This Baltimore County couple have a very attractive property behind their home… and they had almost no view of it from the small single window of their existing kitchen.

This kitchen remodel and addition bumped out the rear of the home just a bit and added a beautiful new breakfast room with glass on three sides to take in the light and the view. A new mudroom serves as a ‘drop-off’ area for those entering the home, keeping the kitchen island from becoming a collector of clutter.

The oversized windows that let the view into the kitchen meant less room for wall cabinets, but the addition of a walk-in pantry/closet more than compensates for the lost storage space. Vaulting the ceiling in the family room allowed the windows there to run to the old ceiling height of 8 feet, again creating a more spacious feeling. The beams on the kitchen ceiling set it off as a separate space from the adjoining family room.

From the Client

My husband and I did a remodel of our first floor. Peter was great guiding us every step of the way and all the while encouraging us to remain true to our dream! He was infinitely patient as we took a few turns on the design side but in the end, it was worth it. As Peter would say “You got here (what you really wanted) because you took the detours and discovered what really worked for you.” From concept, drawings, contractor selections, construction and finally project completion, Peter was there reassuring us with his presence that all would turn out well. The project was completed within the original projected time frame and we absolutely love the finished product!

I would highly recommend 2e Architects for your project. Peter will provide professional services but will care about the project as if it was his own home.
