A transformational kitchen renovation does more than add new paint, cabinets, and counters. It entirely reconstructs and customizes the layout, flow, and features to deliver a kitchen that truly aligns with the way you want to live. Doing this requires extensive planning from a design-build team and the willingness to look at your kitchen and its surrounding spaces creatively. Below, we showcase a wide range of kitchen renovations and their before and after photos to inspire your project.
Feinmann transformed the first floor of this home from a cramped, disconnected space into a grand contemporary kitchen to cook, entertain, and live. To do so, we bumped out the home’s side entrance and removed the walls that separated the kitchen, family room, and sunroom. By implementing these changes, we created an open-concept of living that is bright and spacious.
A Tranquil Kitchen Retreat
For a family of four in Lexington, Massachusetts, we reconfigured their 1948 colonial-style house to deliver a highly functional kitchen that connected effortlessly with their living spaces. Our design-build team accomplished this by replacing the hallway wall with a laminated veneer lumber beam, shifting the bathroom and deck door location, and opening up the living room entrance.
European Contemporary Kitchen
We designed and built this kitchen to have open space, state-of-the-art functionality, contemporary aesthetics, and wooden artistry. The client wanted a more expansive feeling kitchen, but with limitations like their abutting driveway and tight parking, the project required a creative solution. As a result, Feinmann slightly bumped out the exterior wall and elevated the ceiling with a unique architecture angle.
Let There Be Light
This client looked to improve their kitchen’s overall aesthetic and make it easy to eat casually and entertain for larger gatherings. Their original kitchen lacked natural light due to a screened-in porch that occupied most of the exterior wall. Understanding the importance of this element and how it impacts a space and its design, Feinmann removed the screen and roof from the porch to maximize sunlight.
Shuffling the Deck
The owners of this Sudbury, Massachusetts, home came to Feinmann seeking to enlarge and update their kitchen. They requested an area for family dinners and gatherings and additional counter space for cooking and baking. To meet the client’s needs, Feinmann opened the room from its dark, “boxy” confines by taking down the wall between the dining room and kitchen.
We worked closely with this family from Milton, Massachusets, to deliver a beautiful kitchen, reconfigured entirely with a modern aesthetic. Feinmmann accomplished the client’s goals by using their old laundry room, closet, and half-bathroom space to expand the kitchen. The final result was a much larger kitchen with a vastly improved layout that connected well with their dining and living room.
The owners of this Queen Anne Victorian in Belmont, Massachusetts, envisioned a new kitchen that was more extensive and functional than their existing one. With their backyard area having a classic barn, we designed their renovation to take advantage of their lovely views. We also expanded the kitchen’s footprint, created a new hallway bordered with three sets of sliding glass doors, and opened the kitchen to the family room to release the space from its previous “confinement.
Wanting a kitchen to make entertaining and gathering with friends and family feel seamless, the client hired us to remodel their home in Newton, Massachusetts. Their existing kitchen was cramped with limited cooking and storage space and cut short by their cluttered dining room and intruding half-bath. As a result, we knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room and relocated the bathroom to expand the area.
