Modernizing a Craftsman1

Before

BEFORE was an authentic swinging door separating the kitchen from the dining/living room areas making this space “tiny.”

After

AFTER: We framed in the door and rebuilt a matching arch opening.

Before

BEFORE: No dishwasher in 2015!! and limited counter top due to the stove being next door on the left.

Before

BEFORE: Very little counter top space for cooking preparation and never liked stoves and ovens being right next to a wall…

After

AFTER: Gorgeous farmhouse sink, beadboard ceiling for some added texture and — a dishwasher!

Modernizing a Craftsman6

Before

BEFORE: Refrigerator was just on the other side of the swinging door – so absolutely no storage or functional use of the entire wall. Back entry and door was once useful back in the 40’s, but closed the kitchen to feel minuscule.

After

AFTER: Back entry door and wall were removed to let in more light. Floors were original from 1928 and after a layer of linoleum was removed, the floors were refinished.

AFTER: Subway tile, Shaker-style cabinets, a separate cooking station, glass doors on the cabinets make this tiny space SPACIOUS!
