There are few things that I think are more important than a great kitchen in a home. It is usually the heart of the home, the space used most often, and the spot that needs to be the most functional. While our flip in general had great rooms and bones, the kitchen remodel needed to be completely ripped out and re-done. In some homes you can salvage the cabinets, but that was not the case here. Not only were they pretty beat up, we also needed a different configuration, so new cabinets were a must! The scale of the work we needed to do for this has meant that we are holding off on our staircase renovations that we had planned. When we get around to it, we will still use Pear Stairs though!
It is always SO much fun seeing a space once everything is out! A clean slate is the best!
This room is really interesting in the fact that the left wall is straight, but the right wall comes at a diagonal. Its the little details like that that made us all fall in love with this house- even when it was ugggly:)
For the remodel we did it all. Added hardwood floors, new Shaker style cabinets, our beloved Okite countertops, beveled subway tile backsplash, farmhouse sink, new appliances, fun fixtures, and open shelving. Yep- all the fixings!
Whenever I look at this kitchen I can’t decide what is my favorite part. But I really, really do love the subway tiled vent over the stove, and the farmhouse sink..as always!
By opening up the right wall a little bit we also were able to add a overhang on the counter to create a breakfast bar. No one could ever complain about having ‘too much seating’ right?!
And that room to the left in the above photo? Thats the pantry, with the laundry room behind the corner of it:
Overall, I just love this kitchen and how it turned out. Yes, it was a complete overhaul, but one that was so worth it!
Whats your favorite part of the kitchen? Anything that you think we were nuts for doing?!
