re-reveal curvy natural cherry kitchen (tons of pics)
I can't believe my new kitchen just turned 1 year old. I did a reveal after it was done and I have posted individual pictures many times since then. I just decided to post on the finished kitchen blog but realized that some of my original pictures have been moved around in my photo-bucket account and consequently deleted in my original reveal. So I thought it was easiest to just start over.
I am sorry if I should not be doing this a second time and apologize to those of you are tired of seeing my kitchen. Also sorry that the pictures are so large-can't edit the size on my iPad.
My original kitchen was a 10'-8" x 11' space. My DH and I always felt trapped in its small u-shape. We hired an independent designer to address this concern and come up with a new floor plan. The only way we could increase the size of the kitchen a little was to shift and reduce the large entry way to the kitchen and dining area. This made the kitchen 12'-8" x 11'.
We hired a small Amish cabinet shop that we were familiar with to make and install our new cabinets. Since we already had some cherry accents in our hardwood floors we decided to go with natural cherry cabinets.
We used a general contractor to do the demo, construction, plumbing, electrical and the floor repair/refinishing. We hired our own granite fabricator. Our remodel was 7 weeks start to finish. And we were extremely lucky to have no issues at all in the remodel process.
Here is our original floor plan
