It took me awhile to get these up although the kitchen has been done for a few weeks now. I was waiting for a few finishing touches but I'm WAY too excited to share the results so although it's not staged "perfectly" here is my NEW KITCHEN!!! I've waited 10 years for this kitchen. Please pardon the multiple comments for photos - I can't access photo bucket form work and it's the only way to share multiple photos:

Happy to share details - just ask!

But, to appreciate the after - first you have to see the before... (this was taken right before demo day after we let the kids go crazy with markers on everything)

One final shot.

THE END!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Stunning! I'd likely never leave that room!

Your appliances- all Kitchen Aid? I think you've got exactly what I'm looking at getting. Are you happy with them so far?

You've done a fantastic job- congrats and enjoy!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Lovely! I applaud you for getting this done in 3 weeks. I especially love the sink light. Can you post the details on this light?


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Norcal Cat, Yes, appliances are all KitchenAid and I am loving them all! The fridge has a filtered water spout that is inside that my kids love having and the double oven feature is amazing. I love just using the upper oven for weeknight meals - heats up super fast and has a warming feature without needing a separate warming drawer to take up space. Dishwasher is silent. I mean, if it weren't for the little light indicator, it wouldn't even know it's running.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Oh this looks fantastic! We're planning something very similar so it's so fun to see how it could look all together- the little window seat is so perfect- wish I could fit one in!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

GWlolo: Yes, the sink light is even more stunning in real life. My electrician was wowed by it too. It's actually a pendant light that we had hung as a semi-flush mount by just not using the stems. It's made by Landmark lighting, and it is their Chadwick pendant in polished nickel with white glass shade.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Stunning!!! I would love more information on your pantry. How wide? Does it have pullout shelving?

Also, is your sink a single bowl? How wide and deep?

Many years of joy in your kitchen.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

the sight lines are wonderful-it's challenging when the space is longish and narrow....a HUGE improvement..enjoy!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Kitchen came out great! Can I ask what the paint color is?


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

WOW - what a difference. It's beautiful. I really like the granite and the window seat area is so nicely designed. Congratulations.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Absolutely beautiful! You must be thrilled - what a fabulous change.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Nice job!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Looks awesome! You guys did an amazing job. What kind of faucet did you use?


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Beautiful job!!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Thanks, all! It really was SO MUCH fun to design! I especially loved curling up after a long day with my laptop, with all you wonderful people full of inspiration and ideas!

Paint color is Benjamin Moore Solitude - it's a beautiful greyish blue.
Pantry is 36 inches wide, with 4 deluxe roll-outs and two huge upper shelves. The real secret of the pantry is that we had a 3-inch wide support column that could NOT be removed based on taking two load baring walls down - so my contractor built it into the side of the pantry. You would NEVER know it's there and it's amazing how lucky we got that the placement of it just happened to be where the pantry was going.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Everything looks great! Congratulations on (almost) reaching the finishing line. I especially love the hutches on the end that frame the window seat. The space seems so much more open -- i am certain your family is super pleased.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Congrats Rebeccamom123! Everything turned out beautifully! Hope you stick around the forum to help out those that are waaaay further behind in their projects (ahem).

:o)


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow, what a beautiful kitchen! What are your specific KA appliance models? I have a KA side-by-side and love it. I would definitely consider KA for stove and DW, and like their pricing.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Sorry - forgot to answer a few other questions:

Sink is a Franke stainless under mount single bowl 28" wide, 9" deep Grande. I wanted the largest sink I could get that would fit into a 30" sink base cabinet and this was it. I really wanted an apron but my DH put his foot down on that one. I'm really glad we went with this one - i LOVE it!

Faucet is Danze Opulence single handle in polished chrome - with matching side spray and soap pump. I think it gives the room a little traditional/french country flair. I wanted to stay away from anything that would read too modern for my taste.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Very, very nice. Congrats.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Lovely! Must be nice to have finally have the dishwasher next to the sink. Can I ask what the hardware is, and is it chrome?


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Hi Homeblessings: Yes! it is SUCH a delight to load the dishwasher now! It's really amazing how much a well designed kitchen can totally change the functionality. We are loving the new space.

The hardware is all Martha Stuart Living - it's a special order line from HomeDepot. It's a nice weight and durable construction.

 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Rebecca--it looks beautiful! I guess I was a little slow, so no reno buddy. We just had everything torn out, so mine has actually started (finally).

