Kitchen 140 Gallery
1970 split foyer home in Vienna, with 10′x 10′ small kitchen, had an addition built about 10 years ago. Behind the kitchen, customer never used the space functionally, so the lifestyle required a much bigger kitchen. She desired a gourmet kitchen that she can do more of their Asian style cooking and be able to entertain more. Lack of the space has been one of her major drags of the old kitchen.
Our design team has suggested to:
Expand the kitchen and utilize the unused space of the existing addition. This involved removal of a bearing brick wall and insert a steel beam header to combine kitchen and existing addition.
Removing front window and replace with one large bay window
Relocate the sink plumbing into that unused space to be under the new bay window
Eliminate side window to allow the L-shape of cabinetry line up and more counter top.
We have to remove the sub floor and shave all floor joists to level the two floors, then lay new wood flooring in old and new space.
Creating an Island with range top and commercial grade Island hood vented through the roof.
Island also included microwave and beverage center and space for three seating .
Smart reuse of siding to patch cavities, adding more insulation on walls and floor and extending duct work for this unheated space made this project an air tight one.
We have widened the doorway from old kitchen into front hall to create better flow all around.
Now we have cabinetry that starts from the front hall with a prep sink area all the way into side addition and wrapping around.
We also incorporate 3 pantries for storage and upper scale appliances for client’s cooking needs
Combined the existing kitchen with existing addition that was rarely used
Removing small window in the front with one large bay window
Contractor achieved client’s total satisfaction with the combining addition, kitchen, and breakfast area to make a larger more functional space with room for a table and sitting island.
