Breakfast Nook

A morning retreat gets an uplift

Project

Breakfast Nook

2008 HBA Colorado Award for Remodeling Excellence Honorable Mention winning project, Specialty Room Remodel
  • Create a new informal Nook that allows the owners to enjoy the beautiful, expansive view of their rural property
  • Design a small intimate Hearth Room
  • Define two separate areas in one large space open to existing kitchen

What We Did

  • The informal Nook was designed with a three sided addition using large windows on all three sides to frame the beautiful views
  • Definition of the Hearth Room was achieved by partially closing the passage to the Living Room and adding a fireplace wrapped with an elegant stone surround
  • An open yet defined design gives a sense of two separate rooms, but blends the openness of the kitchen and living room
  • Natural light fills the open room from the see-thru fireplace and the glass above the mantle; as an added benefit the fireplace can be enjoyed from both the Hearth Room and Deck
  • Creative use of existing design elements and finishes allow the new construction to blend seamlessly with the original structure
