Sophisticated Open Concept First Floor Addition and Renovation
This family has become a part of the Corinthian family as a multi-renovation client over the past several years. As always it was fun to help them achieve their goals with this renovation. They had outgrown their isolated kitchen which was separated from their family room and asked us to design a space that would provide an open floor concept for their first floor living spaces. In addition, they asked us to design and build a detached golf simulator and entertaining pavilion for their three active boys.
We opened their kitchen, adding square foot real estate to the back of the home, as well as removing the wall that separated the family room from the kitchen and back door access. With this additional space and by reconfiguring their back entry and powder bath areas, we were able to give them a designated mudroom area complete with lockers and a frosted glass pocket door. A custom-built hutch to complement the kitchen was added near this area filled with pantry overflow and snacks to grab on their way out the door. A more accommodating powder bath with black custom vanity and mitred countertop was added with easy access for the pavilion.
With this reconfiguration of space, we were able to repurpose their existing dining area into a coffee station and seating area. Custom walnut cabinetry featuring black trimmed glass front upper cab and floating shelves for display, their impressive coffee maker allows guests to make their favorite hot beverage, including the use of a small bar sink. This opens nicely into the new spacious and open kitchen, complete with custom black and walnut cabinetry and a gorgeous black hood with gold trim. An island with end cabinet storage anchors this room and the Subzero and Wolf appliances add a nice stainless pop. Gorgeous brass light fixtures complete each space and enhance not only the aesthetics but also the function of each area. The new dining area opens between the kitchen and family room with plenty of seating for all and a nice visual of their large beautifully landscaped back yard and new pavilion. The family room is not only easily accessible from the kitchen and dining areas, but it also received an updated bar area, complete with new cabinetry, countertops, beverage fridge and antique glass backsplash.
