Before & After: Kitchen & Patio Remodel

Last year, we worked on a pretty large kitchen and patio remodel.
The planning process started around six months beforehand.

Before/Existing Floor Plan

Proposed New Layout

The plan: to remove the wall that separates the living room and kitchen.
Relocate all of the appliances. Change the "hallway" into a pantry, change the entrance into the game room, change the dining window into a sliding patio door, which opens up onto the new slab and covered patio.

The Plan: To remove the weird wall on the right, and install new door and sidelight.

What a difference, right!!??

We added a sliding reed-ed glass door for the pantry.
dark vinyl plank flooring

Butcher block countertop on the island.
Suspended vent hood.

We spent a great deal of time, laying out the cabinet design.
They have a trash pull out, tray pull outs, deep drawers, and two of these awesome pull outs that you see in the picture above.

The microwave is now located in the island, this new height- makes it easier for their children to use.

Backsplash glass

We wrapped the window with the glass tile.
And installed a quartz window sill, to match the countertops.

New undermount blanco kitchen sink.

A fun new dining light fixture.

Changing the front door, and removing that weird wall- made this area so much brighter!

This space is now ready for entertaining!
You can't even tell where the old back door use to be!

In Texas, it is a MUST to have a fan on your patio!

This was a great project, the open living room and kitchen was just what these clients were looking for. I am so pleased with how this remodel came out.

Here is a list of materials used:

Paint Colors (Sherwin-Williams)
Walls: Repose Gray #7015
Ceiling: Extra White #7006
Main Cabinets: Dove Trail #7018
Island Cabinet: Extra White #7006

Butcher Block: Walnut Wood
Sealed with 3 coats of mineral oil
1 coat of  Boos Block Mystery Oil as the top coat
