I have something a little different for y’all today…today you get to makeover a kitchen, but you don’t have to do any of the work or spend any money. It’s the perfect kitchen remodel! A friend from church recently saw my kitchen makeover and asked if I would come take a look at her kitchen and give her idea for a makeover of her own. I of course said yes and then thought to myself “wouldn’t it be fun to open this up to my readers and get more input than I’ll ever know what to do with?”. And so, here we are.
This is kitchen is a little different from mine because it is a nice house, with a nice kitchen, and a very open floor plan. My kitchen was crappy and kinda separated, so I felt like I could let my creativity flow freely. There was no way I could have made my kitchen any worse… that’s great feeling. Seriously. Anyway, I went to her house and took a bunch of pictures…now I want y’all to tell me what you would do if it were your house.
I already have some ideas of that to do with it, but I’m not going to tell y’all what they are because I don’t want to influence you. Though there are a few things you should know before you start mentally gutting her kitchen…
The countertops are granite and they are staying, so is the backsplash. Nothing is getting rearranged. Besides that everything else is up for grabs…colors, lighting, seating, shelving. I can tell you that she wants to refinish/paint/do something with the cabinets for sure, and something interesting with the island. I’m including a ton of pictures as well as some of the rest of the downstairs so that you can get a feel for the room and the style. Okay that’s it, I can’t wait to hear your ideas!
I have a little bonus for you as well. She mentioned that she would like to do something interesting and unique in the entry, but isn’t sure what. The picture below is taken from just inside the front door…I think the curved wall with the “windows” would be a great statement wall. Now what that looks like….well that’s up to you!
So let’s hear those ideas, don’t hold out on me!
