Grand VictorianTraditional Dining Room, Boston

Looking at this home today, you would never know that the project began as a poorly maintained duplex. Luckily, the homeowners saw past the worn façade and engaged our team to uncover and update the Victorian gem that lay underneath. Taking special care to preserve the historical integrity of the 100-year-old floor plan, we returned the home back to its original glory as a grand, single family home.

The project included many renovations, both small and large, including the addition of a a wraparound porch to bring the façade closer to the street, a gable with custom scrollwork to accent the new front door, and a more substantial balustrade. Windows were added to bring in more light and some interior walls were removed to open up the public spaces to accommodate the family’s lifestyle.

    Hi there, unfortunately the dining set in this Victorian home belonged to the client, so we are unsure of the brand.

    Consider the possibilities of your kitchen cabinets. They may already be able to function as makeshift mudroom storage, or you may need to renovate them a bit. Regardless, this is a great option if you don’t have room in the entry and your kitchen has the space.

    Here's another great example of an easy built-in to replicate. (You can find "Billy" bookcases at Ikea that look very similar to these, for very little money. Ikea even carries doors just like the ones in this photo too.) By customizing the layout, and placing a cubby shelf below, this arrangement takes advantage of the huge expanse of wall here. Another bonus- the shallow depth doesn't interfere with traffic flow. (PS- Ikea's "Billy" bookcases are only about 11" deep.)
