Interested in following one of our kitchen remodels from start to finish? Good! You're in luck. We're going to be posting entries here as often as possible - shooting for weekly updates - following one of our kitchen remodels in Boulder.
Today is the first entry - and I'm going to use a few photos and drawings to illustrate the old house footprint and what we aim to accomplish with the kitchen remodel.
Here is a drawing of the existing house - pre - remodel.
As you can see, the kitchen currently occupies the smallest room on the main level of the house.
And while the kitchen is the smallest room on the main level, the room with the most space, the lower living room, sits mostly under-utilized.
What we aim to do is completely relocate the kitchen down to the lower living room. This will take advantage of the south facing windows for great sunlight, a much larger footprint, and it will also give us the opportunity to create the "great room". Below is the proposed new floorplan for the main level:
And here is a 3-D rendering of what the new kitchen space will look like once completed. A mix of zebra wood veneer and high gloss white cabinetry will be topped with a white quartz countertop and a really amazing walnut top on the island. Sub Zero and Wolf appliances are complimented by the back painted white back splash. We're even incorporating a new bar into the space to create a place where our homeowners can make a drink after a day at the office.
First phase of demolition was completed yesterday. Here's our first pic of the new kitchen space, after the built ins were removed.
Check back with our blog regularly to see the progress as we completely transform this home. We are aiming for weekly updates with photos and notes of our progress.
