Wouldn’t it be nice to have a brand new kitchen? How many of you have dreamed of completely renovating your own kitchen? Not everyone can take on such a big and disruptive project. Sometimes a makeover makes more sense. That’s exactly what we did with our 20 year old kitchen.
Since the layout of the kitchen and quality of the cabinetry was good, LabDoc and I agreed to keep the basics. Several years ago, we painted the oak cabinets and walls in Benjamin Moore’s Weimaraner. The countertops were the original pinky/brown granite as shown below.
Before the Makeover
And now for the transformation…
Here’s our new look – crisp, clean and coordinated!
To improve the focal wall of the kitchen, we removed an upper cabinet on either side of the sink window. The backsplash was extended to the ceiling.
We added new countertops paired with white subway tile and gray grout.
For a finishing touch, the recessed lights over the cooktop were replaced with two antiqued mercury glass pendants.
