Traditional Rustic Kitchen
North Andover, Massachusetts
This client wanted a very traditional kitchen – something that would be in keeping with the large, existing open hearth and rustic beams in their small adjacent sitting area. Opening the kitchen and sitting space allowed a larger kitchen footprint with a big island for prep work and kids’ homework; as well as a lovely area for the kitchen table in front of the hearth. The kitchen cabinets are traditional painted white, full overlay with clean lines and minimal detail. The countertops are honed black slate on the perimeter and walnut on the island. Choosing the sharp contrast of cobalt blue appliances created a beautiful focal point at the cooktop area. A new slider allowed access to the wooded backyard and brought much needed natural light into the space.
