WILLCO, Portland, Oregon
This new kitchen integrates modern amenities and details while still maintaining the historic character of the 1913 Craftsman style home. New stainless steel appliances, an exposed hood, concrete gray quartz countertops and the herringbone backsplash add to classic details such as the farmhouse sink, school house lighting, traditional Craftsman crown moldings and white shaker-style cabinets. The custom cabinets maximize space for storage and improve access from all four entrances. The wall separating the kitchen and adjacent dining room was removed, and a peninsula incorporated to offer yet more storage and a family-friendly space for entertaining.
