This 1883 Historic Hill home was in desperate need of a kitchen remodel to match the rest of its beautiful Victorian charm.  The old floor plan was not functional and did not utilize the space to its full capacity.  The house also did not have a bathroom on the main floor, and because there was ample space for a large kitchen, eat in area and some leftover, a powder room was also added.

Attention to traditional details like ribbed glass, marble accents and custom baseboards to match the rest of the home made this project extra special.  The floor plan now places the sink with a beautiful view of the backyard and creates a functional work flow area for optimal kitchen use.  Because the homeowners also entertain a lot and have grandchildren over often, a kitchen with seating was also important.


There is now an island with seating and an eat in area for quick meals and coffee talk.  What was once a closet was also converted to a butler’s pantry for more entertaining and storage space.  Overall, the end result is a modern-day kitchen, eat-in dining area and powder room with traditional styling and details which make that area of the house as beautiful in character as the rest of this 133 year old home.
