The owners of an 1880s Victorian in Arlington returned to Feinmann to reconfigure their first floor, connecting the old, small kitchen with the existing dining room. They asked for a large island with seating and a walk-in pantry as part of the renovation. The wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed to create a more open floor plan.
Feinmann had previously created a new, award-winning master bathroom and family bathroom for this client. As their family continued to grow, they began planning their next big project.
Additional requests included providing access to the backyard and refinishing the back staircase. A new set of French doors was added. Finally, Feinmann removed the shower from the main floor bathroom and used the space for a recessed refrigerator and storage cabinets. Demolition of the old kitchen and framing of the new space took place over the summer. The new kitchen took shape soon after.
The shower was removed from the downstairs bath in an adjacent space to make room for a new SubZero side-by-side refrigerator and cabinetry flush with the wall. A new dual-fuel Wolf range and Thermador hood anchor one end of the kitchen. The perimeter and island countertop is Torquay from Cambria. The white cabinetry and contrasting mahogany island cabinetry is from Greenfield. The island features seating on one side and The textured, white tile backsplash behind the range is from Heath. One of the features of this new space is the walk-in pantry between the kitchen and the front of the home, across from the newly restored back staircase. New white oak floors and a new marble tile hearth by the fireplace completed the renovation and satisfied the homeowners’ requests.
