Kitchen Remodeling: A Craftsman-Style Kitchen Design

This kitchen remodel is an ode to craftsman style and 21st century convenience. From the cabinets to the vent hood, this kitchen evokes the charming characteristics of this beloved style.


Come Together
The owner of this historic landmark rescued it from the verge of demolition. The previous owners envisioned condos in its place, but the new owner and fellow residents persuaded local officials to deny the permit to tear it down. And a gorgeous period-inspired kitchen remodel followed.

Get Current
Kitchen construction in 1912 didn't include cooking ventilation. A new custom stucco hood (with a vent cleverly hidden in the soffit) provides a modern convenience and pays homage to the home's Craftsman style.

Make a Splash
Below the custom-built hood is a recessed backsplash niche decked in diamond-shape tiles that complement the room's color scheme. Together with the hood, it creates a subtle yet elegant focal point.

Focus on Function
A farmhouse sink centered beneath a stretch of windows with a gorgeous view makes washing dishes enjoyable. Counter space on either side of the sink provides ample room for food prep.

Disguise Appliances
In keeping with the kitchen's historical Craftsman design, paneling that matches the surrounding cabinetry disguises the refrigerator and two freezer drawers, blending them in with the surrounding textures.

Get in the Zone
Food storage and appliances coexist on this wall to minimize footsteps during meal prep. A pullout basket to the left of the freezer drawers provides stylish storage for onions and potatoes.

Start Brewing
Stacking the built-in cappuccino machine atop the stainless-steel double oven creates a cohesive look. Owning the splurge-worthy appliance is like having an in-house barista -- without the daily charge.

Include a Garage
An appliance garage built flush with the counter keeps the slow cooker and blender a short slide away. When not in use, the appliances and outlet hide behind a pull-down door that matches the surrounding cabinetry.

The countertop's edge keeps
in step with Craftsman style.

Count the Details
Vein-cut travertine countertops in a silvery hue add a striking natural element to the space. True to Craftsman design, a thick standard profile edge highlights the counter's veining and color variation.

Dine In
Whether used as an intimate dining spot or a place for guests to gather, this built-in peninsula table offers the convenience of an eat-in kitchen without taking up much floor space.
