These homeowners like bold colors and chose deep blue cabinets for their kitchen renovation in this 1890 Capitol South row house. We removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create one large entertaining space. To bring more natural light and provide sight lines from the front to the back of the row house, we added new windows to the back wall and moved the opening to the other side as a full-light door.
Kitchen features include:
The door to the deck was originally on the right side. We moved it to the left and added new windows to bring more light into the kitchen.
The countertop is Statuario Bianco Polarstone. The mosaic backsplash brings together the blue and white shades in the kitchen. A pale gray tile floor provides a neutral backdrop. The wall cabinets are also pale gray, but we used a warmer dark wood for the buffet.
During the renovation, we discovered a badly damaged tin ceiling. As a tribute, the homeowner hired a faux painter to copy the original tin pattern on a piece of wood that they placed above the island. Our gift to the client was to capture a piece of the historic tin in a tray.
