This sweet Victorian cottage kitchen is an old house dream-come-true.
This skillful update of a Victorian cottage kitchen is one of the most admired kitchens we’ve seen. Designed to showcase the dramatic vaulted kitchen ceiling with its diamond dormer window it is, out of necessity narrow. Upper cabinets wrap around to frame the main window where a Rohl (Shaw’s) fireclay farm sink, with a Newport Brass bridge faucet, becomes the kitchen’s focal point. But the kitchen isn’t wide enough for the dishwasher to be located next to the sink.
The large panel in the center disguises the dishwasher in classic white base cabinets with dark bin pulls. Both the uppers and the soffit cabinets have glass fronts and take advantage of the ceiling height. In between is a beadboard backsplash with ogee bracket buttresses as decorative details above soapstone counters. So charming and classic.
A green Lacanche Cluny range was installed on a wall between two open areas, an odd set up since a range usually has counter space on each side. However, unfitted and vintage kitchens often had freestanding ranges as a matter of necessity, which certainly seems to be the case in this older home. The range does add a wonderful accent color to the kitchen and the mantel hood adds to the effect of a gemlike kitchen that’s easy to love.
