Your kitchen post has me thinking about my old kitchen in Nashville. Back in November, our neighbor who does kitchens helped us order cabinets from Ikea and he was going to put them together for us. It was really Formica as I found out when the installers came and removed it. And there was another surprise.
We wanted to see if someone else would bid it lower than the general contractor. No big deal, and I was really surprised not to find any damage under the sink. While our kitchen will have to last a while, the one spare, needs doing space our condo has is a pantry corner.
At the end of week 1 the kitchen looks much the same as it did after the demolition. We discussed a few different design options and decided that keeping it simple was the best idea. I tried to think of ways to have a proper triangle working space but in the end it was impossible.
The cabinets were your basic orangey oak, laminate counters, florescent lights, linoleum flooring, an some really bad tile back splash. And thanks so much for sharing all of this with us. But my wife found a copper table top online for about $500 with delivery.
Many thanks to the homeowner for allowing the publication of the photos and the cost. We did find a pantry cabinet that was the same style door, as the rest of the cabinets, at Lowe’s. We bought it sight unseen, but as soon as it was delivered and we rested it on our existing island, we loved it. It’s a bold look, but rustic and warm.
