The previous kitchen in this 1950's bungalow was original to the house, and while the owners knew it needed a serious upgrade, they still wanted it to compliment the look and feel of the house. They also entertained often, so the design needed to include consideration for the cooks as well as the guests. To this end, counter space was increased and a maple butcher block eating bar was included in the design.
For budgetary as well as practical reasons, a wrapped laminate door was chosen (Nevamar's Tawny Satinwood) for the cabinets, and Corian (Tumbled Glass) was selected for the work surfaces. Since linoleum was the original flooring material, it was used again, this time with a using "Cottonwood" as the main colour, and a soft green as the inlay. The same colour scheme was used in the backsplash tile.
