Built 1916
Liz Buckingham and John Owens
We remodeled the kitchen/breakfast nook/bathroom to match the Arts and Crafts style of our 1916 home. We achieved this look through custom rift oak cabinetry, hand-made tile, soapstone counters, and period-inspired light switches. Our breakfast nook features a table designed by John and a custom booth. We moved the plumbing stack to create an integrated main kitchen space out of two awkwardly separated spaces. We used reconditioned radiators and a kick-toe heater to replace a broken baseboard heat system. We also created separate cooking and baking zones so that both chefs can work in the kitchen without getting in each other’s way.
