This house was built in 1950, its architecture has a strong mid-century modern perspective. Unfortunately, the before kitchen really paid no homage to the architecture or style of the house. It had cherry cabinetry, brown, mosaic glass backsplash, and travertine tiled countertops. The good news is that the island had a great butcher block top, with a copper prep sink, the layout was fab and the cabinetry was good quality and had a simple shaker door style. We demoed the backsplash and countertops and replaced with slabs of Super White dolomite. We removed the range hood and replaced with a hood insert that was framed, drywalled, and painted the same as the wall color (Benjamin Moore Winter White OC-21) to give a clean, Scandinavian feel. The only modification to the cabinets was new paint (Benjamin Moore Anchor Gray 2126-30) and new matte black hardware.
