A Traditional Timber Home Kitchen With an Industrial Twist

This kitchen has an undeniable zest for timber framing.

Owners Brian and Dawn Kempisty, who have savored their timber home for close to a decade, enlisted Timberbuilt to help them concoct the perfect kitchen. Starting with a base of natural materials, they added a splash of man-made finishes for an irresistble twist on a traditional timber home.
 

Why We Love It:

 
  • Pickled white-pine posts, beams and braces frame the L-shaped kitchen with its opposing island. 
  • Synthetic Eldorado stone (that’s indistinguishable from the real thing) encases the island and the cooktop surround.
  • High-end cabinetry with an ebony finish is a glamorous contrast to the subtle tones of the timber frame.
  • Polished concrete countertopsprovide an industrial touch to the otherwise traditional space.
  • The oak floors that run throughout the home were reclaimed from a 100-year-old tobacco barn.
