The kitchen was one of the first things we updated when we moved into the house.
Here are a few before pictures… (they are from the MLS listing when we bought)
We’ve done quite a bit, but there are a few things we still want to do. First of all, we won’t ever move into another house that does not have a walk in pantry. It’s a pain having to deal with deep cabinets and losing things. I’m thinking of doing some sort of open, tall cabinet, on the end, by the refrigerator.
One of our next steps is to update the microwave, oven & trash compactor. We’ve been having issues with the oven and since we have a stainless dishwasher and fridge, we really want everything to match.
We always joked with my parents about how much they loved their trash compactor. Then, we moved into a house with one. I must say, it’s awesome. It smashes trash and we don’t have to take it out around the clock, like I have a feeling we would be doing. It doesn’t smell because there is a filter, which is also nice.
As for the cabinets, I do plan to do a post once the entire kitchen and area off the kitchen is done, but again, who knows when that will be. We take our time around here 😉 We did go with cabinet renewal. We kept the cabinets we had and them updated to our liking. I love how it turned out. If our granite was a different color, I would have probably done solid white cabinets, but since it’s got quite a bit of yellow and darker tones, we did a stain for an antique finish. Here is one side. This post shows some of another.
Are there any updates you are wanting to do to your kitchen? I love how a few steps can completely change the look!
