Okay, everyone, put on your seat belts because you are about to be blown away. These pictures are not edited at all. I’m going to list the before picture(s) of a certain part of the kitchen and then the after photos of the same area. First, here is a look at the kitchen:Area I – before – This is where the fridge used to be. It was in a really odd location. There had once been a half wall overlooking the dining room that had an ugly yellow railing in the way. I shudder just remembering it haha.Area I – After – In place of the fridge, cabinets were ordered for seating with an upholstered bench. In-kitchen eating was important to them, so a base was built and the cabinet company made a table out of the same quartz used for the countertops. The legs of the table were stained and a chandelier was installed above the table. Wainscotting was installed and the color above the wall is a pale grayish-blue. Eventually, this painted area will display the kids’ artwork. The fridge also now has its own cabinet. See below.
Area II – the island and the left side of the window. The island was so out of place in the kitchen. The appliances needed to be updated and the flooring was atrocious. All the way at the end of the counter, there is a door. We turned that door into a blackboard, which also serves as a secret entrance to their pantry.
Area II – after – Here is the secret pantry door that opens when you push on it. Also, I can sew, but this is my first time sewing a curtain. My mom started it and after I realized I gave her the wrong orientation, I had to redo some parts of it. Area III – before – the right side of the window. Again, all the appliances were out of place. The double oven took up too much space.
Area III – after – the backsplash picks up a lot of the design in the kitchen. The faucet is Kohler, the dishwasher is Bosch, the range is Wolf by Subzero, the microwave and fridge are Samsung. Here are some other details of the kitchen:
