A fitting new kitchen for a beautiful antique home
This project is dear to our hearts because this client was the first person who walked through our door as a potential client when we opened our showroom. It took them a few years to finally move forward with the project, but we appreciate their loyalty and trust. This beautiful antique home was built in 1900. It sits on one of Littleton’s main streets and it’s a home we have come to love over the years. When we were asked to remodel the kitchen we were both honored and excited to be a part of it.
The existing kitchen was large with high ceilings, beautiful crown moldings, beams, a staircase, lots of windows, and a large antique Glenwood stove. So, what was the problem you may ask? The work stations were very small and it had a lot of free standing furniture pieces that were being used to store china, serving dishes and other kitchen items. The island was an old pine table that had been retrofitted with cabinets for additional storage. In other words the kitchen was quaint, but it didn’t fit the storage requirements for this busy family of 4.
We designed the new kitchen in the same footprint of the existing kitchen, we moved the location of the refrigerator to accommodate a 48” Thermador refrigerator. We planned for a large pantry to serve as a small appliance and food storage. We designed a hutch by the new refrigerator to keep the character of the house. We added counter space as well as storage space by the antique stove. The newly redesigned island has an antique finish in a deep blue called Knights Armour with lots of convenient storage and seating areas for a quick breakfast before school.
