Farmhouse Kitchen – North Albany, Oregon

COTY 2010 Regional Winner Kitchen Design and Remodeling Corvallis OregnThis 1911 farmhouse kitchen in North Albany has breathtaking views of mint fields and pastures below and Mt. Jefferson above. We designed the new kitchen/dining great room to be more open and connected to the adjacent family room, while maximizing natural light and taking advantage of the views.

Several ill-conceived additions over the years created a disjointed layout that separated the kitchen from other family areas. To reconfigure the space, we demolished the kitchen and several small rooms behind it (breakfast, laundry, and powder rooms) and built a small addition. The new great room integrates and visually connects the kitchen, dining area, and family room.

Windows were added along the entire length of the kitchen to improve natural lighting and take advantage of the views. The new wall of windows allows light to flood the kitchen, making it feel bright and airy.

The functionality of this new farmhouse kitchen was greatly improved with two sinks, plenty of countertop space, ample cabinetry, and two concealed dishwashers (one next to each sink). A roomy walk-in pantry with an etched-glass door provides generous storage solutions. Together, these improvements make prep work and cleanup a cinch.

A granite-covered island with sapele cabinets became the centerpiece and hub of the new kitchen.

The informal kitchen entry keeps clutter from taking over by providing places for mail, phones, coats, and shoes. Drawers, baskets, hooks, and shelves provide a place for everything.

A custom designed buffet with a lighted display case in the dining area provides counter space for serving food and drinks, along with additional storage that is both convenient and beautiful. The beadboard inlay adds to the vintage feel of the farmhouse.

In the kitchen, ceramic subway and glass mosaic tiles create a beautiful backsplash. The glass tiles’ earth tones repeat the colors seen in the granite counters, wood floors, island cabinets, and wall paint to create a sense of harmony.
