Arts and Crafts Kitchen

The decision to remodel this dark 1980s kitchen was made after living too long with a refrigerator that partially blocked the doorway to the family room and a single overhead light. The homeowners wanted a dedicated coffee area and more countertops. The starting point for the design was the homeowner's grandmothers Tiffany-style lamp. Craftsman-style Signature cabinets were chosen in a golden Cherry, and paired with green Costa Esmerelda granite. The too-deep pantry was replaced but a smaller, more efficient cabinet with roll-out shelves, which made room for coffee and a small bookshelf for cookbooks. The dining table was removed, and the countertop extended to create additional seating, and a lighter floor and additional lighting makes the space a pleasure to be in.

The too-deep refrigerator blocked anyone from entering from the family room, and the little fence on the overhang served no function except to restrain platters and a large papier mache carrot.

The granite countertop now makes a graceful bend, allowing for comfortable seating for four. The pedestal beneath is actually a cabinet, storing infrequently used cookie sheets and stock pots. The refrigerator - now countertop depth, is hidden behind the cabinetry.

This kitchen needed help! Cabinets were pine stained walnut and nearly black, the kitchen faced north with only one light fixture, and the floor was dark vinyl.

The redone kitchen kept the MicroHood, and added much appreciated countertop inches for prep. The new pantry is on the far wall - and holds as much as the larger old one - using rollouts. The coffee area doubles as the baking center.
