2019 National CotY Award Winner, Residential Kitchen $30,000 to $60,000
These homeowners asked for a functional kitchen with adequate work surfaces and storage for everyday family life and their baking hobby. To honor the character of this 1920s Bungalow and preserve the adjacent dining room built-ins, the space was maximized within the confines of the existing footprint. Plumbing was relocated and the exterior wall rebuilt to accommodate three new windows. The existing maple hardwood flooring was revived after removing two layers of sheet vinyl and an asbestos abatement. The built-in cabinet surrounding the refrigerator was designed as a style element and fulfilled the homeowners’ request to incorporate the color green. A baking prep station and floating shelves were added to the existing pantry, giving the homeowners added workspace.
