The Glassman family brought a design challenge to the Olney Cabinet Discounter showroom: remodeling their 1880’s farmhouse kitchen while maintaining the rustic feel and historic architecture!
Our original kitchen had been designed 30 years ago by my husband to look and function as a commercial kitchen, complete with gigantic Vulcan Range and quarry tile floors/counters. It was never “my” kitchen and over time became less and less “user-friendly.”

Working with kitchen designer Dave Humerick they successfully created a warm and comfortable, yet highly functional kitchen with modern conveniences like a wine fridge. The barn siding behind the counters and wood beams in the ceiling help to retain the rustic farmhouse feel of the space and offset the lighter wood cabinetry and modern appliances chosen by the client. The end result is a seamless blend of the old and the new that will suit their needs for years to come.
For the cabinetry we used Brighton Cabinetry. The door style was Amesbury which is a shaker door style in a Natural finished Rustic Alder. The door profile was the semi overlay with the lipped knife hinged door. This created a rustic old world feel keeping with the décor and age of this house. The countertops are granite – Giallo Ornamental. While the cabinets are rustic, Mrs. Glassman added just a little modern flare with the pulls she selected for the doors and drawers and also in the glass and stone mosaic tile she selected for the wall behind the hood area and cooktop.

All CDI personnel were top-quality professionals, helpful and concerned with the final outcome. I credit them with the ease of the remodeling and the complete lack of unanticipated problems. This was the most satisfying experience of any remodel I have been involved in. Our new kitchen will be frequently shown-off for entertaining friends; and used for our own meal prep on a daily basis.
