This charming Crown Point kitchen is just one room resulting from over 5 years of careful renovations to an old farmhouse in Southern New Hampshire. It was very important to the homeowners that they take their time with the renovation, preserving as much of the history of the old home as possible. We worked directly with the homeowner to realize this dream, providing custom inset painted cabinetry, and incorporating reclaimed wood from a barn on the property for the island legs.
“When we realized that the island design would need support posts for the counter overhang,” the homeowner said, “we thought it would look nice to use some of the old beams from the carriage barn that was attached to the kitchen.” They brought their idea to their Crown Point designer, Peter Ippedico, and they worked together to make it happen. The beams were brought into the Crown Point cabinet shop where they were stained to match the other exposed beams in the space.
“It’s a nice mix of old and new,” said the homeowner. “I like to call the style ‘snappy rustic.'” The island legs are perfectly at home in their new setting as the legs for the family’s kitchen island. They are a special touch in a room where the family spends a lot of time.
