Karen’s Kitchen: Old and New Cabinets blending into One Period Kitchen

2013 04 08 Image 01In order to achieve the 40’s look we wanted, attention needed to be paid to the sink. The sink was new, but had hootie ring that was typical of sinks of this period. New sinks that have hootie rims are uncommon, and usually found only in the commercial category of plumbing catalogs. The faucet was salvaged, but correct in form for the period. Mike installed a Lazy Susan in the corner cabinetry to better utilize space. Lazy Susan’s were very common in 1940’s kitchens, and they provide a huge amount of storage in what would otherwise be lost space in the corner.
