The owners of this 1890 Victorian in the heart of Denver wanted to preserve the character of their home while adding modern conveniences in the kitchen along with a designated space for their board game collection.
The kitchen's white cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and quartz countertops are a neutral backdrop to the decorative mosaic tile behind the range and the grey porcelain herringbone tiled floor. With the wall removed, the kitchen feels much more spacious with direct access to the dining room and the rest of the house.
The filigree patterned mosaic tile above the stove is a lovely Victorian detail.
BEFORE: The kitchen was previously accessed through a door from the dining room which enclosed the kitchen on all sides. An earlier addition sealed off the original doorway with a brick wall.
BEFORE: The living room doubled as a space for the homeowner's board game collection, which was stored in free-standing bookshelves.
By dividing the living room with resalvaged doors from the original Union Station in Denver, the office was created to include a beautiful and accessible space for the board game collection.
The homeowners received everything on their wishlist including a piece of Denver's history. Needless to say, they are thrilled with the results.
