Major Kitchen Renovation!

February 25, 2013 in Before & After
We ripped gutted our original 1950's kitchen (complete with cheap plywood cabinets). We also tore out a wall that separated the small kitchen and tiny dining room. We've been using the space for some months now, and I still can't believe it's mine!

Great decision to keep a bit of separation between the living room and the new kitchen area. Nice renovation !

Nice job! We are in the process of designing and renovating our kitchen too. I noticed in your before picture that you had wood floors and tile or brick in the kitchen. What type of flooring did you put in the new kitchen and how did you integrate it with the existing wood floors? Thanks for any input you can offer, and congratulations again on your new beautiful kitchen.

Thanks Pat! We put brick thins on the floor in the kitchen area. We had to tear out six layers of linoleum to get to the subfloor. Then we put down 1/8" cement board to make the finished height match the existing wood floors. You can see photos of the process here http://livefromrexburg.blogspot.com/2012/11/kitchen-reno-process.html

Looks like a ton of work, but you guys did an amazing job! The brick floor looks great. We're still looking at different options for the flooring, but hopefully, ours will come out just as nice. Thanks for getting back so quickly. Enjoy your lovely kitchen!

We purchased the brick locally and used a tile saw to cut the fronts off to create tiles. At the time, that was the only option. But I've seen actual tiles available now, which would have saved us so much backache and money! http://www.wayfair.com/Daltile-Union-Square-2-1-4-x-8-Brick-Field-Tile-in-Courtyard-Red-US03281P-DAI2186.html?tl_361677262=C233B1C9-A654-400B-9064-B4FB1AE16475

@saltcitybabe The only before pic is the birthday party one I included with these. I wish all the time that we had some better ones!
