Lowry Hill homes can sometimes be tough to remodel. Often they have had additions over the years that use space inefficiently. This existing house had a decent sized kitchen but it was laid out in such a way that the homeowners didn’t have the ability to have everyone eat in the kitchen. There was a back entry and mudroom that were not working and a back servants stair that was never used. The goal of this project was to create a better entry and mudroom space, improve the connectivity to the basement, create a kitchen that the family could eat together in and add a second floor master bathroom and kids bathroom. One of the homeowner’s requests was to create an island that allowed the family to eat across from one another, rather than side by side, like many typical islands. The resulting kitchen design was born out of that request. The family now eats in their kitchen every day and enjoys the new space.
