This circa 1928 kitchen had lost its period charm for the homeowners, who are enthusiastic cooks. The tight space was not conducive to family living, and storage was a huge problem. The kitchen was outdated and in disrepair. The original doorways were very narrow, and it was difficult to fit appliances through them. Knob and tube wiring had to be replaced throughout, and the dining room wall was removed for open-concept.
The new “painted slate” cabinetry maximizes the space, with lots of storage solutions, like two drawers for knives, a silverware caddy, and pull-out trash & recycling bins. We also added pantry space directly across from the basement entry door to take advantage of every inch. There’s now a place for everything. Beautiful new quartz countertops and a new peninsula provide plenty of prep space for meals.
We closed off a window to create more wall space for upper cabinets, but since there is no central air in the house, that meant making the existing windows more functional. We replaced the window over the sink with an awning style window (so the window could still open in inclement weather) flanked by double-hung windows. A modern ceiling fan was also added to assist with circulation.
The owner was so thrilled with the whole remodeling process that she has now enrolled in Design School herself!
