Finally, the kitchen is done!
It still amazes me when I look at pictures of the old Kitchen to see how far we've come. I'm so proud that we did it all ourselves minus the electrical and plumbing, we left that to the professionals. The kitchen is a small galley with 3 different doorways leading into it. We gutted it and replaced everything except the drywall.
I originally was going to paint the walls the lovely blue that we have in our dining room but once I primed all the walls white I loved how bright and cheery it looked.I did tie in the blue paint behind the lower shelf on the sink side, I think it added just a little color that I was looking for.
this was such an unused space, so we added pantry cabinets to flank the window and built a window bench. This little nook was meant to be there and it works great in this kitchen, not to mention all the storage the pantry cabinets hold.
Talk about no counter space, I hated the fridge being on the right side, it blocked the view of the kitchen when you entered the room and stuck out way to far. I had several wishes for the new kitchen and one of them was a counter depth fridge, I love counter depth fridges especially in a small kitchen likes ours. The other wish was a slide-in stove, I love them because visually they don't crowd the backsplash area, just clean lines with no distraction. Well after searching and waiting for a sale I got both my wishes. We moved the fridge where the built-in oven used to be. I can't tell you how much it opened up the kitchen.
We built a cabinet for the fridge so it would have a built in look in plus it added more storage and display for above.
I love my new kitchen and wouldn't change a thing.
