The base cabinet run along the wall with the window was not deep enough to incorporate a dishwasher. The base cabinets had to be replaced. They loved the look of the existing painted cabinets. The wall cabinets would remain and we had custom base cabinets made to match, including the bread boards. The dishwasher, to the right of the sink, has a wood panel to match the door style and a “bread board” as a handle to keep the original detail. The tall pantry cabinet at the end was also increased in depth to maximize storage. New brushed nickel knobs were installed that have an “earthquake” lock on all cabinets. The double porcelain sink was replaced with a new under mount double sink. The wall faucet was replaced with a Chicago wall faucet to keep that original look. A “soda fountain” style filtered water dispenser was added to the right of the faucet.
