Kitchen Remodel

I totally gutted my kitchen and replaced everything … ceiling, floor, walls, cabinets, sink, and countertop. The ceiling is wood tongue-and-groove planks. Floor is 3/4” oak hardwood, and the walls are 3/4” solid pine T&G boards. I also used pine to make all the cabinets and the three doors shown in these photos. I think the doors really give it a country feel. The top cabinets are staggered in height. The bottom cabinet on the far left has four pull-out drawers. Both the top and bottom corner cabinets have lazy susan shelves. Instead of using a pole for the revolving shelves, I have each one supported on a solid piece of wood, so they’re very sturdy and stable and can support a lot of weight. I put two tilt-out drawers under the sink for added storage. The bottom cabinet to the left of the stove pulls the whole way out and has two shelves. I installed the wall boards horizontally instead of vertically and think that makes the room look more spacious. Visitors have commented that it reminds them of a lodge. Next project will be a two-level island with an eating area for the kitchen.

Great job. Looks like this was well thought out. The wife and I love the rustic look as well. As a matter of fact we are just starting on a kitchen project. The similarities are scary seeing yours, except we’re opting for hickory cabs, tile floor and knotty pine for walls and ceiling. Will be a time consuming project. However, we will remodel an extra room so we still have our current kitchen during the process. I would love to see your island once built.
