Course Description
Learn the basics of designing a period-appropriate kitchen by addressing three major categories: the dilemma of the early kitchen - how to put a modern functioning room in a pre-1850 house; adapting a 19th century servants’ kitchens with updates for family use; and 20th century kitchens (early electric through bungalow era, the Thirties and Forties, and today’s Arts and Crafts revival kitchens.) Planning for a good design and installation requires some knowledge of how cabinetry is made today. Join a veteran preservationist and an experienced cabinetmaker for an informative program on period kitchen design.
