I've mentioned here and there about our house renovations and they have finally come to a close. We moved in the last week of February and were literally having our kitchen completely demo'd 3 weeks later. In a nutshell we had the old kitchen and living room opened up into one big open floorplan. There was also a formal living room at the front of the house that was closed off and instead of having a wasted space we opened up a large casing to make it accessible from our living room. We've made that space the dining room and are so glad for the "openness" that the floorplan didn't have before. We had the back deck replaced completely and had the exterior painted Sherwin Williams Alabaster white with Pavestone shutters.
here are a few pics before the demo...Doesn't everyone want a baby white ceiling fan in their kitchen?
And some of the finished product!
We definitely did a very basic, low budget kitchen reno in case we decide to sell in a few years...white shaker stock cabinets (not custom), white subway tile with grey grout, quartz countertops, nickel hardware, glass pendants, stainless steel appliances, with the gas range by far being our favorite. We actually plan to trade out the island pendants for something more dramatic looking but I've been shopping for months and the only ones I like are forever out of stock on Wayfair. These were just a cheap Home Depot option for now. I've also since sewed up the curtains into roman shades.
Lots of little updates to do here and there. We've been trying to swap out all the brass door hardware for bronze, shop for curtains & rugs, etc. but all of that will just take time. Not to mention Ryder wants bunk beds! I think Ryan and I need clones of ourselves to get everything done.
