This homeowner, who loves to bake and travels often, wanted more space Contemporary Cabinets and a classic French design in her kitchen, part of a midcentury addition to a turn-of-the-last-century cottage. Designer Kristine Robinson wasn’t afraid to knock down walls to make it happen. The new kitchen has a roomier layout, an integrated home office and a powder room nearby. "Photos by Katrina Mojzesz BEFORE: The old kitchen was situated inside a midcentury addition to the home. Robinson initially wanted to give the space a face-lift, but the project quickly evolved into a full-scale tear-down operation. She knew that the previous addition had several structural problems (the floor was slanted, the space wasn’t well-insulated and got cold in the winter, and the structure was rickety), so she decided Contemporary Cabinets to gut the space. “We thought about keeping it and fixing it, but it made more sense to start from scratch since it wasn’t ideal to begin with,” she says.Robinson Interiors2AFTER: Robinson chose light-colored, 20-by-20-inch porcelain tile for the floor and a creamy white paint for the walls to enlarge the space. She opted for a tile floor over wood because of its durability and to maintain the kitchen’s open and airy design. “If we put a lot of wood surfaces in there, it wouldn’t have felt as French and feminine,” she says. BEFORE: Space, or the lack of it, was a major issue, along with outdated finishes Contemporary Cabinets and appliances. “It was so tiny, and she had an ancient microwave and old electric range there,” Robinson says. The kitchen’s finishes were neutral, aside from the upper cabinets. The countertops were laminate, and the range and sink were right next to each other. The kitchen’s small U-shaped layout didn’t leave enough room for the homeowner to bake.AFTER: Here’s the new layout. Robinson says part of the challenge in this new design was making the most of limited space. “Even though we added a bigger addition, it’s not a huge kitchen by today’s standards,” she says. “We fit a lot into a relatively small space.” The homeowner is fond of baking, especially cookies around Christmastime. Robinson says Contemporary Cabinets the kitchen was designed to accommodate this hobby, from the cabinet features to the layout. “We did a lot of inserts in her cabinets specifically for her baking supplies,” she says. These inserts include spice racks, a pullout to house her KitchenAid mixer and a baking station next to the range with cookie sheets. Robinson kept the island close to the range to keep prep time efficient. “It really is a baking kitchen,” she says.Robinson Interiors2One of the homeowner’s biggest requests was an integrated home office in her new kitchen layout. The adjacent banquette, wrapped in linen in a French blue, offers a reading nook beneath Contemporary Cabinets the window and has drawers for file storage. Robinson Interiors1Robinson replaced the kitchen’s dated laminate countertops with Giallo Fiesta granite from Let’s Get Stone’d, a local granite shop. The backsplash features the same porcelain tile as the floors plus glass mosaic inserts that match the backsplash in the butler’s pantry. The cabinet hardware has an oil-rubbed bronze finish. Robinson also included custom treatments with inverted pleats and white trim on each of the kitchen’s windows to enhance the home’s Craftsman style.Robinson InteriorsAfter Robinson nixed the old addition in favor of a new one, she realized that Contemporary Cabinets she would have space to give the homeowner something the first floor lacked: a powder room. “What was the old kitchen is now the room’s footprint,” she says. Robinson also squeezed in a laundry room, which had previously been in the basement. “She loves the new livability of the main floor now,” she says. The powder room has bifold doors that conceal the homeowner’s washer and dryer, and is located right across from the butler’s pantry.Robinson InteriorsThe butler’s pantry, which sits across from the powder room and occupies the space where the refrigerator once was, is an extension of the kitchen’s elegant design scheme. Contemporary Cabinets Robinson included cherry cabinets to match the hardwood and furniture in the homeowner’s dining room, and gave the area a decorative touch with a mosaic backsplash. “It’s a nice transition into the formal dining room,” she says."
