Kitchen Remodel


We had the kitchen from the 40s with basically no updating in our circa 1940 ranch home. By taking out a wall and concentrating on light, bright finishes, we created a workable space and made the most of the space we have. I live in my kitchen and I'm so happy with the outcome!
How it looked before.  Cute and completely non-functional.

Stove in orig. kitchen was on this side.  I flipped the cooking to the other side, between the windows.

The finished kitchen. The wall removal required the builder to put in a header.  I wanted a rustic look and he built a great looking wooden beam.

Looking toward the den, you can see the neat weathered looking beam.  There are two steps down to the den.
