A 1960s Era Kitchen Steps into the 21st Century

The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s a place where wonderful memories are made and serves as the home’s central activity hub. But style often falls by the wayside as years roll by. As design trends shift and technology improves, remodeling becomes the obvious choice.

Updating an outdated kitchen breathes new life into the space and gives the homeowner the perfect opportunity to tell their personal design story. See how Sunshine Sunrooms went about modernizing a 1960’s era kitchen with a mix of contemporary and traditional details.

Kitchen Remodel

The Setup: This 1960s era home presented some unique design challenges to the Sunshine Sunrooms team. With a narrow 3.5’ x 9’ foyer and formal living and dining rooms obscured by walls, the biggest challenge involved updating the space while still retaining the best elements of the classic layout.

The Goal: Complete a dramatic kitchen remodel that broadens the space and takes the kitchen from an outdated, self-contained layout to a fresh, open layout with an updated galley-style kitchen.

The Process: Starting with a classic 1960s and 1970s floor plan characterized by a living room, formal dining room, den and kitchen all separated by walls, Sunshine Sunrooms removed the wall separating the living room and kitchen to open the space and create the perfect backdrop for the upcoming design changes.

Design Highlights: The center of the kitchen is updated with a colossal 42” bar area that’s large enough to serve food, host guests, and more. Topped with genuine granite, the countertops provide a striking contrast to the rustic yet modern hardwood cabinets and lustrous stainless steel appliances. Keeping some classic elements, a range hood is installed above the range, counter to many modern kitchen remodeling projects that incorporate a microwave/exhaust combo above the range.

After: Marble countertop view, new stainless steel appliances, and range hood.
