Historic White Kitchen

The Downs, Downtown Tuscaloosa Alabama

The kitchen design for this home located in The Downs was part of the reconstruction that took place following the April 2011 tornado that devastated Tuscaloosa, AL. The house was constructed in keeping with the look of the historic district.  It was featured as a showcase home in the Kitchens of Consequence fundraiser for WUAL/Alabama Public Radio and was staged for the event by the Tuscaloosa interior design firm Lampada's Design.

Soft White Cabinetry

The cabinets are custom with a full overlay with "X" mullions. They have a soft white base color with a Van Dyke Brown brush glaze overlay. Top Knobs Hardware provided the knobs and pulls. The lighting is by Visual Comfort, and the faucet is a Delta Touch model which allows water to flow by directly touching the faucet. 

Functional Kitchen Island

Custom hand turned legs were used on the table height kitchen island and are used again to the left and right of the range where they accent a pullout spice rack and baking sheet drawer. The countertops are quartz and have a DuPont edge profile.

Hidden Spice Rack

The backsplash was built using white subway tile. The range hood has an external blower with decorative corbels. The major appliances are KitchenAid, and the microwave is the Sharp Insight Pro built-in microwave drawer.
