When we purchased our home the kitchen had been remodeled but was very small with doors and windows everywhere. We bumped out the back of the house 8 feet to enlarge the space, add a mudroom and half bath. The mudroom doubles as a hall to the new bath to buffer from the kitchen.
It was important to us to reuse old materials in the addition to keep it from looking like an addition. All the windows and doors that were removed were reinstalled in the addition. The french doors were an eBay find and a perfect match for other french doors in the adjacent living room. A local woodworker built a new frame and added a transom for natural light. An old cabinet from the basement stairwell was installed in the mudroom and converted to storage closet/charging station for our phones. I purchased old door knobs to serve as coat hooks. The bathroom mirror was an old door removed from the medicine cabinet in another bathroom in the home.
Since the kitchen cabinetry was custom but modular we were able to remove and rearrange it to fit the new space. New cabinet doors were made to better reflect the style of the home and new hardware added. A pine cabinet that we found in the basement was refinished and used as an accent piece over the range. It's believed to be original to the home. An antique armoire was repurposed to serve as a pantry. To keep the budget in check we used laminate countertops in a slate pattern. The easy-care cork flooring is comfortable on the feet and insulates the floor for sound as well. The space was finished with all new stainless steel appliances and a vintage-looking cart as a center island.
