Τhe owners of a Mid-Century house in Concord, MA wanted to update the kitchen and improve the connection to the dining room.
FEINMANN design team managed with a great success to create a new functional and comfortable space.
By removing a redundant stairway to the basement from the kitchen, the FEINMANN design team was able to improve the connection between the kitchen and dining room. A new internal window with the same dimensions as the adjacent exterior windows turns the corner to bring light and connection to the dining room.
The wall opposite the dining room wall also was dramatically altered: a doorway into the laundry room was sealed off and the doorway to the mudroom/laundry/powder room and entrance area was opened up. The wall adjacent to the fireplace was scaled back so the main entrance to the home was visible from the family room area. A wood pellet fireplace with a new Dekton hearth and stone fireplace surround give the area an updated, textured appearance.
Slate tile flooring expands the tight entry area by connecting the entrance, mudroom and fireplace hearth spaces. A new built-in desk area with shelving next to the fireplace completes the tableau at that end of the room. Hardwood flooring is used throughout the rest of the space.
