The kitchen was and is a complex room in the house. The demands placed on it in the first decade of the twentieth century are nothing compared to 21st century demands. Then it was a workroom, a utilitarian space, yet far more complicated than the rest of the house. During the ‘Arts & Crafts’ movement, it was believed that family life would center in the living room around the hearth. Today, the kitchen has supplanted the living room as the central place at home. Not only must it be functional, it is seen as a gathering place for family and guests, a status symbol, a place for projects, and a vehicle for self-expression. Bungalow kitchens are an important piece of history-the history of the house, of the twentieth century, of women, and of technology. As a hands-on restorer, Jane Powell has brought ten vintage homes back to life and sold them to appreciative buyers, and continues the ongoing restoration of her own home, the 1905 Jesse Matteson house. The practical experience of restoring houses has armed her with the kind of concrete knowledge that can only be gained by screwing up, and thus she is qualified to help her clients avoid many of the pitfalls that go along with restoring an older home.
