INFORMATION

The house was built in 1910 but unfortunately updated. The most recent update was from the 1960's. A contemporary kitchen in a 1910 house looks very out of place and common. But bringing the kitchen back to 1910 is quite difficult and would require removing all the cabinets which I did not want to do.

I therefore took the easier route and brought the kitchen back to the 1920's - more in line with today's kitchens.

Context and flow are important when guests go from room to room. You can't have a period parlor and a modern kitchen. And if you have a period kitchen with a modern refrigerator it will jump out at you as not belonging and ruin all your efforts.

I therefore designed a conversion kit for making a modern refrigerator into an antique looking icebox.

Yes I do have a microwave but it's hidden from view!
