The homeowners on this project didn’t want to move, but they did need more space to accomplish their dream home. A complete kitchen makeover and 450 square foot great room addition, with full lower level beneath it were added to this ’70’s two level home greatly enhancing their living space.
Since outdoor living is a key component to their lifestyle, it was crucial to integrate outdoor living space with their new addition. To accomplish this, we added a maintenance free deck. A finishing touch to their surroundings was a complete redesign of their yard.
Mike and Karen wanted the new kitchen to be open and to make a statement. The large multifunctional island is the heart of this gourmet kitchen and it’s large enough for guests to gather around. Granite countertops and stat- of-the-art stainless appliances beautifully compliment the new maple cabinetry and oak hardwood floors.
They wanted the addition to be designed in such a way as to lend itself to be used very comfortably for intimate family gatherings as well as entertaining large groups. Elements of the design provide a visual cohesiveness and add a more open feeling to this home. Lighting has been designed for both function and ambiance complimenting the room and its use,through the utilization of recessed, special, and indirect lighting. The wall of windows creates a warm and cozy setting.
This room is a treasured refuge for this family. The new gas fireplace adds ambiance and warmth while watching a Minnesota winter snowstorm. A wonderful environment with abundant natural light is created with the large south and west window walls, bathing the room with sunlight.
The home owners are now able to move from their addition onto a maintenance free deck where they can relax in the hot tub and enjoy the beautifully landscaped yard.
