Traditional Main Floor Renovation with Modern and New Rustic Touches

[Kitchen Portion]

This client’s house was taken from outdated and dark to light-colored and light-filled. Small modern touches were given to this updated traditional style renovation, as well as a sprinkle of new rustic captured in the kitchen’s custom island.


The kitchen’s previous island was totally redesigned for a new show-stopping effect. The counter was extended with two wooden legs for support, wainscot paneling around it with bead boards in the centers, and two custom built island bookcases with backlighting were added to increase the magic. Most of the cabinets were removed to keep a core three cabinets. The sink that was added to the island was double the size of the previous sink for entertaining purposes – major modifications were necessary to shoe horn the sink in.

1X wood boards and crown molding was added to the upper cabinets around the perimeter of the kitchen to bring them up to the ceiling. The cabinet above the new refrigerator was custom fabricated to accommodate the new fridge (which was enormous compared to the owners’ previous one) and to match the cabinetry perfectly.

The intricate gray tile backsplash throughout the kitchen added color, texture and a dynamic reflection of the under-counter lighting. The counter was redone in Cambria Quartz with an undermount stainless steel sink. New Thermador appliances were installed throughout the kitchen with a beautiful floating hood vent complimented by the ornate tile backsplash.
