The owners of this home in Bath, Ohio had two main goals when they decided to overhaul their dated kitchen: Open up the space and give it a rustic farmhouse look. “They wanted a more open style kitchen with a large island,” says James Justice, owner of Architectural Justice, the company that handled the complete remodel project from design through installation. The design included creating an open pantry by using an existing hallway, building the island, selecting the materials and styles for the cabinetry and countertops and crafting the custom range hood.
“We have a granite, cabinet, and metal shop here on site,” Justice says, “so with remodeling projects we can tie all of it together.” And tie all of it together they did.
From the cabinet/wood shop
Heavily distressed maple cabinetry was combined with custom elements to create a mix of colors and styles. Wood beams on the ceiling and floating shelves for the pantry enhance the warm farmhouse feel.
From the metal shop
A stunning custom zinc range hood created by Architectural Justice resides above a stainless steel oven. “We incorporate metal accents into most of our designs,” Justice says. “It’s a great way to create that wow factor in a space.”
From the granite shop
An exotic granite from Brazil that the homeowners spotted while visiting the granite shop in Medina was used for the countertops. “One of our specialties is bringing in some really unique granite,” says Justice.
After the project was complete, Justice checked in on the homeowners. “When I got there, they were just ecstatic about the kitchen,” he says. “It was great seeing their reaction.”
