1890 Cottage Style Kitchen

This Cottage style kitchen was designed for a clapboard-sided, 1890’s Kentucky cottage and is located in a small town near Lexington, Kentucky. The owners completely restored the house and wanted a kitchen that was clean and simple, with a period feel to blend with the house.

For this style kitchen, they chose cabinets with simple, flat panel doors, flush drawers, curved Shaker feet, and Shaker 45 degree crown molding. The sink cabinet has 1890’s-style beaded panel doors, ball feet, and contains a Kohler sink.

The finish is brushed linen white on the main cabinets and brushed moss green on the island. The counter tops are ¾’’ and 1¼’’ curly maple with brown stain and a mineral oil finish. The hardware is blackened Shaker wooden knobs.

The cabinets were made by my company, The Workshops of David T. Smith. I call this my cottage style. Flat simple panels and 3'' beadboard paneled doors. We also used curly maple counter tops. A mixture of bun feet and Shaker curved feet. The island is painted my Moss Museum paint to look like a "Found" piece. It was in a 1890 house in Midway Kentucky.

The sink is kind of shallow so you have to build a box behind it. And since it has curved sides it needs to be scribed to the cabinet.

It isn't Kohler. It's american Standard, but I couldn't find it on their website. The only thing I found was this link of Vintage Bath and Tub selling it as an American Standard Sink: http://www.vintagetub.com/asp/product_detail.asp?item_no=AS9062.008.020

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Furniture-style cabinet details. Years ago, before cabinets as we know them came into vogue, freestanding armoires, pie safes and presses were the rule. Evoke that time period by adding furniture features to built-ins. Tuck bun feet beneath lower cabinets and corbels beneath upper ones, or paint a built-in hutch a contrasting color to give the illusion that it isn't fixed.

4. Farmhouse sinks. Also called apron-front sinks, these beauties have made a comeback in recent years. They feature a broad, shallow face and an extra-deep bowl that can accommodate large pots or stacks of plates. Farmhouse sinks create a sense of country living, yet they're unfussy enough to work with cleaner-lined spaces. Although some versions on the market have raised or decorative detailing, streamlined styles like the one shown here are the most classic.
