Past Meets Present
This family of four host many family gatherings at their home. The 1920’s Baltimore kitchen design needed an update. The homeowners wanted to modernize the kitchen design yet keep the architectural integrity of the home.
The project required gutting the kitchen down to the stone walls. They desired to create a more open and expansive kitchen, but stay within the original footprint. Several challenges including adding a door to the garage through a 16″ stone wall and upgrading the plumbing and electric to include two large radon pipes and supply lines in the walls going up to the second floor. This required more wall space. We hid the pipes in the wall next to the arched opening. Part of our solution was to create an arched opening in a bearing wall, but match the trim features that existed. The previous butler’s pantry was incorporated in the overall design to expand the space and make the seated island the central focus.
Baltimore Kitchen Design
The beautiful floor incorporates mahogany-stained hardwood with black and white marble tile and the island is sporting an elegant natural walnut top. This Baltimore kitchen design seamlessly blends with the original architecture, but makes this family’s kitchen more functional and efficient.
Signature Kitchen and Bath Magazine featured this Baltimore kitchen design in their magazine, which showcases kitchens and bath remodels throughout the nation. This kitchen also won the Maryland Home Builders Association Award of Excellence.
