My last post was all about my bathroom remodel, so now I want to share my kitchen remodel with all of you! Last year I posted some pictures of my kitchen and asked for advice. Well, a year later I was finally able to create the kitchen of my dreams!
When I bought the house, I loved the fact that the galley kitchen was so large. At 9′x14′, it was one of the largest galley kitchens I had seen. It was also one of the most awkward and ugly! The original yellow tile from 1923 was everywhere, and there was a partial wall that broke up the appliance wall into two areas. All of the appliances were on one wall, making it very uncomfortable for cooking. And to top it all off, most of the cabinets on the opposite wall were only 18″ deep because of where the doorway was located. I knew the only thing I could do was gut the entire kitchen, so that is where the renovation started!
To make better use of the space, I removed the partial wall that housed the waste pipe and hot and cold water lines, moving those back against the wall so there is only a 4″ bump out. I kept the sink and dishwasher where they were, but moved the fridge, stove and microwave. To make the space lighter and brighter, I chose white cabinets, backsplash and countertops. The herringbone pattern in the floor tile makes the room look wider, and the wallpaper accent wall gives the room a “Wow” factor. Wondering what that hole in my custom pantry door is? It’s a cat door so my cat can access her litter box!
What is your favorite element of the space?
