Besides the COVID pandemic that impacted everyone, Denise’s family went through some additional challenges over the years. “Our older son was in quite a serious motorcycle accident, and was in a wheelchair for some time. The kitchen was just impossible for him. He couldn’t maneuver in there at all.” Then, Denise’s husband’s daughter and her children moved in. “We’re a big family to begin with, and now there’s three more people in the household. There was not enough space to accomplish all of the work that needs to be done on a daily basis.”
“When we bought this house, our children were very young – Louie wasn’t even born yet!” Louie, a boisterous seven-year old is practicing his soccer skills in the back yard of his parent’s Needham home. His Mom Denise is explaining what motivated the family to have a local home addition company remodel the kitchen. “I thought the kitchen at that time was perfect. I couldn’t imagine needing any thing changed in any way. But we’ve been through a lot since then.”
Versatility – Creating Smart Kitchens for Busy Families With Active Lives
As Needham kitchen contractors, we can tell you that the number one reason most area families remodel the kitchen is that they want a larger space that works better for their family. Versatility has proven to be so important: today’s best local kitchen designers include areas that easily multi-task.
“When the kitchen designer first suggested a pop-out nook with windows facing the garden, I was a little skeptical,” Denise said. “It sounded like it would just be this nice detail – but my husband really pressed to have it included in our custom kitchen design, and I’m glad he did. The kitchen now is so bright and airy because of these new windows – and the nook itself turns out to be the part of the kitchen our kids and grandkids like best.”
