Kitchen Remodeling -The kitchen and most of main level of this 1869 home in
downtown Milford was completely redesigned and transformed to create a much
more functional and fresh space. The goal was to keep with the historical feel
but to meet the needs of today’s modern family. In the new design the kitchen
was relocated to be more central to the home. Antique white cabinetry was used and
a large island was created using driftwood gray cabinets. A secondary island was
built with a overhead archway and flanked with columns to add to the beautiful
architectural detail. White quartzite was used along with durable wood plank look tile.

Kitchen Remodel and Room Addition-
  Rich cherry cabinetry,
combined with granite countertops and state of the art stainless
steel appliances make this kitchen a perfect blend of  beauty, style,
and function. However, what makes this kitchen truly breathtaking
is its stunning slate and glass tile backsplash. The rich texture and
autumn colors of the artistic tile design compliments the wood tones
of the Brookhaven Edgemont cabinets and Toasted Almond granite. 
A wall was removed to open the space up to the eating area. The
eating area was further opened up by bumping the back wall out
towards the backyard. Oak hardwood flooring completes the ambiance.
A mudroom was also added to the rear of the home This uniqueness
of this kitchen, along with the beautiful antiques of our clients makes
this home truly charming.  See our
