2006 Best Kitchen Remodel over $100,000

The owners of this 18th century colonial wanted a highly functional and interesting space. The original early 1800s timber frame was exposed and cleaned up and the second floor space above was removed to relieve the cramped ceiling height. The flooring was reclaimed beech from a factory in New Bedford with the scars from machinery wheels left in to reflect the woods natural patina. The plaster was tinted with dry pigment and sealed with three coats of clear finish. The perimeter counters are concrete etched with layers of different color acid washes. The cabinetry was painted by a decorative painter showing texture and a layered color technique. the backsplashes are tile murals in the style of mid 18th century painter Rufus Porter. Overlooking the kitchen is a home office balcony that gives visitors an overview of the activity and vibrancy of the overall space below. This project is stunning in its artistic and colorful detail. Every surface has been thoughtfully designed and crafted.
