Set horizontally on the cabinets, a unique Paldao wood veneer creates an expansive, modern feel to the remodeled kitchen. Trimmed in metal and finished with gloss white painted doors, the upper cabinets complement a painted glass backsplash (duplicated in the dining table), which lends a hint of cool green while subtly amplifying counter lights in its reflection.

The original natural oak floors were stained to match the Paldao wood’s darker grain, balancing the overall material palette.

The central eating hub within the kitchen is the heart of family gatherings, while smaller groups nestle comfortably at the eating counter. Casual entertaining spills over into a generous family room and back yard.

Heavy molding and other “fussy” details of the Victorian epoch were removed, allowing the pure architectural elements, functionality to be the primary elements.

In the family room, Victorian-era molding at the ceilings, windows and columns were removed and simplified to visually unify the room with the adjacent kitchen. A custom media cabinet, designed to match the kitchen cabinetry, unifies the color palette of wood accents and drew inspiration from the Paldao wood’s darker grain.
