New Kitchen & Mudroom

Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, PA

This large turn-of-the-century home suffered from years of neglect and many questionable “improvements”. Its best feature was a spacious and sunny dining room, with an oak-paneled arch and a bow window. Like many homes of its time, the kitchen was not integrated into the larger living space.

We decided to make the old kitchen into a mudroom, and to capture the space beyond the arch for a new kitchen. By removing a few walls, relocating a poorly located powder room, and introducing one opening through the long wall, we completely changed the home’s interior and its connection to the outdoors. The new kitchen is a blend of dark stained oak trim, white gloss cabinets, Carrara and soft gray marble tops, green slate floor, and off-white handmade tile.
