New Finished Kitchen Photos

I’m so thrilled to tell you that the kitchen remodel is finished.  I am so happy with how every single thing turned out!  It is officially my favorite room that I’ve ever decorated or designed.  If you want to look back at the details of the remodel, here’s the link… Demolition and Remodel.

Here’s a before photo:

See, why I’m so excited over the transformation?


This is the old section of the kitchen.  I painted these cabinets and then had the new pantry cabinets built to match.  They also built that cabinet over and around the refrigerator.  Didn’t they do an amazing job making it match the older cabinets?  Here’s the post about painting those cabinets with complete tutorial directions… Painting the Kitchen Cabinets


We ran a gas line under the concrete foundation (quite an undertaking).  By “we”, of course you know I had nothing to do with that but write a check, right?  I am in love with the new gas range.  It has a downdraft that lifts out of the island.  I should have photographed that too.  Oops.  It’s super cool!



This is the new wall that was installed.  The brick travertine tile matches the other kitchen wall (the original kitchen area).  Again, they did a perfect job matching it!  I went with a different cabinet color here to match the island and I used the granite that matched the original kitchen on the other side.  The granite on the island is “leathered”. It has a very matte finish. LOVE!


Thanks to my BFF (Lilya) for coming over and helping me strategically place all my white dishes in the glass cabinets.  That was a fun, late, late night!


These are the new pantry cabinets.  They match the old style cabinets.  Love the space!


We changed out all the doors to 5-Panel Equal doors. I wanted to add a little old style to the modern mix.


Yep, that’s a tv in the top right corner.  It’s so fun to watch cooking shows while I cook!  From this angle, you can see the original kitchen cabinets along with the new pantry and how well they match.


I got the barstools at Wayfair.  LOVE!  As you can barely see in this photo, the eat in area is open to the kitchen too.


And that’s it, folks.  Thanks for letting me share my latest project!

    Nicole! I am so jealous! It’s now 7 years ago since I designed my “new” kitchen and I remember that feeling …. it’s like a new love! Your renovations are beautiful and so creative! I love the mix of granite, the different cabinets, the black panel doors … I love the nostalgia that you brought into a new and updated space. Gorgeous! Great job!

      We used #6258 “Tricorn Black” from Sherwin Williams, in semi-gloss. It’s crazy how many shades of black are available!
