Prairie Style Addition & Kitchen - Kitchen

The owners of this 1915 prairie style home desired to expand their kitchen and bring in the authentic old-world detailing of the rest of the home. To this end, the kitchen was opened to the dining area room and a small addition was built. The dining room’s beamed ceiling and prairie style woodwork were carried into the new kitchen and oak cabinets were custom built to match existing woodwork and hutches. This project helped the owners make the most of their home and recaptured its original spirit. Photo by Brit Amundson.

It's marmoleum - the color is henna, with a 'van gogh' color inlay. We did it because the rest of the main level of the home has terrazzo floors, but putting in new terrazzo in the kitchen would have been prohibitively expensive. This was a good solution because it was less costly but kept the same feel as the rest of the floors. The inlay is present on the terrazzo as well. Of course we were a little scared of marmoleum because we've all seen really terrible looking vinyl floors in 70's and 80's kitchens. This stuff looks and feels much more high quality, and the texture is soft and warm underfoot.
