1990’s Remodeled Kitchen in Custom Traditional Home

The homeowners realized their need for changes after a beautiful conservatory and park-like landscaping were completed. They wanted to swap the location of the sink and cooktop, and wanted to create a great room, which meant moving the desk to a different location and eliminating the oversized built-in banquette. They also wanted to eliminate the wallpapered soffit, and install new cabinets. They liked the original white cabinets, but the homeowners felt that an all-white kitchen feels too sanitary. They were tired of the tile floor (and the grout).

The remodeled kitchen has off-white, glazed upper cabinets and tall cabinets with V-groove doors. The base cabinets are alder. New countertops are Cambria, an engineered stone, with two sinks and a custom tile backsplash. The new, rounded peninsula features LED lighting under the bar cap, to provide task, ambient, and accent lighting. The new dual-fuel range and powerful hood are located on the original angled wall. A custom alder table with cherry edge was installed on the back side of the peninsula for the couple to use daily. There is guest seating at the rounded corner of the bar cap.
