Kitchen is Soooo DONE

Well it's been awhile since I caught you all up on this client's kitchen....Here was the progression, Kitchen is Almost Done....Then around the holiday season we were in the thick of it, with a Kitchen is Almost Done - UPDATE.....And then yes I went "ghost". :)  But not for any reason other than my clients have had some personal issues they were dealing with and it was not ever a good time to come over to take Hero "after" shots, until just recently...

I guess the good thing with the major delay is it should feel completely fresh to you all once again....

So without further ado, here are some "befores" and "afters" of the whole kitchen project....

Before:  Faux painter just finished painting this wall...

After:  And for the good of the kitchen that wall had to come down. :)

Before:  Choppy walls, awkward spaces.

After:  Nice, big open space.


Before:  This laundry room, helped make the kitchen really small.

After: Laundry room moved, now not only a bar but a coffee bar right next to it...And lucky stripe extra, a real brick wall from the family room fireplace, looks like I planned it right?  I can't take credit.

Before:  This family needed storage...

After: So we took care of that problem.

Before:  What's there to say, can you think of anything? ;)

After:  We kept the price down by keeping the ovens

Before:  This was on the other side of Before picture #1 at the top.

After:  I didn't have a head on picture of the sink area but here is a photo that hopefully gives you an idea of how it looks now.

Before:  See that wall over to the left...Gone. :)

After:  Just a slight difference

Oh and my clients still love their kitchen...The newness hasn't rubbed off yet...

I would love to hear your comments about this kitchen remodel.

WOW! That's amazing. I love how many cabinets you have! I think that's the problem with most kitchens...hardly any cabinet space! I would love to cook in here. :)

Beautiful! My in-laws could have used your advice when building their house LOL! - they took what you just did ( similar to their old house) and made it what that house was... go figure.

Nice! I like the earth tones of brown. I've always wanted something like that for the kitchen with really unique accents. Thanks!

Great looking kitchen remodel. You should be very proud of your achievements with this one. Has a contemporary look but would still feel traditional.

I LOVE this kitchen! In a past life I was an interior designer too and I know that there is SO much more work that goes behind the scenes - it all looks so easy in the final product! Great photos too, really shows off the "before" and "after"! So glad SITS featured you!

Louise Ducote said...

Wow, that's just magical.

Kimberly at Rubber Chicken Madness said...

Gorgeous! I always wonder how people who knock down walls have the guts to actually do it :)

Joanne said...

Looks like they had a kitchen similar mine- small and awkward. Great job! Happy SITS day!

I'm sure they'll be happy with that kitchen remodel for a long-time to come. We gutted our kitchen a few years ago and absolutely love it!

Hope you are having a great SITS day!

Love it Love it Love it
This is the color I want to paint our formal living room and seeing it on walls has sparked my excitement. It's going to look so lovely.

The kitchen is absolutely amazing! Great job!

Venus said...

This is a really lovely redesign! It's amazing what taking a few walls down can do, right? Also, happy SITS day!

Jill from PJgamers said...

I think it looks gorgeous! Did it take a really long time to do all that?

Kennedi Rose at Face & Fitness said...

Visiting from SITS and I'm a huge fan of home design! I love how you opened up the spaces ... I have a wall that really needs to come down, or at least made into a knee wall, to open up the kitchen.

Laura said...

Open space and lots of places to hide their stuff. Perfect.

Sarah said...

Happy sits day!
