|New Kitchen and Keeping Room.|
So.... I know that I have spoken before about my first clients....the kitchen/dining/bathroom/keeping room renovation that we began back in January. Well the actual renovation was finished in May, and we have been finalizing the decor, rearranging furniture, etc. I zhushed a bit and brought in the pillows, and slipcovers while they were on vacation last week, and ya'll it was so much fun!
I would like to share the results with you....a little trip down renovation lane...from conception to completion.
Here is the kitchen before...
|the demo day...one of my favorite stops on renovation lane.|
|This small eating nook was to become part of the kitchen|
BTW: They were the best clients to work with, were able to make decisions easily, and knew what they liked and didn't like (which is sometimes half the battle)! I was told they wanted light and bright and airy....updated traditional.
Here is the space down to the studs.
|You see that beam...couldn't go, so we COFFERED the ceiling...YAY! Nothing like letting a home speak to you.|
That was the beam that seperated the eating nook from the kitchen before.
|walls came down, a bedroom was made into an eating room, and keeping room, and the bathroom door was relocated.|
|Doesn't it look so big...light and bright!|
|This galley kitchen looks so much bigger than it did before.|
Seeing a design come from my head to this, is just the best! I tell my husband that he likes to Mountain Bike and go really fast...well, design and renovation is like my endorphine rush, it is my mountain biking....without all the sweat! (well, maybe a little bit of sweat:)
