Tudor Show Home Kitchen

English Tudor Idea Kitchen

Showhouse kitchens like this one can be the ideal place to be daring while incorporating proven design ideas. Part of a 26-room 1914 English Tudor, this fully-modernized kitchen is made to fit the Old-World style of its home.

A striking large paneled canopy, accentuated with rope molding, frames the cooking center where the original fireplace once stood. The 48"- wide gas range is surrounded by convenient work space on both sides. Storage abounds - from the wall cabinets surrounding the canopy to a tall cabinet tucked near the entryway. There's even a butler's pantry for additional storage.

Pale yellow paint is accented by a creamy tone on the cabinets. Blue slate counters provide a stunning contrast. Directly in front of the range stands an island designed to resemble a moveable work table. It includes an undermount sink, classic faucet and a dishwasher with drawer storage on each side. Knotty pine with a medium brown stain and heavy blue patina give the work center its mossy, aged look.

A passage way from the kitchen to the butler's pantry, with cabinets that match the island, was enlarged to bring the two spaces together, yet retain an open feeling.
