Newtown Kitchen Addition
This homes former early 90s, builder-grade kitchen was confined and impractical for entertaining. It was a far cry from being the heart of the home the clients dreamt about.
With a bit of creativity and a series of design studies it was determined that a small addition off the backside of the house would have a huge impact for the clients day to day living. Gone are the days of having every appliance on the counter thanks to ample storage space. The once separate dining area was combined into the large kitchen island with seating for 6. The rich navy island surrounded by crisp white permitter cabinetry and newly refinished floors create a bright and inviting atmosphere.
Interpreting the clients vision, we designed an open and light filled covered porch, flanked with two large skylights and a custom motorized retractable screen system. The wood plank ceiling anchors the dining area equipped with an outdoor kitchen and TV for game day get togethers. At the touch of a button concealed bug screens can retract down to keep the mosquitos away or a clear vinyl screen can be lowered to keep rain out and the party alive. A new modern cable railing and privacy wall were added to define the lounge area complete with a cozy gas firepit on the other side of the deck.
