After living in their charming Southeast Portland family home for many years, our homeowners noticed their older appliances and cabinetry started to break down in the well-loved kitchen. The style and period of the house were the jumping-off points for the design aesthetic of the kitchen, and the beautiful arched window with apron-front sink remains the focal point of the space.
Homeowner Wish List
- A new kitchen that fit the style and character of their 1931 home
- Feature modern conveniences, efficient appliances, functional cabinetry, and lighting
- To create practical storage and work zones within the existing walls
Project Outcome and Results
- While the footprint did not drastically change, we utilized the area better.
- The kitchen is truly the heart of the home, with archways leading to the rest of the house.
- Installed full-height cabinetry with organizational components
- Designated a beverage area with a built-in, undercabinet refrigerator, wine rack, and glassware storage
- Added interest by using an ogee edge on the island countertop
- The clients love sage green and used the color in the beveled glass backsplash against the beautiful quartzite countertops.
