Judith’s Kitchen Addition


2015 NARI Metro DC CoTY Addition $100K-$250K Merit

Project Overview

In need of a larger kitchen, Judith contacted Merrick to build an addition. She wanted her Westgate home to have the charm of 1940s homes, but still feel fresh, and be bolstered with all the modern conveniences. This addition gave us space for a generous work triangle, an island, a small powder room, and even a cozy office area.

To accomplish the look and feel Judith desired, we removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room. The cabinets are a white Shaker with soapstone countertops, complimented by a Schooner-blue island with a maple countertop. White shelving with distressed metal corbels displays Judith’s collectibles.

No detail was overlooked: We used caged pendant lights, a farmhouse sink, a period-look stainless faucet, a paneled dishwasher, and tucked away microwave & exhaust to keep that vintage kitchen feel. And the cherry red, 1950s reproduction appliances take this kitchen to a whole new level.

Over the past several years Merrick Design & Build has done several projects to upgrade our 66 year old home. Most recently they completely remodeled our kitchen. We have always been extremely grateful for their assistance during the design phase and in this case help in choosing the best cabinetry and appliances for our needs and budget. Their carpentry crew and contractors were professional and kept to the schedule and met all deadlines. We have been extremely satisfied.
