KITCHEN RENOVATION





I have 2 bathrooms and 1.5 kitchens in the works.  The .5 is just new countertops and lights but that still counts right?

The other kitchen is the subject today and it is one I did in 2006!  Actually it was a whole house renovation at the time.  Lisa Mowry remember this one?

I think it's kind of amazing that it is still relevant today.....although they are ready for a new look!

I had to take these from the magazine it was published in!


White with subway tile and wood accents....along with shaker cabinet doors which are so popular now!  Damn how did I know all that....ha ha.

The real problem was the columns which were purely for looks.....not structural.....not really sure why we did that!  It was time for them to go.  


Here are some of the things we are addressing.....

We are cutting the island down to counter height and bring it out 12" so it can be a functional place to dine. 

Time for new countertops and painting out the island white.

This new Silestone is hot off the market!  It is called Calacatta Gold and comes in a pretty "suede finish".

New white backsplash.  

These cabinets were originally painted SW Creamy so they had a yellow feeling to them.  We are going with BM White Dove [duh my fav]

Here are some progress pictures.....


Since we only needed 2 cabinets it was just as cost effective to build new ones rather than building them up.


We had an electrician come to widen the location of the pendants since the columns were gone....and of course we are changing out the lights!

To these from Rejuvenation.


 Shelves are in and cabinets higher.....new doors being made.



As with any renovation project there are always issues.....the guy who came to template the countertops has some doubts about getting them out in this area.....stay tuned!




Changing out the sink [although not sure the new one will fit so stay tuned....crikey] and faucet.....


To my fav Grohe faucet

Here is the original wet bar area.....

Which of course is also getting a facelift!

Took down the cabinets.....adding shelves and changing the backsplash to this....


Pretty huh!


Taking out the sink and cabinet below to add a Scotsman ice maker that makes pellet ice!


Apparently that type of ice is all the rage....who knew:)

I am kind of excited to see this one finished....and lucky for me my clients are so darn chill.....which is kind of important with this kind of renovation.

Let's see if we are still friends when it's all said and done....yikes.

And there you have it....gotta get everything under control before Thanksgiving.  

Starting to sweat.
