Are you ready to see what the kitchen of the Brick Cottage looks like??? First I need to explain my little hiatus! I have a great excuse! We bought another house and started work on it before finishing this one. I also did a little design work for a friend that has her house on the market. Think Design to Sell. More on those 2 projects later. Unfortunately the blog is what got put on the back burner. I am now back to finishing the AFTERs of the Brick Cottage and the kitchen is up next. Sorry to keep you in suspense. It truly is a fabulous renovation so I won’t keep you waiting anymore.
You have seen the living and dining room and now we move into the kitchen and show you what happened in there. The new kitchen is part of the addition that was done on the back of the house. The old kitchen is basically the area to the left of where the dining room is now. It was tiny and not very functional. Do you remember what it looked like? Here are a few pics to refresh your memory.
It was quite the interesting set up and those stairs. I was just at a loss for words when I first saw the stairs. Thank goodness we wiped that area clean and started over with the kitchen in the addition. It takes up the back right area of the addition. Are you ready to see what it looks like now??Nice and open with lots of great features! I love the large island and the diamond details! Let’s look a little closer at some of the unique aspects.
Both sides of the island have these beautiful diamond details. Honed Carrara Marble tops the island and 2 lanterns hang down to finish it out. The cabinets are painted Dorian Gray SW7017 by Sherwin Williams.
Plenty of cabinets tuck around the outside corner and another casement window sits above the cabinets. Gotta love casement windows!
Up close view of the Honed Carrara Marble. Love the crisp look of marble.
Hope you like it! I am thrilled with how it turned out!
