Lofts and converted warehouses often have envy-inducing industrial vibes (hello, large leaded windows, ceiling beams, and cool cement floors!), but sometimes, without the right finishing touches, they can feel more commercial and sparse than urban and chic.
This loft kitchen (located in a converted warehouse in Philadelphia) was feeling a bit more like an office kitchen than a personalized cook space, and homeowners Will and Faith Hare set out to change that.
“We were the first owners after the original developer, who was renting the condo,” Will says. “The kitchen was a very basic modern style (at least for 2008) with black glass uppers, gray lower cabinets, and a black solid surface counter. We initially had a stainless steel commercial kitchen prep table for an island, as well, so it had a very predictable loft feel.”
After living in the space for several years, Will and Faith decided to give the loft a less predictable, more organic and warm upgrade — one that gave special attention to how they use the space day-to-day.
