Kitchen renovation in 1918 farmhouse


A few before and after photos of our long awaited reno. We did the design and most of the finish work - but used a great local cabinet company - Woodecor - for the cupboards
Before, 1950's disfunctional cabinets all on one wall.  No ventilation and old uninsulated windows and walls.

Some of the details include copper sinks and taps, granite countertops with a 'leather' finish and natural tin ceiling.  Also, no upper cabinets, backsplash is 'v' groove paneling and countertops are 30" deep on this wall.

Pantry cabinets finished to look like refinished 'old' cupboard.  These are the only upper cabinets in the kitchen.

Natural tin ceiling and a new light fixture that I loved the style of but not the color (brass) so I painted it to match the cabinet hardware.

Added a 'french' patio door where the window was, put in bulkheads for new duct work to make a tray ceiling for the painted tin and opened up the wall from the kitchen another 2 feet for better flow between the two rooms.
