Cohasset Kitchen Redesign

When Kitchen & Bath Details was asked to work on a kitchen remodeling project for this Cohasset client we loved the directive – take a small kitchen in a historic home, open it up a bit, provide some seating, an amazing fireplace and keep it cozy! Our designers began Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in white with a low sheen enamel with absolute black honed granite countertops and installed Sub-Zero & Wolf Appliances.

 

A hutch with open glass doors and lighting showcases beautiful china and adds a warm glow to the room. A desk provides an office workspace, while cozy dinners are prepared the flat screen TV allows the “chef” to catch up on the news.

Historic Kitchen Restoration, Cambridge

This project in Cambridge, MA called for a great deal of historic preservation and replication, as our client wanted to keep with the period of the home. We worked with our custom cabinet line, Plain & Fancy, to create a cabinet door style which mimicked the original wainscoting in the foyer of this striking historic home. A hand glazed latte finish was selected for the cabinetry and panels which mask the Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Both granite and wood were used for the countertops and glass front cabinets were installed at the end of the island to preserve an “academic and historical” feel for the homeowners collection of cookbooks.

We had the great fortune to remodel the Butler’s Pantry (photo below center) at the same time as the kitchen was remodeled. Glass front cabinets were used in order to open up the small space, at the same time showcasing an impressive collection of barware. The rich dark wood is consistent with the look and feel of the home’s history and setting.

Plain & Fancy with Chad Michael Peters

Recently we were brought into a kitchen renovation in Concord, MA, by our lifelong friend, designer, Chad Michael Peters. The setting, decor and the homeowners’ passion for history gave us the genre in which to work. Our mission, respect the homes colonial roots, while implementing beauty and functionality.

Kitchen & Bath Details designer, Tena and Chad collaborated to design cabinetry and trim that enhances the understated luxury of natural cherry cabinetry in a hand finished matte. Plain and Fancy Cabinets were the perfect choice to execute such an elegant cabinetry design. As a nod toward a more modern trend, there is the introduction of soft white cabinetry on the island which houses the warming oven. This is all finished in custom honed and antiqued granite counter tops. Tena's is known for her detailed eye, and the more time the homeowners spend in this kitchen their appreciation for her technical skill is growing.

There are literally thousands of tiles to choose from; for this modern traditional kitchen the elegant classic, antique subway tile in soft white, was a natural choice. A signature beaded detail made the quilted pattern behind the stove a true tile showcase.

Jill poured through hardware catalogue after catalogue until our decision was unanimous, nickel handles and drawer pulls and the fabulous Kohler faucet to add an elegant finishing touch.

The mood of any room is always set by the lighting, this is particularly important in a kitchen, where you quickly transition from the task of cooking to sitting down with your loved ones to share the events of the day. It was of utmost importance to keep the lighting fixtures consistant with the period of the home; hence the decision to install custom nickel pendant lighting.

It was a joy to be a part of this project. Kitchen redesigns allow us to infuse a home with new life and enhance the homeowners’ enjoyment of this room that is always the center of activity!

Antiqued & Distressed

Few of us are lucky enough to have incredible architectural features in our kitchens.  This home's kitchen has impressive cathedral ceilings which are intersected by wooden beams - our inspiration for this antiqued distressed kitchen.  Kitchen & Bath Details chief designer Tena Collyer used a small crown molding feature to transition the space between cabinetry and cathedral ceiling. To anchor the kitchen Tena used Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry  in a beautiful celery finish around the perimeter of the kitchen.  Taller cabinets were installed with glass doors for the purpose of showcasing the homeowners collections of vibrant pottery.  The center island, with its heirloom stain atop maple and decorative legs appears as a beloved piece of antique furniture. 

A master of space planning,Tena made excellent use of the rooms corners, angling the refrigerator and sink on opposing sides of the cook top.  Traditional beadboard is used in an unexpected way, as the backsplash and shelving for spices.

Modern Cottage Kitchen

The client, a florist, asked Kitchen & Bath Details designer, Kathy Hurlburt to create a modern cottage kitchen for her lovely home. The foundation for the cottage feel began with Plain & Fancy cabinetry in a distressed white antique with inlayed bead board styling. The upper wall cabinets have glass inserts which give the illusion of open space and allow the homeowner to infuse a pop of color with pieces from her pottery collection. Aiming for classic and fashionable, Kathy selected subway tile to compliment the granite countertops. A white, apron front farmers sink takes center stage, flanked by open shelving for the homeowner to display her plants and flowers. The modern twist comes in the form of stainless steel appliances and utilizing a rich walnut for the island.
