Update: Owners Kitchen Design

So let me bring you up to speed on the other kitchen.  In the Owner's Unit, we opened up the wall between the new dining room and the kitchen, creating a great new space.  And that gave us the opportunity to set the kitchen up a little differently than the unit next door.

Check it out, it's changed a bit since the last time I shared it with you!  With the new header installed and the wall to the dining room removed, it has a whole different look and feel.
We had to remove the wall between the two kitchens to accommodate new plumbing and electrical, so this photo looks a bit odd.  But once the electrical, plumbing and drywall are done, this will be a wall of cabinets and appliances.  An extra feature we'll be installing -  soundproofing material between the two units, to keep the tenants from driving each other crazy.
Kitchen Starting Point

As a reminder, here's the before picture!

And here's the birds eye view of the design plan:

The appliances are all on one wall, which creates an efficient layout.

And we created this 'hutch' style cabinet to provide extra storage.  The glass cabinet will be lighted.  And we'll include a USB connector as well as an outlet above the counter space.
Like the unit next door, we'll also use Martha Stewart Purestyle Cabinets in 'Heavy Cream' and quartz countertops.  But to change it up a bit, we have a glass and marble backsplash that we'll mix with white subway tile.  
And last, but not least, we'll include an industrial style faucet for the new double, stainless steel sink!

Of course the space still looks a bit rough, but once we finish up the infrastructure, it will be time to install the cabinets!

Pin It


  1. Are you not able to put the sink under the window? Much more pleasant to wash dishes with a window to look out of.

  2. I would have loved to have the sink under the window!!! But unfortunately, there wasn't room for the dishwasher. And to put it back behind the sink would be really awkward. So we ended up with the sink in its current location.
