Unique CliqStudios Kitchen Design Features
This unusual kitchen remodeling project was part of an overall update to a cabin originally built in 1906! Renovation plans included exposing some of the original 110 year-old log walls, removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room, and replacing it with an island.
The family wanted to maintain a certain historic flavor in the new kitchen. Austin CH cabinets were selected as the “inset” door style was appropriate to the period in which the first structure was built. Different colors on the wall and island cabinets are a nod to how the cabin was added onto and altered several times throughout the last century.
- The family plans to use the cabin a lot more once it was updated, which also meant much more meal prep. A new hood was added above the range in anticipation of this.
- Opening up the space made room for the new island, which also added much needed storage space, including several deep drawers for pot and pan storage.
- To free up counter space, the microwave was moved to the kitchen island as well.
- The Pull-Out Trash Cabinet just to the left of the sink lets you easily scrape off plates before putting them in the dishwasher
- Some of the cabin’s original structural logs were saved and re-purposed as legs for additional counter top support for the island dining area.
- In anticipation of entertaining more guests, a small wet bar was added with glass door upper cabinets to house bar wares.
