RAPPAHANNOCK COUNTY 1937 FARMHOUSE KITCHEN REMODEL

This 1937 farmhouse nestled in the typical rural backdrop of Rappahanncock County was chock full of challenges.
1) a low ceiling height of 84"
2) little to no natural light
3) slab on grade location
4)unlevel floor
5)exhaust of range hood
We addressed #1 ,the low ceiling height, by removing the drywall ceiling. This allowed us to expose the natural sawmill lumber from 1937. These were lightly sanded/cleaned and a light coat of polyurethane was applied
Because the kitchen had little natural light, artificial lighting was paramount. We decided that LED track lighting strategically placed was essential. Additionally, we added LED undercabinet lighting and LED strip lighting to all floating shelves. Also, due to low natural light, the cabinet paint color had to be carefully selected as the natural light that did illuminate was from the North, casting a "blue" hue on anything white. Warm hues were essential in this kitchen. Sherwin Williams "Neutral Ground", although fairly dark in hue alone, became the perfect color selection for the cabinetry resulting in a warm off white tone...no starkness at all.
The concrete slab on which the kitchen was located was out of level. We added floor leveler before tiling
The Zephyr hood had to be exhausted to the outside. This back wall was against a crawl space; careful maneuvering with an L-shaped duct plan allowed to us to exhaust to the outside.
In addition to our well-appointed Miele built in refrigerator and induction freestanding range, we also decided to incorporate a U-Line Beverage Center in the niche under the stairwell. This eliminates the need to store beverages in our refrigerator (who wants to open a refrigerator door each time you want a bottled water or a glass of wine?). We love our U-Line...we had one at our previous house ten years ago. Since we could not bring it with us, we bought a new one for our new kitchen!
