The Dickenson’s Kitchen project entailed the removal of two walls to expand the kitchen and bring the Family Room and a 4×7 Hallway comprised of 6 door frames into one big area. After removing the non load bearing wall where the stove and refrigerator were formerly located; we were able to add a peninsula with overhang into the family room. The stove now sits where a table and chairs lined the wall. Without touching the original wood floor we were able to tile up to the edge using a Schluter® trim to compliment the transition running the tile on a 45 degree angle in the kitchen, hallway and into the foyer. The kitchen cabinets are cherry stained in a dark finish and the granite is Crema Beach. Tumbled 3×6 marble makes for a nice contrast against the Paprika wall color. The Dickenson’s wood trim, chair rail and wood panels throughout the family room had been stained a dark walnut color; painting them white gave definition between the new cabinets flanking the fireplace, it also brought the two divided rooms together. Adding soapstone tiles over top of the old brick stack gave a much needed facelift to their gas log fireplace.
