About This Space

We redid the granit countertop and backsplash a few years back but did not have the funds to replace the cabinets at the time. Now we really got tired of the old old laminate kitchen cabinets. We tried to keep the granite however it would have been more expensive to re cut the old one since I really wanted to change the peninsula in to a free standing Island. We can sit 5 people easily around 2 sides of the Island. My husband and I did all the work and I'm super pleased to have all the convenient drawers and lazy susan in the upper and lower corner cabinet. The only cabinet I have is under the sink.. We redid the floor with 24 inch Italian tiles but had a contractor do the work. The kitchen installation took us about 2 weeks, meaning weekends and evenings since we both work full time. We designed the Kitchen on the Ikea website and purchased it at the spring 20% off sale which made it very economical.
HGTV videos and diy tricks helped out with many minor issues we ran in to. I hope you like the space as much as I do.
