“A kitchen is what makes a house a home,” said Arlena R., who lives in the Ashland area. “This is where your family comes together. All of the big events – Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas, the summer bbq – it all begins in the kitchen.” She laughed. “And that’s where all the great conversations happen afterward.”
The kitchen in Arlena’s Ashland home just wasn’t cutting it. “The house itself is pretty new. It was built in the 1990’s. I thought that meant we’d have no problems with it. But the kitchen was really poorly designed and the windows didn’t open!” Both problems are actually surprisingly common. Trends in kitchen design weren’t always guided by practical wisdom.
In Arlene’s case, a long, narrow kitchen with a pantry on one end was both dark and claustrophobia inducing. “I wanted more space, and I wanted more light.” An Ashland kitchen addition was the answer. “My Ashland building contractor took out this wall here and extended the kitchen another 12 feet. You would not believe the difference 12 feet makes!”
Another feature of her Ashland home addition that Arlena really loves is the new windows. “We had replacement windows installed, and they’re so much bigger than our original windows,” she said. “They let in so much light – and it turns out that having these replacement windows put in helped us save some money on our taxes. Not only that, but because they’re better built than the original windows, we use less heat in the winter. In New England, that’s no joke!”
