My Cottagey Ikea Kitchen


I just renovated my kitchen after gutting the original 1979 space and made it completely fit me. With all new Ikea cabinets and a few special features, it's a fun space to cook in and I absolutely love it. Here's the post with all the details and cost breakdown:

I especially love these two 36" base cabinets of all drawers. Granite is Kashmire White.

My island was handmade and I just repainted it gray to flow better with my kitchen.

The rustic shelves are reclaimed wood from Southern Accents in Cullman, AL. and are my fave thing in my kitchen.

A coffee station to the left of the sink is used every morning.  The sink is a Blanco granite sink in Metallic Gray and the cute green light fixture is from Ballard Designs.

One of the best things I did was to add this 12" open cabinet at the end of the run of base cabinets to house large platters and cutting board. Otherwise, it was just wasted space.

    Beautifully done. I love that you didn't go overboard on stainless, but there is enough that it blends in easily. Your island is stunning, a true statement piece, and I your idea for open storage of platters and cutting board is perfect. I have a cupboard for them in my kitchen, and I HATE all the space they take up.
