Here's a look at our newly completed kitchen. How do you like it?
Our goal was to have the new kitchen feel like it belongs in a 1925 cottage — clean and simple with finishes that would feel fresh for years to come.
For me, I wanted to create a comfortable and well-thought-out space for John to enjoy, since my sweet husband does the majority of the cooking in our family. He never fails to make the most delicious meals. Now he has a proper kitchen in which to create them.
Top to bottom, I am very pleased with the new kitchen. It's especially lovely to have so much natural light, because the kitchen in our former home was located within the interior of the house making it perpetually dark. Plus, I adore the glass-fronted cabinets where I can display my collection of green and blue vintage pottery.
We have never put in a kitchen from scratch before and expected it to be daunting. However, our contractor and old friend, Jeff Meier of J.M.O. Builders, made the process easy. He guided us through the reno step by step, surrounding us with superb suppliers along the way.
Many thanks to Jeff, Billy his master carpenter, Frank the architect, Jim the kitchen cabinet designer, Shane the electrician, the plumbers Stanley and John, Noel the dry-waller, Alex the floor installer, James the tiler, and all of their talented helpers!
We are finally settled into the new space. All that is left to get are four counter stools. We are having a bit of trouble finding just the right ones. Any ideas?
As you may know, from start to finish our kitchen renovation took four months. The project also included the family and dining rooms that are now open to the kitchen. And let's not forget my studio! It's just about ready for its unveiling, so stay tuned...
