Hello friends! You may have seen my first remodeling post about our Flagstaff vacation home, but if you missed it, you can read it here! I promised that I would share more details room-by-room along with all of my sources and today I am back to share the kitchen details. When we looked at this house as a possible purchase, we knew this kitchen had so much potential! We had a few ideas for opening it up, including relocating the refrigerator to the opposite wall to allow us to open up the room to the dining room and family room and to create a large breakfast bar. We lost some cabinet space by doing this, but it isn't an issue because this is our vacation home, which means much less "stuff" to store! While I'm obsessed with white kitchens, I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to keep the cabinets. First because the house is in the pines, I wanted to be sure it had a warm, cozy cabin feel. Second, the quality of the cabinets isn't great. However, after we closed on the house we realized that the cabinet doors had recently been replaced and budget-wise, it just made sense to keep them. We spruced them up by adding 6" crown moulding and oil-rubbed bronze hardware.
As you can see above, we also removed a section of cabinets/counter on the right side to open up the kitchen even more and allow for more space to walk through.
We were thrilled to have Lowe's involved with our remodel and we had the opportunity to pick out some fantastic items there. I love how the single basin stainless steel sink and oil -rubbed bronze faucet we picked out. The sink is so modern and sleek, plus we plan on hosting Thanksgiving each year at the house, so it makes it easy to wash those large pots, pan and serving dishes. Notice the white subway tile backsplash? Love it. So glad we went with this classic choice.
We also had this wall of cabinets and desk removed and replaced with a built-in bench for the kitchen table. The kitchen flows so much better now and is much more functional for our needs.
I hope you like our choices! We had so much fun making these changes and I couldn't be happier with how the kitchen turned out! Here are a few behind the scenes instagram photos!
