Demo started back in January and the goal was to take out the chimney to give us a some more wall space. I really wanted to have the stove and fridge wall as a feature wall as it is the first part of the kitchen you see when you come in from the entry. Definately wanted to get rid of the microwave over the stove and have the microwave built into the island instead.
This bank of cupboards served as a breakfast bar and gave the feeling of a hallway where the stools were. We thought with taking out the chimney and removing that little bit of wall it would open up the kitchen a lot.
Let's see...dreams for my feature wall would include: slide in range, pot filler, decorative range hood with a shelf, and subway tiles.........
How did we do! I love, love, love this wall now! All up to date and modern country!
This side of the kitchen didn't change a whole lot, the layout of cupboards and where the dishwasher was stayed the same. A new industrial sink and faucet are the special newcomers! I never in a million years thought I would have granite countertops...Darrell pulled out all the stops on that one! I guess one good thing about having a small kitchen. Those countertops sure shine!!
Taking out the corner shelves by the window makes it feel more open and gives cleaner lines. I think the pictures and the little shelf help fill the space. Last minute Darrell used up leftover moulding and created two little corner shelves off the end of the cupboard.
I love the range hood area and can't wait to decorate it for different seasons
We put the microwave in the island.
Love, love the island :)
The office is just off the kitchen.
The office used to be the boys bedroom.
The dining room is off the other side of the kitchen.
We thought about taking out the walls between the kitchen
and dining room,,,I am glad we didn't
There you have it!! It is small, but has everything I need and a
few extras that give it some wow factor!
Thanks for stopping by...as you can see there were too many things to just list my favorite thing in my kitchen. I guess my all time favorite would have to be my hubby!! He makes all our "big ideas" a reality and I love him!!! I find him in the kitchen a little bit more too these days, he is happy with the results.
