KItchen re-do, Take One

by Robin Garr » Sat Sep 21, 2013 7:27 pm

In another thread, I told Jenise that I'd do a quick little video of our recent kitchen re-do. Unfortunately, I was stupid and held my iPhone in portrait position. :P

Nevertheless, I'll post this short video, and try a better one in the next day or two when the light is good and I have time.

Wow, Robin, what a sophisticated result--I'm very impressed! It feels so open and clean. You'll never tire of it.

Beautiful ! I think the U is the most efficient working space in a kitchen. I like that 1 arm is an open serving area...double duty.
Mamma Mia !

Thanks, Jenise! To be honest, we didn't change the footprint. We moved into that "U" when we bought the house in 1994, which makes about 40 percent of the kitchen a work area and leaves the rest for open use, small table and chairs, and of course Roy's cat bench. :D We did move the stove to the peninsula from its former location under the garden window (now work space and dishwasher), and I like it even better - it's more of a true triangle, so I can pretty much do everything without moving more than a step or two.

As I told Jenise, Christina, the footprint was already there, but Mary did a lot of magic with it, including the serving area. We also got very lucky, through a neighbor who does a lot of high-end finish carpentry work for local restaurants, and managed to liberate that seasoned 9-foot oak plank as the counter/bar top. It's a long way from formica and definitely a one-of-a-kind thing!

I love the cat sleeping on the hamper through the whole thing. :)
Enjoy your new kitchen! It's lovely and looks very workable.
Hello. My name is Carrie, and I...I....still like oaked Chardonnay. (I feel so much better now.)
