After Orfield Design

The old kitchen was a dark and ugly room, but the rest of the home was in pristine condition with beautiful trim and woodwork, cased arches, windows, and built-in cabinetry befitting the homes original 1927 build. They wanted a pristine kitchen and mudroom area with a complementary style, reflecting their taste in furnishings and modern cooking amenities.

To achieve this we removed one wall and filled in two doorways for better layout. Plumbing and the homes boiler heating pipes that served the 2nd floor were rerouted. Standing radiators changed to space-saving baseboard and coil fan hot water toe-kick heaters. Due to the range hoods CFM size, make-up air was installed to code. In this particular home, the creation of a large galley kitchen design allows many to move freely through the space, performing everyday activities in each area and having access to everything they need.

By installing pantry, desk area, hardwood flooring (toothed into the existing home floors), hand-milled trim, painted Inset custom cabinets, Cambria Blackwood countertops, tile backsplash, high-end stainless steel appliances, a pot-filler in the niche behind the stove, a foot pedal controlled sink faucet and water purification system - their wishes came true.

This once neglected kitchen, in the heart of an esteemed structure, has now become a timeless showpiece, treasured and enjoyed by this loving family, their friends, and future generations.
