You may remember a few months ago, that I shared some pics of a small reno that turned into a much larger reno. What I loved about this project, was that the homeowners were so willing to go the extra mile to make the renovation truly great.

First we demoed the kitchen, the floor, and the wall between the kitchen and the dining room. Then we put in new hardwood floors, white shaker cabinets, quartz countertops, a grey backsplash with white grout, new lighting, and all new appliances and fixtures. What a difference!



Rather than go with a full island, we decided to create a peninsula where the dining room wall used to be, and added a bartop counter, with 1-foot depth cabinet beneath it for extra storage (since they would be losing all of the upper cabinets that used to be along that wall). Then we removed the bartop counter that was isolated next to the window, and turned that into a 1-foot depth row of cabinets with a small countertop for storage.

The reno also continued into the living room, which has a large stone fireplace. We continued with the hardwood floors, and removed the fireplace.

As you can see, the living room has wood ceilings. We spoke about turning these into exposed beam ceilings, but decided to hold off on that one for now. It turns out that new floors, a new kitchen, fewer walls, and all new appliances were the ‘perfect’ amount of projects, for now.

Here are the materials we used:
White Shaker Cabinets
Satin Nickle Pull Handles for the Cabinets
Quartz Countertops
Crackled Pebble 3 x 6 Subway Tiles for Backsplash (with white grout)
Walnut Hardwood Floor Stain
36″ Undermount Double Sink
Delta touch-On Pull Down Faucet
30″ Stainless Steel Island Range Hood
