This client is a baker by trade and was looking to upgrade their kitchen into a high-functioning test kitchen. Their historical Cleveland Heights Tudor was filled with original details, making not only functionality but aesthetic a main priority. The entire home is rooted in traditional architecture, with the original Butler pantry inspiring the kitchen renovation. To maximize space, we removed the pantry but converted the doors with the original glass into an expansive cabinet. The custom work blends seamlessly into the home, feeling like an original feature. A seating banquet bridges the kitchen to the family room, while walnut staining and Carrara countertops add a refined feel to the space. Aged brass finishes feel authentic, while the beveled white subway tile lends a classic look to the backsplash. The island seats three and is the perfect spot for eating and working. A baking prep area completes the room, finding the right balance for entertaining and working.
