Thanks Pete! We did it so we would have a nice kitchen before we moved in. But now 3 years later we are ready to remodel it!

In this older photo you can see the space on the other wall for the stove.

Thanks Hughes - we haven't even started the after photos were just a facelift so the kitchen would be functional while we moved and got settled. Planning to keep counter tops and floors neutral and light - cabinets white and the tile as the pop of color (nothing too bold) maybe some patterns - check out these pics:

Thanks do much Natalie
We plan to remove the pantry so we may place the stove there and the fridge will be opposite to the sink with a side pantry attached - the door you see in the entry to our basement . Thanks for the inspiration pic- loved it! I'll try posting better angles of my kitchen later when I'm home.

What great progress! One thing to note about white cabinets, should you choose painted wood, is that they require daily maintenance and care. The finish can and will stain if you're not careful with things like spaghetti sauce/mustard. Water can also damage the finish if left to set, though I'm sure you may know this already from experience with your own.

If you move the range to the opposite wall, the sink under the window, and I'm assuming you're adding a dishwasher, you will end up with lots of small cabinets and a tight corner that will be too small to receive a lazy susan, and likely be too small to receive a blind with large enough opening, which means a void/dead corner. Be mindful of sacrificing storage in your remodel. Have you considered moving the window over? It might help open the kitchen space up enough to gain that corner back. See this pic for reference: http://lifeonvirginiastreet.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/spring-lane-kitchen1.jpg

Good luck on the remainder of your project. You've done a great job so far!

I would also have an electrician put a switch on the wall that would turn on under cabinet lights.

I think it might "match" the sofa too much. I'm thinking rugs more like Carole's last pic.

You have picked backsplash tiles that "match" your granite but they are too busy!!! Trust me. So, go with a plain cream colored subway or other tile that won't compete with the lovely granite.
