Kitchen ReDO!!

Right before the holidays we finished up a kitchen reno.
 I finally got back in to take a couple of photos...

Here is the before. Its dark and feels very closed in. Circa late 1980's.

But on the positive the kitchen layout was working so rather than tear down walls 
(and possibly find scary problems) we kept the same footprint . That way the flooring which was fairly new could also stay as is. The new appliances also stayed in place.
 Our client wanted fresh light & bright without breaking the bank! 

WTH? why is this cupboard here?? First thing to go!

Happy to share too that the old cabinetry was salvaged and taken away to be
 reused in a basement suite apartment :)

  • New pendant lighting (Home Depot) along with recessed lighting - ALL ON DIMMERS! ...I yell loudly to anyone who will listen :)  (thanks Gorge Electrical!)
  • Fresh white solid wood cabinets with shaker style doors  (Morning Kitchens)           Large pantry with pull our soft close drawers and new drawers on bottom replace ill functioning shelf style cupboards on bottom ( Whats that waaaay in the back?!?)
  •  Stacked tile back splash (Costco!)

Ya...remember where that oddball cabinet was hanging? GONE! ...opens everything up.

A nice fresh new look! Happy homeowners :) 
A text  that I got from them: 
"Hey Tracey we are sitting in here just loving our kitchen and living room...thought you should know."


Have a great weekend!
