  • Historic Hyde Park Renovation – We’re Finished!

Last updated on January 1, 1970

Here are some final pictures of the duplex remodel—we have not shown the finished kitchen on the second floor before.

We thought it would be fun to look at both kitchens side-by-side.  Both before pictures illustrate the strong need to remodel those kitchens.  It was really neat to see the original metal cabinets and original tile floors were still in these kitchens, even though previous owners did update the back splash and counter tops.  Despite differences in the layout of each kitchen, the footprints of both are the same.

The second floor kitchen was finished with painted and glazed cabinetry; whereas, the first floor kitchen cabinetry was stained and glazed.  Although both kitchens have the same cabinet layout, counter top and back splash material, changing the cabinet finishes and slightly changing the color of the back splash material produced two kitchens with very different personalities.  It was quite interesting to the homeowners to see how potential renters viewed the different kitchens.

In the end, both units have been rented to people who absolutely love their kitchens!

Great job Gayle Jagoda and team!
