It’s time to reveal the finished Addition! Take a look at the before and after photos.

This young family loved their house and neighborhood, but they wanted to make some changes to the home to better fit their long term needs. Their remodeling must-haves were:

  • A new larger Kitchen, more open to the adjacent Dining Room
  • Adding a main level Powder Room
  • Creating a Mudroom/Drop-zone area for coats, boot, and bags
  • Enlarging the Owner’s Bedroom to fit a king-size bed
  • Dedicated Office space

We built a home Addition to get this family everything on their wishlist. We transformed their dated, cramped Kitchen into an open, modern space with touches that echo the original character found throughout the rest of the 1923 home.

Kitchen Before | The Kitchen was dated and cramped, with a challenging layout.
Kitchen Before | The built in breakfast nook was an inefficient use of space and wasn't ideal for entertaining.
Kitchen Before | Fitting modern appliances into the existing Kitchen was a challenge. The refrigerator was tucked in a corner away from the main cooking and prep areas of the Kitchen.

Our clients love their new vintage-modern Kitchen!

The new Kitchen has a vintage-modern style that our clients wanted. The finishes and fixtures for this remodel were chosen to tie together elements from the new Addition to the home’s existing features. Matching the wood stain in the new Addition trim and cabinets to the millwork in the rest of the house creates a seamless transition between the spaces. The new Addition Kitchen features white shaker style cabinets, a counter to ceiling white subway tile backsplash, and white marble-look quartz countertops. An oversized island provides a better in-Kitchen dining experience than the original tiny breakfast nook. New wood floors were installed and finished to match the home’s existing flooring. The Addition expanded the Kitchen, creating room for a more efficient layout and ample space for appliances.

Kitchen After | The finishes and fixtures for this remodel create a vintage-modern vibe, tying together elements from the new Addition to the home's existing features.

The new Mudroom just off the Kitchen has a built-in bench and storage.
The new Powder Room, in the hallway between the Kitchen and front rooms, has a sliding pocket door and corner sink to save space.

Creating An Owner’s Suite

Our client’s original Bedroom was small and did not have an en suite Bath. A small Bath could be accessed by walking down a hallway. The goal for this part of the remodel was to create an Owner’s Suite by enlarging the Bedroom into the Addition and adding a Bath. The existing 2nd-floor Bath down the hall can now become a dedicated kid’s Bath.

Bedroom Before | The original Owner's Bedroom only had 1 window, a very small closet, and was too small for a king size bed.
Owner's Bedroom Before
The new Owner's Suite on the second floor of the Addition has more natural light, an expanded closet and built-in storage, and is large enough for a king bed.
Owner's Bedroom After | The remodeled Owner's Suite has an expanded closet, custom built-in storage, and a new en suite 3/4 Bath.
The new 3/4 Bath features a shower with floor to ceiling subway tile laid in a herringbone pattern.
The Exterior Before | The back of the home had a small bump out and seldom-used balcony.
The Exterior After | The materials for the new Addition were chosen to match the home's existing exterior.
The Exterior After | The brick on the left is original to the home and the brick to the right on the Addition is new.
