It's done ... finally done! You may remember me mentioning our kitchen re-do a few months ago. (Take a look back to see where we started!) Or you may recall me gushing over yellow kitchens a few years ago, back when this remodel was our brain child. Well, the yellow has become a reality and now I can finally share our before and after pics.
Here was our kitchen before. There was nothing wrong with it, but we felt that our house deserved a more modern kitchen that matched the feel of the rest of our rooms. We were in awe of all of the cabinets and storage options that IKEA offered, so we began planning. The walls and ceilings (which you can't really see here) needed a ton of drywall work, which Bo did himself. And he and his dad laid the gray floor tile. Such handy guys. It was pretty major stuff.
Here's the other side of the room, which we had recently updated with stainless appliances. We ended up gutting the entire room and starting fresh.
And here's what it looks like now. White with a nice color block of yellow and gray countertops.
Clean lines, white and bright.website/gallery, you have to check out all of the custom options they offer. Formica is cool. And it gave us the clean look we were going for.
(And yes, we had to keep Gene Simmons at his post on top of the fridge. He's always been there.) Our other favorite feature on our cabinets and drawers is the quiet-close feature, which I'm sure you've seen in action if you've visited and IKEA show room. If you accidentally slam a door, it catches and closes it quietly. We added a white desk to the wall next to this one for our Mac to sit on, and we plan to add a glass tile backsplash in the next few weeks.
