Unique CliqStudios 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. As well as, removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room, then replacing it with an island.
The family wanted to maintain the cabins history in the new kitchen. Austin CH cabinets were selected as the “inset” door style was fitting to the period in which the first structure was built. Different colors on the wall and island cabinets nod to the the several years of additions to the cabin throughout the last century.
- The family plans to get a lot of use out of the cabin post update. In other words, a lot more meal prep for the family. Because of this, 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 found new purpose as legs for more counter top support for the island dining area.
- In hopes of entertaining more guests, a small wet bar was also added with glass door upper cabinets to house bar wares.
