New White Kitchen in this 1930’s Home

As some of you may already know, I occasionally dabble in kitchen and bath design. I have had the pleasure of working with numerous clients on a variety of projects. I have always loved and still love a white kitchen. This white kitchen is one of my favorites as it so perfectly suited the character of the 1930’s home. This kitchen had lots of little details that made it a more remarkable than your average white kitchen. Take a look at some of my favorite details from this project.


This farmhouse sink was such a special touch. We added mill-work detail around the base of the cabinet to make the area under the windows pop. I fell in love with the clients’ choice to do the bronze tone faucet and wall sconces. The added touch of warmth really tied it all together with the wood floors and neutral paint tones.

We maximized this space and still kept it pretty and fun. To do this we ran cabinetry to the ceiling with glass relief and wood interiors. We also added a narrow island for seating, extra work surface, and even more storage.

I truly love and highly recommend a custom hood in your kitchen. This beautiful piece brought into this place added so much more character. A great way to mix things up a bit in your mill-work is to use a combination of knobs and handles. The hardware used in this kitchen were a nice nod to the era of the 1935 home.

To cap off the ultimate storage in this space an entire wall of floor to ceiling mill-work was placed left of the fridge. As an extra bonus, a work station and command zone was placed to the right.

What was your favourite part of this kitchen renovation? I’d love to hear from you!

Until next time on the blog,
