A goal for this kitchen remodel was to respect the history and architecture of the home's late-1800 design. Katie wanted to keep the integrity of the home and incorporate classic and durable materials with an emphasis on quality craftsmanship and interesting details. The homeowners wanted to maximize their counter space, so all appliances are concealed in appliance cabinets, like this espresso cupboard! This not only keeps the appliances clean and out of the way, but allows for countertops to be used to their full potential.
Since our pantries were an uncommon size, we had no choice but to invest in custom doors. We found a great local store in our area that was able to accommodate our needs and for a very reasonable price. We paid about $575 per door. And, we were more than happy to support a small business in our town. We chose tiles that were on a mesh backing, making it easier to install the sheets than single tile, one at a time. Playing up the white and grey colors in the countertops, we chose a Grecian white interlocking tile, again keeping everything neutral but not sterile looking
The built-in kitchen countertop is largely a 20th-century phenomenon. Wood, marble, and the occasional metal counters usually appeared only in the pantry, even in the most stylish 19th-century homes. When it was present, the worktop was usually a dry sink or a wood table, both of which endure as inspiration for the vintage-look counters we prefer today.
