Deserted islands Kitchen tables make a comeback

G

By Michelle Brunner

Special to The Washington Post

rowing up, there was one place to be after every holiday meal: grandma’s kitchen table. The table was a hub of activity and chatter that went far beyond divvying up leftovers and discussing who should get the last slice of pie. Stories were swapped, highballs were drunk, and cards were played. If a piece of furniture could evoke a sense of family and community, the table was it. Helen Parker, creative director of deVOL kitchens, has warm memories of this once-essential piece of furniture. “My dad would sit at the kitchen table and get out books or look at stamps and use it as a place to continue hanging out; it was so much more than just a place to eat,” she says. Lately, a handful of designers

A generous table brings a lightness to a Sag Harbor, New York, kitchen designed by Steven Gambrel. (ERIC PIASECKI / SR GAMBREL) “A table has a domestic warmth to it that an island doesn’t,” Steven Gambrel says. (ERIC PIASECKI / SR GAMBREL)

and tastemakers are embracing the old-fashioned table as a homier alternative to the ubiquitous island. Cabinetry companies such as deVOL and Plain English have launched U.S. showrooms to an overwhelmingly positive response in the past year, and their advertising often features

images of kitchens with tables front and center. The spaces present a cozy and inviting antidote to overly sleek kitchens with tricked-out islands. There’s a reason that “gathered around the island” doesn’t have the same nostalgic ring as “gathered around the table.”

“A table has a domestic warmth to it that an island doesn’t,” says New York interior designer Steven Gambrel. “The way a casual outfit encourages a laid-back vibe and black-tie dress creates a formal tone, the same is true of an island,” he says. “When an island is built-in and matches the cabinets, it has a stiff, immobile presence. It doesn’t have the same sense of ease as a wooden table that’s got some

age.” For Parker, adding a vintage table is a way to create a more authentic, eclectic vibe. “All of those matching parts don’t feel as soulful as when you have great big table with a bunch of flowers where the kids can do their homework,” she says.

because the legs raise it off the ground; it feels more airy and less contrived than an island, which can feel bulky and dated,” he says. Part of the problem in Parker’s opinion is the temptation for homeowners to fit everything and the kitchen sink into the island. “It’s become a big box with too many appliances, stools, and a garbage bin; it ends up not being an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture,” she says. A recent Houzz survey estimated that 38% of kitchen remodels involved adding an island (that doesn’t include all of the homes that already have one). Some trend forecasters even predict we’ll see a rise in the popularity of double islands in future years. According to Home Advisor, the average cost of a kitchen island is $3,000 to $5,000, though custom-built options can be $10,000 or more. Of course, not every kitchen can accommodate a built-in island. For older houses with small or galley-style cookspaces, planning for an island involves opening up a wall or bumping out the back, which can increase renovation costs dramatically. In these situations, a smallto medium-size table can be a practical and affordable solution, offering comparable prep space. A solid pine table from

Ikea will set you back just $99, while an antiqued elm one with a distressed metal base from Restoration Hardware starts at $1,095. If you’re in the market for a truly unique vintage piece, 1st dibs has an Italian oak farm table with geometric inlay for $4,000. The earliest islands were humble work tables placed in the center of the kitchen. If you were wealthy, it was where servants orchestrated dinner — think of the downstairs buzz of “Downton Abbey.” If you weren’t, it was where you sat to peel potatoes or roll out pie crust, often in solitude, because the kitchen was probably cut off from the rest of the house. It wasn’t until the mid-20th century that the open kitchen and built-in island arrived, promising to make women’s lives easier. “The iconic suburban image of the command-post kitchen where the woman of the house could do her work and observe the kids really resonated in 1950s America,” says Sarah Leavitt, curator at the National Building Museum in Washington. “The idea was to build this concept of family and togetherness right into the actual architecture and design of the house.” While the island was an aspirational symbol of modern housekeeping, it was mostly a product of postwar construction for suburban single-family

