There are two under-counter ovens in this kitchen, each on either side of the Viking gas range. This allowed lenoreldavies to purchase a high-end range and relatively inexpensive ovens instead of buying an expensive range-and-oven combination. Deep drawers underneath the range store pots and pans. Electrical strip molding was installed underneath all of the cabinets, so the beautiful subway tile backsplash didn't have to be interrupted.
Butcher block built into the island serves as the main prep area. Instead of purchasing a huge high-end refrigerator, lenoreldavies installed two standard models that hinge on opposite sides. They open like French doors, provide a lot of storage space, and look like luxury models. Behind the partial refrigerator wall is an area with cubbies for her sons, a half-bath, a wine fridge, and a farm sink for basic cleanup and gardening.
The kitchen in lenoreldavies' 100-year-old Victorian-style house needed to be renovated to meet modern needs (with three hungry boys in the household, modern appliances were a must), but she also wanted to make sure the kitchen fit the home's style. The living area on the main floor was small and made up of many smaller rooms, so she had the rear wall and other partitions knocked down to create a larger kitchen space.
