The owner wanted to update her North Richland Hills kitchen area to better accommodate her lifestyle, which includes her love of pets. She has two large dogs and several cats who are either outside or in the home while she is at work during the day. In addition, the kitchen was cramped, and she felt it should have a better flow with more usable space and increased storage.
The owner’s dream was to expand the kitchen and add on a sunroom, which would provide her the best of both worlds. By increasing the size of her kitchen and adding a sunroom, she could allow her pets their own space with access to the outdoors through a custom pet door. The combination of these two projects dramatically changed the look and feel of her home.
Details about the design:
We accomplished our client’s dream by removing the pantry, island and several cabinets interfering with the new design. We kept most of the cabinets along the perimeter of the kitchen, merging the new layout and design with the existing. New cabinet doors replaced worn and dated doors, matching the new cabinets. We expanded the kitchen by adding additional cabinetry in the breakfast room and changed the opening to the back yard with a French Door into the new sunroom. Lots of windows surround the room, proving scenery and ample natural lighting while the custom doggie door leads to a ramp for the pups so they have easy access to the outdoors. Modern and sleek meets casual with the pairing of two-toned cabinets, a multi-colored glass mosaic backsplash, marble-look quartz countertops and a white farmhouse sink.
