Restoring a 1950’s Kitchen in Meridian-Kessler

Some homeowners wait a few years before improving their home, but others know much sooner. These homeowners started planning their kitchen renovation immediately; this bungalow in Meridian-Kessler was originally built in 1955, so it needed some major updates from the start.

Just Like New

We started by removing the walls that separated the kitchen, dining and living rooms in order to create a more open floorplan. And like many kitchen renovations in the area, we also wanted to make sure that we retained the original charm of the home.  The wall opposite the window was removed and replaced with a support beam and column – detailed to match the existing trim – which would help to open up the new space. Where the wall once stood, a generously sized island with seating and storage was added in its place.

Back to The Roots

The existing hardwood floors were repaired and stained. The hardware selected for the glass front cabinets remains true to the kitchen’s midcentury roots. The overhead soffits were removed and the original windows are now a highlighted design feature in this sparkling kitchen renovation.
