Have you ever walked into a space that did not look so hot, but you totally did not see it that way? When I walked into this kitchen for the very first time I saw what was in my head, not what was in front of my eyes! To be truthful, I don’t think I ever saw it any other way!
In the original footprint the kitchen was underneath where I was standing to take this picture.
Here’s the same view after we flipped the kitchen. Looks a little different, huh? 😂
I knew in order to make this kitchen what it needed to be, we were going to need to remove the wall from the dining room into the kitchen and open up the two spaces to make them one.
The old kitchen cabinets were about where this island ends.
Once the wall was removed we would then have a huge kitchen and breakfast area that would be perfect for entertaining and in every day living!
This is where the wall used to be.
I wanted to add some depth to the design. We used shiplap around the sides and back of the island and then chunky beams for the X on the end.
We also wanted to have a space for barstools or one long bench. To Create that space we went out further with the braces and the countertop.
My absolute favorite thing about this kitchen design is this sink cabinet and farmhouse sink! I just wanna smile every time I look at it! 😃 And maybe even dance little! 💃🏼 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 Yep, it makes me that happy! 😂
The floating shelves are also a showstopper!
Let’s just take a second to soak up all of the beauty of this custom made range hood! I mean, it just totally makes me 🤩🤩🤩!
The backsplash is White subway tile with white grout. The countertops are Quartz Carrera.
My favorite part of this house reno was the kitchen! But, my favorite part of this whole entire project was who I was able to work with! I’m so thankful that my long time friend and bestie asked me to partner with her to do this project! We had a blast! We turned something not so desirable into something that makes you want to come in the door and never want to leave! I hope you all love it as much as we do. 💗💗💗💗💗
