Family Loves to Entertain But Kitchen Is Too Small

Dilemma: A family that loves to entertain with a kitchen that is way too small.
Solution: Kitchen addition and remodel. The project includes a rear addition off the existing kitchen and also behind the garage to create a laundry/mudroom. The exterior features casement windows, a masonry patio with stone knee wall, grill, lighting, and a retractable canvas awning. The kitchen displays the unfitted design where all the cabinetry does not match. The perimeter cabinets are stained and the tiered island is a white painted beadboard. The wood flooring is bamboo with a dark stain. The wet bar, with beverage center and dishwasher drawers, is situated on the opposite wall of the cooking area. The addition has a vaulted ceiling and a rear feature wall painted “scarlet red.” The owners, avid Rutgers University football fans, wanted a great space to watch the games, entertain and always be in season!
