For one antique farmhouse in Loudon, New Hampshire, we proved that sometimes you have to take a step or two backward in order to move forward. These homeowners had dreamed of a new kitchen for years – not just to improve the dated finishes and cumbersome layout, but to accommodate the friends and family they hosted regularly. Through the design process it became evident that the first floor bathroom was destined for demolition. It was only after a new bathroom was created between the house and attached barn were we able to maximize the available space for this kitchen remodel.
As with many antique properties, it was important to the homeowners that the new design compliment the character of the home they had grown to love. Not only were we able to fabricate custom cabinetry to support the existing enamel sink, but two sections of built-in cabinetry were salvaged, refinished, and maintained as well. Flush inset cabinetry, granite countertops, penny tile backsplash, bridge faucet, rustic hickory open shelving supported by antique decorative brackets all contribute to this successful farmhouse kitchen remodel. Professional appliances and layers of light add the finishing touches to make this gorgeous space as functional as it is beautiful.
