Our MOSS customers loved their home and Springfield community, but were feeling tight on space with the layout of their home’s main level, especially the boxy feel of the kitchen and (rarely used) dining room. In addition, the homeowners wanted a mudroom created that would provide a new entryway for their busy family and that also included a main level laundry room.
Before the remodel, the kitchen had dark cabinets, a small space for dining, and a wall separating it from the dining room. As the dining room wasn’t used very often, the homeowners knew that they wanted to expand the kitchen to create a bigger, better, and brighter space for their family to relax and entertain friends.
Removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room began the process for the kitchen remodel. It supplied the square footage for a large island, plenty of new cabinetry, brighter lighting, and more freedom of movement. In addition, there was room allotted for seating at one end at a high-top cabinetry, giving the space a unique look at one end.
While the cabinetry was supplied by the homeowners, MOSS aided with the selection of the white ornamental granite for the countertops. The kitchen floor remained a warm hardwood, while the mudroom floor was laid with a speckled, square tile – perfect for muddy or wet shoes upon entry.
MOSS was tasked with adding a mudroom space. The newly constructed space is directly off the kitchen, as pictured, and has a built-in for hanging coats and keys and storing umbrellas and shoes. The main mudroom space contains not only the laundry appliances but also additional cabinetry for storage and miscellaneous items. The icing on the cake is the extra refrigerator, perfect for cold beverages and other items that aren’t needed on an everyday basis, as well as the surrounding cabinetry around the fridge, which serves as storage for cleaning supplies and other items that might be rarely used. Additionally, a powder room previously in the main home’s structure was removed, and a new one was created in the new mudroom addition.
MOSS helped to transform this Springfield home from relatively basic to incredibly inspired. It is now a bright, beautiful, and open space perfect for the homeowners and their family.
