Alexandria Timeless Kitchen Addition

An exterior addition was added to this house to add space to the kitchen, family room, and master bedroom above. The new space incorporated a load bearing beam hidden behind columns and custom cabinetry to span the new space. Unique plumbing challenges were met with a seamless subway tile backsplash and custom depth spice storage bellow. Slide in range, open glass refrigeration, and convection microwave still met the clients updated needs. The coffered ceiling blend the new family room into the kitchen while hiding the load bearing elements. Overall the new timeless design blends with the couples existing furnishings while allowing them to entertain guests and family.

This is a very basic starter off white subway tile from dal-tile. I would recommend going to a local supplier and matching a tile that works with your space/countertop. Hope that helps!

Correct it is oak flooring - generally we do custom stains so this would be a combination of colors to get the flooring to match the original so I don't a specific stain to tell you. I would recommend working with your designer/contractor to come up with a color that works for you project. Good luck!

The ceilings are roughly 8' -- you should be able to work something out for that with the installer since that's what we did in this case and I've done on other jobs. The duct work can be trickier if it's not on the perimeter of the room. But you can combine soffits @ cabinets and integrate them with beams as needed. I would just find someone skilled to work with to figure this out. Best of luck!

What is the height between the microwave and cooktop? - Looking to do the same in my remodel but worried the height will be too close

Thanks for the reply - I currently have about 18" which is the spec. Another question for you -- do you know the paint color used for the cabinets? I am looking for a white and have very similar wall color and floor stain. Thanks!

These are a parchment color - so a creamy ivory color. If you want something whiter that bridges the gap to cream I'd go with BM white dove

This particular model is no longer manufactured. I'd recommend searching for a goose neck faucet with 2 separate handles and I'm sure you can find something similar with kohler, moen, or rohl depending on your price point. Best of luck!

restoration hardware and I don't believe they sell them anymore. I'd look on lumens or a local lighting store for something comparable. Its a pretty classic design - rejuvenations also has period lighting. Good luck!

this is the cabinet lines parchment paint color - I would recommend a soft cream/off white color either customizing to your trim color to match or looking at the manufacturers offerings. The granite is Bianco Romano - a lighter slab than I've seen lately.

The top grill is part of the fridge - the peice above is a door that hinges up for tray/sheet pan storage made by the custom cabinetry line.

One of the colums is structural the other is not. There is a seam in the granite not visible in this view - a good fabricator should be able to work with you the project to acheive the most seamless look. Hope that helps!

The island is 78" x 36" (cabinetry only). Since these were inset doors we did a 1" countertop overhang on all sides. Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to 10 Home Fixes That Require a Pro
3. Removal of a load-bearing wall. Knocking out a wall sounds simple, right? Well, if it's load bearing, meaning it carries and distributes weight, things get a lot more complicated. Eliminating such a wall wipes out support for the ceilings, floors and other structural elements that rest on it — and that can have disastrous consequences for the entire home. Plus, the wall could contain wiring or ductwork that you don't want to disturb. Leave this tricky and time-consuming job to a remodeling contractor.
Lisa Frederick added this to See-Through Refrigerators Dare to Go Bare
Cleaning. Think stainless steel is tough to keep clean? It has nothing on glass. Every smudge, fingerprint and splatter will show, so you must be diligent about wiping down the fridge door regularly. Keep in mind, too, that interior shelves look best when they're pristine, which requires extra elbow grease.
