One of the biggest projects that we have completed in our house remodel so far has been the kitchen. You can see the original kitchen below:
I went with a white theme with lots of glass. I love how it brightens up the space and really adds a comfortable farmhouse feel.
We chose to go with a corian counter top. It has been so easy to care for and always looks beautiful.
The floor is a beautiful dark Pergo laminate. It is so durable and really looks like hardwood. We have had all kinds of adventures on it already and it shows no scratches or wear whatsoever.
No farmhouse kitchen is complete without a beautiful farmhouse sink. Ikea sells this beautiful version for an amazingly low price. It is such a nice large sink perfect for filling up with all those dirty dishes that four kiddos produce.
The glass front cabinets are beautiful and I love showing off my pretty glasses and favorite dishes.
I really wanted to come up with a way to hide the microwave and at the same time make it accessible for the kids. We solved the problem by placing the microwave in a nook in the peninsula. It is the perfect place for it!
We added a hood over the oven and also as a little bonus we put in a pot filler. It really is so convenient. We love that it reaches perfectly to fill up the coffee pot! The back splash is a beautiful tile we purchased at Costco.
One of the final things that we did was add crown molding to the top of the cabinets. This really gave the kitchen a custom feel that Ikea kitchens are sometimes missing.
Another custom finish we added to the kitchen were these trim pieces on both the bar and the refrigerator surround. My husband came up with an ingenious solution to matching the color of the cabinets. He purchased extra pieces of the toe kick boards and used those to create a beautiful decorative trim. He's so awesome!
