Cherry Craftsman-esque Kitchen, 90% done--pic heavy!

13 years ago

At long last, I submit to the TKO folks of this forum my 90% finished kitchen. Last March, we started a whole house renovation, including a 10 foot addition onto the back of the house that gave us, among many other things, a new kitchen. We are honing in on completion of the project, and still need a backsplash and a few touch ups with the paint brush--but otherwise, the kitchen is done. I was shooting for a Craftsman-esque style, (Pllog called it a "homage to Craftsman"), comfortable and welcoming, with room enough for me to be cooking dinner, my daughter to be making dessert, and my son to be working on his famous Chex Mix while someone unloads the dishwasher and sneaks in for snacks. I think we've achieved that. Coming from the old kitchen, I feel very much like I've won the lottery. I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who chimed in with layout help, suggestions, and patience while I whined about hardware a few months ago. You're all wonderful and I appreciated every word of advice, plus that occasional kick in the pants (ahem, Rhome) that you all gave me during this process. Details are at the end.

The former kitchen. There was a total of 5x5 feet of open floor space in the middle. When the portable dishwasher was stationed at the sink to be run, or if the refrigerator door was open, the entire kitchen was inaccessible.

Completely demo'd kitchen. The plywood rectangle was the door to the living room. That wall remains, but the wall adjacent was removed, making the living room much larger.
