"We wanted our new kitchen to look like a true Victorian, without compromising our ability to live and work in it." To achieve vintage charm with modern function, they chose state-of-the-art components designed, whenever possible, in the Victorian vernacular.

The Details
Countertops: They chose stainless steel for the main countertops and integral sink over more expensive solid surfacing or stone, preferring to put their remodeling dollars into the cabinets.

Cabinets: Extra-deep cabinets were specified to be flush with the standard-depth refrigerator. This trick gave the appliance the look of an expensive counter-depth model.

The Island: A Carrara marble countertop on the island, 1 1/4 inches thick, has a flat profile with an eased (slightly rounded) edge.

Storage: Open drawers with hand cutouts in place of hardware allow the smoothest access to pots and pans stowed beneath the cooktop.
