Mid Century Modern Kitchen

This remodel of a mid century modern home was focused on improving the flow and functionality of the kitchen while respecting the existing design style. We removed the wall separating the living area from the kitchen and installed recycled chalkboard countertops on some great new cabinets by Kerf design. New aluminum windows added much needed cross ventilation while complementing the existing architecture. New appliances, lighting and flooring rounded out the remodel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Three walls of large windows open the kitchen to natural light. Piper replaced the home's original single-pane windows to help the kitchen maintain a more consistent temperature in Seattle's chilly winters. Initially, the window walls presented some challenges to the electrical work. The home's midcentury roof construction meant there was no clear way to run wiring into the ceiling, and the windows prevented using the walls. "We had to do some very creative wiring and use some exposed conduit to get the lights and switches where we wanted them," says Piper.
