Bradlee Ave, Swampscott, MA, Traditional Kitchen, Mudroom and Garage Renovation

The owners of this traditional suburban home wanted to raze the one story detached garage and build a new garage with a mudroom, casual dining room, patio and kitchen. the space was tight and the geometry was challenging as there were 3 level changes to deal with including access to the basement and the future home office above the garage. The result was a very pleasing solution that looks like it's original to the home. The design elements on the garage are copied directly from the main house. The new space emphasizes the traditional nature of the interior without becoming overly formal by opening up what otherwise might be separate discreet spaces. The cherry floor anchors the rooms and gives the composition a sense of warmth. The beamed ceiling breaks up an otherwise flat ceiling and recalls similar ceiling designs in other rooms of the house. White paneled kitchen cabinets are clean and visually widen an otherwise narrow space. The high ceiling of the casual dining area resolve the level changes between the main house and the garage and allow for extensive visual and physical access to the backyard.

The traditional kitchen as mostly painted white but with a dark cherry floor and chairs to anchor the middle of the room. The island cabinets are mahogany and work well with the white wall and base cabinets. Michael McCloskey
