Introducing modern kitchen and bath conveniences into the historic home without disrupting its original architectural integrity is one of the most difficult assignments in home renovation. Nowhere else in the house have changes in tastes and technology had such an impact on the use of space. Landmark Services, Inc. achieves this balance by combining mastery of the full range of options for fixtures, appliances and systems with an understanding of what is essential to preserve and maintain historic balance throughout the structure. We strive to seamlessly incorporate new systems into historic work without destroying its irreplaceable identity. We can recreate historic work, reconfigure historic layouts to accommodate modern designs and even conceal kitchen appliances and bath fixtures beneath period finishes. Our clients have learned that it is possible to enjoy comfort and modern conveniences without sacrificng historic character.
For many people, kitchens are the heart and soul of the house. But perhaps no space has changed as much through the years as kitchens. Today, the kitchen is often connected to a family room to serve as the central gathering space for families and their guests alike. Many of our clients are looking for relaxed spaces that serve a variety of functions. But instead of cookie cutter kitchens, which were the norm 20-30 years ago, our kitchens reflect the architecture of the house, as well as our clients’ tastes. Some of our kitchens fall into the “unfitted” kitchen style in which the cabinets are designed to resemble freestanding cupboards rather than standard cabinetry.
Our kitchen portfolio shows the range of styles and looks that can be achieved in new kitchens installed in old houses. As old house renovation contractors we love to help our clients achieve their vision for kitchen and bath renovations on their historic Massachusetts homes.
