This Craftsman house, built in 1914, was in need of some updates. The homeowner came to Castle with the wish to update their kitchen and two bathrooms. Due to water damage, these rooms were complete remodels, being gutted to the studs with the exception of saving the windows and a few plumbing items in the upstairs bathroom.
The new kitchen layout optimized the best use of space and gave a nice working triangle. New cabinets in the Shaker Style were painted in the Sherwin Williams Hunt Club and then installed with crown molding to the top of the ceiling for a complete look. To balance the dark cabinets, a light countertop, Eternal Calcutta Gold, was chosen with the beautiful veining going through the surface. Hardware pulls in Satin Brass were selected to pull out the countertop’s gold veining. Finally, the backsplash was installed in a brick set pattern, only switching to a herringbone pattern at the stove for the focal point.
Layouts of the main and upper floor baths remained the same to cut down on costs. The main bath had a black modern hex tile for the floor and the shower surround had a glossy white imprinted subway tile in a brick set pattern to heighten the visual contrast in the small area. To give warmth to the space, the vanity and cabinet were selected in a Cherry Wood with a Wheaton Stain. All fixtures and accessories were chosen in a matte black with sharp rectangular lines to keep in step with the modern feel. Overall, every detail was carefully planned to meet the client’s needs and desires.
