A client contacted me to totally renovate their kitchen and mudroom. This is a before shot looking from the kitchen doorway towards the mudroom.
The other side of the original kitchen, with the doorway to the dining room on the right.
This is the dining room adjacent to the kitchen. Part of the renovation plan involved removing the wall between the two rooms, and replacing the dining room window with an atrium door..
The finished kitchen, as seen from the dining room with the wall removed. After installing the structural beam, I wrapped it in white oak to give it an antique look.
Looking into the new kitchen towards the mudroom. I removed the linoleum floors and refinished the original subfloors to match the other existing floors in the house. Other work included new appliances, new cabinetry, recessed lighting, and new trim pieces to match the home’s original trim scheme.
Looking into the kitchen from the mudroom doorway. I reframed the original basement stairwell wall and extended it slightly to allow for more wall space for the new oven and vent hood. The clients opted to handle the painting themselves and also installed the tile backsplash.
I installed a new glass door for the basement stairwell that let more natural light into the kitchen from an existing exterior door in the stairwell.
In the original mudroom there had been a small water closet. Part of the renovation included expanding it into a proper powder room. This powder room got new fixtures, cabinetry, lighting, flooring, and a slimline radiator.
The remainder of the mudroom received a new lowboy radiator, rough-sawn floating maple shelves, refinished floors, and a new mudroom bench with a solid maple top.
The new atrium door that replaced the original dining room window allows more natural light into the room as well as access to the backyard. .
One last shot looking into the kitchen from the front room of the house.
