Excited to share a little update of what is happening with the kitchen in our house, I apologize for the lack of sharing, it has just been a slow moving train and turns out electrical isn’t all that exciting to show progress of! When we first saw this house, I knew it was the house for us, but was completely intimidated by the kitchen. Like, couldn’t even visualize what we could do with it and had no idea where to start. After we found out the severity of the electrical work and learned that every ceiling & wall would need opened up, I decided to just wait until that was done to make any plans.
Once the woodwork was removed and we could see the ceiling without all of the distracting angles, we plotted out where all of the new recessed lights would go & decided to take out the door to the bathroom that was plop in the middle of the working kitchen. It is obvious that the refrigerator was an afterthought in this layout, as is common with old houses. As we work through plans for the new kitchen, we decided that we will move the fridge further into the kitchen, where the existing bathroom door was & will center the stove on the same wall it was already on. The sink will stay where it is (I have always wanted a sink that looks out a window!!), but will be a little better centered. We will do a farm sink again, smaller than our last one, and this antique brass faucet!
The new cabinets will be white, although I did love the greige from our last house, I think white is better suited for this style of home. I would loooove to see what this kitchen looked like back in the 30’s before this 90’s update! 😉 I want to mimic the style of the original built ins upstairs, with an inset shaker style & maybe some crystal or antique brass knobs. And last, we will add a large wood island in the center for extra storage. I can’t wait to share the updated pictures with the refinished floors & the lights installed later this week!! It will still be a while before we do the actual kitchen remodel, so it will stay like this for a while as we work out the details & design.
So what’s the verdict, can you envision the finished kitchen or are you still thinking we might be crazy?! 🙂
We are so excited to finally be moved in & make so many memories in this home, and of course have you all along for the ride! XO470
