This was the kitchen before we moved in. Love the size. Love the high ceilings. Love the fireplace. The color...not so much.
Shortly after we moved in we painted the whole house a sort of khaki color. I'm not a fan of dark cabinets, but I was willing to live with their color.
But for four years, what I continued to struggle with was the work layout. The island was TOO big, and we removed it last year to re-purpose as cabinets in the garage apartment.
This is the second house where I've had a built-in desk in the kitchen, and I've hated them both as space wasters. I just pile things on them, and they always look awful and inefficient.
I like the luxury of the double oven, but do you want to know how often I needed to use them both at the same time? Maybe once...twice?
Now the desk and the ovens are gone.
I'll be showing more kitchen reno as we make progress.
