2013 HOBI Award Best Remodeled Kitchen Over $100,000
The scope of this renovation spanned the kitchen, master bathroom, dining room, family room, lighting upgrades and changes to the architecture and structure of the floor plan, all to be completed on a strict timeline. The exterior of the house also received a lift with the installation of new windows, doors, and a few light fixtures. Providing an open floor plan in the most traveled spaces was the goal for this active and growing family of five. The goal was to create accessibility and elegance for both entertainment and traffic, which was accomplished in a few simple and effective ways. A double pocket door was installed to separate the kitchen from the dining and family rooms giving the homeowner the ability to add privacy, or create the open floor plan. This was the most challenging part of the project. Removing 16’ of structural wall was quite an obstacle. The installation of the required flitch plates can also be testing and critical. The outcome of this project was a beautiful kitchen featuring more space than before, a two tiered island, Wolf & Sub Zero appliances, custom built cabinets, a pocket door out to the mudroom and a new window above the sink. Moving into the dining room is a unique, custom and efficient wine closet. Using a five panel clear glass from Trustile doors, the wine closet is always on display and at 3’ x 4’it has all of the features of a standard wine room. This unit is humidity controlled, and the bottles on display can be seen and appreciated while dining, often making it the talking point of the project. Finally, the family room was given a few decorative columns to subtly define the room, and a beautiful wet bar with cabinets for convenience and storage.
