Beckett / Herbert kitchen

This 1929 brick Georgian was beautifully preserved inside and out, except the kitchen had been remodeled in the 1970s.  We opened the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to visually connect the two spaces, but kept guests and family out of the cook's way by separating the two rooms with a peninsula.

The remodel remained wholly within the existing 12' by 12' room, but still managed to increase cabinet and countertop space, and to include a desk nook for paying bills.  The cook's 50 favorite herbs and spices are displayed in glass bottles within easy reach of the stove.

countertops: Richlite and granite
cabinets: cherry veneer
splash: porcelain tile
flooring: oak
