This kitchen services a beautifully restored 1890’s Victorian. Vexed by a cramped, 1970’s-era kitchen space, the owners decided on a small addition to gain additional workspace, dining area, laundry room, and powder room. We designed a U-shaped kitchen with a utility wall for the built-in refrigerators and the double oven. We also created a built-in fold down writing desk in the dining area, and a butler’s pantry with leaded glass doors, designed to match the original leaded glass doors in an adjacent room. The cabinets were a simple, but elegant white turn of the century style, and the proportion, molding and details were all designed to blend with the original architecture of the home.
