This home was long due for a new kitchen. The existing kitchen was to small, had limited counter space, and was segregated from the rest of the house. Off the back of the house, next to the kitchen- there was an enclosed porch that wasn’t utilized.
We designed an addition to the kitchen that brought the space from the porch into the interior of the house and expanded the kitchen and an existing bathroom. By pouring a foundation under it and re-building the walls to meet current structural and energy codes, we were able to add onto the house without affecting the existing footprint. We also removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room to open the kitchen to the rest of the floor and added a counter overhang for close seating.
The new kitchen features white shaker cabinets with natural granite counters. Updated appliances include a new Wolf stove and 48″ Frigidaire refrigerator. The hood over the stove is a custom hood built by Columbia cabinets that has a top of the line Vent-A-Hood exhaust fan inside of it. Since there aren’t any wall cabinets nearby for cooking additives, we added a special pullout to the side of the stove for oils and spices.
The existing bathroom was reconfigured and enlarged so it would have more storage and be easier to use. A frameless panel of shower glass makes the room feel spacious and inviting. The white hexagon on the floor, en-caustic looking wall tile and vintage-esque medicine cabinet bring in a twist on mixing the old and new.
