The kitchen closet was the first to get the demo. It had really become wasted space filled with lots of junk!
The closet doors have come off the kitchen closet. Taking the closet and the built-in desk out will add a couple extra feet of floor space.
One board at a time.
Okay, closet is gone and the built-in desk is gone. More space!
I love having another "prep" area! I picked up this metal work bench for storage until I get the new cabinets put in. The long term plan is to build a row of cabinets and counter space with an added sink. This works for now.
On the opposite end of the kitchen we had an overhead cabinet that hung too low. It was the first thing visible when entering the kitchen and it prevented the ability to have a face to face conversation.
The overhead cabinet is gone!
Lights are going in where the overhead cabinet once was.
The lights are on!
The basic u-shape layout of the kitchen works pretty well. But, it sure does need a facelift!
I can't wait for my new sink and faucet! I've ordered a triple sink...thought it would be handy to have an extra sink for rinsing veggies and fruit!
Finally, the tile countertop is gone! I've waited over 10 years to get rid of it.
Thank you solid surface!!!! I won't have to scrub that ugly grout ever again!
