This year-round house sits on a rocky shoulder of a New England cove. The house is oriented East to West, allowing a procession of rooms to gradually culminate in the spectacular ocean view to the East. The dramatic siting of the house against the water’s edge recalls a ship’s prow jutting into the ocean. The house responds to its natural environment as well as the Shingle Style tradition popular to the region. Photography by Robert Benson

Tiffany also added a second top row of cabinets to increase storage space while adhering to HOA footprint restrictions. And since function and accessibility for all family members was important, a small utility cabinet with ladder was added for easy access to the higher areas. The ceiling’s ball pendant with yoke hanger construction offers dramatic and decorative elements that play off luxurious Breccia Capraia marble that extends up the backsplash and around the window.

Kitchen - victorian kitchen idea in Chicago

Victorian kitchens feature ornate detailing, rich colors and plenty of old-fashioned charm that hearkens back to the period of Queen Victoria’s reign, from 1837 to 1901. In general, these spaces make use of dark greens, creamy blues and gold or silver accents to create a mood that’s at once elegant and full of warmth. While you search for Victorian kitchen ideas to incorporate in your home, allow the following design tips to guide you.

1. Use Copper Accents

Invest in a set of copper pots and pans for some functional and gorgeous Victorian kitchen decor. Store them from a hanging pot rack or a simple bar above your range.

2. Opt for Colorful Cabinetry

Don’t be afraid of a little color; paint your cabinets robin’s egg blue or British racing green for an elegant look.

3. Install Butcher Block

Butcher block countertops are great for baking and prep work, and will give your kitchen the period charm you’re looking for.

4. Mosaic Tile Backsplash

Modern Victorian kitchens give old-fashioned details a contemporary pop, as with a statement mosaic tile backsplash. Go black and white for a chic look or incorporate charming country colors like green, red and blue.

5. Use an Apron Front Sink

Farmhouse and Victorian style overlap quite a bit, and an apron front sink is the type of hardworking fixture that would fit right in with either look.

6. Choose Ornate Fixtures

The key is to balance functional materials and design with intricate detailing. A long-necked kitchen faucet with knobbed handles would pair perfectly with a simple apron sink.

7. Chic White Marble

You can also take things in a turn-of-the-century Spanish or Italian direction with white marble countertops, black cabinetry and shiny gold hardware.

8. Use a Table for an Island

To really nail English country style, opt for a freestanding table instead of a built-in island. Rustic, solid wood dining tables provide extensive space for prep work and look gorgeous contrasted with marble counters.

9. Stained Glass Windows

Victorian era kitchens are also marked by their gorgeous stained glass windows or clear, decorative panels. If you’ve already got them, lucky you! If not, they might be just the thing to push your design to the next level.

10. Herringbone Wood Floors

Herringbone wood floors were common in Victorian houses, and will give your kitchen undeniable elegance and character for years to come.
