AFTER: Robinson chose light-colored, 20-by-20-inch porcelain tile for the floor and a creamy white paint for the walls to enlarge the space. She opted for a tile floor over wood because of its durability and to maintain the kitchen’s open and airy design. “If we put a lot of wood surfaces in there, it wouldn’t have felt as French and feminine,” she says. To stay in line with the home’s roots, she included lighting fixtures from Rejuvenation, a historic-reproduction lighting company. “All of the lighting has that historic, almost schoolhouse feel, which adds to the home’s cottage style,” she says. AFTER: Here’s the new layout. Robinson says part of the challenge in this new design was making the most of limited space. “Even though we added a bigger addition, it’s not a huge kitchen by today’s standards,” she says. “We fit a lot into a relatively small space.” The powder room now occupies the same space that the old kitchen did. The new kitchen space is also U-shaped but has a more spread-out, efficient work triangle. Robinson also inserted a small island as an additional work surface and to provide more seating. There’s a home office with banquette seating near the back of the kitchen.
