This 60’s home had a peninsula with base cabinets as well as upper cabinets with a double wall oven at the end, smack dab in the middle of the room. Basically closing the kitchen off to the rest of the space.
We removed all of the peninsula cabinets, old wall oven, and the existing cooktop, and re-installed much of the cabinetry on the outer wall. We built a new false soffit to match the existing one, replaced the bead board walls with drywall, and installed and refaced the removed peninsula cabinets along the extension of the kitchen wall, accompanied by some new cabinetry to enhance functionality. Many new custom made drawer boxes with soft close glides were installed to complete that side of the room.
On the opposite side of the kitchen, an unused kitchen desk area was torn out and a duplicate pantry was custom built, and refaced to match. The bookcase was refaced and outfitted with new doors and new drawer boxes as well. The owner chose to go with Northern Contours Manchester II doors done in Glacier White thermofoil.
New Quartz countertops, New hardwood floors, and some new furniture was the finishing touches that brought the transformation together.
Still a warm, and inviting, traditional cooks kitchen, but now, brought into modern times with finishes, space and functionality that brings the whole family together.
