1890s Country Kitchen
Kitchen sink for 77 Shouldice. Very nice. I will see where I can find one if you like. I love these sinks and the way the countertops come over the edges!
The kitchen we are trying to design for is a large open space with one piece, an armoire built into the wall in pine, in the middle of one wall that will remain. All else will be replaced. I am including this picture to show how a large harvest table might be used as an island/eating area instead of an island proper.
A nice piece, this nevertheless shows that fitting microwaves into period surroundings can be tricky.
I like this style a lot. Very likely painted pine cabinetry, the mild distressing suggests the piece is original and worn, has been taken care of.
Nice oven, likely gas, as I don't imagine they'll be wanting to stoke it with wood to get it going in the morning. Notice the muntins (cross pieces) in the upper doors.
Golden oak cabinetry in an 1890s house. Very nice, not distressed and an authentic wood for the period. The tile doesn't really work for me here, as a period detail, but I do like it. Notice the sink - a style that is seeing a renaissance even outside of period reconstruction.
Butcher block. Always nice.
I liked the tongue and groove paneling in this design.
There is not a lot that actually grabbed me from this kitchen, but I did like the light touch on the distressing. Unfortunately, the skill to distressing, which most finishers seem to ignore, is that pieces don't get worn evenly. Not all doors will be worn the same way, or as much as their neighbours.
Details of the inset drawer front and face-frame construction.
This is a style detail that I love from older houses - cabinetry built into nooks. There are likely many opportunities to use this design in this house.
The trick is getting the appliances to fit in with the era of the house and design. We don't necessarily want period pieces, but modern does not always work either.
I started here with a search for ideas for an 1890s kitchen renewal. I like the tongue and groove on the wall and the open shelving looks authentic to the era.
