Located in the historic College Hill Neighborhood in downtown Providence, this multi-story home’s only functional kitchen was in the basement. Also used for short-term rentals, the homeowner–our client–was periodically unable to access the basement kitchen and laundry room when the unit was occupied. This arrangement was not convenient, to say the least.
After closely working with our client, Red House’s designers, well-versed in historic home renovations, proposed a bold new kitchen for the primary floor, simultaneously increasing functionality without sacrificing the character of the 200-plus-year-old home. A thoughtful kitchen layout incorporates the home’s structural elements, and a sophisticated finish palette complements the original time-worn wide-plank floors. Finally, the new kitchen entrance, now a pair of French doors, allows natural light to flood into the kitchen, simultaneously providing access to the new deck (also by Red House) and freeing up space for a custom laundry station in the adjacent room.
