Teal kitchen challenge!
Think of it as a challenge!!��"There’s tile, there’s outdated appliances, there’s teal (and not in a good way), PINK walls…I don’t think things could get much worse if I tried.
The good news, things could not get much worse! In a way this can be a little bit liberating because I know I only have room for improvement.
What should I do about the tile?
Here are some photos that have been my inspiration..
As you can see from the photos below, the kitchen is a really small space (and an old person used to live there). I want to think of some ways that I can maximize the flow but I am also open to the idea of opening up the wall a little bit as you can see flow into the living room is awkward and narrow. Still have to see if this can be done as far as the house support structure.
The living room layout is long and seems awkward to me
I know this space is nothing great right now but this house fit all of our other requirements which were more important such as a big yard and being close to both our work locations (not an easy task) plus this house was also close to my mom’s who is dying
I’m hoping I can make a few quick changes to this kitchen until other more pressing rooms are finished. I just think I will lose my mind with the current set up and I want something fairly quick and easy. I like open shelving and reclaimed woods. I think I will follow CelticMoon’s approach to the cabinet stain. http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/kitchbath/msg0112173522421.html
What do you think about the flow into the living room & a way to maybe fix how narrow the living room is??
I look forward to your feedback,
Any and all suggestions are appreciated
