Kitchen Stories: Remodeling in San Francisco

The owner of this home wanted to bring the urban feel of his city, San Francisco, into this 1920’s historic house. He went to Shelley Lober, CKD of Kitchens of Diablo for her expertise in West Coast kitchen design.

A modern traditional kitchen remodel with white cabinets and a dark stained wood kitchen island from Dura Supreme Cabinetry.

"The home has high ceilings and elaborate moldings that were incorporated into the design to create a traditional style with a clean simple design", explained Lober.

A Classic Urban Kitchen design remodeled with white kitchen cabinets from Dura Supreme Cabinetry with beige painted walls, high ceilings, a dark stained island, and woos floors in a historic home.

To keep it classic, Shelley recommended Dura Supreme’s White painted finish with a dark stained Cocoa Brown island and dark hardwood floors for contrast.

Simple, flat panel cabinet doors with a white paint finish help modernize this kitchen remodel.

The simple, flat panel doors help modernize the space, yet still work with the more traditional architectural elements of the home.

A Kitchen Remodel Design with Traditional details mixed with modern day styles in a San Francisco California home.

You would never guess this home was built in 1920! Shelley did an incredible job combining all of the traditional details with modern style to give a beautiful and functional facelift to this classic San Francisco home.
