Ron McNeil Kitchen Renovation
This estate home was built in 1906. With so much amazing character to the home, we knew this would be a special project. The homeowners collect and own an architectural antique shop and wanted to keep the original style of the home.
We started with removing the old cabinets as they were not original to the home but decided to leave a feature wall of cabinets off the kitchen as they were original and in great shape. The homeowner wanted a retro style basket weave flooring laid down to blend the old with the new; he also wanted to leave the original ceiling and all the craftsman doors and trims as they are throughout the home and really pop against the white kitchen.
The bright-white cabinets brought so much light into the room and made it feel contemporary with keeping the farmhouse style. The lower cabinets are all done in a beadboard country look with the uppers having glass in the doors to show off more antiques. We tiled the entire wall in a beveled subway tile for a clean look that allowed the wood to accent through the space. The final touches were adding original corbels to the shelf and to the island overhang to add the homeowner’s style to the space.
