In this Lexington colonial home, Feinmann reimagined the kitchen and family room. We created a connecting space featuring contemporary design, open sightlines, and magnificent functionality for cooking and entertaining.
The original kitchen and family room had an abundance of challenges and issues. For instance, the kitchen layout felt cramped due to little cooking space. The area was small because the place was located awkwardly between the mudroom, powder room, and family room. In addition, the rooms did not connect well with each other or the backyard. The space lacked natural light and functional seating, and there was a corner fireplace that disrupted the flow of the family room.
Feinmann created a contemporary kitchen and an open floor plan by doing the following. To start, we relocated the powder room to the front of the mudroom, allowing for a larger kitchen area. Then we moved the fireplace to the back wall, which gave rise to several great design solutions. For instance, it allowed us to open the sightlines to the backyard and add multiple glass doors, which significantly increased the natural light. It also improved the family room layout making it more suitable for entertainment and watching a movie. On top of these changes, we added a coffered ceiling in the kithcen, which helped differentiate the space from the family room. We also integrated modern design elements, an island with seating, and lots of storage.
