The homeowners on this project didn’t want to move, but they did need more space to accomplish their dream home. They are a close knit family and enjoy spending time together in the kitchen cooling their meals as well as sitting down as a family to eat together. Their kitchen was quite cramped and did not function well for their lifestyle.
The family also desired more living space with a great room feel. We removed the wall between the existing dining room and kitchen, the exterior wall to the back yard, as well as the screen porch. We then added a 16’x26′ great room addition featuring a wall of beautiful Marvin Windows capturing a panoramic view of the beautiful backyard along with a complete kitchen makeover to accomplish the lifestyle this family enjoys. The new kitchen and addition have transformed this home into a more open easy flowing space that visually and functionally connect with the existing home. Hardwood floors throughout tie the existing living room and dining room together with the new kitchen and great room addition.
Mitch and Linda wanted the new kitchen to be open and to make a statement. The multi-functional peninsula is large enough for guests to comfortably gather around and for casual family meals. The new quarter sawn oak cabinetry – mixing traditional mission style with the clean lines of contemporary styling – are beautifully complimented by granite countertops, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and new hardwood floors. This kitchen and great room have become the heart of their home.
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. 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 kitchen and the new addition through the utilization of recessed, special, and indirect lighting. The homeowners’ decorating and accessorizing create a warm and cozy setting.
