Bright and Blue and Beautiful; Kitchen Remodel!

05 August 2011

Bright and Blue and Beautiful; Kitchen Remodel!

Well, the kitchen at my daughter’s house is now complete.  My daughter and son-in-law are ready to move in and start making their house their home.  It has been a long 6 weeks, but oh so worth it.  I have so much to show you, but I wanted to start with the kitchen remodel first.  It went from a 90′s style “L” shaped kitchen with very little cupboard space and A LOT of wasted floor space.

{Don’t be alarmed with the black stuff on the very back wall.  It isn’t mold, it is actually the remnants of sound proofing foam that was taken off those walls.    Right off the kitchen there was a set up  for a recording studio from the previous owner. Go figure. }
So once we gutted the kitchen, I laid out the new floor plan {orange tape, very professional} to maximize the all the space we could.  We took down the wall that separated the kitchen from the living room which enabled me to add an island.
And here it is all finished!  {well minus a couple of cabinet pulls that we forgot to get} Can we get a WOO HOO?  I am so happy with how it all turned out. The kitchen has so much of a brighter felling to it now don’t you think?  Can’t wait to find some cool bar stools to add that finishing touch to the island.
There is no accessorizing going on as you can see. They haven’t moved in yet, so I didn’t want to stage the house just for these pictures.  I wanted to show you the design more than the “stuff” anyways so I skipped the staging.  I want to do a more in depth post soon to share all my bargain finds {lots of these!} and sources for all the other items.   But for now, here are more pictures of the finished room, enjoy!
Don’t you just love that red washer and dryer! It makes that tiny little laundry room off the kitchen so fun.
Here is the pocket door we put in to hide the laundry room.

OmyGoodness. I absolutelyyyy loveee your kitchen! I have a laundry room that's off the kitchen (idk who thought of that) and have been trying to figure out how to tie my laundry room in with the kitchen.. especially since I just bought a new washer and dryer set in red as well.

Thanks for the inspiration! Now I'm excited to do my kitchen!

lovely, the new floorplan is WAY more practical. I like that the laundry is right off the kitchen; seems very practical.

So pretty! I love the blue light fixtures, and you're right...the red appliances contrast with the blue walls and add a fun pop of colour.
