A previous remodel closed up the openings from the living room to the back of the house; we removed that entire wall and pushed out the back wall to open up the space. LVL's span the width of the space and support the floor above.
The white Shaker cabinets and white Sparkle quartz countertops contrast with a pop of blue in the island.
View from dining room into kitchen. The backsplash tile is Ana Bliss Element 2x6 Brick Mosaic Skylight. The cabinet pulls are Hickory Hardware Greenwich 5".
The hard-working island includes a double trash drawer, a cabinet for small appliances, and this spice cabinet, which is convenient to the range but away from the heat. It is accessible to the homeowners who are not tall.
View from the dining room to the pantry and mudroom. The cherry barn door was a homeowner request.
View from the mudroom entrance, showing the mirrored closet doors on the left (with stacked washer-dryer and storage), and the dining room through the doorway. Porcelain tile is a durable solution and doesn't show dirt.
View from the dining room past the kitchen island to the living room. The full-depth cabinet over the fridge accommodates trays on one side and large items on the other.
The dining room and kitchen bumpouts and a small deck occupy the footprint of the original deck.
