Kitchen remodel designed by Today’s StarMark Custom Cabinetry & Furniture, using StarMark Cabinetry’s Stratford door style in Oak finished in Java. Doors have optional single furniture pegs.
The existing kitchen decor dated back to the early eighties and showed years of neglect. An obtrusive wall cabinet was mounted above a peninsula, blocking the view and making the kitchen feel tiny and boxed in.
We wanted the new to blend with the old. We selected a door style that matched the interior doors in the house. A dark stain on the cabinetry complements the stainless steel tin ceiling and cabinetry door insets, and it added a contemporary feel.
The cabinetry was accented with traditional bead moulding—a design element found throughout the house—in Nutmeg to tie in with existing millwork.
A peninsula with an overhang provided additional prep area and storage as well as a dining area.
Stacked cabinets give the homeowner a place to add punched tin inserts for added vintage charm, as well as storage for items that aren’t used often.
