Heritage Minded Kitchen for Woodstock Heritage Home Reno

We’re staying local today with a heritage home renovation belonging to Scott & Jamie Clowes, Bedell, New Brunswick, just outside of Woodstock.  The homeowners started with an original home, approximately 150-200 year old, and have transformed the space into a home bursting with modern country charm.

The homeowners sat down with Jim at Avondale, to come up with a couple of kitchen layout options.  The final two options were:

Option 1: Bring window to counter, stove and microwave range hood in corner, island with support beam built in:

Misc Orginal layout

Option two: Decrease window size, add shelves, large custom enclosed range hood, and keep large chimney enclosure to separate dining and kitchen areas:


The homeowners opted for the second plan and renos began!

Let’s take a look at the kitchen starting with a before shot.  The existing kitchen was fitting to the home, but was in need of upgrading:

The homeowners wanted a kitchen that would not look out of place in the older home, but with modern finishes and upgrades.  Marble counters, large drawers and an enclosed hood make this kitchen user friendly and aesthetically pleasing:


The window is brought closer to the counter to bring in more light to the kitchen area, while the apron front sink and taps are still used to keep with the farmhouse theme:

This before shot is facing the stove, and an access door to the kitchen on the right:

An over-sized range hood enclosure adds a focal point to the kitchen, and large drawers add ample storage.  A custom designed pantry and fridge area keep everything within reach:
