Kitchen Addition IN CHESTERFIELD, VA
This beautifully updated kitchen addition in Chesterfield County started off as a dark, cramped space that was closed off from the rest of the house. The homeowner wanted an open, farmhouse style kitchen perfect for gathering with friends and family. The sun porch off of the existing kitchen was the obvious solution to gaining interior, living space. This kept costs down since there was already a foundation and a roof present.
In the above photo, you can see the newly expanded kitchen. Since the kitchen was being reconfigured, we were able to move the sink to the island making room for a six burner, Wolf gas cook top. The island was topped with a beautiful, natural, carrara marble stone with a crescent shaped overhang for additional seating. In addition to recessed lighting, three pendants were centered above the island. Below, you will notice that the dishwasher was added into the island next to the sink. This improves the workflow during the clean up after cooking a meal.
Above, you can see the large dining area that was created from the old sun porch. Although this space is part of the interior of the home, the exterior brick was left exposed to create that farmhouse feel. New windows were added for lots of natural lighting.
Below, you can see the new exterior of this kitchen remodel. Vinyl siding was used to keep the home easy to maintain. French doors make it possible to open the kitchen to the patio during mild weather.
During the remodeling process it is common to find surprises. In this case, the foundation had a very significant crack. Fortunately, helical piers were an easy solution for this failing foundation. This outdated kitchen and dingy sun porch have come a long way. Below are some before and after photos that capture the transformation.
