  • Floor to Ceiling Transformation, Originally, a G-shaped kitchen that basically divided my kitchen in half & only used 1/2 the space. I have totally gutted it, designed a new layout that would utilize the entire space. Created a lot more storage, along with more convenient functions, like pull out drawers, single basin sink & taller faucet. New floor, more lighting that I installed myself. I had a very small budget but I feel I got a "Bang For Your Bucks". And even though I've designed every inch of it and had a pretty good idea of how everything would look, the finished project actually turned out much more beautiful than I ever imagined. This has been a very rewarding experience.

  • Northwest Contemporary Kitchen Remodel, We purchased our outdated 1964 home 10 years ago and have been remodeling it slowly. We recently finished the kitchen/laundry addition. One of the main drawbacks of our home was the fact that there was no laundry room. The washer and dryer were previously located in a small closet off of the main  hallway. 

After much thought, we decided to include the washer/dryer in the new kitchen area. We'd seen this many times in European homes and decided it would be a good fit for us as well. So far, I've really enjoyed it. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it has been really handy! Also the high counter tops over the washer/dryer makes a great buffet area, easily accessible to the patio area (coming soon...)

By far, the most difficult item for me to pick out was the counter tops. I really love the look of cement but was nervous to use it because it's not as durable. After months of looking at different materials we finally decided on quartz counter tops by Caesarstone in Raven. Hard to tell in the photos, but it's a very soft black/deep gray. We went with stained concrete for my table though and I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, it's my favorite part of the kitchen!

I've spent countless hours both watching HGTV and browsing here on the website getting ideas for the remodel. RATE MY SPACE was the source of much inspiration and I've been looking forward to finally adding my own photos to it :)

Our goal was to create a warm, cozy kitchen area that all four of us could enjoy. Used warm colors to help counter the LONG, gray Oregon days. We're happy with the results!

Thanks for taking a look :)

  • Cottage kitchen makeover on a budget...goodbye 1970s melamine, hello gorgeous!, This is a 1930s cottage vacation rental we own in Sandpoint Idaho. Over the last 5 years we have worked to get the 70's out and bring real cottage style in. Since we are on a tight budget, everything we do has to be DIY or negotiated to the lowest possible price; classic champagne taste on a beer budget! 
We live in Northern California and this house is in Northern Idaho. We scheduled a 2 week vacation planned the kitchen makeover and loaded our Honda Pilot to the brim with tools. We drove the 16 hour drive and started what we thought was going to be a 1 week project with one week leftover to enjoy the remodel, (and our vacation) of course the project ended up taking the full 2 weeks of 16 hour days. 
We wanted the kitchen cabinets to have an authentic look like they have been painted over again and again, so even if we could afford it, new cabinets would have ruined the cottage feel. 
The existing cabinets were melamine with oak trim on top and bottom. For the cabinets we added molding around the outside and bead board on the inside and painted the white. At the last minute, I said to DH, "Wouldn't it be nice to have that old fashion glass on one of the upper cabinets?" Dear Husband loves to please so he figured out how to do it so if the glass breaks we could easily replace it. Adding glass added an extra day and a half to the project but it was so worth it!   
Because this is a vacation rental we wanted flooring that was durable, fun, and something that people would not likely have in their own homes. I think we found that in the black and white checkerboard VCT. This is typically found in commercial uses, grocery stores etc. It was very economical and I like that it can be shined up. (I like shinny surfaces for kitchens, it gives them a clean feel.) We found an installer on Craigslist. 
The counter is local granite mined out of Dover Bay about 2 miles from the house. We choose a white subway tile (classic cottage) but added a little fun with the black tiles here and there.

  • My eclectic kitchen, This kitchen is in an 18th century log house that I rebuilt on my property.  It was done on a tight budget and has many reused items in it.  I took box store unfinished cabinets and added moldings, beadboard and cool hardware.  The countertops are black granite tiles with stainless steel edging. The backsplash is beadboard.  Being the cook that I am, I wanted a chef's kitchen but still fitting with the age of the house.  I think it has a good mix of old and new.  I spent around $2000.00 to do this project and worked on it for about 5 weeks. , Kitchens Design

  • 1940's Cottage Kitchen Make-Over, This 1940's kitchen make-over took the small original galley kitchen and dining room and opened up the two rooms as one large functional eat-in kitchen.  With custom made cabinets and a distressed island, the new kitchen is quaint, relaxed, and perfect for entertaining.  White subway tiles, a farm house sink, window seat, book shelves, and an old barn door as focal points, this new kitchen is a breath of fresh air. , Kitchens Design

  • Vintage Cottage kitchen, This kitchen used to be dark cherry cabinets UGH!  It was so dreary in here and it made me depressed to cook in it.  There is no window so that didn't help either.  I took off the upper doors to paint and ended up loving it. I like to see my stuff....LOL.     , Kitchens Design

  • HGTV RMS Inspiration Room - my new kitchen photos, My kitchen is one of the inspiration rooms on episode #208 of the Rate My Space Show. Thank you Angelo, Jillian and HGTV for choosing my kitchen as an inspiration room. It was quite an honor and a lot of fun being on the show. I renovated my kitchen a couple of years ago. We went from an outdated 1980's kitchen to this. The original kitchen had pickled oak cabinets with white formica countertops. I wish I had taken a "before" picture to show you. The change is remarkable., Kitchens Design

  • My "New-Old" Kitchen, My modest-sized kitchen is double the size it used to be. We took 4 teeny spaces and turned them into 1 bigger area. We used every inch we could. I  love our pop-up ceiling over the island that houses a sun tube and 2 pendants. The subway tile backspash is from 2"x4" tiles. Counters are "coast green" granite - a fantastic neutral yet different than your typical biege or black. Not a fan of stainless appliances so went with the Heartland 36" range., Kitchens Design
