Kitchen Goals

The kitchen is the most drastic and expensive part of our home remodel. Here is a high-level list of what we want to accomplish with the remodel:

  • Remove walls between kitchen and living room
  • Raise ceiling; add new lighting
  • Completely reconfigure the layout with new cabinets, sink and appliance layout
  • Add an island with pendant lighting

Starting point: 

 View facing outward from the kitchen to the dining room/den. What you can't really see from this pic is the condition of the cabinetry and appliances.  Appliances are old and the cabinets are in rough shape having been improperly painted several times.  Everything will be demo'd ... we will recycle as much as possible.

 View looking into the kitchen from the dining room/den area. We want an open-flow between the kitchen and the other living areas, so the groovy wetbar and breakfast bar will have to go.

 Up close view of the wetbar,  I've always wanted a wetbar but just not quite this style!
