Kitchen-breakfast Room Addition

The project consisted of a new kitchen and adjoining breakfast room that replaced an earlier kitchen with limited counter, storage and eating space. The new kitchen was moved outward toward the rear yard and a breakfast area replaced the earlier kitchen space. Counters and cabinets were installed on all sides of the room with full-height wall cabinets on two walls and windows facing the street, the yard and the deck. A large island in the center of the kitchen serves as both the cooking area and as an additional seating-eating area. New maple flooring was used to extend the existing maple flooring of the original kitchen. A mud room at the rear entry reduces heat loss or gain and also serves to conceal the exterior stairway to the Basement. Granite counters and backsplashes throughout both rooms serve to unify the two spaces, which utilize the same cabinets and storage units.
