Farmhouse Kitchen, Family Room, and Mud Room Remodel

Balducci Additions and Remodeling recently completed this incredible farmhouse style kitchen, family room, and mud room remodel in Glen Allen, Virginia. The clients wished to update their 1990’s home with more modern finishes. We collaborated on the designs of the space with the interior design firm, Fifth and Pink Designs, and created a traditional rustic feel. The project involved: adding in bright and cheery white cabinetry in the kitchen, installing a Cherry island, and entirely revamping their mud room.

Open concept kitchen and dining area

In addition to updating the space, these clients wanted to create a space in their homes to cook and entertain for their family and friends. The space now serves as a perfect place to entertain with its open-concept layout between the dining, kitchen, and living areas. The space also comes equipped with a custom wine bar where an unused closet used to be.

In addition, the dining area now includes a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. The room is topped off with a rustic chandelier fixture.

Kitchen with Two-Toned CabinetsThe dining area flows effortlessly into the completely reconfigured kitchen. This kitchen features white custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a gray ceramic tile backsplash, and a Cherry island. The placement of the stove and refrigerator are switched onto opposite walls and are replaced with upgraded stainless steel options. To complete this new kitchen layout, a large farmhouse style sink is put in place in the island. We love the look of the white cabinets in contrast with the dark Cherry island and we expect this trend to stick around well into 2017.





Before and After of the Kitchen Space


Cozy Living Room with Entertainment AreaThe farmhouse style continues in the family area where the fireplace received an upgrade and a rustic mantel. A huge hit of the space is the barn door that separates the family room from the mud room. It was the perfect choice for the space since it allows for the mud room to be blocked off, yet it doesn’t add the bulkiness of a regular door.

These client’s mud room and powder room received a huge transformation. The powder room that was once just off of the family room has been reconfigured to just beyond the barn doors and includes a contemporary vessel sink, dark vanity, and oval mirror. The mudroom consists of white custom built-ins with lots of storage and a place to hang coats, store shoes, and organize other household items.
