Kensington Avenue

This is a complete gut of a large kitchen and addition area. The home is a typical late 1800s Foursquare, and typical of those homes were small, closed rooms. In order to create a larger, open kitchen, we tore down the walls between the kitchen and an adjacent addition. From this space, I created a larger kitchen with a roomy pantry, a desk area, and an eat-in area. To create even more space, I added a bay window to the eat-in area to allow views into the backyard garden. The addition and the kitchen have different ceiling heights, so I specified the same paint colors for both areas to make the areas seem like a cohesive room. I sourced white subway tile, quartzite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and crown molding to work with the Foursquare architecture. The farmhouse sink was a find by the homeowner, and we commissioned an Amish cabinetry company to build the custom cabinets that I designed.  They are painted in Benjamin Moore Calm OC-22. Walls are Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172. All photos by Betsy Maddox.
