The scope of this renovation spanned the kitchen, dining room, family room, mudroom, lighting upgrades, and changes to the architecture and structure of the floor plan. Providing an open floor plan in the most traveled spaces was the goal for this active and growing family of five. The objective was to create accessibility and elegance that would accommodate entertainment and traffic.
After removing a 16’ section of structural wall a double pocket door from TruStile was installed to separate the kitchen from the dining and family rooms giving the homeowner the ability to add privacy, or enjoy the now open floor plan.
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. The mudroom that is directly off the kitchen received cubbies for storage upon entry into the house
Moving into the dining room is a unique, custom and efficient wine closet. The location was chosen for easy access. Using a 5 panel clear glass from Trustile doors, the wine closet is always on display. At 3’ x 4’ it has all of the features of a standard wine room. The wine pegs were individually purchased and installed into the redwood racking system that has peg and lower shelf/cabinet storage. 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.
