Our Total Kitchen Remodel

5 Oct

The biggest thing we did to our new house before moving in was gut and remodel the kitchen.

Because it looked like this. Not the worst, but not what we wanted either.kitchen-4-a

We had our contractor remove everything of course. Only took him a day! Walter thought the kitchen fell through a tiny hole in the floor into the basement.

I ordered white, wood cabinets from ProSource that are made by the Amish in the United States (thank you to Bobby for helping me design the new kitchen!). They also have soft close drawers! And they were only a week late on delivery!

I had everything so tightly scheduled so we could move in in a month, that both the flooring and granite people ended up at the house at the same time. No, that month wasn’t stressful at all!

The house started coming together. It was fun to watch the process. It was slightly less fun to make sure everything got done on time and done right, but luckily I’m Type-A enough that I did enjoy that too.

And then, suddenly — oh yeah and a few extra months of work later — it was finished!

As a reminder, it looked like this:

And now!!! I love having the kitchen and living spaces together. Makes for cozy, comfortable living.

Who doesn’t want all their appliances crammed in together?

Ah, nice and bright and open! And our awesome woodworking friend Alex made and installed our floating shelves for us.

They had a little eat in area (and a window we made disappear).

Which we turned into the fridge/pantry area.

Lovely giant wall in the middle of the room!

Brought up to the 21st century! I kind of have a Parisian café/1950’s diner theme going.

It’s much, much smaller than our kitchen in our old house, but once I got everything organized and realized I don’t need a million cabinets to store stuff I rarely use (hello basement storage!), I love it.
