Finally, as promised, a tour of my remodeled kitchen. When we moved into our house I knew I was going to redo it. Originally I wanted to paint the cabinets but they were not wood so that was not a good option. (I tried on one cabinet and it was a disaster). We were already planning on replacing the countertops, island, dishwasher, and cooktop so it seemed like gutting everything was our best bet. We decided to install white stock cabinets with shaker style doors. However, to give them a custom look we had them stacked. The variation in height of the cabinets definitely gave them a more “custom” feel. We also had black granite countertops installed.
I had a whole file of kitchen pictures that I had saved over the years and I combined elements from many different sources to come up with the overall design. I knew I wanted a black island with a butcher block top. I decided to include a bookcase for storage.
