Restoration and remodel of a historic 1901 English Arts & Crafts home in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles by Tim Braseth of ArtCraft Homes, completed in 2013. Space reconfiguration enabled an enlarged vintage-style kitchen and two additional bathrooms for a total of 3. Special features include a pivoting bookcase connecting the library with the kitchen and an expansive deck overlooking the backyard with views to downtown L.A. Renovation by ArtCraft Homes. Kitchen by Ikea. Staging by Jennifer Giersbrook. Photos by Larry Underhill.
The original kitchen was small and cutoff by a peninsula and was about half the size. We removed the peninsula, added an island adjusted the size of the window and closed off the stairway to increase the size of the kitchen footprint.
Walnut cabinets, a patched hardwood floor in existing maple, a black, soapstone countertop, white Kitchen Aid appliances, and a white tile backsplash come together for this warm and inviting kitchen.

In a house like this, a homey feel just feels right. This room was previously three pantries combined into one fairly large kitchen.

Complete kitchen remodel in a Craftsman style with very rich wood tones and clean painted upper cabinets. White Caesarstone countertops add a lot of light to the space as well as the new back door leading to the back yard.
