After living in their historic Bungalow for 12 years, the homeowners set to work crafting a design for a kitchen expansion and remodel project that fit their needs and much loved historic home. They decided that a modest expansion of the kitchen and a screened porch addition would serve to make the house more livable for their family of four. 150 square feet was added to the rear of the house to create space for the new kitchen. Further to the rear sits the new screened porch - located to have a direct connection to kitchen while preserving views of the back yard. Double doors that can be folded back provide a large opening that makes the kitchen and screened porch function as a continuous space that works well for weeknight family dinners or entertaining when the weather is appropriate. The simple pallet of wood cabinets with inset doors, soapstone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and shiplap siding walls works to evoke a clean, simple, timeless aesthetic. A custom blackened steel range backsplash along with blackened steel pot rack and shelves serve as accents that also function as durable surfaces that will patina with age.
