The Project House...The Kitchen

The kitchen was, by far, the dirtiest room in the entire Project House...

You walk through the living room and dining room into the kitchen.  The open 10-pane glass door leads out to the back porch which will soon have a brand new landry room and half bathroom!

Those air fresheners on the counter weren't doing a THING to help the smell in the house.  Nice try, previous owners.

The kitchen has linoleum floors which will be replaced with tile.  The house had also settled a few inches in the back so there was a pretty steep slope to the kitchen floor.  We have already had a structural engineering company come out and jack up the house with concrete pads and posts which has totally corrected the settling, for a surprisingly small amount of money.  It looks great!

Other than being dirty, the cabinets are in good condition.  A coat of white paint will freshen them right up!  You all know how much I love white kitchens! It's hard to tell from this angle, but the cabinet above the stove is set about 4 inches higher than the rest of the cabinets.  My plan is to move the rest of the cabinets up to give the new owners more space and to make good use of the tall ceilings!

The layout of the kitchen is a little odd right now, with the stove just hanging out in space with only one cabinet flanking it.  I have plans to remove the cabinet from the eat in dining area below and having it retrofitted to the spot next to the stove.  This will allow the kitchen to have a true L-shape of counter space.  I love black counters in a white kitchen, but I might go with something a little lighter in this kitchen.

There is a little bump out next to the fridge which is an old flue that was built around.  We will take those cabinets out and leave the area open.  I can imagine a sweet china cabinet or hutch in that little nook!  Open shelving would also look awesome.

Here are a few inspiration picture for you...
