Here is quick look at what we where dealing with in the beginning:
Here is the new & improved version:
Everything is almost in it's place. The minimal upper cabinets have been so nice. It opens up the room and allows the counter tops to really shine and for us to have "more space" to work. Cooking in here is a breeze and I love to cook now that it's all new and clean.
FYI to those thinking of remodeling your kitchen...BEWARE:
All of your other house hold chores are put on hold. You where pajamas to the hardware store daily. You prefer pizza over any other type of food and you know your delivery man by first-name-basis. You stay late at your day job to avoid going home to do manual labor. Your bathroom will become a washroom, coffee station, kitchen sink, as well as the place you take your paint brushes to rinse them out. Not cool. I think my bathroom needs a face lift after all it has seen in the past few months!
