This beautiful vintage kitchen remodel in an 1897 historic home is located in the same town where my daughter Bridget lives – Downers Grove. I love every square inch of its sun-filled space and think you will too.
A trio of quaint bar stools cozy up to the expansive kitchen island. Custom tile work above the stove adds color and interest to the neutral toned room.
Open shelves were added to a section of the wall where a cabinet would seem too intrusive by blocking part of the window. It’s a great spot for small, sun-loving plants.
Shaker style cabinets in the vintage kitchen are painted in a beautiful shade of beige that’s anything but boring. I love the length of the kitchen island and its ample counter space. That doorway leads to a remodeled powder room.
A farmhouse sink adds a touch of old school charm. I love when sinks have a window above them. When I lived in an apartment, that wasn’t the case. So I hung a landscape painting above the sink to pretend I had a view!
The house reveals its age through the vintage molding around the windows and doors. And did you spot the wine fridge by the back door?
