Kitchen Remodel Reveal


Thursday, January 5, 2017

I am finally ready to reveal our kitchen. This has been a labor of love and a complete pain in the butt. But I am so happy with the results (a few things need to be fixed) and I am loving my new kitchen.

If you remember, this is what my kitchen looked like before...old, outdated and boring.

 Linoleum floors, dated cabinets, old stovetop

 Old double oven (only the bottom worked)

And this was during the demo.

And now I present to you the (almost) finished product.
renovated kitchen, gray and white
We used some leftover counter top to make a Nevada cheeseboard/cutting board and a soap dish. We still have a lot of leftover counter top that we haven't decided what to use it for. The cabinets have been refaced with new hardware.

We had to raise our cabinet over the stove due to the space between the stove and the cabinet. It needed to be at least 22 -24 inches for proper ventilation and ours was not. They moved the cabinet up, we installed the new range hood and added the back splash feature. The oven is Samsung and it is gas with both regular and convection settings.

 We installed Emser Explorer Series Paris tile which brings in all the colors together.

It is hard to see, but we used some counter top as the window's ledge. We installed a Bosche dishwasher and a farm house sink.

 We added pendant lights with Edison bulbs in them. This also shows a more close-up of the counter tops.

 We added tile on the other side of the breakfast bar for a place to house our chairs. Before they sat on carpet and it got really dirty under them.

 We whitewashed the brick wall, painted inside the indoors bbq and laid a piece of the counter top inside of it. This is where our microwave sits which we plan to get a new one.

 We got a new refrigerator due to ours being old and small. We would have liked to cut out more brick to get a bigger fridge, but it was too costly and would require new support beams. All appliances are stainless steel.

renovated kitchen, gray and white cabinet
 We took out our double oven and turned it into a cabinet. We painted the inside black and our contractor added in a cabinet backing and brackets. We used leftover counter tops for the shelving as well.

renovated kitchen, gray and white, gray subway tile
 I wanted gray subway tile as my back splash. I searched for the perfect color to match everything and the tile was back ordered for 5 weeks. My contractor contacted the vendor and after many talks, they expedited it and I got the suede gray tile I had dreamed of. Seriously one of my favorite things about this kitchen. It has a Snow White tile grout with it.

renovated kitchen, gray and white, mudroom
 We used to have extra cabinets that we removed to make this part pantry, part mudroom. I painted the wall a light gray and we got the bench from West Elm. I still am looking for a coat rack or wood to make one myself.

And there you have it. My kitchen is pretty much complete and now to move onto the next project....the bathroom.

  6. Danielle, it's GORGEOUS!!! I love the look of everything! That backsplash has me swooning! I've been wanting to do white subway tile for a while but the hubby doesn't like that idea, what's wrong with him!? We are set to remodel our bathrooms next too, I'm hoping it's a smooth transition!

  7. Oh my gosh - I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! I know it was a lot of frustration but I think its worth it. Its so beautiful.
    I'm obsessed with gray & white anyways.
    Love you made the old oven space a cabinet. More storage is always a good thing.
    That grey backsplash is just beautiful.
    & I'm LOVING the little extra cutting board from the counter top. I bet you love being in your kitchen now.

  8. What a beautiful kitchen transformation! I love the colors and all of the changes you made! Great job.

  9. It's BEAUTIFUL! I really want to paint our cabinets white some day. I also hate our countertops, because they're tile with grout and stuff gets stuck in the grout AND there are spots where the grout has worn away. We'll definitely at least get new countertops at some point while we live here!

    I also really love what you did with the space where the ovens used to be! I wondered what you were going to do there. And using the extra countertops in other places is such a good idea. Also subway tile...I LOVE subway tile!!!

  23. I love how you turned the old space where the double oven was into a cabinet area. Great idea! My husband and I also had to do a remodel, and we had a similar issue with one oven working and one not. We ended up going with double ovens again, but now I'm wondering if we even needed both of them.

    1. Thank you so much. We went back and forth on the double ovens and decided that cabinet space was a better idea. Now I just have one big oven. Our space was too tiny to find a double oven for it. It was either cutting the brick or custom making one.
