PROJECT FEATURE: 1950’s Armatage Contemporary Kitchen and Dining Remodel

1950’s kitchens need love too… and make great remodels! These homeowners contacted Castle for help on their kitchen remodel. The biggest wish-list item was a larger and more functional kitchen layout (with expanded views into the previously completed rear addition/dining room).

After some conceptual design concepts were assessed, we chose to keep this kitchen’s existing footprint and extend the site lines into the rear dining space with a new drywall opening. We expanded the function of the kitchen by wrapping the peninsula around into the dining room with an additional pantry space for kitchen overflow storage. Each cabinet was well thought out for the homeowners use of the space to include functional storage accessories like plate divides, utensil pull-outs, and trash/recycle bins.

Working with the designer, the homeowners found a beautiful balance of some contemporary aesthetics like the overall color scheme combined with some classic elements such as the detailed cabinetry and herringbone tile backsplash. One of our favorite details in the kitchen is the new tile floor that continues into the dining room. The wood texture plank tile adds depth and texture as well as contrasts nicely with the softer and refined finishes above. New Cambria quartz countertops, new cabinetry, herringbone tile backsplash, new tile floors, custom lighting, and new plumbing fixtures complete the space. The new transitional styled kitchen can grow with the family for many years to come. With a swap out of some furniture the whole space can transition between contemporary or traditional. Truly timeless!

PRODUCT FEATURE:  Wood Texture Plank Tile


As seen in the project feature, Wood Texture Plank Tile gives homeowners the best of both worlds (tile and hardwood). Sourced from American Olean, the Historic Bridge line has a special glazing over the top which adds to the genuine effect by creating a slight sheen along the graining. But unlike hardwood, this tile can withstand water! We love this product!!


Refer someone to us (whom we employ for at least 6 months) and we’ll give you $1,000 in free remodeling. Expires: NEVER!
