The Design Process

I know many of you enjoy learning about my design process, what we changed and why. Tackling a kitchen remodel is no easy feat, and even though we’ve renovated kitchens many times, I still like to research and find helpful online resources before starting another transformation. Hopefully the information I share can be that online resource for you! So be sure to bookmark or pin this post for future reference!

We made several layout changes here in order to open up the space, create better traffic flow, and maximize storage. The most notable changes were 1) moving the garage doors into the dining room, 2) widening the doorway from the kitchen to the dining room, and 3) extending the kitchen cabinets all the way to the bay window, where the breakfast nook lives. If you’re curious about these layout changes – and the rationale behind them – I wrote a separate post all about redesigning the kitchen layout. It answers a lot of the frequently asked questions.

Completed Projects

Below are all of the projects we completed, or hired out:

  1. Demolition and removal of cabinetry, flooring, appliances, lighting, and pantry closet. The old appliances were functioning, so we were able  them on Marketplace to offset a little of the cost.
  2. Design new kitchen layout, order all components, and install new cabinetry. With supply issues rampant, we chose a ready-made cabinetry line from Home Depot. If you have no design experience, many retailers offer free design help, including big-box stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s.
  3. Install new engineered hardwood flooring. 
  4. Install new stainless steel appliances. To maximize space and traffic flow, we recessed the counter-depth refrigerator in between two floor-to-ceiling pantries. Not only did this create aesthetically pleasing symmetry, but it also created a designated space that housed all of the food. Because we moved the oven range, refrigerator, and ever-so-slightly scooted over the sink, we had to rework some of the electrical and plumbing.
  5. Install new lighting. We updated can lights and the breakfast nook pendant, and added electrical for three sconces.
  6. Build out and drywall the pony wall separating the kitchen and living room. 
  7. Install quartz countertops.
  8. Retrofit the under-the-cabinet vent hood into a cabinet and reroute the exhaust.
  9. Install new sink (PRECIS 27 from BLANCO) and new faucet (UMBRA faucet from BLANCO). I chose chrome for the faucet finish to add some visual interest and dimension to the kitchen design.
  10. Install brass cabinet hardware. I chose a mixture of knobs and pulls. In traditional spaces, the general rule is to use knobs on doors and pulls on drawers. For transitional and modern spaces, knobs and pulls can be used interchangeably.
  11. Tile the backsplash. We took the tile all the way to the ceiling to add height to the room and some textural interest to the design.
  12. Paint ceiling, walls, trim, doors, molding, etc. I chose my favorite white: Chantilly Lace from Benjamin Moore in different sheens. I always recommend using eggshell sheen for kitchen walls – especially if you have little ones. For the doors I chose my go-to black paint: Tricorn Black from Sherwin Williams.
