Planning the Split Level Kitchen

The homeowners are incredibly excited about getting a new kitchen - and for good reason.  The original kitchen was small and awkward and this will be such a great change.

Future Split Level Kitchen 

Their requests were pretty simple:  a white kitchen (but a colored island is okay), brass hardware, an island with stools and a small breakfast nook to provide another dining option.  In addition, they want an appliance garage to hide all their gadgets and reduce the countertop clutter.

Kitchen - Before
So we got to work.  First we addressed the layout.  The kitchen would stay along the back wall of the house, with the refrigerator tucked into the corner created by the stairwell.  We added a new double window over the kitchen sink, to provide views to the backyard.  The stove will be next to the sink with lots of storage around it and a big pantry for storage.

The island will provide some nice counter space for meal prep or a casual meal.  And it's a hardworking space since it also contains the microwave, roll out trash container and large storage drawers.

See the appliance garage tucked next to the refrigerator?  It will be a great place to hide the blender and other appliances.

We will include brass hardware on all the cabinetry

And this gorgeous brass faucet will look great with the farmhouse sink.

The breakfast nook will feature a built in bench (with storage below!) next to the sliding glass door - the perfect spot to sit in the sunshine with a cup of coffee in the morning.
Lead times are long, so we've got everything ordered and hope it will arrive in time.  And in the meantime, we have to rough in the plumbing and electrical!  And walls.... walls would be good! 😂
