Designer Kurt Knapstein energizes a dated Sunset Hill Tudor with a fresh new look

February 2015

“The location was great. The bones of the house were good. But the tipping points in a Kansas City interior designer’s decision were really special. “As soon as I walked in the door and saw the spiral staircase, I was intrigued,” says Kurt Knapstein of his Sunset Hill Tudor. “When I saw the barrel-vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom, that was the clincher.”

Making the move from his polished Plaza-area condo to a three-bedroom, two-story home required a year-and-a-half of remodeling and redesigning. “One of the challenges of renovating an older home is repurposing the spaces for changing lifestyles,” he says. The home had not been updated in 50 years. “It needed a facelift.”