homes. It gained momentum through the 1960s and ’70s but didn’t become a mainstream design element until the 1980s and ’90s, when open-plan kitchens became the rage, buoyed by the popularity of the Food Network and HGTV. Suddenly, the island wasn’t just a prep space, but also a stage to perform for your guests, though visibility has its drawbacks. “If you have a big island that’s open to the rest of the house and you’re trying to sit in the living room, you’re likely staring at dirty dishes,” Leavitt says. “It looks nice when it’s clean, but given the potential for mess, it’s surprising that it continues to have widespread appeal.” Another downside: Breakfast bar-style seating often forces

everyone to eat facing the same direction — fine for a quick bite on-the-go, but not exactly great for connecting with one another. “If you have a big island, as soon as the meal is over, everyone disperses; you don’t quite congregate in the same way,” she says. Islands also tend to put guests on one side, leaving the person doing the work standing alone on the other, which can sometimes feel like an imbalance of power. “It’s a question of, ‘Why does one thing feel good and not the other?’ And it comes down to being honest about the way we actually live vs. the way we think we should live,” Gambrel says. “When you experience an easy house where someone likes to cook and entertain, and

The dead can help bring good things to life

EAD LEAVES ON the ground, dead stems evident on trees and shrubs, dead plants where flowers and vegetables once strutted their stuff — how forlorn the yard can look this time of year. The urge is to tidy things up by blowing or raking leaves out of sight, pruning unwanted branches, and ripping dead plants out of the ground. Garden cleanup has its virtues but can do more harm than good if taken to excess. For instance, many gardeners like to clear dead leaves from beneath shrubbery, where many come to rest after fall winds give them a few swirls around the yard. In fact, trees and shrubs would just love to have their

And don’t bother with wound dressings to avert infections; they’re generally useless. If you can’t resist the urge to grab your pruning shears and beautify some trees and

VER WONDER WHEN rubber boots replaced shoes on rainy days? Hessian soldiers wore leather boots, and Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington, decided boots made of rubber would be more useful and keep feet drier. Charles Goodyear had vulcanized natural rubber in the 1850s to make tires and he sold the use of the patent to Hiram Hutchinson in 1853 to use for boots. They became a fashion statement for a few years, but then farmers began to wear them, and soldiers in both World Wars — the trenches often held rainwater and the boots kept feet dry. The boots continue to be used by many and they have changed from a semi-pointed toe to a rounded toe, an even to a metal toe to avoid accidents. Boots were first made of leather and went to the knees

WASHINGTON

Longterm U.S. mortgage rates down to 3.69% Mortgage rates slipped this week from the highest level since July and remain at historically low levels that are helping would-be purchasers to buy homes. Mortgage giant Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage declined to 3.69% from 3.78% the previous week. That’s also down more than a full percentage point from a year ago when it was 4.94%. Lower rates are helping support the housing market. Sales of existing homes rose nearly 4% in September from a year ago, while new home sales have soared 16% during that time. Yet potential homebuyers still face a shortage of available homes, which is pushing prices higher. The average rate on a 15year mortgage fell to 3.13% this week from 3.19% the previous week. — Associated Press

shrubs, work with plants — spirea, snowberry, sumacs and ninebark, for example — that are cold hardy and subject to few diseases. The place where you want to put most of your tidying energy is into your vegetable and flower beds. Old, infected plant parts left lying around is how such diseases as tomato leafspot

and peony botrytis get a jump on plants next season, so ripping dead, old plants, stems, or leaves out of the garden and carting them away to the compost also carries away potential disease problems. Another reason to clean up vegetables and flowers now is to let you get an earlier start next spring when the urge strikes you to plant. But restraint is needed even where vegetables and flowers grew. A few plants left here and there will capture snow

Establish your own china policy Old pieces can be sold, donated or repurposed By Jura Koncius

