In the true spirit of Spring, we wanted to spotlight this bright and invigorating family kitchen!
Before the renovation, the family was limited by their 100 sq. ft. galley kitchen’s lack of overall space and storage. They wanted to create a family-friendly kitchen, conducive to socialization, with a focus on functionality. The first step to meeting these goals was to expand the current square footage. Behind the galley kitchen was an unused 2-car garage, which our clients’ chose to incorporate into the new design.
To create a space that truly satisfied the client’s needs, we chose to create a family room adjacent to the kitchen. This maximized the functionality and flow of the space, as well as promoted socialization. In addition to the new family room, a new mudroom was constructed as a welcoming sight to guests.
Welcome to the new family kitchen! The renovated design brings the total square footage to 224 feet, which is plenty of room for our clients. To help the illusion of a larger space, we utilized light finishes wherever possible. To ensure a cohesive design original kitchen and breakfast room’s tile floor and replaced it with hardwood that matched the existing dining room.
The cabinetry and custom island use contemporary recessed doors with crown molding. The custom island creates a perfect central hub for daily life, as well as an eye-popping centerpiece in the kitchen. The countertops are resilient quartz, the perfect low maintenance option for any kitchen.
To create a more contemporary design, we stepped away from your average subway tile and opted for a unique herringbone pattern. In the same contemporary style, our client chose stainless steel accents, from the over island pendants, to cabinetry hardware, to the farmhouse sink!
In the new adjacent family room, family and guests are provided with every cozy amenity. The serene color scheme is pulled through from the custom Arhaus sectional, to the bluestone topped coffee table, even down to the houndstooth Plazza chair. The space additionally contains a desk nook, secluded enough for privacy and homework, but close enough to be part of the action in the room.
The finishing touch in the home renovation is the new rustically designed mudroom. The design incorporates the stone from the original side of the home with dark barn doors and a custom built bench. To keep things clean and tidy, space underneath the bench doubles as storage. The tile floor gives the illusion of industrial poured concrete but is actually durable and easy to care for porcelain tile.
