Summit Street Kitchen and Bath
For this classic house in Seattle’s Harvard-Belmont Historic District, the owners chose to keep the new finishes of the kitchen and bath compatible with the existing historic interiors in the rest of the house. The new kitchen has been reconfigured and enlarged, a project which included enclosing part of an existing porch for an eating nook. We reconfigured the main bathroom, adding a shower, double vanity and sink in the powder room. We retained and refinished the original tub. The tilework was designed to convey a vintage aesthetic. We created a powder room on the main floor, incorporating a copper sink from the original butler’s pantry. The project also included reconfiguring the laundry room, creating space for a guest suite and exercise room in the basement, and updating lighting systems throughout the house. The result is a gracious home with modern conveniences and early 1900’s flair.
