A KITCHEN REMODEL FOR THIS CHARMING 1939 SPANISH REVIVAL

A KITCHEN REMODEL FOR THIS CHARMING 1939 SPANISH REVIVAL

A few of months ago when I pulled up to my client’s 1939 Spanish Revival home for our design appointment, I was completely smitten!  The white stucco and terracotta tiled roof, so classic for Spanish influenced architecture is always a favorite of mine. Although the scope of the work only includes a kitchen remodel I found myself thinking about how fun it would be to update the entire house, restoring it, while modernizing it at the same time. Here are a few exterior photos my client provided for me.

Because there’s always so much to say and share about a project that can’t possible fit into one post, I’ll be sharing the before images here, while pointing out some of the design challenge, and then I’ll follow-up with a post sharing what I came up with for the design plans.

DESIGN CHALLENGES

  • limited  space
  • windows, locations and heights
  • electrical panel box taking up prime property
  • needing to include the waterheater, plus the washer & dryer in the new kitchen plan
  • need to include a place for eating
  • need to include a sitting area with a TV in view

THERE'S ALWAYS MORE THAN ONE WAY TO SOLVE A SPATIAL PROBLEM

This has become my design mantra and years of experience has proven it to be absolutely true, even in some of the most challenging spaces. It takes careful thought and skill but it can be done! Check back to see the design solutions I proposed for this project. And for a sneak peek you can see what I've posted about this project on Instagram nicknamed #projectrivergold

Thanks for following along!
