Vintage home with a new kitchen

The challenges with a vintage home are twofold. The house is OLD and it is usually a series of chopped up rooms. This home, built in the late 1800’s had both of those issues. It was out of plumb, multiple little spaces and limited function for the homeowners. How do you make a new kitchen function and look appropriate today while still maintaining the charm of a vintage home?
We decided to be aggressive with this remodel and basically removed all the interior walls from the dining to the back of the old laundry porch. With a large space to work with we were able to create a highly functional kitchen with loads of room for two cooks and guests who want to hang out.
The choice of a painted shaker cabinet and the addition of a few sage green accent cabinets created the appropriate vintage feel in this kitchen. The addition of the honed natural quartz countertops and grey subway tiles give it a contemporary feel while the reclaimed wood for the shelves and custom made steel brackets add a textural element to the room. The kitchen also features many organizing features in the cabinets. The Induction cooktop and separate speed oven make cooking state of the art! The clients love how this kitchen looks and functions and I have to say I am very pleased myself!