Love all your choices and the lighting looks wonderful--I know you had a hard time deciding on everything. I know you are thrilled because everything turned out so wonderfully!! Congratulations!

What are your backsplash tiles called--where did you get them. I really like them!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

A few more pics for fun...


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Soon to be my FAVORITE Sunday morning spot...just begging for pillows! (waiting on custom pillow order)


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

What a gem!!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Hi Cathy!!

Oh the fun you have ahead. I hope yours goes as quickly and painlessly as ours did! Kids lived on pizza, spaghettios and frozen pancakes for a few weeks but it was well worth it!

The funny thing about the lighting is that after all that agonizing, I wound up getting those little pendants from Home Depot - after all that!! The drum shade with black stem that I had decided on arrived flimsy and damaged - then I ordered two mini pendants from lumens that arrived looking way bigger than I expected and so I happened to be in home depot and came across the ones I have. The size was perfect and they are simple and timeless.My favorite is the light over the sink - it's actually a pendant that I had my electrician hang as a flush mount and I think it looks great in that spot. I have SO much light in the kitchen now - I love it!

I can't wait to follow along and see your progress in the coming weeks!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Cathy - forgot to answer your question about the backsplash. The tile is made by Adex and it's from their Studio collection - color is "Graystone" and it's hand molded 2.8X5.8 ceramic. It has a beautiful glossy finish that wipes clean really easily. I originally thought I'd go with white subway but wanted to pull the gray/mocha tones from the granite to break up all the white and this worked perfectly without making it too busy. I looked at a tumbled marble too but the gray swirls competed too much with the movement in my granite.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Oh - and I ordered the tiles from TilesDirect.net - They carried them at my local tile showrooms but they all told me 7-14 days for shipment. I found the same ones on tilesdirect.net and they arrived in two days! Problem was, many were cracked. They were absolutely great about it and sent another box overnight to us at no cost. I had actually over-ordered anyhow so it was fine and my contractors used the broken tiles for the ones that needed cuts anyhow.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Rebecca, thanks for the KA info. Have you tried magnets on your fridge...they stick to mine. I like the SS finish and find it not that difficult to keep the smudges away.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Linelle, - yes funny you mention that - i was shocked to see that magnets DO stick to mine. I'm not sure that is the case with many other brands of stainless. I probably won't use magnets for fear of scratching the stainless surface but it's a great feature to have! Yes - fingerprints and smudges wipe really easily. Non like my mom's Elctrolux stainless. I have three little kids so that's a blessing!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

What an amazing transformation! Your new kitchen is so beautiful, light-filled, and inviting. Love the window seat especially, and the cases on either side of it!

How in the world did you get all that done in 3 weeks? I'm serious, did you work both day and night? You give me hope that I could do a reno in a survivalble time-frame.

Hope you and your family have wonderful years together in that great room!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

It looks great.

I love the window seat flanked by cabinets. Nice!

Enjoy your new kitchen!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

That is beautiful granite! And the floors are nice, too!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Rebecca, according to my appliance guy, the constituents of stainless can vary. I've had magnets on my fridge for a year and no scratches. I do keep them on the upper section so my cats don't try to drag them around. When I remove them, it looks like an etch or oil spot, but they disappear when I clean the surface. I just prefer a personal photo or some artwork on my fridge.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow- that must be a new record! Congratulations - It looks spectacular - love your counter top!

Maybe I missed it - are you planning to put a seat on your bench - love ours!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

This is one of those rare times that you can probably increase the value of the house more than what you actually spent. And nothing looks "rushed" about it given that you finished in three weeks.
Casey


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow, this is so fantastic. I've watched all your posts and I can't believe you're already done. It must be wonderful feeling. It all looks beautiful - congratulations!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow! Totally amazing that you pulled that off in such a short time. Congrats on your quick decision making and organization. What a feat! It is beautiful.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Gorgeous! You did an excellent job with finishes. The backsplash tile is the perfect choice. I am envious of the window seat. I did not think of adding one in our build and it is a regret. Yours and LittleFishies are spectacular!

Enjoy the new kitchen with your family.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Beautifully done. I can see why your built in bench will be a favorite Sunday morning spot. I am looking forward to pictures of your cushion.

What color are your cabinets, as I see they are different from the wall color? I love the color of your cabinets.

