Classic Kitchen

The owners of this Winchester Victorian knew their dark, dated kitchen (complete with red-tiled floor and old wooden cabinets) did not measure up to the rest of their well-appointed, period home. They asked Feinmann to improve the functionality and beauty of the kitchen without changing the existing footprint, add new storage and counter space, and create a spot for casual dining.
The end result is a classic design, combining white, green, and wood tones. Off-white cabinets and crisp crown molding create a striking contrast to the 5” mahogany floorboards, and various green-colored accents throughout the room tie the space together visually. These include green granite counter tops, small green accent tiles arranged in a band and nestled among white subway tiles for the backsplash, and light sage wall color. The existing wood stove was replaced with a grand wood-burning fireplace, giving the room an entirely new look.
The decision was made very early on to remove a wall between the kitchen and a separate pantry, to visually open up the kitchen. Two wall ovens and a microwave now occupy that former pantry space. An island at the center of the kitchen provides for additional work surface and a place for casual seating. Under-cabinet lights improve functionality and angled recessed spotlights draw attention to the room’s striking fireplace.

Do you get enough light from 4"? Why did you switch to smaller size?

So here is what our design staff says: The 4" spots are more aesthetically pleasing in most spaces plus with the latest LED technology being used for task lighting (i.e. under cabinets), you can still get plenty of light in your space. Hope that answers your question.

Top down bottom up pleated shades. They could be Hunter Douglas as Feinmann says but there are other manufacturers as well.

Because you can not see the strings of a pleated shade and with out being able to zoom in on the pic, I would say these are cellular shades, with top down, bottom up option. Hunter Douglas is one of the best manufactures of such shades, but they are available from many manufacturer.

What is the cabinet paint colour called? What colour is the hardware? - We have an old house, finally getting to do the kitchen!! We did Herbal Green walls ( painted over the panelling) and want to do a crisp clean white to trim and cabinets. I'm thinking of Butterrum Granite for the countertop. The floor is a mix of beiges. Thank you... Love this kitchen!!
