In the heart of Lynn, Massachusetts, lies the historic Lynn Diamond District, a place where history and charm intertwine with the modern world. It's here that Benchmark Kitchen & Bath embarked on a journey to create a captivating custom kitchen design that would seamlessly blend the timeless allure of a historic home with the sophistication of contemporary living. In this blog post, we will take you on a virtual tour of this remarkable project and highlight its key features, revealing how Benchmark Kitchen & Bath transformed a dated kitchen into a masterpiece of design.
The Challenge: Harmonizing the Old and the New
The Lynn Diamond District is renowned for its historic homes, each with its unique character and charm. Our challenge was to create a custom kitchen that not only respected the historical roots of the property but also catered to the demands of modern living. This required a delicate balance between classic aesthetics and contemporary functionality.
1. Shiloh Custom Kitchen
Our journey began with the selection of Shiloh cabinetry, which would serve as the heart of the home. The choice of Shiloh was pivotal in achieving the desired equilibrium between classic aesthetics and modern functionality. These custom cabinets were carefully designed to not only provide ample storage but also exude timeless elegance.
2. Dark Backsplash
A bold and dramatic choice, the dark backsplash tiles added depth and contrast to the kitchen design. This choice not only paid homage to the home's historical roots but also infused a touch of drama into the space. It was a strategic move to create visual intrigue and make the kitchen truly stand out.
3. Modern Color Cabinetry
To seamlessly integrate contemporary style within a traditional context, modern color cabinetry was chosen. These cabinets added a fresh and vibrant element to the kitchen while respecting the historical charm of the Diamond District. The result was a harmonious fusion of old and new.
4. High-End Stainless Appliances
Elevating the kitchen's functionality was essential, and this was achieved by incorporating high-end stainless steel appliances. These appliances not only met the demands of modern living but also aligned perfectly with the upscale aspirations of the project. They represented the marriage of aesthetics and performance.
5. Matching Rangehood
Design cohesion was maintained through the selection of a matching rangehood. This element served both a functional purpose and contributed significantly to the kitchen's aesthetic unity. It was a crucial piece of the puzzle in achieving a seamless transition between classic and contemporary.
6. Brass-Colored Hardware
To add a touch of opulence to the design, brass-colored hardware was carefully selected. This choice struck a delicate balance between modern luxury and historical opulence. The hardware became the jewelry that adorned this beautiful kitchen.
Outcome: A Testament to Quality
The result of this meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail is a custom kitchen that is a testament to Benchmark Kitchen & Bath's commitment to quality. It successfully blends the old and the new, creating a space that honors the past while catering to the demands of modern living. This Lynn Diamond District kitchen is not just a place to cook; it's a work of art, a testament to the enduring charm of historical homes, and a celebration of modern design.
