Late last year I began remodeling a little kitchen in a guest cottage on our property. This project had a significantly lower budget than the Indiana project or the Midland duplex remodel so this kitchen won’t be gracing the pages of…anything. But I think it’s a great improvement!
The footprint of the kitchen is pretty small, its only about 8′ x14′ and as you can tell from the dimensions–narrow. Fortunately, the kitchen has a pantry which offers the opportunity for additional storage.
Here is the before,
Hallway with ugly sink, scary fluorescent light and open shelving, looking in to kitchen
I think the thought behind the sunshine yellow wall color was–trying to brighten the space and detract from its decaying fixtures. It wasn’t working for me.
Inspiration and points of reference for the remodel,
Focusing on the open shelving which is an IKEA shelf & bracket.
Seriously considered butcher block/wood countertops, talked with a number of trades people and did internet research
considering bronze hardware
Marinate on that for a bit, Part II will be demolition.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
