Reader’s home – kitchen renovation

Posted on Tue, 23 Nov 2010 by KiM

Morgan of Seattle, WA emailed about the recently completed remodel of her mid century modern house and wanted to share her new spiffy kitchen. Here is some info from Morgan: “Here are a few “before” shots of the kitchen…the pictures are the fuzzy wide lens shots that realtors take…it was way worse in person 🙂

A wall came down, the 20 year old laminate floors and formica countertops came out and my dream kitchen with an island went in! We bought this circa 1956 house in Northwest Seattle last spring for its kitchen-remodel potential. Galley kitchens are the norm in Seattle and mid century houses are rare in the close in neighborhoods. When we found this house, we were so excited to have a home where the kitchen was the heart! I had a folder on my desktop full of images from desiretoinspire, ready to put to good use in our design process. Thank you for the inspiration!
The backsplash tile is Villeroy-Boch in an awesomely European large format- 12″ by 36″. After falling in love with $70 a foot tiles at Ann Sacks it was a huge relief to find this at $12 a foot! The cabinets are walnut and the countertops are white quartz.
” I love it all – the walnut cabinetry and the backsplash are HOT, and I’m a sucker for white quartz countertops. Great job Morgan!!! Check out the after photos after the jump!

Reader request – industrial kitchens

Posted on Fri, 5 Nov 2010 by KiM

Today was a bit of a quiet week so I thought I’d squeeze in another reader request since my list is rather lengthy. This one is from Lee: “Do you any inspiration for industrial looking kitchens, doing a kitchen remodel and like the not so clean put together look.” Industrial, not-so-put-together kitchens are my favourites – next to my existing Greentea kitchen that is 🙂 – so I was happy to devour my photo stash on the hunt for some of these types of kitchens. Good luck with your remodel Lee and I hope the following photos help! (P.S. Not that long ago I did a reader request on stainless kitchens which goes with the industrial theme of today’s post).

Reader request – wall ovens

Posted on Thu, 21 Oct 2010 by KiM

Today’s reader request comes from Clare: “we are putting in a new kitchen and changed from a range to a wall oven…. do you have any pictures that you can share with some ideas for the placement of wall ovens.” Doesn’t get much simpler than that! Clare, here are some kitchens with wall ovens to help you plan your kitchen design.