Many joyful years in your new kitchen!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

I think your kitchen looks really lovely! Great job.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Thanks! Cabinets are painted Dove White on maple. Walls are Solitude, Benjamin Moore. Yes, the seat cusion and pillows are going to be the focal point, for sure! I'll be sure to post pictures when it's complete!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

It looks absolutely wonderful! Congratulations! You've done a great job. Enjoy!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

gorgeous!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Such a pretty kitchen! Love the granite/backsplash. Can't wait to see the bench all dressed up.
How did you get it finished in just three weeks?!?!?!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Great job! So beautiful and refined! Love the soon-to-be-cozy bench! Great to hear it's possible to get such a project done in3 weeks! Enjoy!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

you have a lovely kitchen and so impressive that you did it all only in 3 weeks! congrats!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

3 weeks?? Incredible! And beautiful!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

That's an amazing transformation! Very elegant. Nicely done and it looks like you have a lot of great prep space to the left of your sink, too. Just beautiful... enjoy!

Say, how wide is that pot and pan drawer that you showed in the last pic? Love a peek in your pantry and other drawers, esp if you have some organizing stuff, too. If you decide to show drawers, would you be so kind as to mention the widths and depths, too? Thanks!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Rebeccamom123, So many of us are just agog at your three week project, I wonder if you can share some guidance and advice how you did that so well. Please!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Hello all - stay tuned for a week-by-week detail of how this was all accomplished. I'll be back at you with more pics in inside the pantry and drawers with dimensions also.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Okay - here is how it was accomplished in three weeks:

In December I started meeting with kitchen designers. I met with three and gave them each the same criteria. I wanted a white kitchen. I wanted a penninusla to seat all three kids because I knew my space was too narrow for an island, I wanted a window seat and I wanted my appliances to make the "triangle" that every good kitchen should have. All the designs were relatively similar. I reserached cabinets until I was sick from cabinet info overload. I looked into RTAs, locally made custom and the big box stores. I also knew I wanted to use a GC for the install. We contracted with our GC on 2/11. Based on the customization options and price point I decided on Home Depot's KraftMaid in Dove with with the Thornton Door. Cabinet order was placed the same week we signed the GCs contract.

GC started demo on 2/25 - in the first week, they demoed the entire kitchen, built a temporary support wall to take down the two main load bearing walls and moved all plumbing pipes (including our main stack and we are septic so that was a BIG deal). Week two was focused on getting all the electrical set up, getting the town inspectors in to approve the new structure (must be approved prior to closing walls) and dry wall ing it back up and new floors were laid. Week thee was plaster, paint, cabinet install, granite (granite install took under an hour!) lighting cans installed, appliances intalled and floors received 2 final coats of poly. The only thing that spilled into week 4 was teh backplash and that was only because the original delivery damaged the tiles.

The secret was having everything well in advnace so the contractors were never waiting on us for anything. Our appliances were delivered early and stored in the garage until intall, all my cabinet hardware and lighting I ordered online and had in the basement ready to go. Paint colors had all been chosen, etc.

Our GC worked with a "helper" and they both showed up and started work by 7 AM every morning. Nothing took more than a day - plastering took a day - floors took a day, They never skipped a day. Not a minute was wasted. While they waited for the plasterer they were working in the basement installing lolly columns for added support. While they waited for the floors to be installed and dry they were re-siding the exterior of the house where we moved a door and took out a bay window.

My advice is to not let a minute go to waste. You pay for their time and if the project drags on so will your budget.

The funniest part is - we just got an estimate back from the third GC we interviewed - and the proeject was already done!!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Great Job! I feel like I JUST saw you posting the sketches of your layout on here! Oh how far far behind I am:(

Your granite is Beautiful! The whole space looks amazing, you did an awesome job!
Cant wait to see inside the pantry!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Congratulations on your beautiful new kitchen!!

We have the same range. We finished our kitchen last year and I've been cooking on it for a year and LOVE IT! I love having gas top and electric bottom and I love having the smaller oven on top. I hope you'll love yours as much as we love ours!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

It's gorgeous. I love all the new space and how well it all flows. I love the fixture over the sink too. Did you say where you got it? I missed it if you did. You are super organized. I bet the GC and subs tell everyone how easy you made it for them.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Awesome! Question: What's the width of the aisle between the bench and peninsula? Looks like there's plenty of room to have someone on the bench seat and on a bar stool at the same time.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Okay - bear with me while I add lots new comments with each picture - but I've gotten so many great quesitons.

First - here is the pantry. IT's got 4 really deep,delux rollouts on bottom and two large, stationary shelves up top,. Measurements are 36 inches wide, 25 inches deep and 84 inches tall.

