Addition to kitchen adds needed space

1966-Addition to kitchen adds needed space (1)An older 10×12 kitchen in the home of Mr and Mrs Stewart Lund once was adequate for their needs. But, as the room overflowed with grandchildren, weekend guests, and Mrs Lund’s wonderful foods, the kitchen just couldn’t meet the test.

The family decided to build a new addition to solve their space problems.

The remodeled and enlarged kitchen can meet any challenge. A U-shaped work center efficiently circles one end of the room. Eye-level electric range and large refrigerator-freezer take their positions at the ends of the “U.”

The cleanup center with under-counter dishwasher separates cook-and-serve centers on the left and refrigeration-mixing headquarters that is located on right.

Pull-out cooking surface on range, upper left, is flush with the base cabinets when not in use. Range, and other major appliances in kitchen are adjacent to ample counter and storage space. In addition, detergents, soaps, cleansers have their own storage space in glass-door cabinets in backsplash area above sink.

Serving peninsula, above, is part of the desk-sewing area; it’s handy, too, as a place to line up buffet dinners. The tall storage units in background hold party and picnic needs and linens. Felt cutouts on doors accent the muted greens in the wallpaper.

Roomy eating area, opposite, is close to both working centers and the serving supplies stored in desk-sewing area. Dining area seats eight to ten comfortably, boasts a fine view of the garden.
