Arts & Crafts Kitchen with a Modern Twist in Arlington

2011 NARI CAPITAL COTY MERIT AWARD WINNER
This couple had put up with their run down split level home for years. They lived in a convenient Arlington neighborhood within walking distance to the DC metro and suburban lifestyle. But they’d had it with their small, unattractive kitchen. They wanted a new look that opened the space up and offered a seamless connection to the rest of the first floor.
Starting with small, dark 10’ x 10’ kitchen, the design team at Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes went to work. First, they moved an inside wall 18” into the adjacent living room. This provided added space for a new refrigerator, double wall oven and warming drawer. This kept all tall elements out of sight and created more counter space throughout the rest of the kitchen.
Next, a partition between the kitchen and dining room was removed and got replaced with a large double side peninsula. Topped with an exotic granite counter, it is home to a 36” gas cooktop and wine chiller. It also includes glass display cabinets for the homeowner’s prized china.
Use of taller and contrasting dark glazed cabinetry and spice cherry has accomplished the Arts & Crafts look the homeowners desired. A glass tile backsplash, hard wood floors and prairie style windows contribute to the theme as well. Finally, large windows and a skylight brighten up what was once a dark space.
The extreme makeover of this kitchen has been such an inspiration to their neighbors that the clients are asked to show it off over and over.
