Choosing Kitchen Cabinets for Your Historical Atlanta Home

Posted by Jim Walker on Dec 6, 2017 9:41:00 AM

Many kitchen cabinets in Atlanta, Georgia’s historic homes were originally built in the early 1900s or even the late 1800s. In some cases, particularly in homes built before 1910, no kitchen cabinetry existed at all. Instead, storage consisted of shelves, tables, and pantries. In historic homes where cabinetry was originally installed, function is often compromised and storage confined. Often, alignment is also warped and finishes are faded.

Yet many homeowners are reluctant to remodel because they don’t wish to risk losing their home’s architectural charm. At Copper Sky, we recognize the importance of preserving this historicity while introducing efficient functionality. We specialize in integrating modern utility with original aesthetics. In other words, we’re here to say you can have your cake and eat it too. Here’s how.


Our Process

You can’t preserve historic charm and capture its aesthetics in new additions if you don’t know each era’s defining characteristics. This is where our 15 years of industry experience remodeling Atlanta’s historic homes has given us a practiced eye for design. We have restored homes of many styles, ranging from Tudor to Craftsman and Victorian to Arts and Crafts. We’ve even remodeled the oldest home in Cobb County.

When we take on a project, we first start by gaining a careful understanding of the homeowners’ needs, encompassing storage requirements, prep space and cooking appliance preferences, and specialty door and drawer hardware organization requests. We then observe the kitchen in the context of the whole home and create custom kitchen cabinets in Atlanta for an integration of modern comfort and historic ambiance.

Our Results

Our results speak for themselves. In this North Highland Arts and Crafts home, for example, we installed all-new kitchen cabinetry that perfectly matches the home’s original in-built storage bookshelves and shelving units while integrating specialized features like a kitchen wine rack.

Another recent client called us in to renovate after a pipe broke. While the renovation was instigated by functional necessity, it gave the home owners a chance to transform their kitchen into an open floor plan with specialty appliances integrated into traditional, custom-built cabinets. We invite you to tour our other kitchen restorations to view our difference.
