Small Addition, Big Improvement

Even a newer home sometimes needs some reimagining. This recently-built Chantilly house lacked storage space and a small screened porch off the kitchen wasn't being fully utilized.

By adding some additional square footage in place of the porch, we were able to add a new space beyond the kitchen with a breakfast nook, powder room, bookcases and cabinets for mud-room-type storage, and a mini-fridge for easy patio party service.  The renovation also allowed for a new closet downstairs and a large walk-in closet upstairs.

The result is a smarter space that feels much larger than the square footage added.
