First Floor Kitchen & Mudroom Remodel of a Chestnut Hill Stone Colonial

This first floor gut remodel of an outdated stone colonial in Chestnut Hill reconfigured a series of convoluted spaces, surrounding a poorly placed back staircase, into a modern and open, all white kitchen. By relocating the basement stair, and eliminating the secondary back staircase, we were able to combine 4 disparate kitchen rooms into one large kitchen with an adjacent mudroom entry. The entire space was transformed.  New cabinetry details were created with a nod to the historic character and older windows, and older ones were carefully restored.  The homeowners favor a clean and crisp white palette with grey floors  and calm palette of grays, off-whites, and cool blues. The kitchen leads to a historic wood paneled dining room, and the transition was carefully integrated to be harmonic.
