Kitchen reveal, a bit belated
Okay, so I think, I am pretty sure, I never did my kitchen reveal. At least I don't think I did? And it has been done for 3 years. I was looking thru photobucket for other photos and decided, hey, better late than never.
Our kitchen was quite unusual to start with. Very long and narrow. Everything behind panelled walls that you had to open and slide back to get to counters, cabs, etc. If memory serves, a 17' long island. Some things I did like, such as original windows looking into the dining room. Thw biggest issue was flow. In the bottom right is a doorknob to a half bath! The finishes would not have been my choice, but they were nice.
We gutted it and made it very "porous". There is an opening to the hall, an opening to the breakfast room, doors and a step down to the DR, and openings on either side of the stove wall to the family room. The flow is much better.
Here are a few photos. Floorplan is at the end.
