This project involved the relocation of the laundry room, expansion and reconfiguration of the kitchen, and new flooring installed throughout the house. This young family was experiencing growing pains as they and their two young boys were outgrowing the size of their kitchen. Living space was a premium in their home so creating a space efficient design was the main objective.
Unique Characteristics of Project
As we worked through the design phase, the re-occurring challenge in all the proposed configurations was determining the refrigerator location. In the existing layout, the laundry appliances were in the kitchen closet, bottlenecking the garage entrance and refrigerator area. By relocating the laundry room to upstairs we solved multiple design challenges. The closet became the new location for the refrigerator, creating much needed cabinet space for additional storage. This also kept the laundry tasks contained to the upstairs and allowed the kitchen to be used for cooking and entertaining.
