Baby Boomer Kitchen Makeover traditional-kitchen

Baby Boomer Kitchen Makeover

This 1960’s era kitchen, complete with period fur-downs, short cabinets, and a star-trek console island was ripe for a remodel. Traffic flow was a big issue, as the utility room and garage door accessed the kitchen in the middle of the work triangle.
By redirecting traffic flow through the kitchen by moving the garage access, and re-arranging the work areas, this gourmet kitchen is now ready for battle. Gone is the stain-grade cabinets, and console island, confusing layout, and the busy wallpaper.
The focal point of this new kitchen is most certainly the 9 foot, black walnut, Red island. This spacious Island has a myriad of cool features, including under-counter cubbies for toddler crafts, two distinct sitting areas for work or socializing, and an in-island microwave drawer accessible to everyone. Just behind the island is a beautiful Viking range sitting just under a custom patina copper vent hood. The kitchen was widened over 16” and all the new painted cabinetry, including the double refrigerator finishes off an open, light and airy new gourmet kitchen. Add the pull-out pantry cabinets, the redesigned “mother’s desk”, and the farmhouse sink, and you have a masterpiece.

No problem. This is ShowHouse, by Moen. The style is Woodmere, model # S7208ORB. On the face front cabinet trim, best I can tell from the drawings (this project was 4 or 5 years ago), it is 2.5" wide.

Hi Sonya,
I apologize but I do not have the original floor brand. We had to match existing flooring with custom planks cut to match, so our end of this remodel of the floor was purely custom. --DRG

This stone is called Absolute Black. It is a granite, and one of only two dark-colored stones in granite you can find. I hope this helps. --DRG

This tile is Chantilly in Taupe, from Walker Zanger (www.walkerzanger.com/). It has a gorgeous look and really gives some nice depth to the backsplash. -- DRG

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Leveling and squaring the cabinetry in this 50-year-old home ended up being quite the challenge for Stow and his team. There was a lot of movement in the walls and floors, which made construction difficult. Custom cabinetry painted in a soft white was given an extra country-style touch with rustic looking hardware. A deep farmhouse sink is the perfect size to hold the family's dishes, while an in-island microwave drawer helps keep the cooking process simple and streamlined. Range: Viking Range, 36” Microwave Drawer: VikingSink: Rohl Shaws Original Fireclay Apron Front Kitchen SinkFixtures: Moen Level Classic One Handle Pulldown Kitchen FaucetCountertop: Indian Black granite, 3cm thick, chamfered edge
