Renovation and Preservation Can Work Together

Remodeling a kitchen or bathroom in a historic home is crucial to improving its livability and the quality of life for anyone there. However, it also brings a responsibility to preserve original structural elements and comply with town regulations if the home has landmark status.

Our name, Kitchen Traditions, says it all.

We understand and have a deep respect for Connecticut’s rich architectural history.

If you own or are about to buy a historic home, one of the most important reasons to choose a local Connecticut kitchen and bathroom remodeling company like us is our expertise in this area. Renovating historic structures involves additional considerations and requires specialized knowledge.

When your home is landmarked, remodeling plans often need to be submitted to town officials for review and approval. If you talk to a contractor who doesn’t mention this, ensure that you do. Starting a project without the needed approvals leads to headaches, delays, or worse.

Secrets Behind the Walls and Under the Floors

Blueprints drawn for a CT kitchen remodel by Kitchen Traditions. Renovating kitchens and bathrooms in historic structures often requires an understanding and investigation of what lies behind the walls and under the floors. Modernizing electrical and plumbing comes to mind first. But other decisions add to the beauty and quality of your renovation.

  • Removing old plaster to expose historic brick, wood beams, etc.
  • Structural reinforcements to support new kitchen cabinets
  • Leveling and reinforcing subfloors before installing tile
  • Addressing insulation and correcting water-infiltration issues
  • Replacing rotted or deteriorated wood

Bathroom renovations in CT can be even more detailed in historical homes because you often replace a bathroom squeezed in long after the house was built. Spaces can be smaller, and specialized fixtures and fittings are required to improve functionality and elegance.
