A charming cottage built in 1927 needed some serious updating in the kitchen. The most important goal was to keep the new kitchen in keeping with the original details of the house. We wanted the new kitchen to look as if it had always been in the home.

Our main objective was to remove the wall in between the Dining Room and the Kitchen to create an open concept. Since this was not a bearing wall, no replacement support beams were required. One of our favorite details were the handmade, imperfectly shaped, subway tiles utilized as a backsplash behind the cooktop and around the window. Another was the strategically placed open shelving that kept the modest sized room open and airy. Vintage elements such as the cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures, and island light with Edison bulbs, completed our Contemporary Cottage style.
