Transitional Kitchen Remodel and Addition in Birmingham, MITraditional Kitchen, Detroit

This beautiful Birmingham, MI home had been renovated prior to our clients purchase, but the style and overall design was not a fit for their family. They really wanted to have a kitchen with a large “eat-in” island where their three growing children could gather, eat meals and enjoy time together. Additionally, they needed storage, lots of storage! We decided to create a completely new space.

The original kitchen was a small “L” shaped workspace with the nook visible from the front entry. It was completely closed off to the large vaulted family room. Our team at MSDB re-designed and gutted the entire space. We removed the wall between the kitchen and family room and eliminated existing closet spaces and then added a small cantilevered addition toward the backyard. With the expanded open space, we were able to flip the kitchen into the old nook area and add an extra-large island. The new kitchen includes oversized built in Subzero refrigeration, a 48” Wolf dual fuel double oven range along with a large apron front sink overlooking the patio and a 2nd prep sink in the island.

Additionally, we used hallway and closet storage to create a gorgeous walk-in pantry with beautiful frosted glass barn doors. As you slide the doors open the lights go on and you enter a completely new space with butcher block countertops for baking preparation and a coffee bar, subway tile backsplash and room for any kind of storage needed. The homeowners love the ability to display some of the wine they’ve purchased during their travels to Italy!

We did not stop with the kitchen; a small bar was added in the new nook area with additional refrigeration. A brand-new mud room was created between the nook and garage with 12” x 24”, easy to clean, porcelain gray tile floor. The finishing touches were the new custom living room fireplace with marble mosaic tile surround and marble hearth and stunning extra wide plank hand scraped oak flooring throughout the entire first floor.

Typical project length. “The scope of the project really determines how long it will take,” Thornton says. “If it is a simple frame construction addition, it may not take long, but if it is a multistory masonry addition, it could add a couple months to the schedule.” The interior work, Thornton says, can take three to five months, depending on existing conditions and the extent of the work required.Zoning and permitting requirements can really throw a wrench into your timeline, so it helps to know going in what sort of challenges you’re likely to face in that department. “Here in Chicago,” Thornton says, “if you require a zoning variance, it can take four to six months just to get on the agenda with the city before you can even request your permit, then another one to two months to get the permit and begin work.”Your Complete Guide to Building Permits

Interesting look. Doesn't extend by too much but adds end "columns."
