Before we moved into this house a year ago, we did a complete renovation of our kitchen. It took over 5 weeks, but it was completely worth it and I love how it turned out. I can now say that I have my dream kitchen.
This was what the kitchen looked like when we bought the house.
This is what it looks like now (minus the everyday mess)
We removed the L island and the original island to make room for a much larger island. We moved the sink from the original L island to window and replaced pretty much everything.
I was so happy that my contractor found a double farmhouse sink. I didn't think it existed. Two dishwashers was a must.
We added an appliance garage under the microwave to hide the toaster and other small appliances. I also made sure there was room for my "coffee bar."
When I saw these marble arabesques tiles, I knew I had to have it somewhere in the kitchen and it made sense to add it to the backsplash.
