Burlington VT

You read it right: Vermont.  4 hours one way to the Boston store, and in need of help designing their Ikea kitchen, these folks reached out to me about a year ago, & we were able to help them out from here in NC.

We went through several concepts & weighed the pros & cons of each.  Then we settled on one that stole some space from an oversized existing mudroom to make a livable, practical, beautiful kitchen.

Here’s the rough floor plan we ended up with from the last concept in the table. We converted the existing mudroom into the kitchen space, & stole space from the existing deck for the new, smaller mudroom. We included an option to expand the deck in the future.

Things that were important to them:

  • maximize natural lighting via South & East windows
  • mud room is a must-have in the NE winters
  • minimal division between kitchen & dining
  • European sized refrigerator – they grow their own, eat fresh & compost, so cool storage requirements were small
  • maintaining look & feel of an older home in a historic area
