Not the normal way!
I have posted before and have gotten great responses. I am doing something very different in the kitchen. We have a 200 year old home, the kitchen is currently a 1960's builder grade. In addition all of the original wood work and plaster has been removed in this part of the house. So we found a showroom Italian modern kitchen with sub-zero and Viking appliances. It fits perfectly in the space. We are going back and recreating the millwork to set off the modern cabinets. So the style will be 21st century hits early 19th. The house is not a 'farm house'. So one of the big decisions left will be what to do about the flooring. The original heart pine was also removed form this area. and I do not think I can afford the 200 year old sunken wood that one of the other posters so aptly referred to. The kitchen currently has three Carrera marble thresholds that have survived beautifully for 200 years. I have found salvage Carrera marble tiles in a honed finish. Input? Would it work? and would it help with the old meets new?
