A Modern Mission

The challenge in this Ottawa South home was to update a turn-of-the-century home's kitchen, preserving the Arts and Craft styling while providing the modern conveniences required by today's lifestyles. The classic lines and warm colours combine to create a functional and inviting space.

The upper cabinets do double duty, offering long-term storage space as well as providing extra lighting. A salvaged antique door with sandblasted glass, replaced an inappropriate modern door. A custom cherry heat grill was crafted and stained to matched for the stool side of the peninsula. With careful attention to detail, the painted and damaged mouldings in the dining & kitchen area were replaced with new ones that were finished with stain & amber shellac to help them blend seamlessly with the old ones. Mission accomplished.

This project involved purchased of salvaged an antique door, energy saving dimmers and reproduced moulding with shellac finish.
