Kitchen Before, During, & After Reveal

I am so excited to share with you guys my kitchen makeover today!  It has been quite a long few weeks, months actually if you count us starting by changing out the floors in January.  Here is a quick look at the before & after:

I started the remodel by tearing out the tile and replacing it with an engineered oak wood floor (not laminate), Heirloom from Provena.  (See sources below for more information.)

Here are some more before photos with all the tile still intact:

After the flooring was in, we put in new counter tops.  I chose White Ice Granite.  It has lots of white, gray, and black in it.  Here is a close-up of the stone:

After the counter tops were in, my cabinet guy came and in and got to work.  I designed a plan that used some of my old upper boxes, with new mixed in, staggered, and with large crown and a step below the crown.  I also wanted dark open shelves to contrast with the white. I kept all the base cabinets the same, but opted to switch out all the doors and drawers with a new style. 


I hired a company to come in and spray with a lacquered white, and kept the original oil bronze hardware I had before.  New pendant and sconce light fixtures, new kitchen faucet, and a beveled white subway tile back splash dressed up the space.

Here are all the afters! -
