Addition with Kitchen Remodeling in Fairfax, Virginia

October 28, 2014



We recently revamped this kitchen in Fairfax, Virginia. Like many other homes in the Northern Virginia area, it was constructed with a small kitchen and a separate dining area. Larger, more open kitchens are now in high demand and most of our kitchen remodels involve tearing down a wall or two. Combining the dining area with the kitchen creates a more open space and looks much more modern. It also improves functionality as there is more room for movement and less bumping into one another!

To make this kitchen even larger for this family of six, we built an addition on the back of the home. As you can see in the pictures below, this house once had a screened-in porch. It was somewhat small, outdated, and rarely used. In order to create the kitchen our clients needed, we agreed to tear down the porch and extend the kitchen by building an addition instead. This addition added much needed space on the back of the house and created what is now their dining space. Not only did the addition provide extra room for dining,  it opened up the top level of their home and has created the perfect all-in-one space for relaxing, eating, and catching up after a long day. This is a wonderful example of transforming a boxed-in kitchen into a large, open space with lots of room to move around.

This is how the porch looked before the addition:

While building the addition, we got to work on the kitchen remodel. This is how the kitchen looked before:





Here are the final results of this addition and kitchen remodeling project. Now they have a bright and open kitchen with counter space, storage space, and room for all six of them to be together!
