The owners of this Queen Anne Victorian desired a more functional floorplan, improved views to outdoor space, and a period design that would respect the original look of the home. To achieve those goals, a mudroom and bathroom were removed from the rear wall, and the bath placed instead at the opposite end of the kitchen. This allowed a bank of windows to be situated above the sink and adjacent workspace, bringing plenty of natural light into the room. Appliances and cabinetry were rearranged to provide better workflow and easier access to adjoining rooms and a deck. New custom cabinetry better reflects the period character of the house.
