Remodeling a kitchen with Tuscan flavor

Written by: Abby Weingarten

Biking trips in idyllic Tuscany inspired Jeanne and Steve Hirsch to bring the Italian countryside to their Wesley Chapel kitchen.

The newly retired Hirsches had moved into the 1997-built Saddlebrook home from Long Island, New York two years ago. Surrounded by outdated, generic white cabinets and countertops, Jeanne says remodeling a kitchen was an easy decidion. “We had been to Tuscany several times and we liked the rich, warm wood and high ceilings we saw there,” she explains. “We also saw these types of disappearing, camouflaged doors in the kitchens in Italy, so we wanted to incorporate the look of those doors and have them blend right into our cabinetry at home.”
