1975 Mclean home was owned by a middle aged couple wanting a lot more out of their kitchen. Because of their added grand children and visiting relatives, this kitchen has become the grand central of all since the pool and backyard both accessed through the kitchen.
The old kitchen had the main sink facing a blank wall and far from all the other part of the house. Laundry room behind kitchen was small and dysfunctional. The appliances were closely put together with no work space.
Bulkheads and plumbing were all over the place.
We have created a design to relocate the laundry room elsewhere to have better accessibly and more space.
Then we removed the partition wall filled with plumbing to combine space from old laundry room to kitchen. Removed all bulkhead and rerouted the plumbing contains.
Then after we have cut the brick and block back wall and inserted a support steel to have a much large window added to this kitchen. The main sink was placed under this pair of new windows facing the beautiful backyard.
The old shallow closet with its adjacent duct work was reworked and replaced with taller and deeper pantries. This created a lot more storage space.
The new lay out now has the professional range placed in the laundry room location with a mural tile back splash right behind it for more of an accent wall.
All bigger appliances were place on the old kitchen wall and out of sight. A prep sink and second dishwasher was placed on the east wall making the other side of kitchen used during larger gatherings
Main event has been the large Island with seating all around it creating a much better traffic flow, and facing the pool and back deck through new French door.
Larger tile flooring has created a seamless connection, as lighter and taller cabinets rejuvenated this kitchen.
Now they have grandkids running all over with no interruptions. Entertaining inside and out has been a lot simpler with this new layout.
