Persimmon rustic-kitchen


This renovation project began with the screen doors. Warped and rotted, they needed replacing. From there, it evolved into a new kitchen, mudroom, reconfigured interior spaces, and a general spiffing up both inside and out. The result is a cohesive product, complete and requiring only regular maintenance.

Tile floor - We are about to design an 80's kitchen..the Mexican tile floor presents some designers and realtors with a thought that the tile is definitely dated. To replace expensive!!! This design gives be preservation hope. We have a very open concept kichen family and hope to make it more but this tile butts up against a Bruce plank oak floor again, passé' so they did you make the decision to retain the floor and incorporate with other floors treatments? Thanks!

Thanks for your question Judy. The owners loved the flooring and wanted to keep it. We had to patch and match certain areas during the renovation. This flooring is everywhere in the open plan concept and changed at door thresholds for the bedroom and bath on the first floor, therefore the transition is pretty smooth.

There was a photo of a kitchen with deep blue cabinetry and now I cannot find it! Can anyone help?

Hi Sivler55, I can't recall a kitchen with deep blue cabinetry. Hopefully someone else may know.
