Turn of The Century Home

Mt. Lebanon, PA

the details:

The client’s main concern for this kitchen is not only updating it, but also maintaining the Italian style villa of the existing house. We did not have the option of changing the footprint, but we did close up a window to give the client some much needed wall space and we moved the range to an exterior wall so that it would vent outside. We moved the plumbing as well.

Features & Challenges of the Project:
  • The main challenge of this space was that the floors, walls, and ceilings were all cement underneath
  • Running new lighting required us to drop the ceiling down and running new electrical and moving plumbing and electrical was very tricky in this space
  • Maintaining the look of the house was also very important in making design selections
  • Wrought iron staircase, chandeliers and an outdoor patio that has a versaille patterned tiled floor
  • Kitchen features versaille patterned porcelain tile that looks like travertine
  • Two toned cabinet package with painted white linen on the upper cabinets and a rich, stained maple on the base cabinets
  • Subway tile backsplash with a craquele finish that sparkles under light
  • Wrought iron and oil rubbed bronze fixtures, lighting, and faucets
  • Small seating area at the end of the run of the cabinets
  • Includes organizational features throughout
