Bright and Blue Kitchen in Alameda Dutch Colonial Kitchen Remodel

Click on image to view slideshow of before and after photos. 

This Portland, Oregon Dutch Colonial home in the Alameda Neighborhood was built in 1921 and purchased last November by my darling (and super fun) clients from Brooklyn, New York. The old kitchen wasn’t terribly dated, but it was dark and had a less than ideal layout. With tall ceilings, we went with double uppers to accentuate the height and add cabinet space.

We moved the peninsula from one side of the kitchen to the other because it was blocking the opening to the dining room and to the double doors leading to the patio. We widened the doorway to the dining room to create a better flow from one room to the other. As you can see, we lightened up the kitchen significantly and gave the space the polish this old Portland home deserved. Photos by Olivia Ashton.
