Modern Kitchen Makeover in Washington, DC

BOWAJuly 30, 2013
The client’s goal for this Washington, DC renovation was to create a larger, more modern kitchen in their existing Tudor-style house, with enough space for a breakfast room and improved access to the deck and back yard. An addition was built at the rear of the kitchen to accommodate the breakfast room and featured large windows overlooking the back yard. The existing space was reconfigured to improve the circulation between the kitchen, dining room and entry hall. A butler’s pantry was inserted between the kitchen and dining room which was perfect for their entertaining and storage needs.

The challenge for the design build contractor was to incorporate a modern kitchen in a rather traditional-style house and maintain a cohesive feel to the whole interior. The colors and materials were carefully selected to “soften” the new features of their kitchen. This modern European-Style kitchen features Bulthaup Cabinetry that blends beautifully with the Caeserstone and Aluminum kitchen counters. Sleek new appliances were also installed for a more contemporary touch, including a stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer as well as a Miele 27” coffee system.

The Washington, DC homeowners are thrilled with the transformation of their kitchen.

I LOVE IT!

Kinda crazy though ... my current kitchen reno also has no upper cabinets, quartz counters, full overlay fronts, and about 10 other similarities down to the faucet selected!

I love this too. Having just put a modern kitchen into an old home, I am always on the lookout for examples.

This is a modern eclectic kitchen in an older home that we worked on. We finished the walls and ceiling.

It seems that you have added storage. The before was a bit cluttered and the after is soothing and clutter free. Nice change and hope you love it.