The real magic is that we have a 3 inch support column that was biult in to the left hand side - you will see where the contractor built it in and boxed it in so it would be out of sight.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

This is the lower corner cabinet that instead of a lazy susan we have a pull out shelf that swings open and behind it is two roll-outs...


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

And here are the drawers behind that...


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Spice rack that Iwill use for my cooking sprays, oils, spices, etc. It's 9 inches wide.

 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Your kitchen turned out awesome! And thank you for the details on how you got it done so quickly. I'm wanting to do mine within a quick timeframe, but wasn't sure it was realistic. Since I've been spending over a year already just figuring out what the heck I want - which will tell me how much moolah I need - I'm hopeful that I could get it done quickly, too!

Thanks for sharing, and enjoy that great space!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Thanks for the peek inside with sizes... I missed if you said how wide the pot/pan drawer was, though? I like that silverware drawer insert... that makes sense.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Absolutely lovely! It looks amazing. I especially love your beautiful counters. Congrats on your gorgeous new kitchen.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow, those are amazing results plus incredible on time.

Love the granite, BS, and the sink light.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Thank you for taking the time to type out that helpful explanation of how it all happened in only three weeks. It sounds so very well organized, getting cab install and granite in the same week! Bravo, it is all beautiful and looks so funtional. I'll be checking back on the window cushions, they're going to be sweet icing on this great kitchen.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Deedles - sorry if I forgot that pot and pan drawer for you. It's 30 inches wide, 12 inches deep and 20 inches long (back to front). It's PLENTY big to hold my large soup/stew pot and all my every pots and pans. The drawer above it is identical inside and holds all my tupperware.

Also, for Mizinformation's question about space between window seat and penninsula - it's 58 inches - plenty of room to pull chairs out or have people seated at the penninsula and window seating at the same time.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow, beautiful!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wonderful job. I, too, am gobsmacked by the 3-wk timeline, especially now that I know that you had to move load-bearing walls, plumbing, and windows. Wow, just wow.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

wonderful! Can I ask what your costs for the cabinets were?


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Wow, it took 4 weeks for my cabinets to arrive from the factory!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

You have a gem of a GC. To be able to do everything in that timeframe is pretty amazing. I'm hoping to have a "fairly" quick renovation. My GC wanted everything in hand before starting, so that definitely will help.

Only thing left to figure out is my under cabinet lighting.

Congrats again on a beautiful transformation!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Just lovely! The light fixture is gorgeous, and I love the BS with your pretty granite. Great job. Congratulations!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Thanks, all!

As for the question by scrappy 25 - my cabinet spend was 12K. I went with KraftMaid via Home Depot, in their Thornton shaker door style in painted Dove White. I upgraded all roll-outs to deluxe, to accommodate more weight and a higher back. Everything is soft close, which was included in the cost. I ordered during a promotion that they were running where the more you spend the more you save, so we received like 5K in deductions based on what we spent.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

What is the depth of your counter seating area. I'm trying to decide if I can have seating with a smaller than 12" depth on countertop edge. I don't have enough room for that, but I was thinking that if I did 6" I could still have decent seating area.

I'm contemplating getting a pub-height kitchen table, which would allow me to use the same chairs to pull up to the peninsula if we wanted. We wouldn't keep the chairs there all the time (just not enough room) but I would like the option to sit/eat at the counter for breakfast or visiting while someone is working in the kitchen.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

THREE WEEKS is all it took for that gorgeous transformation? I'm impressed! Love the granite and backsplash choices. Looks like a great use of space and I really like your sink light!!

Well done!!!


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Hi Cathy,

Do you mean the depth of thecounter overhang? It's a tad over 12 inches overhang on the granite of the peninsula. Some people even do 15 inches but 12 offered us plenty of knee room even for my 6'2 DH. I think 6 inches is too shallow to sit comfortably and eat unless you swing your legs to the side - otherwise, your knees will be bumping into the back of the counter. Also, my peninsula is counter height. Most pub tables are bar height which is several inches higher. Using the stools interchangeably won't work, sorry to say - unless you do a bump-up from your counter which I chose not to do. I was afraid the chairs would be too high and unsafe for my kiddos.


 o
RE: 3 Weeks demo to DONE: Reveal!!!

Ahh, good point on the pub height table. I saw one in someone's house and it was counter height. I would probably have it made, so I can specify height.
