If you’re new to my mom’s kitchen renovation series of posts, you might want to start here!
It’s always bittersweet when a project comes to an end, and this rings especially true on this particular job as it was such a joy to work alongside my mom to bring her kitchen to life. The silver lining for this one, however, is that I will get to selfishly enjoy this space myself for years to come, which isn’t often the case when a client project wraps up. Needless to say, after months of planning and weeks of blogging and instagramming my mom’s kitchen renovation, I’m beyond pumped to share the final reveal! If you’re just joining us on this “journey”, I highly recommend you check out all of the before photos as well as the before and after floor plans so that you can better orient yourself within the space. Though there are SO many more details in those two posts, I also wanted to share a few before photos here, just so we can really see what we were working with when we first began…
And alas, here we have it, the final reveal! After over 13 years in the industry it still never ceases to amaze me how drastically you can alter a space with some attention to detail and some thoughtful and intentional touches. If I’m being honest, I still can’t believe the transformation here myself and I’m beyond pleased with the results. At the risk of tooting my own horn, not only does it feel about eight hundred times bigger and significantly more luxurious, but it’s also light years ahead in terms of functionality, and literally exactly what I’ve been envisioning since my mom and I started discussing this project together years ago. This baby has been a long time coming, and I’m thrilled to share it all with you in all of its beautiful (functional!) glory.
I hope you love it as much as we’ve enjoyed working on it (and documenting it!). I still have so many posts churning around in my mind that I want to share about this project and the whole process, so I imagine this won’t be the last you’ll see of it. And because this isn’t a “typical” client project, I’m able to share absolutely every painstaking detail from the exact trim we used on our window casings, to every last one of our trade members (all of whom worked so damn hard and so thoughtfully the whole way through), to every last specification from appliance to backsplash, and everything in between. I think I’ve covered just about everything below, but if you have any additional questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
