  • out with the old, in with the new, We took an outdated 1980's kitchen and brought it up to 2012.  We utilized and incorporated the full space of the kitchen verses the original layout.  We started by totally gutting the kitchen.  The location of the free standing microwave/stove/oven was moved to where the refrigerator previously stood, and a built in microwave/convection oven was installed.  An angled wall was constructed and allowed for the installation of a stovetop and island hood.  Upper cabinets blocking the view to the family room were removed.  The built in desk was removed.  Plumbing was installed to allow for the water line for the icemaker and a small sink to bring filtered water for coffeemaker.  Pantry cabinets and a coffee bar along with a full size refrigerator and full size freezer now make better use of that space.  LED lighting was put in under the cabinets and the can lights were converted to LED lighting as well making the kitchen more energy efficient.  Granite countertops and a complimentary tile backsplash finish off the modern look along with stainless steel appliances. All of this was work was done by the two of us!    Granite was the only thing we could not do ourselves!!, Kitchens

  • Big WOW for little "dough", I was getting ready to sell this house and knew the kitchen needed an update...the only room I hadn't touched in the 6 years I lived here.  Didn't want to invest much money because I was leaving.  I shopped around various stone "boneyards" and got a great deal on the granite counter tops.  I had professional painters spray my cabinets and paint the walls.  To complete the update,  I had a travertine subway tile back splash installed as well as under mount lights put in.  Total cost for make over $1500, Kitchens

  • Tuscan Style Heavenly Kitchen!!!!!, I tell my husband almost everyday how much I love my new kitchen - which he "built" for me!  I had the typical 60's or 70's kitchen which only had enough space for one cook and where you felt isolated from the rest of the home.  We demolished a cinder block wall that kept me divided and lonely from the dining/living area and created this fabulous Great Room.  Now, when we have gatherings, everyone always sits around the huge island in the center.  Couldn't be more thrilled!!!!!, Kitchens

  • Northwest Contemporary Kitchen Remodel, We purchased our outdated 1964 home 10 years ago and have been remodeling it slowly. We recently finished the kitchen/laundry addition. One of the main drawbacks of our home was the fact that there was no laundry room. The washer and dryer were previously located in a small closet off of the main  hallway. 

After much thought, we decided to include the washer/dryer in the new kitchen area. We'd seen this many times in European homes and decided it would be a good fit for us as well. So far, I've really enjoyed it. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it has been really handy! Also the high counter tops over the washer/dryer makes a great buffet area, easily accessible to the patio area (coming soon...)

By far, the most difficult item for me to pick out was the counter tops. I really love the look of cement but was nervous to use it because it's not as durable. After months of looking at different materials we finally decided on quartz counter tops by Caesarstone in Raven. Hard to tell in the photos, but it's a very soft black/deep gray. We went with stained concrete for my table though and I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, it's my favorite part of the kitchen!

I've spent countless hours both watching HGTV and browsing here on the website getting ideas for the remodel. RATE MY SPACE was the source of much inspiration and I've been looking forward to finally adding my own photos to it :)

Our goal was to create a warm, cozy kitchen area that all four of us could enjoy. Used warm colors to help counter the LONG, gray Oregon days. We're happy with the results!

Thanks for taking a look :)

  • Modern / Industrial Kitchen Remodel, We started by painting the walls.  After 3 attempts at trying to find the right color we finally settled on Benjamin Moore-Kingsport Gray. We moved on to painting the cabinets black and changing out the hardware with pulls we bought from Ebay Store "Hinges and More".  We retrofit the kitchen sink cabinet to fit a new farmhouse sink.  We added under cabinet and overhead lighting.  We hired a fabricator to install the Giallo Beach granite we picked out for the countertop and the Bedrosian Ice Crackle MGICG2 Mosaic Glass tile backsplash.  I ordered the island/table from the IKEA - Udden Console.  By removing the backsplash on the console I was able to repurpose, what is meant to be a cabinet base, for additional workspace and seating., Kitchens

  • Inexpensive Kitchen makeover, 11x13 Kitchen built in 1965. The countertops were updated with laminate (granite look) in 2005. This new re-do could've been completed within 1-2 weeks if I didn't work outside the home and cost less then $1000. The 2 biggest expenses were glass tiles at $13.88 a square, approx. $300, and the new hardware from Ikea, about $200. 3 Hanging pendants to cover canned lights totaled $75, paint about $80, mirrors $20 and sink with faucet $260. , Kitchens

  • Master bath update, Goodbye 1982!  Just finished updating our old, drab master bath. It's now small, but elegant!  No structural/space changes, but everything else is all new.  The toilet/shower room are separated from the vanity area by a pocket door. (pictures are a little out of order, couldn't figure out how to move them around.)  The vanity is custom made, the tiles are Turkish Walnut travertine, the glass mosaic tile accents are from American Olean., Bathrooms

  • Kitchen Makover Revolutionized, We moved into this 80's  home that needs a bit of updating. The old kitchen space was closed off and uninviting with old cabinets and dated appliances in a galley kitchen thats a little on the small side. After 3 weeks, we have a space thats more modern, functional can entertain in. By opening up our island/bar area, it makes it transition better to the family room and more buffet spaces for family functions.  Best of all, it was affordable since it is a DIY project. Decor will be added later....~Project was done under 10g with new appliances included., Kitchens

  • From French Country Kitsch to French Country Elegance, We decided to overhaul our severely outdated and equally tiny kitchen and ended up adding 300 sq ft to our house, improving our kitchen, dining room and outside space.  We lived in our house during the process.  The process affected most of our first floor and I found myself pregnant with a two year old, living with my husband in one room-doing dishes in the hall bathroom and grilling dinner on our driveway.  We extended our kitchen, added a pantry, breakfast area, bar area and reconfigured our dining room and the layout of our deck.  , Kitchens
