Project 1778-3

Designer: CBR
Home Style: Victorian
Design Style: Classic
Project Completion Date: May 2013

Looking to update their kitchen in design and functionality, but still maintain the character and era of the existing home, the homeowners of this 1887 Victorian in St. Paul came to Castle to turn their dysfunctional kitchen into a space they could truly enjoy. To create a more efficient work triangle, the appliances were relocated and the cabinets were increased. The range was moved from the island to the exterior wall, and by adding a tile backsplash, niche and mantle, it creates a main focal point in the room. The Soapstone countertops add some vintage character to the kitchen. New custom cabinets with a simpler Shaker-style
door and a vintage yellow color, create a bright & fresh space. Meanwhile open shelving was put in next to the fridge to showcase some of the homeowner’s dishes and glassware. The change is drastic and better suits the homeowner’s needs, all while still maintaining original integrity of the home itself.
