Historic cottage renovation kitchen

TreHus worked from photographs of this home dating back to the early 1900's and with the Minneapolis Historic Preservation Commission to ensure that we honored the home's spirit and heritage throughout the project. Old-world craftsmanship and materials such as the tongue-and- groove boards, beadboard accents on the cabinetry, subway tile, carerra marble, and wide plank pine flooring authentically bring back this home's former glory.

The wood on the walls is just clear alder with a clear sealer on it. We didn't do any pickling or anything on them. Here's an article on how to do pickling if you want to do it: http://www.diynetwork.com/home-improvement/whitewashing-and-pickling-techniques/index.html

How do you like having the sink in the island? I'm considering having my sink there, but can't decide.

It might work....the nice thing about pine is that it's relatively smooth, so it can look good when painted. However, if it's knotty that can look iffy (can take away from the smooth, clean look of painted cabinets). Also, if they are already finished, that could affect how well the paint adheres. I would be careful if you are thinking of painting your cabinets yourself - you need to pick the right kind of paint to make sure you don't get all kinds of peeling and chipping down the road, so I would recommend having a professional at least take a look at it.

Most jurisdictions do not require ventilation for a gas range. I'm not saying it's a good idea, I'm just saying it's not against the law.

This particular project would seem pretty easy to vent, since it appears to be on an outside wall. The client must not be as messy as we are in my kitchen.

I have never worked in an area that does not have a code that requires a vent for a gas range. However, there are pop-up vents often used with these models. I often use them when putting a range in front of a window. Love them. You don't see them unless they are being used. Many pop-up vents are used on islands also.
I love elements of this kitchen. It is so inviting!!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Color Breezes Into Cottage Style
The approach: cottage kitchen elements. Open shelving, freestanding furniture and beadboard help to define kitchens in this style. That holds true in this one, despite the brilliant red stools and the red painted walls in the connecting space.
