Kitchen Remodel, Keeping the Best from the Past!!

10 September 2010

Don't forget to link up to our Remodelaholic Anonymous party today
for a chance to be featured on Remodelaholic!

This project was sent into me months ago, and I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get it posted!  Maggie from Holyoke Home has been working on a kitchen remodel, and I must say this is quite a nice redo.  They found some great boards under the existing walls and painstakingly restored them, if you want to see the whole story click on the link above, but here is the before and after:

Kitchen Before:
So - Here's the kitchen layout we decided on:
Amazing, right?  How did we get all that stuff in there?  Sheer.  Will.

All told, we spent five hours at Ikea, during which we picked out countertop material (and edging), kick plates, cupboards, shelves and pulls.  I know: How could it take five hours to do that?!  Monkeys do more before  7 am than we did all day at Ikea!  (by the way?  We planned to buy our sink, faucet, and stainless steel prep table at Ikea, but the quality of the stainless was questionable, so we took a pass.)
- Cabinets: Ikea AKURUM in white with white ADEL fronts
- Pulls: Ikea GREJ 
- Counter: Ikea Grey NUMERAR with stainless steel edging
- Shelves: Ikea GRUNDTAL 
- Stainless steel prep table: sourced from a local restaurant supplier. 
- Sink and faucet: ordered from Highland Hardware 
- We inherited the stove and fridge from the previous owners, and the center butcher block prep table was ours.

I love that they used the original floors, revamped the old v-groove wainscoting, and did you see that awesome ceiling... that alone makes me drool!
They made a once awkward space 
quite usable and beautiful!  
Great Job!

Looks beautiful! How have you enjoyed your IKEA cabinets? Are you happy with the quality? I am looking to either refurbish or redo my cabinets, and these happen to be the ones I like! Are they worth it?

That has got to be one of the ugliest retro kitchen I've ever seen. Which makes the after pics all the more special. I'm super impressed with their vision and hard work. Their new kitchen is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
God's blessings,
Sarah :D