A

Washington Post

RECENT STORY ON unwanted old china generated a lot of responses — so many that it is worth sharing the best ideas for selling, donating, upcycling and repurposing. Readers had a lot to say about their own china policy and how they felt about being gifted several sets of family dishes with no place to keep them. Many never use the china and keep it out of guilt until they are eventually forced to deal with it by a move or other life event. A number of readers mentioned selling unwanted pieces through Replacements.com. Others said they turn to Pinterest or Etsy for ideas on how to repurpose plates, cups and serving pieces. If you search “upcycle china,” you’ll find ideas on using plates to edge your garden

border or making teacups into jewelry holders. There are DIY tips about how to turn broken pieces of Mom’s Spode into tabletops, rings or trays. Some crafters have painted skulls or Star Trek motifs on vintage plates. Tania Anthony emailed about her Etsy business the Vanity Dish, which upcycles vintage china saucers in gift form as soap display dishes. They have sort of a shabby-chic vibe and are sold with a brief history of the china pattern. Bruce Shulman sent photos of his kitchen walls, which are covered with his collection of 150 vintage Lenox dinner plates displayed on shelves. He says he enjoys the old patterns a lot more than the current variety. The shelves “are attached to the wall studs with long screws which are drilled through the edge of the wood and covered with wood plugs,” he wrote. “The shelves have grooves in the rear made with a router to hold the edge of each plate in place while it leans against the wall.” You might be able to put your own plates on photo

ledges that you can buy off the rack at stores such as West Elm or Ikea. Here are other ideas that showed up in the comments section, as emails or on social media. Class up your cat-feeding station. “I had saucers but no cups. I ended up giving them to my friend for her cats, who are now enjoying kitty crunchies on my ironware,” commented one reader. “I laugh every time I see them crunching the kibble.” Stick a candle in a cup. “A friend gave me a gift she made — a candle in a teacup

from her china set,” another commenter wrote. “I love it and her pattern was so nice I was surprised she was giving it away.” Smash and go. “I made fun backsplashes for my kitchen,” said one reader, who was into broken china mosaic. “I did the work on wood and framed it and hung it on the wall, as one would hang a heavy framed mirror, in place of a tiled surface. It can be removed at any time, changed out, with no more than a couple of heavy frame hooks.” For the birds. “I’ve seen old teacups repur-

posed as bird feeders,” one reader said. Keep a serving piece or two before you divest. “I kept the sugar and creamer from my great-grandmother’s set because I knew we’d use those daily,” read one comment. “The rest were given away.” We were also charmed by this poignant comment: “USE IT. It’s yours! Holidays — and not just Thanksgiving, birthdays, dinner guests, parties. ... Many of us dream of a luxurious lifestyle — why not live it now? Yeah, pieces get broken. But why leave them in a cabinet?”

Inspect the inspector for any home you’re buying By Michele Lerner

Special To The Washington Post

A professional home inspection helps home buyers learn about the condition of a property before making a purchase. But not all home inspectors are created equal. We asked Kathleen Kuhn, president and CEO of HouseMaster, a home inspection company, to share her insights into how consumers can pick a home inspector who will do the best job. “Consumers often only ask for information about the fees; however price should not be the deciding factor,” Kuhn wrote in an email. “Saving a

few dollars on a home inspection could cost you thousands down the road. Consumers should inspect the inspector when shopping for a home inspector.” Kuhn points out that many states require licensing or registration for a person to perform home inspections.

“These requirements are a good place to start, but there is no guarantee that the inspector is competent or is staying current,” wrote Kuhn. “Consumers should make sure that a home inspector has access to ongoing technical support and is tested every year — not just during initial licensing — to ensure they stay up-to-date on inspecting conditions in a home.” Home inspectors provide a report to buyers after the inspection. The report quality and features within it are also crucial to a good inspection, Kuhn wrote. Buyers can request sample reports from

inspectors before they hire them to see the level of detail they can expect. “Technology has played a big role in enhancing the home inspection experience, but consumers need to be sure they are working with a home inspector who has embraced these improvements,” Kuhn wrote. “Home buyers should ensure the inspector they hire includes digital images in their reports and offers a repair list generator feature, which is a feature that allows a consumer to pull needed repairs directly from the report and populate a list of repairs to submit to the home seller as

part of their negotiations.” In addition, Kuhn offers a simple but important tip: “Choose a home inspector who encourages you to go along on the inspection. Your home inspection should be an opportunity to learn about the house directly from the home inspector, which includes getting a firsthand look at any conditions or concerns identified. Asking questions on the spot can clarify parts of an inspection that may be confusing or concerning. If your home inspector insists on working alone, you should consider hiring another home inspector.”
