Chamlies-Wilburn Kitchen Remodel

Finally the Contractor gets to do a project in his own home! We transformed our 1925 Arts and Crafts Home Kitchen into a modern eclectic showcase! Keeping the traditional rail and style shaker cabinets allowed us to add a punch with an art deco backsplash and bright wall colors. The hardwood floors were restored after being covered up since 1944. We found slate from a 1950s Brunswick Pool Table and polished them as the main countertops in our wet and cooking areas. Warm butcher block completes the rest of the counters with plenty of prep space for pasta and pastries!

What is the length of the wall behind stove? What size refrigerator are you using? - I have 1925 kitchen that is very awkward with almost no workspace. Currently, there is no dishwasher and my refrigerator is a Samsung 26 c.f., french door style. I am having gas line re-installed to kitchen and will be adding a new gas stove, along the line of a G.E. Profile. I like to bake a lot and cook from scratch 98% of the time-D

Hi Denise, Thanks for inquiring! This is also a 1925 house, so I feel your pain with no adequate cooking area. The space is approximately 8 feet wide. The stove is a Dacor 36" 3-burner range, the refer is a 26 cu ft Maytag, and the two countertop sections are about 12 inches each. There was formerly a free standing 30" range, the refer, and a chimney that was removed to create the additional space.

Feel free to email me if you would like to see before and after photos to get a perspective. Also, I would be happy to look at your current space if you have photos and give you some ideas on possible solutions for greater productivity in the kitchen.
