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.
One of the most dramatic design changes that Katie initiated was the integration of the extensive outdoor patio with a (soon-to-be) newly refurbished kitchen. Accordion French doors not only showcase the manicured lawn when closed, but can also be effortlessly opened, making the kitchen feel as though it itself is en plein-air.
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.
