw-dropping light fixtures and a stone fireplace bring a more Mediterranean feel to the spacious living room.
While the furniture is nice, it doesn't seem to fit the space. The living room lacks warmth and is in need of a style update.
Hardwood floors mimic the ceiling design and make the greenery around the room really pop. A neutral, patterned area rug is a cozy touch that pulls the room together.
Actor William Shatner, recognizable to television fans as Star Trek’s original Captain James T. Kirk, has a new leading role: project manager of his own home remodel.
