Kitchen Remodel in Carlisle
Details and Behind the Scenes
This busy Carlisle family brought us in for a kitchen remodel when the high-end appliances in their early 2000s kitchen started to fail and require replacement. It was an excellent time to address some of the layout issues plaguing them in their daily cooking routines and overhaul the kitchen layout. Why put new appliances in places you never wanted them to be? Out with the cramped nooks and strange angles!
Though this house is less than twenty years old, it was built to look like a farmhouse from the early 1900s. Because this is the aesthetic throughout the home, the kitchen remodel needed to keep with that style. We are used to updating old homes and blending modern techniques with vintage style, but updating a more modern historic style home provided its unique challenges. For example, finding a good match for flooring for our project was a unique challenge and required some hunting because we needed to match the product from the previous project. Once we got it right, the result was sensational!
This kitchen and main floor overhaul was a pleasure to design, execute and admire. It includes drool-worthy custom built-ins like recipe bookshelves and period-accurate built-in china cabinets and seating. The dining room window seat will welcome many for morning coffee and a serene view through the mullioned window, and the view from the kitchen sink is second to none.
We love the color palette and lighting choices! Stunning pendulum fixtures light up the workspace and set the mood! The cobalt island cabinets feature classic design and 2022 sensibility with gorgeous craftsmanship and thoughtfully placed outlets and appliances. A central island provides ample storage, practical counter seating, and improved workflow. A custom range hood and tile backsplash round out this dream kitchen.
Try not to covet this mudroom! We leveled up the entire space into a dream command center for the whole family. Starting with ample custom seating and storage, this smart space contains and organizes the sprawl of stuff that comes with busy kids and busy lives. The main floor laundry is just around the corner and keeps messes contained. We love the authentic look and supreme function of the laundry tub. There is lots of extra space for hanging laundry, organizing projects, or even some yoga or exercise!
