This has been a long time coming, but our kitchen is all finished! First, let’s take a look back at what it looked like when we moved in.
Woah, I think I had blocked this kitchen out of my mind and I forgot just how much help it really needed!
We moved into this house mid-December 2015 and by February, we knew it was time to get the ball rolling on the kitchen reno. We worked with Cabinets.com and came up with a new layout that made sense for us. We wanted the sink to be moved under the window (a new, double the size window!) and wanted a custom range hood to be a focal point, so we moved the range to where the sink is shown above. After a few other slight revisions, we nailed down the plans with our cabinet designer and placed our order! There are tons of cabinet types and finishes at cabinets.com, but we knew from the very beginning that we wanted a white shaker style. Our new cabinets shown below are called Deerfield Shaker II Maple Bright White.
Before we move on, if you haven’t seen the first two kitchen updates I posted, you should definitely check those out first! It’s really neat to see the whole process all come to life.
Update #1 shows all the demolition and the selection process of our counters and other finishes.
Update #2 shows the flooring updates and more about the cabinets and their installation!
So in summary, we went from this:
The cabinet above is our pantry, microwave cabinet, and the drawers are for various kitchen tools. Since our kitchen is not wide enough for an island, we wanted to create an area for seating of some type, so that’s why we made this little breakfast bar area with stools.
You can see above how we replaced the old, small window with one about double the width. I can’t tell you how much of a difference that made! Let there be light!
Got to have that Beautycounter Hand Wash. 😉
Our sink is the Nantucket Sinks Hyannis 30. It’s made of Italian Fireclay and I can’t tell you how beautiful it is in person. It’s completely solid and polished beautifully. It’s pretty much the prettiest thing in the kitchen, if you ask me.
