Is your kitchen getting a little cozy with a growing family (in number and size)? Do you find you spend almost all your family time around the kitchen island or dinner table? This is a common occurrence as time goes on – your house stays the same as when you first bought it but your family is changing! Maybe it’s time to take a long, hard look at a home remodel – and more specifically, one that will help make the areas you hang out in the most a better fit for your family. At MOSS, we’ve helped many families create the kitchen bump out remodel of their dreams, making their space larger and more attractive and with a better flow and fit for what their family needs.


Is a Kitchen Bump Out an Addition?

A kitchen bump out is essentially an extension of your existing home – adding on space to your kitchen into available space in your backyard or side yard to create a larger space that provides you the room you need, but without a massive multi-story addition. Pushing out the space from your kitchen allows you the option of making an open concept level to your home, one in which your family can gather around a large island, create a formal eat-in space (that can be informal as well) and give your overall home more square footage.

One of the best reasons to add on a kitchen bump out is to help the overall flow of your home: no longer will you be bumping into one another as you make dinner, put dishes away, entertain, or just eat as a family. Adding a kitchen bump out gives you more comfortable space to gather for meals, holidays, or simply family time.

Gorgeous Oak Hill Kitchen Bump Out


Created for a family that loves to entertain, this kitchen bump out was designed to showcase the large center island, which serves as a place to prep meals, eat dinners, and, when entertaining, a buffet zone. The bump out is open to both the casual living room and the family room, creating a flow that didn’t exist prior to the remodel.
