1970’s Scandinavian View Kitchen
Before: Seventies color scheme: dark cabinets, “earth tone” colors. Lacks style and function for new owners!
Before: Dark interior colors fight with natural light and the beautiful view.
Before: Window over the sink faces the driveway. Glorious view is blocked. Dark interior colors are oppressive.
1970s Scandinavian View Kitchen features custom cherry cabinets, light gray Corian countertop, slate floor. Floor plan is more open, and includes a custom table in addition to a built-in banquette. Added feature: a phone niche that hides the family’s busy calendar.
After: Open plan and angled peninsula enhances the view. The remodeled kitchen included custom bins for the family’s large dogs.
1970s Scandinavian View Kitchen – Detail: Custom carved Norwegian-style window valance in the remodeled kitchen inspired homeowners to landscape the driveway.
The 1970s Scandinavian view kitchen was in a home built by a contractor for himself. Details were not important to him. New homeowners needed an updated kitchen where they could cook and entertain, and enjoy the great view. A structural wall was removed to open up the kitchen. New custom cherry cabinets were installed, and the homeowners chose low-maintenance Corian countertops.The remodeled kitchen features a telephone niche that hides the family’s calendar and notes when not in use. Other features are three built-in bins for dog food, a built-in table for four on the back of the angled peninsula, and a built-in banquette that will easily seat eight.
