Originally we decided to redo the kitchen on the advice of a realtor, when we were thinking of moving a little more imminently. But now, this renovation kind of exploded and is so beautiful that we have to stay for a few more years to get some enjoyment out of it (and recover).
I think it's totally worth it.
Here are two before pictures:
|Looking in towards the dining room after we cleaned it all out.|
I HATED that wallpaper from the start.
I did not install it. :)
|Looking towards the fence, you'll see|
a new picture with the same fence but
it looks WAY different.
Here is the transformation:
|Love the tiny tiles accenting behind|
the stove... up close they look like
seaglass. And isn't that window area
SO MUCH BETTER?
|New pull-sprayer faucet, bump-out window that|
makes the whole thing seem sooo much bigger,
and counter-depth fridge so we can walk around
each other. Love that tile.
|Bump out, unobstructed view of the backyard and|
The Shed That Bryce Built.
|SO MUCH MORE usable space after shrinking|
that window. Amazing the difference that
|The glorious bookcase. Also hiding the doorway to|
the cellar stairs.
|Obviously we will have to repaint the dining room,|
can't wait to get that all back to normal.
The floors are slate Pergo, look SO REAL but
are laminate. Sneaky, sneaky.
|Looking into the dining room, similar view as a before shot.|
|I just can't get enough of this After shot to compare with the Before...|
Such. A. Difference.
The end, until we get it looking a little more lived in, a little less catalog-y.
