Kitchen Addition to Colonial Revival HomeTraditional Kitchen, Los Angeles

This kitchen remodel / addition is of a Dutch Colonial Home originally built in 1901. Care was taken in preserving the historical charm of the home by using subway tiles, brushed nickel finishes, and framed cabinetry. The family wanted to salvage many of the original house parts and so we used a pair of stained glass windows as new cabinet fronts. The nook light and pantry door are also original. A colonnade was designed to open up the space between the dining room and kitchen yet maintain a clear separation. The columns were inspired by the porch columns but scaled for indoors.

    Thank you for your question. The columns were copied from the original columns surrounding the Dutch Colonial Revival home. The surrounding neighborhood has plenty of craftsman homes with a similar type of column that is tapered and squared. You would not see this detail in a true colonial home but this blending of styles is common in revival homes of the early 20th century.
