Bringing new life to an old family home.

This 1800’s farmhouse had been in the family for years and the kitchen was just one part of a much larger whole home renovation.  Since the family had grown up in this house, maintaining the character and charm was as important as updating the space.  Take a look at the result of the beautiful remodel by #CapitolKB designer Adrienne. The farmhouse details, charming collectibles, and an open floor plan make for a bright and breezy kitchen that invites friends and family to stay and chat.

Adrienne cleverly reworked the layout, adding fresh details (butcher block, open shelving, and new appliances) and restoring original features (hardwood floors) to their former glory. Wendy, the client is a collector so having adequate storage as well as display space was very important to her.  The cherry bookcase style accent cabinets gave her the display space she needed.

The spacious island offers prep space as well as a central gathering spot for the homeowners’ large family. The island’s cherry counter top not only stands up to daily wear and tear, but it also mimics an antique farmhouse table.
