Blending Old & New for Rustic North Shore Kitchen

Rustic North Shore Kitchen Revived with Handcrafted Cabinetry-

The owners of this rustic North Shore kitchen wanted to update with new cabinetry without losing its character. Our solution was incorporating transitional style cabinetry with clean lines and a subdued color palette to blend easily into the existing space.

Combining Old & New

Rustic North Shore Kitchen

The perimeter cabinetry is gray stained willow wood creating a natural flow with the exposed ceiling beams. Our clients love their antique collections. Their turn of the century French cookware on display is complemented by the copper faux finished range hood made in our Evanston shop.

Keeping Old World Charm

The lighted display cabinet with metal mesh panels echo the grillwork of the windows adding to the cohesive look of the space and maintaining its character. The cabinetry & countertop colors blend perfectly with the fireplaces on either end of the kitchen masking the fact that they were built in different decades.

Handcrafted Dining Table

Custom Dining Table

The carefully constructed dining table, made in our Evanston cabinet shop, is crafted of maple with a natural stain- a perfect match to the new chairs. The round configuration is perfect for daily use and when fully extended provides seating for a large group.

The elegant simplicity of the new dining table is a welcome replacement for the dark, style specific table & chairs.
