Our Kitchen “The Demo”

Okay, so where did I leave off? You saw the old kitchen.  And we were ready to demo.  We knew that the renovation was going to be long and stressful and like any old house we also knew that there would be some unexpected things that may cause issues.  I was optimistic about the timeline and work required.  So, we left on spring break knowing that the demolition would start and that we would come home to something very different. We had no idea.

Yes, I had a take a couple of really deep breaths. It was a lot to handle after being on planes all day with kids and it did get some getting used to.  We lost the ability to walk through there and our family room which left us going outside to go to the garage for our refrigerator.  Read it again.  Yes, we had to go outside to get to the garage where our fridge was located.  To say that our house was dusty was an understatement. That was the worst part.  The dust that is everywhere no matter how many times we have people in to clean.

On a happier note, let’s talk my vision.  For the kitchen, I wanted to stay true to the fact that our home is traditional in nature but I wanted to embrace the chance to update the space.  So, I tried to blend the traditional nature of our home and some new ideas.  Our main floor is full of neutrals, lots of gray and some taupe so we decided to stay consistent with it.   Are you ready to see some progress? It’s coming.
