Before, I get into more of the photos of our new kitchen here's a reminder of what the kitchen looked like when we first viewed our house (the house was tenanted previously). I actually kind of liked these cabinets, but it was SO impractical. The counters were so low that they had cut a hole into the floor to fit a dishwasher.
So now that you have the background on our kitchen escapades, here are all the detail photos. I'm hoping to write another post that will show you some of the actual cabinet details (i.e., how we placed drawers, shelves, and a coffee nook into the pantries, the design of the cabinet doors, building in the fridge, etc.) later on.
I have a love hate relationship with this stove. I love how it functions. The dual fuel range is great for baking and cooking, but man is it ever clunky! I really tried to find something a little more streamlined, but no one could guarantee that another range would work as well and Wolf only has wall ovens that are more modern. The wall oven did not work for an under the cooktop installation as the door would have hit the floor when open. It also seemed super wasteful to replace this range with the same oven just for looks. We were able to build our lower cabinets a little deeper so that it stuck out much less. Maybe I'll try and find some black knobs to replace the red ones.
This is the spot that's awaiting the shelf. I ended up putting up the Ikea Ranarp sconce for now while we wait to see how the shelf looks in place. I didn't want to do the junction box until the shelf is in place and we determine just the right spot for it. I also reused this art I made awhile ago. Again, that will likely be replaced in due time. For now, I kind of like this cute little sconce and art pair.
These salt and pepper grinders along with a couple black knives (seen further down) were my Mother's Day gifts and I've patiently waited to use them until our kitchen was close enough to being done.
This faucet is the real deal. It's a classic and so well built. I wanted to show you that it doesn't have a vegetable spray, but tilts so that you can clean every part of the sink. The sink is a single bowl with very tight radius corners and an adjustable metal grate.
This is a print I got for the boys' room, but it somehow ended up here. I'm liking it there for now especially with the Marimekko fabric/curtain next to it. I've made some changes to our dining room over the past little while and will have to share that with you too.
So that's my so close to being completely finished kitchen. I hope you like it! I'll try and get the sources for everything listed for you in another post. I think this post is long enough already! You might be surprised at how we sourced all these high end finishes and appliances at a fraction of the cost. Thanks again to those of you who have been patiently waiting to see this kitchen renovation come together. We're so close!
